Flags flew half-mast across the state Utah on Monday at the request of Gov. Spencer Cox in honor of the U.S. capitol police officer Brian D. Sicknick who died as a result of the riots in D.C. on Wednesday.
In a written statement, Cox said “Sicknick gave his life trying to protect one of this nation’s most revered democratic institutions. We honor his life of dedicated public service as part of U.S. Capitol Police and as a staff sergeant for the New Jersey National Guard. Abby and I extend our deepest sympathies to the Sicknick family and pray for them and our nation at this difficult time.”
