Our second guest today is Michael Letts, President, Founder, and CEO of InVestUSA.org. Michael has under 30 years of law enforcement. His organization provides bulletproof vests to police officers through various charitable foundations and sponsorships. He will discuss the actions of retired New York police sergeant Michael Joseph Nichols. With the January sixth committee still trying to find answers regarding what happened, many stories are getting lost in the shuffle, such as the story of retired New York police sergeant Michael Joseph Nichols.
A report from The Epoch Times reveals that the retired officer worked alongside U.S. Capitol Police Lt. Tarik Khalid Johnson to help rescue several other officers from the riot scene. After finding out his hotel was blocked off, Nichols found himself in an unexpected situation, working alongside Johnson and a pair of Oath Keepers to rescue those in peril. Up until this point, not much was known about Nichols’ story. But that’s mainly due to the media and politicians trying to point out parties in this “insurrection” who are to blame instead of pointing out those who were truly trying to make a difference. Michael also discussed what has happened during the last few weeks and why our Police Officers are so important to our safety. In the last few weeks, violence has erupted in San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia, and Chicago, so what can we do to support our Police Forces and First responders?
