Two men were heard planning to spray "bear repellant" on Capitol officers, including Brian Sicknick, who died as a result of the Jan 6 rioting.
March 15, 2021

Here's hoping the family of Brian Sicknick get some justice for the death of their loved one. CBS:

CBS reports that "Julian Elie Khater, 32, of State College, Pennsylvania, and George Pierre Tanios, 39, of Morgantown, West Virginia, are accused of spraying police officers with a chemical spray. They face nine counts, including assault on a federal officer with a dangerous weapon."

Kater and Tanios appear on surveillance tape talking about "the bear s**t" and were later shown on video to have sprayed the chemical in the Capitol building.
