Heroic Officer Eugene Goodman used himself as bait to lure rioters away from the Senate and  then the Senate Unanimously Voted To Award Officer Eugene Goodman A Congressional Gold Medal

"Bands of Jan. 6 rioters roamed the Capitol in a menacing hunt for Congressional adversaries of President Trump. Some were thwarted by a Capitol Police officer, Eugene Goodman, who—after being chased up a stairwell—diverted them from a hallway where senators and staff members were scurrying to safety. Throughout the tense encounter, Officer Goodman never drew his gun. (January 6, 2021/Ashley Gilbertson for The New York Times)"

 “The rioters pursued Officer Goodman down another hall and into a larger vestibule where Capitol police backup was waiting to reinforce him. The incident was defused without injury and Senate leaders were able to safely evacuate. 

He courageously risked himself to divert rioters and exemplifies the courage and bravery that is the hallmark of Capitol law enforcement. In a very difficult time, his character shone through.

He is an American hero."
