So I can’t comment obvs. My first thought to how easy it was to just walk into the building in this day and age was shocking, even discounting a mob at the door. While there was a time when one could walk into the building and sit in the gallery to watch democracy in action or stop a congressman in the hall and ask him/her a question, it is much more difficult to do these days. As someone on npr (radio) said this morning, what would have kept ISIS from slipping in with a mob of this type and go inside and kill people and/or blow up the building? The fact that the inhouse police force was completely outmanned yesterday I can see why they may not want to make a stand that would have been futile but the more important question is why were there no backup forces at the ready? They knew to expect a crowd since Trump’s rally was a scheduled event, not to mention his beckoning on Twitter. If that had been a BLM protest like what had been going on for the last few months would the cops opened the doors for them and give them such access as was afforded this white mob? There would have been more deaths would be my guess. Talk about white privilege. I would assume there might have been sympathizers in the ranks of those Capitol police. The leaders should be fired and they should all be investigated. Certain politicians thought it was ok to let these militia organize and direct a game of coup to any and all comers, weekend warriors looking to play war games on the capitol grounds. Those congressmen and women have a lot to answer for.
i'm not being a pollyanna type, but i think they will hafta answer for it.
first, DC needs statehood. the fact that the mayor had to go thru fed channels... when we know what the fed asswipes are... is ridiculous.
second, trump (and whatever minions in power beneath him), deliberately fucqued up the response. wouldn't send in the national guard. demanded cops not carry guns and would be confined to things like traffic violations. (pence, that other white meat, had to go behind trump's back to get that whole ball rolling, and of course it took hours.)
third, blatantly, cops, and the cop higher ups. i've talked about cops many times on this board, and i don't have time to rehash it all now. YES, there are good, wunnerful, sacrificing cops who have helped to save me and my family. then, there are the cops who are basically stupid trumper types themselves, who opt for gettin a badge and a gun so they can have power over anyone they don't like. which is basically everyone who doesn't look or think like them. what's all the worse: the heads of the cop unions got there cuz they are the MOST like this. so, ya know, peaceful protesters about health care can get dragged outta their wheelchairs and arrested... BLM protesters can get the shit beat out of em and arrested... yet white nazi thugs can park their asses in pelosi's office and take selfies or piss on the rug, etcetcetc, and it takes hours to send the real troops in to clear em out.
with all that, don't mistake it... the backlash is severe. pelosi already got the sgt at arms guy and the head of capital police to resign.
do you know why?
becuz we are talkin about congressfolk gettin threatened. these people have a lotta power, a lotta money, a lotta sway behind em. this is versus dumb-as-fucque nazi-wannabe assholes who live in their own delusional bubble and think whatever they do for dear leader is bright and shiny.
they're wrong on this.
i dunno if you can see this, but apparently there are already over fifty charges now based on pics of the fucqueheads:
uh oh... just read a cop died of his injuries. y'all know what that does to every charge, right?
