I could not believe what I saw today at the capital of the United States. Since I am a retired NYPD officer, I am surprised by President Trump's warnings regarding January 6th that they were not prepared. I can understand why some Republicans are still willing to object to some of the state's votes. I am not sure if he is brainwashing people or they are drinking the same Kool-Aid. Other countries are onlookers as well as I am. I am feeling your disgust and laughter and watching our country bow down to bullshit. The 25th amendment should come into place right now. He still has two weeks to cause havoc. A woman lost her life for a cause that she may not have understood. Trump has lost his mind; he is a bad example to anyone he ever comes across. He is putting the country in danger. President Trump has proven he should be removed from office. They chose not to remove him when he was impeached but will America grow any balls and take him out of the office on the grounds of the 25th amendment. Feedback!!!
The death count has risen to 5 and counting from today's riot. There were parents with children; they alone should have been arrested. If this were black people or Black Lives Matter, there would have been more deaths and arrests. The guards let them gain access. This seems to have been a strategical move,
The FBI knew this would happen because some groups were posting it, and officers took selfies with them. I know corruption is everywhere, but this was so obvious. Only 52 people were arrested. In a case such as this, that number would triple. I believe there were not any wealthy Republicans climbing walls, hanging out of windows. These appeared to be poor and middle class, with a high percentage of white people. They took time off work if they had jobs and purchased plane tickets, hotel stays, and buses. The rioters did this for an overweight, well-fed, so-called rich man who was hiding away and most likely laughing his heart out.
