  1. To use a trope from horror movies, the stalker was calling from INSIDE the house.

  2. You mean it was a planned 18 U.S. Code § 2331. Section 5. the term “domestic terrorism” means activities that—
    (A) involve acts dangerous to human life that are a violation of the criminal laws of the United States or of any State;
    (B) appear to be intended—
    (i) to intimidate or coerce a civilian population;
    (ii) to influence the policy of a government by intimidation or coercion; or
    (iii) to affect the conduct of a government by mass destruction, assassination, or kidnapping; and
    (C) occur primarily within the territorial jurisdiction of the United States.

    You had all the intel warnings you needed. If you didn’t believe them, why would you believe the same warnings from a new “bureau”? The people in charge were warned of coming violence, and they didn’t miss it – they allowed it.

    • Because they protect only them its easier to give money to someone that does NOTHING else then babysitten

      *America can NOT claim to be the greatest nation on earth or the most exceptional if it can NOT defend its center of government, the Capitol, from domestic terrorist attack. The Capitol Police need to change its name to the more apt Keystone Kops.*

    • They have a new acting police chief who was put in on January 8th.

  4. You didn’t “miss it” you ignored it and ordered your men not to use tactics similar to the tactics used on BLM protesters!

    • @Lisa M it was for assault and you didn’t mention anything about resisting arrest

      @truth troll Excellent response!

    • @Margaret L Wiltfong Tovrea thank you! 👍😉

      @truth troll
      Well said 👍👍👍

    • @Eric Klaus you are absolutely wrong, the warrant was for carrying a weapon without a permit and fleeing police, there are charges concerning a robbery but that case wasn’t even due to be heard until August. _try confirming facts before posting and you won’t be made to look deceptive or outright stupid so easily_ 😉

    “…Missed Warnings Of January 6th Siege” re-affirm, yet again, that “Jan621” Insurrectionist DJT is “utterly incompetent” as per the words of both his own Federal Judge elder-sister Maryanne Trump Barry and his own Clinical Psychologist niece Dr. Mary Trump. May “Imp2POTUS45” always hear “You’re fired” via the unwavering reality of election results that reject him who is the cause of “Mourning In America.”

  6. The first thing the Capitol Police need is new leadership from top to bottom. Anyone who watched the hearings where they testified knows that no one smarter than their supervisor has been promoted in a very long time.

    Hold those who were negligent accountable

    • Exactly! Even a simple position in a small private company can easily hold the incumbent responsible if something happened to his area of responsibility due to his negligence. But this one with all those around pointing to that one man responsible and still being allowed to go scott free and continue to destabilize democracy…what’s happening to USA?

  8. Anyone that still supports Trump is declaring that they support domestic terrorism as well.

      @Josef no, they were revolutionaries. An insurrection happens quickly, a revolution is a longer period of time

    • @Dale Hartley TDs is worse than covid-19 you better be careful there bud

    • @PaulScott Rock BLM and antifa do hate America very true

    • So does that mean anyone who supports the democrats supports domestic terrorism too? Because Antifa/BLM have caused 1000 times more terrorism to America in the last 12 months than 1 riot on Jan 6th and that’s a fact.

      @Josef Trump Delusional syndrome is for his cultist there bud…they are the ones that suffer from it.

  9. Who had the most to gain? There’s who allowed this to happen. Your welcome.

  10. They didn’t miss the signs they ignored it, only question is WHY?

    • Demetria Karnavas | April 15, 2021 at 4:49 PM | Reply

      The entire country knew there would be trouble at the Capital on Jan 6th. The decision was made from the inside not to fortify the Capital and to hang those officers out to dry who were stationed there that day.

    • Octobers Child | April 15, 2021 at 5:08 PM | Reply

      @Demetria Karnavas MmmmHmmm that’s right!

  11. Didn’t miss anything , they just didn’t care.

  12. What happened Jan. 6 is exactly what was meant to happen. The former occupant of the White House appointed, hired, and directed others to hire individuals whose loyalty was beyond question. The warnings were purposefully slow-walked, after hours, into a business email account that would not be checked until Jan. 6.

    The head of the FBI is a tRumP appointee, and a traitor. I do not trust anything from the DOJ or the FBI, and I will not until christopher wray is removed, and the DOJ thoroughly cleansed.

  13. The federal govt is so dysfunctional that our founding fathers are rolling over in their graves.

      The Russians and Chinese don’t have to lift a finger to harm the US; its own government is doing that job itself. Look at how the Capitol Police defended America’s political leaders on January 6th. It’s good news for all foreign adversaries.

  14. More people arrested on Miami beach during spring break one weekend than January 6th attack on our Capital hill 2/3rd of our Government … VP, congressmen , Senators were all in one place when the ex-President told them to go down there … it is unbelievable…

    Everyone knew. Trump announced it would be wild. We bought popcorn and everything to watch it on TV. Lol

  16. I think anyone on social media knew it was going to happen.

    I do not believe for a minute they missed the warning rather it was deliberately ignored to allow the insurrection. Purge the security forces this fiasco was allowed to happen.

    How many more people at a rally does it take to raise security to the MAX Level ??..Just Askin’ !!

    Because of the economic crisis and the rate of unemployment now is the best time to invest and make money 💯
