    At one point, it was like some officers were Tour Guides. SMH! They were escorting the goons out ever so delicately. 🙄 Then the mob looked like they were tourists or on a field trip. 🙄 Just walking through the halls and taking pictures.
    This is America!🤦‍♂️🤨

      @michael boultinghouse Oh please! We got our own. Take them. See where that leads you. 🤣🤣🤣🤣

  2. Apartheid, the american way.

    • @Mutton Chops I think everybody is racist. Especially people who always focus on it. Just like the attack on the Capitol. It’s not about the country. But the color of My skin , If it was my skin color,… Never mind the country was attacked.

    • @Larry Clem you made me think thank you I wish you well.

    • Pièrre Calderone | January 7, 2021 at 9:48 PM | Reply

      I’d love to see a MAGA bear the cross I have, they wouldn’t make it 2 steps.

    • @michael boultinghouse You are the problem with white America. You think Black people asking to be treated the same as white is black supremacy because you don’t want your white privilege taken way so see equality as a threat. That is why these white supremacist are rioting because they can’t accept non-white people have the power to influence elections too.

    • @Pièrre Calderone poor little Pierre. Poor poor pitiful thing. He’s had such a hard time. Nothing is fair. That’s not fair to Pierre.

    Does anyone know of any arrests? I haven’t heard of any. If this was Mexican or black; many would be arrested and DEAD.

    • @Sweger Shanna for the possession of contraband and weapons inside the Federal government premise. That is a felony. Another was filed to the court for the trespassing without authorization.

    • ATOMIC ENERGY | January 7, 2021 at 9:34 PM | Reply

      @Sweger Shanna Breaking into the capitol building while the vice presidwnt is there with a secret service detail is a felony.

    • ATOMIC ENERGY | January 7, 2021 at 9:35 PM | Reply

      @Sweger Shanna Punishable by up to 10 years.

    • Wonder Wonderful | January 7, 2021 at 9:37 PM | Reply

      It was so sad only 50 people arrested that day. They arrested over 500 people on BLM protesters and they were peaceful. But we’re blame for bad actors that were planted. This superiority complex is sickening.

    • @Erasmo Ganceres no problem. I’m also waiting to hear from the Capitol police.

    What a disgrace but as brother Malcolm said the hens are coming home to roost.

    • If only the hens had the courage to set things right when they arrived!

    • Mark Shannon Kirkland | January 7, 2021 at 8:27 PM | Reply

      Yes they are.
      But I don’t think it’s the roost you think it is.

    • @Mark Shannon Kirkland oh it’s exactly the “roost” he thinks.
      When jesus was crucified satan jumped for joy. Had the devil known
      That he played right into gods plan
      He wouldnt have done it.

  6. We all know the answer, those police cannot shoot into the crowd because they could end up hitting a cousin or coworker..

      @Randy Couch give it up A hole

    • @timandsue legere. Time to cut off your welfare! Real Americans are tired of paying for you

    • @Randy Couch Protesting/Rioting over loss of life and unjustified brutality vs Losing an election and defiling our nations leaders senate floors? I mean truly, which side do you think is more justified? Don’t be coy.. too many like you..

    • @Randy Couch Protesting over the safety of you’re races futures and freedoms vs. fools willing to die over a single mans lie.. it’s like educating a middle school kids explaining reality to you.

    • @Akitsu Maru yes exactly right to both your comments.

      And the Politically Correct ignorance continues.
      And the American people are quickly tiring of your woke mentalities which are full of hypocrisy.
      The ridiculous extent to which this liberal culture war is taking America is going to end.
      And it is being faced today, and will be contested everyday going forward.

    It is called white privilege. Welcome to America

    If yesterday’s riot was the BLM it would have been a blood bath.

    • @Avtar Singh please show me one bloodbathed BLM riot…I’ll wait🙄

    • Ricky Valentine | January 7, 2021 at 9:03 PM | Reply

      Really ? I could’ve sworn there was blm riots all summer and there was no blood bath . Actually I recall politicians ordering police to stand down . Weird maybe I m getting old and my memory is failing

    • Knowledge Seeker | January 7, 2021 at 9:05 PM | Reply

      @A L Not necessarily blood baths and I hope this part of history never repeats itself but those pre 60s peaceful MLK marches was pretty brutal….. Those cops were not playing back in those days…..I can only imagine if the million man march in the 90s reacted like trump protesters……LORD HAVE MERCY!!!! 🙏

    • Facts

    • Maga Peaceful and law order and BLM is riot

  11. It was a coup attempt. Why did capital police refuse assistance from other law enforcement agencies? They were bought by Trump! It failed!!

    • Mark Shannon Kirkland | January 7, 2021 at 8:46 PM | Reply

      How can you have a coup attempt?
      Explain that one to me?
      Biden isn’t President yet.
      The REAL coup attempts have been going on for 4 years now, and it’s the Socialist Democrats who’ve been doing that.

  12. Sweger Shanna | January 7, 2021 at 8:01 PM | Reply

    The police need to be held accountable, we aren’t going to let this go.

    • Kevin Jackson | January 7, 2021 at 8:47 PM | Reply

      @Mark Shannon Kirkland Proof BLM attacked the WH???
      Video, proven VERIFIED photographs?

    • @Mark Shannon Kirkland you mean those same blm protestors bombed in dc so donnie doll hands could hold a baby bible ?

    • Jillian Copeland | January 7, 2021 at 9:00 PM | Reply

      @Mark Shannon Kirkland actually the police chief is white and has now resigned! The individual officers who were holding open doors should follow. The same police whose unions funded the racist in chief and held its Christmas party at Trump Hotel, nothing going down there hey!!

    • @Kevin Jackson Portland 2020, federal Buildings attacked by the left. If you can please have the same energy for both sides thank you.

    • @Kevin Jackson your proof before you ask for it, have a good day.

    When you elect a Klan President, you can expect the Klan tantrums till his last day.

  15. kudos premier | January 7, 2021 at 8:17 PM | Reply

    Republicans were involved in this.

  16. The capitol police force needs to be completely replaced, and those present, held accountable for complicity.

  17. Robert Draper | January 7, 2021 at 8:24 PM | Reply

    If this had been BLM they would have been stacking the bodies up like cordwood

  18. Rodney Stewart | January 7, 2021 at 8:37 PM | Reply

    If it was BLM yesterday bullets would be flying and people dying

  19. I bet parents all over the world are changing their minds about sending their kids to school in America because it seems stupidity is contagious here

  20. The American people needs to demand accountability for this attempted coup d’etat.
