An array of law enforcement agencies prepare for armed protests as violent MAGA demonstrators flood several state capitols.
Around 100 armed rioters gathered in masses, right outside Lansing’s statehouse. In the same way, a similar series of protests took place in the states of New Hampshire, Georgia, Arizona, Oregon, Pennsylvania, and Minnesota too.
On the other hand, the capital Washington DC has literally turned into a fortress with the deployment of about 25,000 National Guard troops. These forces were called in to protect the state capital, right ahead of Joe Biden’s inauguration on Wednesday.
Clearly, armed supporters of Donald Trump’s Republican party intend to deliver a clear message and that’s exactly why security forces are stepping up their game to avoid any unfortunate incident.
Currently, DC appears as a military zone with checkpoints deployed left and right.In the same way, the capital is on high alert with just days left for Biden’s inauguration.
Mega coffee franchise Starbucks also shut down all its locations in New York City as it feared more protests. The news comes as security is beefed around all of the state capitols nationwide.
Michigan began flooding with armed rioters with 20 members of the anti-government Boogaloo movement taking center stage. These numbers are expected to grow in the coming hours. While everything remains peaceful at the moment, confirmed Lansing’s Mayor Andy Schor, only time will tell what happens in the coming days.
Mayor Andy Schor added how it would be remarkable to witness citizens exercising their 1st and 2nd amendment rights, without having to deal with conflicts or any forms of violence.
Sources from Washington DC mentioned how they spotted 22-year-old Guy Berry from Gordonsville, Virginia. He was walking on Massachusettes Avenue NE, right after midnight on Sunday. His gun was very visible, located inside a holster.
The country braces for more violent protests as similar groups of MAGA protesters gathered right outside Ohio, Utah, New Hampshire, and Texas. While arrests are at a bare minimum at the moment, DC cops did mention arresting a man and a woman for an attempt at breaching a ring made of steel.
