Rep. John Lewis Being Arrested Along With 200 Others For a Sit-in Protest Outside The Capitol, 2013.

Replying to you for visibility since Capitol Police are coming out saying that they believe many of their coworkers and higher ups were expressly in on the coup plans. Along with leaving cops of color in especially dangerous situations like the guy in the above video. Copy-paste comment below --- --- Like look at the video above! Why the fuck is it even possible that a cop could be on his own, in standard uniform, having to use himself as bate to lure terrorists away from elected officials? > ...I found out what they were planning when a friend of mine screenshot me an Instagram story from the Proud Boys saying, Were breaching the Capitol today, guys. I hope yall ready. **The officer, who asked to remain anonymous out of fear of retaliation from his superiors**, told BuzzFeed News... > ...**The officer said that while the departments upper management had been telling them to prepare for Wednesdays storming of the Capitol like they would for any other protest...** > **"...They had all been issued gas masks, for example, but management didnt tell them to bring them in on the day.** Capitol Police did not respond to BuzzFeed News request for comment about the allegations made by officers..." > "**...The officer even described coming face-to-face with police officers from across the country in the mob. He said some of them flashed their badges,** telling him to let them through, and trying to explain that this was all part of a movement that was supposed to help..." > ...Theres quite a big difference when the Black Lives Matter protests come up to the Capitol, he said. **]On Wednesday], some officers were catering to the rioters...** > * ]BuzzFeed News]() ^ There's also reports coming in from anonymous cops of color talking about how management purposely undersold what was going on, left the cops unprepared, had them understaffed, had cops of color in dangerous positions. Plus, cops being actively involved with the plot. Not to mention if cops are saying that their coworkers were helping the terrorists, it means its even worse than it seems from the various videos we have. That's nothing something a cop would say lightly even in an anonymous interview.

Meanwhile, ]here's a Youtube playlist with over 100 videos on the Capitol riots, in roughly chronological order.]() USCP was woefully understaffed and unprepared.
And this is why the police cant be reformed.


What You Really Think

> **UPDATE October 9,** **2013:** As of early Wednesday morning, all of the demonstrators arrested at Tuesday's rally have been processed and released. A U.S. Capitol Police spokesperson also provided the final tally of protesters arrested, and the article below has been updated to reflect that number.

Heads should be rolling.

Get fucked nerd.

We love you, go forth and remember this day!

Well its not like they are not being treated like terrorizts.

The cop was a Trump supporter, too. Or am I wrong?

There was far more than 200 that stormed the Capitol. Don't lie just because it fits your story better. You can still get the same point across by being factual and say that the police onsite were horribly outnumbered and understaffed to deal with the number of people showing up to eventually storm the building. Perhaps even intentionally understaffed which resulted in a cop being beaten to death.

>Escort them out pleasantly. ]About 120 were arrested](). The 200 arrests from Lewis' sit-in were made easier by the docile nature of that protest relative to the chaos of the capitol invasion.

More like 200,000.

Are you saying you wanted a shootout and bloodbath to happen inside and all around the Capitol, even as members of Congress were inside trying to certify an election? ***nulb.

Was any of the people who stormed the capital armed? If so, was it a lot of people?

We still live in these barbaric times. Weve got to change the mentality of the people, but itll take some time.

It was way more than 200 people, the police shot a woman in the face while there was two cops behind her who could have arrested her easily. Also everyone that was inside is getting arrested by the fbi as they should be. Stop lying to fit your political agenda, you Americans really have a problem with that.

I think you watch too many movies where everyone's handcuffed at the end of a shootout. They choose the path of least resistance and catch them later.

So you don't need to change tactics in different situations? Woah dude, you should teach cops.

Its because it was a set up. All this just proves something was up, they let them in. Its a stunt pulled by a hidden world government.

I cant remember... how many police were beat to death at this protest?

Thank you. He is a true Christian in my eyes.

One of the many differences between this fail coup and the BLM/civil rights protests is that the leaders of BLM/civil rights were on the front lines putting their safety and freedom on the line. The leaders of the failed coup sent their horde into danger and then watched from safety as they try to avoid any culpability.

Raphael Warnock was arrested in the Rotunda when him and other leaders knelt to pray and sing in protest of proposed healthcare cuts. There's been peaceful protests inside, there's been shouting protests inside (healthcare especially) but there's never been terrorists inside.

You should also take special notice of the fact that he was not white.

Yup. Always have been. As long as those people are black.

Omg they did? Wtf did they do? Pieces of shit.

Build a bigger one. I'd happily donate.

I think a photo of the defaced memorial would be worth posting.

The logic I've heard and would love to believe is that they're waiting until Trump is out of office and cannot pardon them. That is probably too clever to be true, but they optimist in me wants to believe it.

Existing while Black.

Perfect. But change protesting to rioting and put black in all caps to really drive the point home to the klans.

Ted has a legion. He has a family.

Without smashing up the place and killing anyone too! Imagine that!?!

Fascist minds think a like.

Good guy. Giant of civil rights and black leadership. He was in public life for decades and afaik was never tarnished with any sort of major scandal or misstep, a legitimate role model and good person.

Meanwhile. Homie literally walked out with a damn podium. And another with the SPEAKER OF THE UNITED STATES HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES MAIL. But yep. Pack it up boys, this case is closed.

Especially after he directly said he'd go with them instead he just went home to jerk off to the chaos on TV.

Trump's white though.

You can actually hire the police to arrest you for a protest: ]]() Berkley PD used to have a page dedicated to how to organize a planned arrest (certain time, certain place, how to let police know when to move in, etc.). In this case it was the 2013 Immigration protest in DC.

For being Black.

While I dont like trump, thats a horrible thought to have. Beliefs should not lead to arrests.

Who are you - the Thought Police?

Being stupid is not a crime.

We can talk about that. As far as I've read and understand you are correct in nobody being shot but no one was arrested? They were arrested on felony charges and conspiracy to disrupt a legislative session on site, later pleading guilty to lesser charges. Their weapons were taken from them. There is video footage and from what I've seen, the way they "stormed" the California State Capitol was a look calmer. Not to mention the reason for their demonstration was to oppose the Mulford Act which would prevent Californian's from open carrying. This act was backed by the NRA. There are lot's of details and the circumstances do differ quite a bit but I'd love to go into this more as I find this stuff fascinating.

Situation seems alittle different then what happened last week, wouldn't you say?

The sad thing is that you have to lie to us and yourself just to believe this bullshit, and when people point out you're wrong, you'll probably just double down, retreat to a safe space, and continue feeling persecuted.

"After the state police questioned the men, they returned the weapons to them because the intruders had broken no law. Following their release by the state police, the men left the Capitol and rejoined some companions who remained outside during the incident. They then drove off." thats pretty different from "beat a cop with a fire extinguisher until he died".

Were you talking about Black Panthers BEFORE the deranged MAGAminions stormed the Capitol to attempt a coup? Also, vastly different crowd and reasons for doing what they did, but that doesn't matter to you.

Really, *really* weird to bring up a 50 year event from a very different time. Like man, that's over 30 years before I was even born. That's older than my *dad*.

History doesn't repeat itself, but there are ]echos](): > As the crowd swelled to several hundred, demonstrators began to chant to the Capitol, and no justice, no peace. The Metropolitan Police Department shut down streets and intersections as they progressed. By the time the procession reached the U.S. Capitol, it appeared to be close to 1,000 people. > The demonstrators were greeted by barricades erected by the U.S. Capitol police on the West steps of the Capitol. Shortly after arriving, demonstrators broke through the barricades chanting, This is our house. Later that day 5 police officers were killed at a similar event in ]Dallas]() Take it for what you will.

Right here.

Why are you such a coward that the phrase Black Lives Matter triggers and enrages you? The phrase "Save the rain forests" doesn't mean "Screw all the other forests".

Not storming the Capitol.

In the heart of every decent human worldwide [?].

Protesting is fine. Staging a fascist coup is different.

Not cop killers.

Don't hold your breath.

He won't. The only things bernie and biden have in common is the political party and the color of their skins.

>He tore apart nearly all of our inalienable rights and opened the door for an authoritarian jackass like Dump to take power. Sorry? Maybe I'm from another timeline entirely, but I don't recall any such thing. Are you going to provide any concrete examples of this? How Obama "tore apart inalienable rights" and how he "opened the door for an authoritarian jackass like Dump to take power"? Democracy allows anyone to take power *if people elect them*. People elected Trump. Yes, through a shitty obfuscated bullshit electoral system, but that wasn't Obama's making - it's been like that for a very long time.

> He tore apart nearly all of our inalienable rights Any examples?

Lol Jesus fucking Christ.

The Patriot Act would like to say Hi.
