Plenty of warning

I suppose the D.C. police, and the Capital police, and the Sergeant-at-Arms will have their apologists but, honestly, I don’t know what to make of their failures yesterday to protect the Capital but that …

  1. Their respective leadership is grossly incompetent, or …

  2. They were cooperating with the insurrection.

After all … I knew that yesterday would be violent.

Somebody named Melissa Ryan knew yesterday was going to be violent.

I had a text discussion with my brother and nephew yesterday morning, and they knew yesterday was going to be violent.

But the pros, the people who draw a salary for protecting the District of Columbia … they didn’t see it coming?

I reject without equivocation any suggestion that nobody imagined Donald Trump would incite violence against another branch of government. He was inciting violence at his rallies w-a-a-a-y back in 2016, and he specifically threatened violence in connection with the Congressional certification of the Electoral College’s vote count; that what it means to say that the Deplorable One-third “… won’t stand for a landslide election victory to be stolen.”

Again, then, we are talking about gross incompetence, or cooperation with the Insurrection. In either case, there needs to be a wholesale cleaning of those organizations’ management ranks.
