Washington — Hundreds of demonstrators have appeared in Washington to help those accused of the January riots behind the fortified Capitol, but they are very much due to the presence of media and heavy police. There were many.
US Capitol Police didn’t seize the opportunity when hundreds of police officers were brought to Washington to avoid repeated pre-inauguration attacks.
The fence around the Capitol was replaced, the Municipal Police were fully activated, and the Capitol Police sought help from the National Guard.
There were some disputes as the rally began around noon on Saturday and one was arrested for holding a knife, but no major incidents were reported early on.
