National Guard, state troopers in place at Capitol in Olympia ahead of legislative session

New security measures at the state Capitol in Olympia were in place early Sunday in response to riots at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., and the governor's mansion being breached earlier this week.
The Washington State Patrol (WSP) is tightening security around the Capitol and Gov. Jay Inslee on Friday activated 750 Washington State National Guard members and a "large" number of state troopers to help protect the Capitol Campus. The National Guard will be in place for at least 48 hours.
"Because of proximity to the house and senate chambers and threats we’ve heard from folks to enter the building illegally and to be disruptive, the public’s not going to be allowed [in]," said Chris Loftis with WSP.
WSP said the response is the largest on the Capitol Campus in the state's history and it serves two purposes, for protection but also to send a message about democracy.
"The democratic process is important and we're going to protect it. There were some people last week here and in Washington D.C. that disrespected that process and brought violence and we're not going to allow that to happen," said Loftis.

Our nation's capital is about to get the shutdown? Or is Congress feeling the uneasiness of their attempts at attacking the Constitution, aka domestic enemies?

Get used to 7 foot high fences and national guard troops in Washington DC, it is the new norm and will not change for a long time. More than 75+ million Americans are mad as hell about the way our country is run. The only thing the peaceful protestors forgot to bring were matches. The summer of love peaceful protest, it is exactly the same as in Seattle, and Portland.

They should all arrest auntifa and Blame! Those are the worst terrorist in america! This great constitution allows we the free Americans to protest but thanks to auntifa they paved the way for mass violence and destruction to Seattle, california, NY and now washington! Who ever cheers for these anti-american disgusting terrorist like auntifa or BLaM are racists should all go to prison. They should be shut down off of social media!

Why is no one talking about how there was 2 Capitol police officers killed and another additional 20 critical injured and currently in the hospital fighting for their lives? Why you may ask? For doing their jobs... Just because they have badges and they wear uniforms doesn't mean they are bad people not every officer is a bad person they have families, jobs bills to pay but they get treated like animals brutally beaten for doing their jobs non-lethal....

Take a vote to go into hiding and do the whip cracking from the safety of their towers. Cowards want to place restrictions on the masses and take away freedoms, but don't have the nerve to face the people they are supposed serve and who's lives they are destroying. Liberal elitist's they know whats best for you. Some real tough investigative reporting there well done king5.
