Sending Police to help out may be sending the foxes to guard the henhouse.
Acting on tips, several jurisdictions are investigating to see if any of their officers were part of the mob.

The FBI is sending warnings about armed protesters in the capitols of all 50 states beginning Saturday. They suggest this could go on for several days.

I live far, far away from any state capitol. Now I remember why I moved here.

By Googling for negative responses to AH-nold's message, I dredged up the following on the City-Data Forum's thread Gov. Schwarzenegger Calls Trump the Worst President Ever and Condemns Republicans Following Him by someone with username madison999:

People have really gotta stop with the nazi and hitler fear mongering.

Half our country voted to destroy the best economy we've ever seen. We've got problems, but nazis ain't one if them.

Obviously they didn't pay attention to some of the flags that were being carried by the people that stormed the capitol.

Those people were Antifa infil-traitors.

I had no idea that there were so many old guys with huge beards and bellies in Antifa.

They who?

Even though swimming in denial is what's to be expected of cult followers when their idol's leadership causes disaster, it still boggles my mind that many of them are denying the glaring reality that it was their cult leader's supporters who waged an insurrection at the US Capitol, and parrot the raving lunacy that it was "staged by Antifa."

The thing that puzzles me is that their Pied Piper called for exactly this, so it would seem to follow that they would think that when it ensued, it was a Good Thing. Or at least to try to deny that it was a Bad Thing. And indeed many have. Perhaps some are unable to deny it was a Bad Thing, and therefore it could not be attributed to their idol?

Will they also think Antifa staged armed protests insurrections in the run-up to Inauguration Day, should they occur?

I wonder if any idolaters will celebrate Martin Luther King Day on the 18th.

I just read that the FAA has began to restrict certain people from getting on planes. What criteria they are using is not mentioned. The no-fly list was mentioned. They hinted that certain people could be placed on the list. It is my understanding that once a person is placed on the list, there is no way of ever being removed from it. I suspect this is one of the Federal Government's ways of addressing the warnings the FBI has made in the past two days. I expect the FAA will tighten their restrictions more in the coming days.
