There's a difference between a city wide riot and a riot focused on a singular building. No city in America, even "red" cities has enough police presence to control a city wide riot. If the entire population of Dallas decided to have a free for all in the entire metroplex, the police would have to just sit there and take it. They would be able to do nothing more than focus on a few buildings and otherwise let the mob rampage destroy the rest of the city. Putting 5 or 10 cops on every block wouldn't do jack to control a city wide riot. Protecting an individual building is different. Police do have the resources to prevent an incursion into the capitol building, or city hall, or the supreme court. They have deadly force authorization to protect those buildings, and they should use it. I don't give a **** if the rioters/terrorists are white rednecks or antifa/BLM. We need to start seeing dead people on the steps of these buildings when they try to breach. Until that happens, expect this ridiculousness to continue. 95% of the capitol police force needs to be fired for dereliction of duty and gross incompetence. Most of them are cowards who are afraid to stand up to criminals/terrorists. How stupid must Al Qaeda feel right now? All they had to do was storm the capitol building with a 100 sympathizers and the pathetic police would just let them in without firing a shot. We spend trillions of dollars on police/military and can't even protect one government building. Our defense mobilization is a joke.
