On Wednesday July 6th, 2021 a group of rioters breached the U.S. Capitol after a rally for then President Donald Trump. Members of the House and Senate were both inside the building as thousands of rioters surrounded it. The rioting took place as Congress was set to ratify President Joe Biden’s Electoral College win. The U.S. Capitol was both a working office building and a museum, with historic art in the stairwells and on the walls. Before the coronavirus pandemic struck most of the building was open to the public. After the riot the Capitol Police erected 4 miles of security fencing around the perimeter of the capitol. Opponents, including neighborhood residents and some members of Congress argue that the fence has turned the Capitol grounds into a “war zone.” Local city officials say that the fence has disrupted public transportation and prevented residents from accessing parks. Proponents of the fence argue that it is necessary to protect members of congress from violent attacks.
A security fence seems a little petty. People, especially US citizens, shouldn't willy-nilly be attacking it, but also it should be protected. The whole situation needs to be re-evaluated. Perhaps there should be more organization over what is the values of the people, and what is probable cause to create civil war in out nation, what are the liberties for all entities there, and if there are trials, what should it look like.
Yes, in January a group of republican trump supporters broke into the capitol building. Some were escorted out and even held by the hand while walking down the steps. If it were to be a group of people of color, they all would be dead right now, they would've killed them with no hesitation. This just proves white privilege and if people still say it's not real, they're just choosing to not see.
If you need a fence around a Capitol building, then you are afraid of the people and not for them. It's a sign of weak leadership and a hint of tyranny by a legislation. Congress worries about their own security more than the National Security or the border crisis.
It is the citizens of the U.S. property. It is in the constitution. They can't prohibit us from going there. If they can block us off from the people's property then why can't we build a wall around our country?
