…as well as the lack of response from the Capitol police. As seen via CBS News, where you can read the full story:
Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser on Thursday criticized the federal Capitol Police for their response to the riots at the Capitol. “Obviously it was a failure or you would not have had police lines breached and people entering the building by breaking windows,” Bowser said.
The mayor said she believes federal law enforcement responded more forcefully to Black Lives Matter civil rights protests in the city last summer than they did to violence Wednesday inside and around the perimeter of the Capitol. She called for an investigation into that apparent disparity.
“We must also understand why the federal law enforcement response was much stronger” during the Black Lives Matter protests, Bowser said.
