I Keep Hearing the Capitol Protesters Were “Let in” So I Am Having a Hard Time Understanding This Video
And people outnumbering and physically overtaking law enforcement officers
Editor’s note: On the other hand why was the police unprepared and under-strength? Surprise, miscalculation, underestimating the enemy, or did somebody plan to fail?
IMPORTANT: this is exact moment the siege of the Capitol building began as the two men in front ripped down a preliminary barrier & rushed officers who were behind a 2nd barrier
They then encouraged others to follow their lead. Officers appeared to be taken completely off guard pic.twitter.com/LE0a01PXBi

People keep telling me that these rioters were calmly let in and peacefully assembled inside the Capitol. What exactly am I missing here?
Please watch the video.
Also, below is the clip people keep passing around to “prove” that the protesters were “let in.” Do they not notice the fact that tons of people were already inside the perimeter (see first video) and beckoning these other folks inside? What were the cops gonna do?
they didn’t “breach” or “storm” the capitol building THEY WERE LET IN pic.twitter.com/SVeo6BcFV0
