    I'm hearing two different versions: Police at Arizona Capitol fire tear gas, disperse Roe v. Wade abortion protesters (fox10phoenix.com)

    [​IMG]

    Some of the protesters did become violent and caused vandalism, but most remained peaceful.

    But at least no one was injured.

    No one was held hostage either.

    The last paragraph in the statement says it all. People must get out and vote in all levels of government. Trying to access the facts and ignore political points on either side of the campagne.

    FoxNews, so not a creditable source.
    But assuming at least the gist of it is true, it is high time that the Jan6 commission gets it act together and that the Donald and his co-conspirators get indicted and sentenced. It might also help when sentence for the Jan6th insurrectionist get published more often.
    When the trust in the legal system gets eroded, people start doing illegal things.

    No source, my opinion.
    What do you think? Will it help the GOP?

    While such violence is abhorrent, they didn't break
    into the Capitol attempting to over-turn an election.
    Or threaten to hang Mike Pence for upholding the
    Constitution when his partner attempted a coup.
    In short, a vast difference in scale.

    Just one small question.
    Have you ever watched a Fox News news program or are you just echoing what you have heard from the rest of your crowd?

    It wasn't entirely peaceful. There were some who tried to break into the building, and there were some memorials defaced, such as the Korean War Memorial and the Operation Enduring Freedom Memorial. They also defaced the Arizona Law Enforcement Canine Memorial, which is absolutely uncalled for. The dogs had nothing to do with the overturning of Roe v. Wade.
