National Guard, state troopers in place at Capitol in Olympia ahead of legislative session

New security measures at the state Capitol in Olympia were in place early Sunday in response to riots at the U.S. Capitol in Washington, D.C., and the governor's mansion being breached earlier this week.
The Washington State Patrol (WSP) is tightening security around the Capitol and Gov. Jay Inslee on Friday activated 750 Washington State National Guard members and a "large" number of state troopers to help protect the Capitol Campus. The National Guard will be in place for at least 48 hours.
"Because of proximity to the house and senate chambers and threats we’ve heard from folks to enter the building illegally and to be disruptive, the public’s not going to be allowed [in]," said Chris Loftis with WSP.
WSP said the response is the largest on the Capitol Campus in the state's history and it serves two purposes, for protection but also to send a message about democracy.
"The democratic process is important and we're going to protect it. There were some people last week here and in Washington D.C. that disrespected that process and brought violence and we're not going to allow that to happen," said Loftis.

    If you need 20,000 troops to protect your inauguration from the people, then you most likely weren't elected by the people.

    Get used to 7 foot high fences and national guard troops in Washington DC, it is the new norm and will not change for a long time. More than 75+ million Americans are mad as hell about the way our country is run. The only thing the peaceful protestors forgot to bring were matches. The summer of love peaceful protest, it is exactly the same as in Seattle, and Portland.

    Why is no one talking about how there was 2 Capitol police officers killed and another additional 20 critical injured and currently in the hospital fighting for their lives? Why you may ask? For doing their jobs... Just because they have badges and they wear uniforms doesn't mean they are bad people not every officer is a bad person they have families, jobs bills to pay but they get treated like animals brutally beaten for doing their jobs non-lethal....

Liberal elitist's they know whats best for you. Some real tough investigative reporting there well done king5.

    vvLook at all these blank, fresh Profiles, each and every one them spouting their opinions, ask for peace but incite violence and riots, then wonder why the police force or homeland security comes out to deal with the Rioters saying their being oppressed as an American, no you're a traitor to Amercia for enacting hate against another American. Just do as your wife or husband asks and pick up the milk at the store from your grocery run and stop helping feed the flames. Oh btw all your taxes and extra costs on your checks go into those tear gas canisters you're so proudly against, that's reality. All your hardwork gets put back into the system and used against you, so head home pop a beer and watch a football game :).

Cowards know what’s coming King County’s rule the state because of the population they’re in but also because they have more registered voters in eligible voters they have more votes than registered voters and thus they rule the state however they adjust the votes to your time is up with that man’s hand of God’s hand your time is up.

    A lot of you have been referencing what happened in Seattle. That was terrible, but we can not change the past. What we can do though is control the present, our actions now & in the future. Have we not learned anything from history? Why do a lot of protesters think that breaking into buildings, rioting & hurting people as part of their constitutional right? Like they shouldn't be penalized for obstruction of property, trespassing & creating violence? Like shoving a guard that was just there trying to do their job. What happened to just peaceful protesting? What are you even protesting for? Do you know? Terrorizing your own country, it is embarrassing. All because of what?
