Joe Biden and Colorado U.S. Rep. Jason Crow believe there’s a double standard in how police treated mostly white Capitol protestors this week and how
mostly white antifa and BLM rioters were treated last summer during thousands of protests.
Crow is demanding answers:
I’m struck by the difference between Black Lives Matter protests and the attack on the Capitol by terrorists.

Here’s some answers:
The House Sergeant at Arms is responsible for Capitol security. Who hired him? You did, Congressman. He’s elected by the House of Representatives.
Here’s another answer:
Capitol Hill Police on Wednesday shot and killed 35-year-old Ashli Babbit, an Air Force veteran from San Diego.
At more than 8,000 of protests held last summer, nearly a dozen protestors were shot and killed by others involved in the riot, but only one was killed by a police officer.
In Las Vegas, Jorge Gomez was wearing body armor and carrying several guns when he was shot to death by Las Vegas police at a protest in June. Before he was shot, several protesters told Gomez they disapproved of him being armed, and even a journalist questioned him about why he was holding his gun in his hand with his finger on the trigger, the Las Vegas Sun reported. Las Vegas police officer Shay Mikalonis was shot in the head during the same protest, and reportedly remains paralyzed from the injury.
Capitol Hill Police protected Biden throughout his decades in Congress. Now all of a sudden, they’re racist cops.
“If it had been a group of Black Lives Matter protesting yesterday … they would have been treated very, very differently than the mob of thugs that stormed the Capitol. We all know that’s true, and it is unacceptable.”
It’s unacceptable to our incoming president of the United States that more protestors weren’t killed during the Capitol riot to even the score?
Come on, man.
