This is absolutely ridiculous. The courts have said the administration can close the Capitol at it’s normal closing time. Close the Capitol and arrest the squatters. Now.
Capitol Police Chief Charles Tubbs was attempting to convince the demonstrators to leave the building and return in the morning.
“All I’m asking you to do, from the bottom of my heart, is leave cooperatively,” Tubbs said.
He told the demonstrators, “Don’t ruin it by not complying.”
They violated the court order when they swarmed the Capitol last night. They vandalized the Capitol last night. They broke the peace by attempting to prevent the State Assembly from meeting. It’s time to take the kid gloves off and put the handcuffs on every last one of them.
If Tubbs is really being held back by Department of Administration Secretary Mike Huebsch, you would think that Tubbs would have at least the self-respect to tell Huebsch to go to hell. How did Tubbs ever get into law enforcement anyway?
“Please Mr. Bank Robber, only take part of the money.”
