Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Saturday, October 02, 2021

Newly obtained recordings show US Park Police overwhelmed on January 6, hours before rioters attacked the Capitol, with insufficient resources and action taken to control the fray across the city. Seven hours of radio recordings from Park Police, obtained and reviewed by CREW, reveal a law enforcement agency inundated with risks before then-President Trump even gave his fateful speech, with thousands of unattended vehicles and bags, mobs of protestors at the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument and armed individuals. The recordings also make plain the difference in response between the hands off approach taken with pro-Trump protestors who would later attack the Capitol and the violent action taken against peaceful protestors for racial justice in Lafayette Square seven months earlier.

Whoever gave the order to let it happen better have evidence the instructions to do so came from higher up.

Spoiler Alert, Tor.

Trump gave the Order to 'Stand Down' on controlling rioters, and People died.

We all know it; now we get a long series of "Benghazi-esque" Hearings to prove it.

"Park Police officers were instructed"

Presumably they were instructed by the former head of the Park Police Gregory T. Monahan.
The same guy who ordered Park Police to tear gas Lafayette Square for Trump's uninvited photo-op at a church.
