Montpelier PD, Capitol police warn of possible armed protest Jan. 17 at State House, Inauguration Day “insurrection”

Law Enforcement is aware of calls encouraging people to arm themselves and center at all State Capitols in the United States, to include Montpelier, specifically on the date of January 17, 2021. We are also aware of national trends warning of and encouraging an insurrection on January 20, 2021, the date in which President-elect Joseph R. Biden will be sworn in as the 46th President.

Were our people part of the storming of the Capitol Building? The short answer is “No”. To my knowledge, none of our party took part in “storming” the barricades or entering the building. Still, most of us were supportive of gathering at the Capitol Building at that critical time. It seemed important for our representatives in Congress to see the crowd that had gathered from all over the country to support our President.
