The scene before tomorrow’s Electoral College vote certification protests

I do not find myself particularly comforted by the thought of police being near where these groups were gathered. It’s not because I don’t trust the police to behave fairly and take care of business, so to speak, without being discriminatory. It’s because I’m worried that if something were to happen to an innocent passerby, it might not be readily apparent to any responding officers that a particular victim was neither a guilty party nor someone who had not brought this upon themselves. So if for some reason I’m being beaten up, I would not be 100% certain that it would be cops immediately to the rescue.
