I did not see "thousands" of people storming the Capitol Building in any of the videos. There were hundreds of thousands peacefully participating in the event and also a group of hundreds (per CNN) of unidentified people who did storm the Capitol Building and acted violently. There are a lot of assumptions of who they were but the facts are lacking. Sadly their behavior mirrored the behavior of the mobs in Seattle and Portland... ignorance and violence. They need to all be identified, arrested and serve time in prison. This needs to stop on both sides.
