UPDATE: On January 6, 2021, thousands of angry, far-right Trump supporters stormed the US Capitol. So far, five people are dead. Rioters constructed a gallows (complete with hanging noose) outside the building, others carried guns, zip-ties, pepper spray, tear gas, molotov cocktails, and other devices suggesting altercations and violence were part of their plan. At least three explosive devices were planted and recovered by authorities.
