Stay Safe While Political Tensions Heat Up
(UnitedVoice.com) – The January 6 incident on Capitol Hill has left many lawmakers concerned that a similar incident might happen in the lead-up to inauguration day. Now, the FBI director has also expressed concern.
On Thursday, January 14, FBI Director Christopher Wray briefed Vice President Mike Pence about inauguration security. The director said his agency is tracking “online chatter” that’s “concerning.” He said there’s a potential for violent demonstrations in state capitals across America, as well as more unrest in Washington, DC. The director issued a warning to those who might want to carry out violence, saying FBI agents are “coming to find” them.

While President Trump has repeatedly called for peace and respect for the Rule of Law, Americans should prepare themselves for the potential for violence over the next few days. Take money out of the bank so that you have cash on hand. Make sure you have enough food and water for a few days. You also might want to consider staying home as much as possible. At the end of the day, you can’t control radicals who want to carry out violence, but you can control your family’s safety.
