When the Trump worshippers literally rioted in Washington D.C. (Nov 15th, 2020), tearing down corporate-owned Black Lives Matter boards off the LiUNA building, Metro PD (Washington D.C. police) came out of nowhere in full-body melee armor. Let did literally nothing after walking over to the rioting location. No arrests, no snatch ups, no physical confrontation. This is what they came out in. This is what tax dollars are spent on. Keep in mind that the Trump worshippers are mostly from out of town; not from D.C. The police defended them over actual D.C. residents. This is why people call for defunding the police.
