FBI warns of armed protests at state capitals

Tue 1-12-2021

(St. Paul, MN) --  The F-B-I is warning of plans for armed protests at all 50 state capitols and in Washington, D-C prior to the inauguration of Joe Biden. 

Governor Tim Walz says  Wednesday's attack on the U-S Capitol has undermined the sense of security in the nation.   Walz said the State Patrol moved his 14-year-old son from the Governor's residence to a safe location after protesters in Minnesota reportedly talked about, "taking the governor and his family prisoner, and there may casualties."  

Senate Majority Leader Paul Gazelka said in a statement, "you may feel angry or feel you have been wronged, but that is  never an excuse for violent language or destructive behavior."
