Some inconsistency with the Capitol security detail has immerged. Former U.S. Capitol Police chief Steven Sund said he called for the national guard six times and was denied. Chief Sund was forced to resign last week when Speaker Nancy Pelosi called for him to step down.

Sund says he requested assistance six times ahead of the protests at the Capitol. Additionally, in Washington, D.C., Mayor Muriel Bowser insisted on a light police presence at the Capitol. She reportedly wanted to minimize police abuse.

The inconsistency of this entire situation seems bizarre. A special investigation should take place to find out details on the protocol. Was this security detail handled in an optimal manner?

Here are some posts about the event:

It is unclear exactly what happened. Hopefully more clarity emerges in the upcoming days.
