Protestors Rally At State Capitol

A small group of armed protestors rallied outside the state capitol Sunday afternoon

The Associated Press says the demonstration was peaceful, but about a dozen of the protestors were openly armed. Some of them promoted the an anti-government movement that references a second U.S. civil war.

Other protestors claimed the election was stolen and wore apparel supporting President Trump.

Ground windows were boarded up on several buildings in downtown Lansing, as well as Gov. Whitmer’s office. And a six-foot fence was put up around the Capitol Building and law enforcement officials were present at the protest.

The FBI had warned of potential armed protests at the U.S. capitol as well as all 50 state capitols this weekend.
