aha, it’s because the rally is over. braynard is warning people to leave peacefully and stay in groups. i guess the cops are anxious about the transition - this crowd will leave the fenced in permitted area and pass a small number of counter protesters across the street.

there seems to be no rhyme or reason for the way the cops keep marching by and reforming their line in front of the capitol reflecting pool. it honestly just seems like they know it makes for a striking photograph - the police protecting the capitol this time.

journalists from all over the world are using the riot cops as the backdrop for their spots. it feels deeply performative on the part of the police. security theater.

last time i walked up the national mall, it was eerily empty, but for the steady stream of people heading toward the capitol, many of whom would go on to break into the building. today it’s just tourists and food trucks & i’m getting some lamb gyro.

something to think about, perhaps, is how much of police behavior is decided based on PR, optics, and overtime scamming rather than actual threat assessment and investigative work ahead of time or during an event.
