Lansing, Mish – Government buildings in Lansing have risen in preparation for an expected armed protest in the state capital.
In addition to the Michigan State Police, the Michigan National Guard was activated by Gov. Greten Whitmer.
“First and foremost, I must be sorry and even horrified that we have arrived at this moment,” said retired Brigest. Gen. Michael McDaniel has served as Assistant General of Homeland Security for the Michigan National Guard. “I think we’re starting to see some stratification between these different groups.”
The Capitol may be safe, McDaniel said, but there are more concerns.
“It simply came to our notice then. When you tighten a goal – and we’re dealing with a rebellion or rebellion – what happens is that other flexible goals are sought by the same groups, “he said.
“There are thousands of threats to elected leaders in the state of Michigan,” said Attorney General Dana Nessel. “I personally believe that we need to start cracking down on these threats.”
Security is being beefed up in the capital and surrounding areas as law enforcement agencies across Michigan prepare for the expected armed protests that begin this weekend.
Michigan State Police, working with the Michigan National Guard and the FBI, said it has increased personnel and security at Capitol and downtown Lansing.
Colonel Joe Gaspar, director of the MSP, said: “The security that has been enhanced includes both visible and invisible measures.” “I can assure you that we will take our responsibility to protect the capital and those who work and visit here, and we will be ready to work with our law enforcement partners to ensure law and order.”
