New fence going up around Captiol

Washington Post love updates:

Crews quickly began erecting tall black fences around the perimeter of the Capitol grounds just after 10:30 a.m. Thursday. Two Capitol Police officers said the fencing was being assembled around the Capitol as a precautionary measure after Wednesday’s events.

3. In fairness, the fencing would be put up about this time to prepare for the Inauguration.

4. I dont think a fence would have stopped that massive mob yesterday.

The solution is more about the level of response. The police were too soft. They needed tear gas or rubber bullets or firehose.. if that fails real bullets.

7. Firehose would have worked great.

From what I understand, it was pretty chilly yesterday. Getting soaked with water in cold weather is a quick way to take down even the most determined mobbers.
