The U.S. Capitol was breached and attacked for the first time since the War of 1812. A mob of vandals smashed windows, invaded office spaces, and harmed capitol police. Altogether five people died, including US Capitol Police Officer Brian Sicknick. US Attorney for the Western District of Kentucky Robert Duncan said they’ll  prosecute any Kentuckians who were involved in these violent and criminal actions. Duncan said. “Violence and destruction of property do not achieve anything, and are not in line with our Commonwealth’s values.” Kudos to Mr. Duncan and his team of US Attorneys who are upholding the rule of law and prosecuting those who engage in the insurrection. There’s a better way to solve our political disappointments, and the Justice Department is making it clear it is not through violence.
