'We are prepared': Law enforcement stresses readiness ahead of right-wing rally

Law enforcement leaders were unified in their message on Friday: We are prepared for the "Justice for J6" rally.

The event on Saturday, billed as a protest against defendants being detained in connection with the Jan. 6 insurrection, has law enforcement on high alert as they seek to avoid the kind of violence that ensued during the Capitol riot.

"There have been some threats of violence associated with the events for tomorrow. And we have a strong plan in place to ensure that it remains peaceful and that if violence does occur, that we can stop it as quickly as possible," U.S. Capitol Police Chief J. Tom Manger told reporters at a press conference on Friday.

"Over the last eight months, the leadership of the U.S. Capitol Police Department has been preparing, working to ensure that we don't have a repeat of January 6," Manger continued.


Let's hope so.
