The events in Washington DC's Capitol Hill have left many of us shaking our heads in disbelief.
But really, is anyone surprised (apart from security forces who are supposed to stand up to a mob wanting to violently disrupt Congress and take over the government that is)?

This article does an excellent job outlining events leading up to this week's scenes - unprecedented in modern times. Just in case security forces want to break away from having selfies with insurrectionists/a.k.a. Trump supporters, I suggest they read it and get prepared for the next 13 days!
