Well, Matt Grocott had quite a day last Wednesday (“My experience Jan. 6” in the Jan. 12 edition of the Daily Journal). Ironically, his encounter with a violent protester provided him the opportunity to empathize with the scores of Congress members, senators and staffers who were threatened and brutalized by his fellow Trump supporters.

Mr. Aydelott – I’m sure you can sympathize with all the shopowners and fellow citizens who were vandalized and threatened, and brutalized during the numerous BLM and Antifa protests and in the pork CHOP zone. How much damage was caused by these “peaceful” protestors? How many associated deaths? Maybe you can donate some funds to these victims.
