Cops Bring Military-Grade Armored Truck to Arrest Proud Boy in NYC

The brute show of force belies just how seriously law enforcement are taking the threats that Proud Boys and others are making online.

As the FBI continues to warn that far-right extremists are plotting further attacks on government facilities in the coming days, law enforcement and the National Guard are beefing up their operations from coast to coast.

In Washington DC, tens of thousands of Guardsmen will be on hand to keep the capital, (and Capitol) safe as Joe Biden is inaugurated on January 20th.  The scenes were surreal, with Twitter users sharing a number of images of soldiers sleeping in some of the nation’s most hallowed hallways.

This sort of brute display of force was also being applied to arrests of members of the Proud Boys, who may have been involved in making threats of future attacks.
