Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Twitchy.com: “'Mostly peaceful insurrection' at Arizona Capitol shut down Senate business”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Friday night after the Supreme Court released the ruling overturning Roe v. Wade there were protests — some violent — in Washington, DC, New York City, Los Angeles and elsewhere. There was also a protest (that might be referred to as an “insurrection” if the activists were on the Right) at the Arizona Capitol building.

We are currently there being held hostage inside the Senate building due to members of the public trying to breach our security. We smell teargas and the children of one of the members are in the office sobbing with fear. I expect a J24 committee to be created immediately.

Appalling to hear some Democrats defending those outside trying to break the glass and breach security. “This is a public building, and they wouldn’t let them in.” However another Democrat mad as heck for them scaring the children in the building.

Senate President Karen Fann abruptly called a recess to Senate work and evacuated lawmakers and staff to the Senate basement after protesters attending a rally after the Supreme Court’s decision to overturn Roe v. Wade pounded on Senate windows and doors.

“We have a security threat outside,” Fann said, trying to hurry along a handful of public-school supporters who had unfurled a banner expressing their disgust with the Senate’s approval of universal vouchers.
