As President Joe Biden took the oath of workplace in Washington D.C. Wednesday, the streets about North Carolina’s Condition Capitol building in Raleigh were generally empty, save for a considerable presence of regulation enforcement blanketing the space.

Fears of armed protests, which the FBI experienced warned about last week, did not arrive to fruition, with only a several protestors standing around the capitol grounds to protest Biden’s election.

“It’s peaceful, and I really do not thoughts the police” explained Thomas Conner of Beaufort, a protestor who feared Biden’s presidency will suggest “losing a way of life”. All round, the number of the protestors could be counted on two palms. A single gentleman wore a pro-Donald Trump flag as a cape. One more held a Accomplice battle flag.
