Just a handful of yahoos here and there making trouble. Hopefully no loss of life.

but because 1000+ J6 yahoos have been sentenced and are serving jail terms of varying lengths, they'll just make a lot of noise before going home.

I think most people realize that he used them during Jan 6th and did nothing to help any of them all.

Also some small groups as TrueDough suggests.

I cant really see an big attack on the NY DA’s Office, but it sounds like security and law enforcement is ready for that if needed.

I think they’re getting worn out financially, psychologically and physically. They might do local stuff but no giant protests or Capitol style riots.

Unless you call pickup trucks with Trump flags and upside down US flags lawlessness??

I think there WILL be a demonstration of support... but won't be anything more than optics.
