Pics from Friday on page 66 of this thread

From Thursday:

After lunch I took a walk over to see what Northam had planned for us on Monday.   I will try to update this thread daily with any additional information and pictures as things are put in place so everyone is informed.

There is currently probably a mile of chain link fencing erected.

The entire perimeter of the square is enclosed in chain link fencing.  No guard shacks or other evidence of the specific entry points to be allowed is yet apparent.

The Capitol building is entirely enclosed in fencing.  The steps will not be accessible nor will the walkway going around the building.

Washington's statue is entirely enclosed in fencing.

Much of the green space is also enclosed in fencing.

My estimate is that approximately 30-50% of the total area of Capitol square will be off-limits on the 20th.

I thought "walls" were considered insufficient by Dems?

I'm OK with the keep off the lawn part of it.  The other parts not so much.

2 thoughts.  VAGOV is obviously nervous about it and secondly, that's all temporary fencing that looks like it will comedown pretty easily

So now liberals like walls? Shit looks weak.

How are the sections joined?   I’ve seen them joined with chicken wire before so simple to cut with wire cutters.

Based on the layout of the fencing, we can probably guess where the tv cameras will be. Need some large, legible banners to hang on the fencing (facing inwards towards the legislature / TV cameras)

I guess everyone needs to add wire cutters to their kits.

Pussy asses didn’t even cough up the cash for barbed wire toppers.

We should bring our own concertina wire and make our own area.

This is regular lightweight construction fencing.  The sections are only joined at the base.  If it were to become necessary to exit quickly the fence would not be too much of an impediment.

It's times like these that I really wish we had laws like New Texas in H Beam Piper's Lone Star Planet.

If a politician is crooked, then killing/maiming him isn't a crime unless it was excessive.

I'm somewhat amazed by how far they've escalated this.

Oh, to be a fly on the wall during a few of their conversations.

Be safe everybody.  I'm CERTAIN there will be heavy security, including snipers.

They wall up freedom loving Americans but extend bridges to shit hole parts of the world. Those pictures look wrong. It's like something out of a dystopian future video game. Time to EDC bolt/wire cutters?

Maybe those wire cutter bayonets on AKs will finally have their time to shine!

Those are temporary fencing panels used on construction sites. I could wreck 30 feet of that myself in 20 seconds with bare hands.

yup ... we own miles of that shit where i work for temporary fencing.  Unless it is chained together with some kind of lock you just walk up and push it out of your way.
