Heavy Police Presence at Texas Capitol Saturday, But Situation Stays Calm



TX – The Texas Capitol remained calm Saturday with a massive police presence, but none of the violent protests that were feared.

The Capitol remains closed until Wednesday, the day Joe Biden will be inaugurated as president.

Dozens of state troopers guarded entrances at the Capitol. A helicopter circled overhead. At least two drones also kept watch from the air.

The FBI warned that violent groups may stage protests at all 50 state capitols, including Texas.

“Everyone is on edge,” said Kierra Batts, who was visiting Austin with her family from Atlanta. “It’s just craziness.”

Batts posed with other family members for photos outside the Capitol.
