You shouldn't use the word "Insurrection". It's inflammatory partisan politicking and doesn't accurately describe what occurred unless there was a specific plot in place to overthrow the government. In fact, there is no evidence of that. The FBI will investigate, but more likely it was people whose passions were aroused and they just let that get out of control. Don't be part of the problem. Be part of the solution. That means being just as understanding of this incident of mob illegal actions as you are of the many, many instances of BLM riots and looting.
