South Dakota lawmakers asking for Capitol violence to end
(UPDATE 1/6/21 @ 3:37 P.M.): South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds has released a statement regarding today’s incident at the U.S. Capitol.
“As a nation, we should stand together in opposition to the violent acts and lawlessness that occurred at the U.S. Capitol today. Violence and destruction are never the answer. We are better than this, and it’s past time for cooler heads to prevail. I continue to pray for our great country.”
PIERRE, S.D. — House Representative Dusty Johnson and Governor Kristi Noem took to Twitter this afternoon asking for the violence at the U.S. Capitol to come to an end.
Too many have sown the seeds of anger and division. This is its tragic harvest. This needs to stop.

We are all entitled to peacefully protest. Violence is not a part of that. What’s happening in the Capitol right now must stop.
