Sacramento mayor asks residents to avoid state Capitol for inauguration week

Sacramento Mayor Darrell Steinberg is asking residents to avoid the state Capitol the week of the presidential inauguration in preparation of protests and demonstrations in the area. Earlier in the week, the FBI issued a warning that armed protests are planned at all 50 state capitol buildings and in Washington, D.C., starting this weekend through Inauguration Day and possibly beyond. Steinberg said in a Facebook post shared Wednesday that a large law-enforcement presence will be in the area surrounding the state Capitol, which would include police, sheriff’s deputies and CHP officers.
