The first significant incident that gave me an indication that Trump Supporters were plotting the insurrection of the United States Capitol occurred in Salem Oregon. At the Oregon State Capitol on December 21, 2020.
Trump supporters, Anti Mask Protesters, and members of a far-right group called Patriot Prayer kicked in the glass doors of the building, which allowed them to break inside and ransack the interior.
Oregon State Police and the Salem Police Department showed up in riot gear to combat the looters who had broken into the building. A short standoff occurred inside between the two opposing groups. Which led to several rounds of CS gas and pepper balls being fired, forcing the crowd out of the Capitol.
