Why are people being violent in the Capitol Hill Riots?

Aadit Gupta, Writer

Dear Editor,

I am writing to you in regards to the recent Capitol Hill riots. Congress confirmed that president-elect Joe Biden’s 2020 election victory, what’s the point of assaulting the Capitol then? Only because some political leaders believe that President Trump should be removed from his position doesn’t mean he is doing a bad job or he will be removed. Since the president has already been decided, and everyone in the country has chosen their best candidate.

Hurting anyone from the Capitol or hurting the police won’t make people change their decision, and it’s not like they can change their vote now. President Trump also wants peace, especially after he tweeted it. There is no point of violence in this topic as the elected president for 2021 won’t change.

Instead, we can just celebrate president Trump’s last day in the office and give president-elect Joe Biden a chance by being happy for him. We should be grateful to President Trump also as he did a great job in his term.
