Much of the country, and world, is shocked over the storming of the US Capitol in Washington, DC on January 6. In today’s episode, journalists and activists describe their experience covering and witnessing the insurrection. We hear experts analyze the contrast between the lack of police preparedness and response to Trump loyalists versus Black Lives Matter protesters last year. And we ask all of them to consider what Wednesday's events mean for the future of US democracy.

In this episode:

Journalists reporting from the US Capitol, Patty Culhane and John Hendren for Al Jazeera, and Tia Mitchell with the Atlanta Journal Constitution; Washington, DC-based activist Cirilo Manego; Attorney General for the District of Columbia, Karl Racine; Andre Perry, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution; anthropologist Steve Gardiner; former CIA officer Glenn Carle
