Trump getting banned from twitter was going to happen anyway, as soon as he was out of office. I still think it's a bad idea, though. He was poised to completely undermine and divide the republican party on an hourly basis for the rest of his life. This move actually strengthens the right.
Apple and google stores removing the alt-right's bolt hole is also a well intentioned but poorly thought through move. It doesn't get rid of their bad ideas; it only removes the ability of normal people to monitor them and prepare for or react to them in real time. And you can't silence such a large portion of the populace without calamitous unintended consequences. The inability of tech leaders to foresee the blowback that will come from this is really disappointing. The lack of vision is shocking.
I thought the dichotomy between Pence's speech post chamber invasion and Schumer's was quite telling. One got a round of applause, the other got silence.
I wouldn't be overly broken up if that guy in the concentration camp hoodie and his buddies did something dumb with weapons and got themselves killed.I hope no one with a weapon does anything dumb

But yeah, the law enforcement officer complicity thing is troubling, and to the surprise of no one, seems to be the one aspect not being investigated post-riot.
