To many officers and their supporters on the right, the Capitol Police’s performance showed how passive police have become in the face of a reform movement that aims to curtail their use of force.

To civil rights advocates and many Democrats, the police response reflected law enforcement’s long history of giving white people passes for behavior that would result in beatings or death if done by people of color.
