Security Tightens At Mass. State Capitol Ahead Of Expected Protests

BOSTON (WBZ NewsRadio) — While many people were enjoying a quiet Sunday morning at home, Boston police were busy setting up additional barricades around the Massachusetts State House.

Park Street was completely blocked by midday Sunday, as was most of Beacon Street. The closest the public could get to the building was the bottom of the staircase on the Boston Common, directly across the street.

Meanwhile, officers continued to patrol the area on Sunday, keeping a close eye out for pro-Trump demonstrators who are expected to rally at State Houses nationwide this week.

WBZ NewsRadio's Matt Shearer spoke to one Boston police officer who said he's not aware of any specific planned protests in Massachusetts, or if anyone will show up at all.

But based on what happened in Washington D.C. on January 6th, better safe than sorry.
