A Massive Fence Was Just Put Up Around The Supreme Court


DC is looking a lot different nowadays.

If you were to visit the Supreme Court, you would find yourself looking at a 7ft high fence that surrounds the entire perimeter.

The Supreme Court isn’t the only area that is all fenced up, Capitol Hill and the White House also have put up large fences after security has increased exponentially after the Capitol building was sieged.

Take a look at the fences yourself:

It looks like the days of visiting the Supreme Court and walking up the steps are over.

NBC 6 News covered the story and had this to say:

Since the riot Wednesday, no matter the hour — in the darkness and in the daylight — the nation’s Capitol has been quickly turned into a place looking much like Fort Knox. Many federal buildings now sit behind metal barricades erected in the hours after the riot.

“We came by just to kind of see what was going on to see how it has transformed and I think it’s such a shame, and hopefully at some point, we will get our country back,” said Jenny Allison, who lives nearby in Arlington, Virginia.

Allison told us what’s transpired is painful. The high fences have gone up around not just around the Capitol. There’s no more just walking up the Supreme Court steps to peer into the highest court in the land.

The high fence around the White House now extends several blocks and there are high walls that prevent people from even seeing through. From the street, the Department of Treasury and the top of the White House can be seen in the distance with the flag at half staff to honor officer Brian Sicknick, who died after the riot. Police say he was struck with a fire extinguisher.

There’s also a notable amount of National Guard service members all around D.C. too:

DC looks more like a warzone instead of our nation’s capital right now, they’ll definitely not be any field trips there anytime soon.
