This is how Mississippi officials responded to the mob raid at the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6, 2021.
Gov. Tate Reeves
Political violence is always wrong. Law and order must win over mob rule. The country we love desperately needs prayer and God’s protection.

To everyone who has asked, I am safe.
I thank the brave men and women of the U.S. Capitol Police and federal law enforcement for their work to bring this lawlessness and violence in the Capitol building to an end.

Thank you for the messages of concern. My staff & I are safe. Whatever frustrations any American may have, violence & destruction in the US Capitol, the seat of our democratic government, is unacceptable. I'm grateful for @CapitolPolice & those working to stabilize the situation.
