Supporters of President Donald Trump enter the Senate Chamber inside the Capitol, Wednesday, Jan. 6, with U.S. Capitol Police officers nearby.

After pro-Trump extremists stormed the U.S. Capitol Wednesday, many are examining how law enforcement treated them compared to the protestors this summer - including here in Cincinnati - who took to the streets after the police killing of George Floyd. 

WVXU's Maryanne Zeleznik talked with Professor of Law at the University of Dayton Thaddeus Hoffmeister about what happened.
