Trooper who arrested Georgia legislator feared a Capitol Building style riot

Lt. G.D. Langford, the state trooper who arrested Democratic lawmaker Park Cannon for knocking on Governor Kemp’s door while he signed into law Georgia’s new voter suppression law, said in a 13 page incident report ‘memories of the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol were on his mind.’ Langford also claimed that if he didn’t arrest Cannon, more lawmakers would feel “emboldened” to follow her after she refused his requests to stop knocking on Kemp’s private second-floor office in the Georgia Capitol.

“The events of January 6, 2021 at the U.S. Capitol were in the back of my mind. I didn’t want the protestors to attempt to gain entry into a secure part of the Capitol. I believed Cannon’s actions of obstructing law enforcement in front of agitated protestors to constitute a breach of the peace.”
