Capitol Police Out In Force To Show Security

WASHINGTON (AP) — Capitol police cars flashed their lights and officers with automatic weapons patrolled in force Monday as a visual warning to anyone seeking to retaliate for Osama bin Laden’s death.

Senate Sgt. At Arms Terrance Gainer said Congress’ police force is on the lookout for any threat on the Capitol campus as lawmakers returned from a two-week Easter recess.

Ten police vehicles, lights flashing and trunks opened, gathered at the base of Capitol Hill early Monday where Constitution and Pennsylvania Avenues meet. Officers with automatic rifles were examining every vehicle that approached.
