Expert Cautions Against Counter Protests. The FBI has warned police chiefs across the country to be on high alert for extremist activity ahead of the inauguration next week. The Mountain West has long been a hotbed for these groups. The federal law enforcement agency said there is a possibility anti-government groups and militias may target state capitols, federal buildings, businesses and the homes of congressional members.

She warned that would just create opportunities for further harm. — Nate Hegyi, Mountain West News Bureau.
