False Claims That Insurrection Resulted In More Arrests Than BLM Riots.

I have been reading some false information about the difference in the number of arrests between the capitol insurrection and the Black Lives Matter protests. Some seem to believe that there were more arrests during the capitol insurrection than there were from the BLM protests. I did my own research and found that there were 532 arrests in relation to the capitol insurrection, and there were more than 14,000 arrests in relation to the BLM protests. So, clearly, there were significantly more arrests from the BLM protests. The insurrection resulted in 5 deaths, meanwhile the BLM protests resulted in more than 25 deaths. That is a 5x difference in deaths, and 26.3x difference in arrests.
