Story: Police outnumber protesters, armed demonstration wraps within hours

A police helicopter patrolled the sky over downtown Lansing on Sunday morning, its low hum foreshadowing what federal security agencies warned could turn into a dangerous scene.

Boards covered windows of businesses and government buildings below. Police were out in droves, joined by a procession of National Guard humvees. A 6-foot fence surrounded the Michigan Capitol, a message declaring the building would not be overtaken like the U.S. Capitol days before.

Lansing was prepared for chaos that did not materialize.
