As noted by R_D: 2021 – Supporters of U.S. President Donald Trump attack the United States Capitol to disrupt certification of the 2020 presidential election, resulting in five deaths and evacuation of the U.S. Congress.

Imagine the fear on one side of the door/glass with all those people coming after you to hurt/kill/hang/rape you - which is what the advancing crowd were yelling.
This seems like a problem, also. I would be hard pressed to believe that these were just "normal" suicides.
