Still thinking about how Sam and Bucky had legal, pre-planned authorization to fight the Flag Smashers in the finale.
There was a no-fly zone in effect, because guess who needs clear airspace.
Bucky doesn’t even need to break his stride as the officers move out of the way for him. (They even address him with his military rank.)
There was a plan of response for the attack. They were expected to be there.
Torres was probably on the app still keeping tabs on the Flag Smashers and got the signal when Karli sent it out. A plan of action likely sprung from that based on whatever intel they could get.
It wasn’t a ‘Surprise, the Avengers are here to save the day!’ event. It was coordinated and calculated with law enforcement that Sam and Bucky would be key players here. We really only see the police there to secure the area around the building and keep civilians away from the fight.
Sam and Bucky are calling all the shots.
