RNC: Hints of Violence as Law Enforcement Prepares for Tampa

Law enforcement agencies have been gearing up for the Republican National Convention in Tampa to be held August 27th – August 30th.  For many, that’s welcome news, as local and national anarchist groups have amped up the chatter in recent months.

On Tuesday, Tampa police said they confiscated “pipes, bricks and other suspicious items from the rooftop of a downtown building located about a mile from where next week's Republican National Convention will be held.”  The police chief also indicated that they have studied other protests in preparation for this month’s convention.

"...studied other protests...". LOL What they are STUDYING are satellite imagery, surveillance video, and photographs from stationary camera's. And they are going to beat a lot of people. A WHOLE lot of people. And although no one has a right to throw bricks and destroy property, EVERYONE has a CONSTITUTIONAL right to protest. The police will make no distinction while beating, macing, and killing anyone they please. While wearing masks and gear to hide their identity. They can kill you, but we're not allowed to know who they are...

811-Nothing wrong with protesting, but everyone including you know these will not be peaceful protests. Just like that occupcrap, rapes, assaults on people and property....Typical demospeak. "Oh we're not doing anything wrong why are you beating us", while they torch cars and buildings and committ crimes lol.

9:39....if ALL of the protesters were torching buildings, destroying property, raping all the women, etc, there wouldn't be enough cops to control them. Or stop them. Quit lapping up the official line of the authorities like its chocolate milk. Go view video (I know...those lying camera's can't be believed) of the Oakland police or the New York police (beating women and children, unarmed and cowering behind barricades or running for their lives, or in handcuffs). Or Chicago police. Or the Boston police. Just pick a city. Then come back and talk about the "heroic" police officers. It take a REAL man to club a woman in handcuffs. Then mace her, just for laughs (thats on video, too).
