Cleveland Prepping For Riots At Republican Convention [1]

The city of Cleveland is preparing for rioting and other violence at this summer’s Republican National Convention by spending millions on riot gear and mobilizing a force of up to 5,000 police officers to head off potential trouble.

The convention is scheduled for July 18-21 at the city’s Quicken Loans Arena.

Documents obtained by The Cleveland Plain Dealer show that the city plans to spend part of a $50 million security grant from Congress on a wide variety of gear.

Preparations for trouble at the convention include:

The city wants a temporary police force of 5,000, up from its current force of 1,200. The convention is expected to attract 50,000 visitors.

City officials have not commented on the gear, according to the Plain Dealer.

The last convention to have major violence was the Democratic gathering at Chicago in 1968.
