Cleveland is spending $20 million in federal money on riot and security gear for the Republican convention - Vox
Cleveland is spending $20 million in federal money on riot and security gear for the GOP convention


“As Cleveland prepares to host the Republican National Convention this summer, it's bidding on millions of dollars of security equipment and tactical gear for its police.

Cleveland and Philadelphia, which will host the convention, each received $50 million in federal money to cover the security costs associated with the conventions. Cleveland projects to spend $20 million of that on security equipment and supplies and $30 million on "personnel-related expenditures." Philadelphia has not yet announced how it will use the money. ………..

In March, Cleveland opened its bids for various security supplies. And the sheer quantity of equipment is staggering.

Based on public documents, Cleveland is asking for a wide range of things from hay for police horses to riot gear, both of which aren’t out of the norm for a city hosting a political convention…………

If Trump does not get his way there will be violence both on the streets and on the convention floor..........He is an evil man..... and he wins no matter what he has to do.........ever if folks get hurt and die............

And will be sure to blame it one some one else..........

Maybe a disgruntled political party
