Tampa police prepare for anarchist attacks at Republican National Convention

TAMPA — Up to 15,000 protesters are expected to descend on Tampa next summer for the Republican National Convention. Many will wave signs and march peacefully.

Then there are the anarchists.

Authorities are preparing for hundreds of well-organized law breakers whose sole intent will be to shut down the convention.

If it’s anything like the last Republican convention in St. Paul, Minn., they’ll come with gas masks, slingshots and bolt cutters. They’ll throw rocks, block intersections and break windows. They’ll use water guns to spray urine at police.

Discard stereotypes of disorganized punks running amok. In St. Paul, authorities found an anarchist command center downtown with state-of-the-art communications equipment.
