Cleveland convention [Republican National Convention 2016]

Predictions?

Will there be gun violence?
Will many protestors be arrested?
Will Trump change his tone?

I think both sides would like to see teargas and Mexican flags in front of the Cleveland Convention. Both sides think it helps their cause. Some are in it just for the 60's nostalgia.

Re: Cleveland convention

I don't think it will go down peacefully. This is Ohio we are talking about, and if any of my (white) Ohioan acquaintances are anything to go by, the democrats have VERY strong sentiments against the republicans. So far the message of the republicans was a belligerant one.

It is mentioned in the article that the police is asking for "suspending" open carry. Why now? Despite all that's been hapenning, Trump still adds fuel to the fire (and this may be his take on the "devide and conquer" strategy).

Need I mention the race issues? The shooting of the 12-y.o. Tamir Rice is still fresh in people's minds, rekindled by the shooting of Castile in MN.

I will be amazed if everything goes smoothly.
