Toledo Police brace for possible civil unrest

*Hmmm…*

TOLEDO, OHIO — Toledo police are gearing up for possible “Civil unrest” during and after tomorrow’s elections.

In an internal memo obtained exclusively by NBC 24 News, officers are ordered to “Have their riot equipment with them Tuesday and Wednesday”. Police chief Mike Navarre confirms, officers will have gear similar to the equipment they used during the 2005 race riots. “They have been asked to have their helmets and their gas masks available tomorrow and Wednesday.”, Navarre says, “That’s the equipment they would not normally carry with them on a normal day”.

Navarre also says, officers will not be stationed at individual polling stations. But the memo says otherwise. It reads, “On Tuesday, units shall be directed to patrol the polling locations”.

    A wise idea. If and when McCain wins the elections there’s a more than reasonable chance of riots and such among certain subsets of the Obama supporters.
