DHS Warning: Anarchists May Try to Disrupt RNC and DNC
Security threats are being raised for both the RNC and DNC. Fox News Justice Department Producer Mike Levine reported that the FBI and DHS issued a bulletin today urging police across the country to look out for indications that activists in their areas might be planning to go to the conventions to disrupt them in some way.
While it isn’t believed that the anarchists would be able to bypass high security at the events, they may have the potential to disrupt nearby infrastructure, including businesses and transportation systems.
Authorities are particularly concerned about a group of anarchists from New York City, who may be planning to wreak havoc by blocking roads.
The bulletin also warns of potential violence by the anarchists, including the use of Molotov cocktails and acid-filled eggs.
