While thousands of “protesters” in and around New York City are no doubt preparing for chaos leading up to and following November’s presidential election, New the York City Police Department is gearing up as well.
To attempt to keep a lid on the expected unrest, the department will be requiring most cops to report for duty in uniform and “be prepared for deployment” starting Oct. 25, states an internal police memo obtained by the New York Post.
Adding to the tension are ongoing Senate hearings for President Donald Trump’s latest Supreme Court Nominee, Amy Coney Barrett, whose conservative Catholic credentials have leftists in near hysteria.
“This November 3rd will be the one of the most highly contested presidential elections in the modern era. There is also a strong likelihood that the winner of the presidential election may not be decided for several weeks,” the memo reads.
“Accordingly, we should anticipate and prepare for protests growing in size, frequency, and intensity leading up to the election and likely into the year 2021,” it goes on.
Demonstrators have taken to the streets of the city to protest against police brutality since the death of George Floyd in Minneapolis in May, calling for the abolition of police departments.
The Manhattan “protests” also took the form of store looting and the torching of police cars.
