    Default DNC Denver '08

    well here we go .... i already have a gas mask and am going to wear my bicycle helmet for some protection and of course rubber gloves and cover my skin. I'll post a picture if anyone is interested .... Peace X****



    Denver police are stocking up on guns that fire a pepper spray-like substance instead of bullets - a less-lethal weapon used to disperse crowds - in advance of the Democratic National Convention.

    The department recently ordered 88 Mark IV launchers and projectiles at a cost "in the low six figures," the company that makes the weapons stated in a news release Monday.

    The request was for delivery in advance of the DNC, according to Louisville- based Security With Advanced Technology Inc.

    The convention, scheduled for Aug. 25 to 28 at the Pepsi Center, is expected to draw thousands of protesters to sites throughout Denver.

    The city received a $50 million federal grant for security. A senior adviser to Mayor John Hickenlooper has said the city plans to spend up to half that amount on equipment, with the rest going to pay officers.

    But the city has refused to disclose how it is spending the money, prompting the American Civil Liberties Union last month to file a civil lawsuit.

    The court filing alleges the city is violating the Colorado Open Records Act.

    City officials say releasing the information is "contrary to the public interest" because it could disclose important tactical information, potentially jeopardizing security.

    A city spokesperson could not be reached for comment Monday. Meanwhile, speculation about what the city is buying has run rampant.

    Some organizers of protest groups believe police are buying extended-range Tasers and weapons that incapacitate people with high-intensity sound.

    The Mark IV weapons the city ordered recently fire plastic balls filled with powder that's "like a combination of cayenne pepper and baby powder," the manufacturer said.

    It can be fired from up to 100 feet away, said Ben Cook, director of Veritas, a subsidiary of Security With Advanced Technology.

    The balls burst open on impact. While the powder will incapacitate a person like pepper spray, it doesn't cause some of the more severe reactions, Cook said.


    and here is another wonderful article .. last night it seemed like a war over my house .... this sucks ..... cr****




    Black Hawk helicopters buzzed downtown Denver and other neighborhoods Monday evening in a training exercise to prepare for a possible terrorist attack.
    The flights had people all over town calling authorities to find out what was going on.
    "It's nothing more than Special Operations Command training with local authorities," said Lt. Nathan Potter, with Special Operations Command, which has authority over special forces from all branches of the military.
    Potter would not say which branch of the military was flying the choppers over Denver.
    The training has nothing to do with preparations for the Democratic National Convention, which will be held in Denver in August, Potter said.
    "It's routine preparation for the global war on terrorism," he said.
    Several Black Hawk helicopters were seen flying low near Coors Field during a home game of the Colorado Rockies.
    Denver police received a number of calls about the helicopters.
    "We've gotten quite a few calls, but it's a training exercise that the DPD is involved in, and there's nothing going on," said a Denver police dispatcher. "The vast majority of people, after we tell them what's going on, they say, 'Oh, OK.' "
    Potter said the exercise will be taking place off and on in the city for the rest of the week.
    The exercises will be conducted in the afternoon to evening hours, but he could not reveal any other details about the training due to its sensitive nature.
    "The media will not be allowed to cover this training or conduct any interviews with those involved in the exercise," said Potter.
    He said that Special Operations Command has been conducting similar exercises in other cities as well.

    Allright this is officially getting retarded.

    not my video



    Fucking blackhawk helicopters landed in a park near my work and had dudes repel from rope to the ground then the ran and hid amongst the trees. Then 10 min later another helicopter comes along a swoops them up.

    This is more terrorizing than any fundamentalist group.

    Because Hillary supporters are going to riot.

    Edit: Plus if I remember correctly Rage Against the Machine are playing a free show outside the DNC. When they did this in Los Angeles there was tear gas and all sorts of craziness.

    yeah i'd be pissed. but i wouldn't set anyone's car on fire. cuz that'd be stupid.

    Change happens by convincing people it's the right thing to do. by swaying the public sentiment. Smashing shopfront windows only convinces people you're a bunch of criminals and ought to be in jail.

    Rage Against The Machine Crashing Presidential Conventions?
    Rage Against The Machine Crashing Presidential Conventions?

    By: Don Kaye

    Rage Against The Machine only has one U.S. date scheduled so far in 2008, at the Lollapalooza festival in Chicago's Grant Park on Saturday, August 2nd. But guitarist Tom Morello told us that the political rockers haven't ruled out giving a few more U.S. performances this year: "There is the possibility that we will be playing at the demonstrations surrounding the Presidential conventions. The Democrats are in Denver, the Republicans are in Minneapolis. But we're still looking into that."

    The Democratic convention is scheduled for August 25th through the 28th in Denver, while the Republicans will descend on Minneapolis from September 1st to the 4th.

    Rage Against The Machine performed outside the Democratic National Convention in Los Angeles in August of 2000, one of the group's final performances before going on a seven-year hiatus.

    The band reunited last year for a series of concerts and festival appearances that continues in 2008.

    Rumors persist that a new Rage album is in the works, but the group has not announced any official plans to record new music.
