Toledo Police prepare for possible "civil unrest" tomorrow and Wednesday.

As in riots from the past it will probably be disgruntled white republicans who are doing most of the damage. Look for trouble in downtown Sylvania, and most likely Ottawa Hills. They will be torching thier own businesses and turning over thier BMW's in the streets. Let's hope there are enough police standing by in those two cities to handle the problems.
Here's to the crazy ones, the rebels, the troublemakers, the ones who see things differently -- they're not fond of rules... You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can't do is ignore them.

BREAKING NEWS: Be on the lookout for sex and drug crazed anti-American liberals as they come home from their hippie loving abortion parties. They will stop at nothing. If Barack Hussein Osama wins, the Liberal Socialists have been secretly planning to go door-to-door, they will take your children, sell them on the black market, and spread the earnings to all those low-life, can't-help-themselves, worthless nobodies we call the 'Middle Class' (EWWWWW!!).
Be aware. Look out for them Barack Hussein Osama, terrorist loving liberal followers.
PS: God will condem your soul and apocalypse will be upon us if you vote Barack Osama.

Gangs Could Spoil Obama's Party
Sky News ^ | November 3, 2008 | Jon Gripton
"I hope to God I'm wrong, but there are 7,000 known gang members in Chicago and they aren't going to miss an opportunity like this," says Paul Huebl, a former police officer in the city and now a respected author and crime blogger.
"Police officers will be gravely outnumbered and outgunned and placed in danger.
"There is no way to protect businesses. Parents and kids are going to think they're going to a party and they're going to end up getting hurt."
More than a million people are said to be planning to celebrate the expected election of the first black President of the United States.
Just 65,000 will be allowed inside a security cordon to see Obama on stage inside the city's scenic Grant Park, which borders the shores of Lake Michigan.
But hundreds of thousands more are expected in the vicinity, and there are fears that whether Obama wins or loses, looting and gun violence will flare.
The Chicago Police Department has cancelled all days off for officers on Election Day.
"Everyone will be working 12-hour shifts," said police spokeswoman Monique Bond.
However, Obama's top strategist, David Axelrod, says: "We expect a good, supportive crowd, and we expect it to be a happy occasion. Whatever the result, we don't expect trouble."
That might be wishful thinking, given Chicago's propensity for violence.
Last summer, Grant Park hosted the 'Taste of Chicago' food festival. Four were shot, one fatally.
In 1992, hundreds of police officers were hurt when riots flared during sporting celebrations for the Chicago Bulls.
A year later, when the Bulls triumphed again, there were more riots - this time four people were killed.
There was another riot in Grant Park when pop band Sly and the Family Stone cancelled a concert.

'I used to have compassion, but they taxed it and legislated it out of existence.'
Dem. James Carville, aka "The Cryptkeeper," started this weeks ago. I saw him on Anderson Cooper's 360....he predicted riots if Obama loses after the polls have been predicting Obama takes all.
I won't be surprised if there is some sort of violence either way. Like someone posted here weeks ago, if a team wins, its fans riot, if they lose its fans riot. We are dealing with an uber-hero, celebrity candidate the likes of which we haven't seen in our lifetimes. The people who think he is going to save them are going to want to celebrate...too bad destruction is tied to celebration.
They should be rioting--pitchforks and flames in hand--if he wins and can't keep the promises he makes to pull them out of poverty. instead, somehow, the business owner who can't afford to keep them employed will foot the blame.
I'm sharpening my pitchfork..
unfortunately, it happened during my Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas game.
a non-story fanned by the media...and just like lemmings....
Now, now, let's not insult the media, after all they helped THE ONE (copyright Oprah Winfrey) get elected. And he ain't sworn in yet, so it ain't over 'til it's over. LOL

""Toledo, Ohio Police Issued Riot Gear."
How is it embarrassing? I find it to be more embarrassing if we were caught with our pants down and not prepared for such an event.
How is it embarrassing? It's simply a preventative action to keep the general public safe, nothing more. Hopefully, there won't be any need for riot gear in the coming days.
