Undercover Cops (Infiltrating) Incite Violence at Republican and Democrat Conventions?
I don’t really know why anyone would want to go to the Republican National Convention (or the Democratic National Convention, for that matter). I know it’s supposed to be an enjoyable time where we get to be “energized” as we officially nominate our candidate, but there is quite a dark side to these conventions that the media rarely mention.
These conventions show participants the grim face of a police state. Armed cops everywhere decked out in riot gear, complete with helmets, face shields and full body armor. In fact, nearly 150 sets of riot gear and equipment have been ordered by Homeland Security to give to the Federal Protective Service ahead of the RNC, DNC and inauguration. At the RNC this year, they’re going to have designated “free-speech zones” where protestors and demonstrators may stay, away from the convention and its participants. I guess that means that everywhere else is going to be a “non-free-speech zone,” so if you’re planning on going, be careful not to say anything.
The Federal Protective Service will be doing all the security for the conventions. They’re anticipating violent demonstrators and rioters. I’m sure there will be plenty of protestors, and there will be times when the protestors will clash with the police. What I wonder is how many of those protest groups are going to have undercover cops posing as protestors and carrying out violent acts in order to justify all the arrests and further violence that will for sure ensue. These types of undercover police are called agents provocateurs, French for “inciting agents.”
In the past, undercover cops have infiltrated various groups in order to find out what the group was planning and ultimately to discredit the group. When the time came to participate in one of their events, like a protest, they might incite others in the group to violence by acting violent themselves, prompting police to arrest many of the members.
