Washington Times: U.S. military told to avoid 37 American cities for fear anti-police protests may turn violent

The Army last week warned all military personnel in the United States to avoid 37 American cities this week over concerns that anti-police protests, dubbed “Days of Rage,” are planned and could turn violent.

The July 8 notice from the U.S. Army North said there is a potential for violence or criminal activities in the aftermath of the shootings of five Dallas police officers.

The Army notice appears based on an online rumor, since denied, that the anarchist hacker group Anonymous had called for nationwide protests Friday in the U.S. cities.

The protesters are very lucky that the Police are constrained, if unleashed it won't be pretty, not sure how much longer they can keep a lid on this, it will not end well I suspect.

TWN Given that the meme has been that violence is expected since Barack Obama was confirmed elected, I would also expect that any thought that the police are to be restrained be dispensed with.
