(Breitbart) The city of Cleveland, Ohio has bought insurance in anticipation of large scale rioting at this summer’s Republican National Convention, Shane Ferro reports at the Huffington Post. He also begins to lay out a media narrative that Republicans may to blame for some potential violence.
The RNC will take place in July. But as HuffPo reports, Cleveland is already making plans not just for the violence and chaos but for the rounds of lawsuits by leftist attorneys that often follow.
A spokesperson for the city of Cleveland emailed HuffPost a statement that said the city hired an insurance broker "to assist the City in identifying and procuring law enforcement professional liability and related insurance." The statement also said it will be paid for through a federal grant. According to Cleveland.com, the city will get a "$50 million federal security grant."
