Tampa Police Find Pipes, Bricks and Other “Suspicious” Items on Rooftop Just Days Before RNC Convention (Video)

Tampa police found a stockpile of pipes, bricks and other “suspicious” items on a rooftop just days before the Republican Convention.
The police also found anarchist graffiti on the roof.
MyFOX Tampa reported:

The radical leftist group Anonymous recently made calls for members to converge on Tampa for the RNC Convention.

Via The Jawa Report and Star Tribune reported:

Tampa police said Tuesday that they confiscated pipes, bricks and other “suspicious” items from the rooftop of a downtown building located about a mile from where next week’s Republican National Convention will be held.

Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said she believes the items were put there by protesters for use during RNC demonstrations. She added that some RNC-related graffiti was also found at the building, but wouldn’t elaborate.

“It is disconcerting but it’s not surprising,” she said. “This is normally how things proceed leading up to a large event.”

Tampa will host the RNC at a downtown stadium from Aug. 27-30

    Beware the false flag. Biden’s presence in Tampa during the convention is alarming. Something terrible might be in the offing.

    I think the MSM will try to hide any mention of this, that is, if they don’t somehow try to pin it on The Tea Party, Rush, Sara Palin or Romney himself.

    I find this amazing. It also infuriates me. Being a Tampa resident I take great offense to a group coming into my town just to create chaos.

    I do have a tremendous amount of faith in our police dept though.

    Interestingly enough, this group wants to cause chaos in a town with a stand your ground law and a large amount of people licensed to carry. Unreal

  • FurryGuy

    Me thinks the anarchists are trying to replicate the success of the 1968 convention riots in Chicago, where the police did the actual rioting when they indiscriminately began beating protestors.

    Oh wait, that was the Democratic National Convention, and the police were given Carte Blanche by a Democratic Mayor, Richard Daley.

    Since the libs can’t argue anything based on the facts, this is all they have left in the cupboard. Create mayhem, spit on people, defecate publicly, and WHINE. They’re really good at that.

  • Poly Ester

    No worries. I hear The Almighty has scheduled a Jewish hurricane to descend upon Tampa during the RNC convention. Timing is everything.

  • Mahdi Al-Dajjal

    “Suspicious items” is leftist media-speak for “bags of feces and urine”. Just thought you might be interested in that little factoid.

    hah, DNC has them beat (38)..

    [It is troubling that the Democratic National Convention has decided
    to promote and lend its name and national political platform to the
    organizers of the “Jummah at the DNC”. The leaders of this event –
    Jibril Hough and Imam Siraj Wahhaj as advertised are no moderates.
    They are radicals. These individuals embrace Islamist supremacy and
    have demonstrated support for radical ideologies.]

    Holder Justice Department Recruits Dwarfs, Schizophrenics, and the ‘Intellectually Disabled’

    The PJ Tatler has obtained documents from the Justice Department detailing efforts to recruit attorneys and staff who are dwarfs or who have “psychiatric disabilities” or “severe intellectual disabilities.” On May 31, 2012, Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez issued a directive to affirmatively recruit people with these “targeted disabilities.”

    This DOJ policy does not merely involve prohibitions against discrimination, but rather the documents reveal deliberate recruitment efforts to hire as attorneys and staff for the Department of Justice people suffering from psychiatric disorders and intellectual disabilities. Moreover, applicants can “self-identify” their disability by means of the “Standard Form 256, Self Identification Disability.”

    Those with “targeted disabilities” may be hired through a “non-competitive” appointment. That means they don’t have to endure the regular civil service competition among applicants, but can be plucked from the stack of resumes and hired immediately instead.{………..}

  • I haven’t seen any evidence that the police are prepared to protect the lives and property during the RNC convention to the point that the attendees would feel like the cops give a damn but instead are doing what their union tells them they need to do. All during the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations and protests, the cops didn’t do but a fraction of what they should have done to protect businesses, customers trying to get into places of business, passers by, people who were just going outside to sit in the sun for awhile, and the ordinary citizen from the attacks of the Occupyer’s. The cops didn’t lift a finger to protect the businesses from Occupiers coming into their place of business and causing such disturbences that many of those businesses had to close their doors to protect their business. The owners of those businesses begged the cops to do something and they wouldn’t do a damn thing, just like they were under orders not to do anything that could cause riots or whatever the city was afraid might happen if the cops did their damn job. And look at all the mess that was created because the cops didn’t do what they should have done from the very beginning, not waiting for months and then they finally got tough with the protesters but that was after the city figured out it was loosing millions of dollars in taxes from people spending money they weren’t spending because of the protesters and all the trouble and filth they were causing cost the city. It was only AFTER all of the trouble and filth did the city order the cops to run the protesters out, and look at the mess that was found. Dead bodies, disease, bugs, rats, more disease, and filth that senior sanitation workers had never seen in their careers made them sick.

    My question is, when can we expect the cops to do their duty to protect the convention attendees? How many will have to die, be beaten up, destroyed private property, riots, and no telling what? How far will the city of Tampa allow Anonymous, who has been behind all the destruction in Oakland, and many other cities, along with other radical groups?

    THAT sure explains an awful lot!!!

  • And will the Socialist Communist Democrat Convention be a peace festival with flowers in everyone’s hair? Will it be a San Francisco Peace Convention of love and peace for all mankind, or is it womankind, that doesn’t even sound right. No. I don’t think the Socialist Democrats are going to get off that easy. I think there are leftist who believe that from what I hear that Obama isn’t left far enough. “Not left far enough?” Damn, the man is a damn Communist, how much further left can you get? You can’t get any further left than a card carrying Communist like Obama is. What those people are really saying is they want to see blood in the streets from Obama’s opposition to those “damn Christian’s”, and “conservatives”.

    But that’s just it. That’s not being left. What that really is, those people are Nazi’s!! They want to see what the Nazi’s did prior to WWII when Chrystal Night took place, instead it would be Christian book stores that would be burning, Christian churches burning and the congregation drug out into the streets and beaten to death for opposing Obama. Get those damn conservative radio talk show hosts and hang them up from their balls!! Like that Rush Limbaugh, those on the left want Obama to go get Rush and kill his ass!!

    It’s those people’s hate that they want Obama to let loose onto the country so that they can see some real change!! Yeah, it’s change they want, the kind of change that those who fled Nazi Germany saw that these leftist want!!

    Pipes and bricks on a rooftop? I have to laugh. Having worked in many capacities at building sites, I have often seen left over bricks, pipes and all sorts of material on rooftops. And at a chiropractor’s office….they should be looking at the local AMA for framing a chiropractor. This is another false flag trying to drum up fear into people so martial law or some state of emergency can be called, eliminating the election all together.
    Wilofla is close to the truth – the usurper who sits in office is a national socialist as Hitler was coming into power but worse because the stupid Americans who will vote for him (or Romney for that matter) don’t have a clue who they really are and who is behind them supplying all their decisions.
