NavyJack – Cleveland, a City in the Crosshairs

The city of Cleveland, Ohio obtained its name on July 22, 1796 when surveyors of the Connecticut Land Company named the area now known as “Cleveland” after their leader, General Moses Cleaveland. Moses Cleaveland oversaw the plan for what would later become the modern downtown area, centered on a Public Square, before returning home to Connecticut, never again to visit Ohio. Moses Cleaveland was a member of the Connecticut convention that ratified the United States Constitution. He was elected to the Connecticut General Assembly several times and in 1796 was commissioned General of the Militia.

In three weeks, the city founded by the General of the Connecticut Militia will be the host of the 2016 Republican National Convention (RNC). As I previously reported in the article titled “Protests and Preparations”, thousands of Black Lives Matter, Revolutionary Communist Party, Workers World Party and La Raza protestors intend to Shut Down the Quicken Loans Arena and interdict (and prevent if they can) the nomination of Mr. Donald Trump as the Republican Party Presidential Nominee.  Convention activities are scheduled not only at the main Quicken Loans Arena, but also in over 40 separate meeting facilities, restaurants and private clubs in the downtown Cleveland area.

The RNC has been designated as a National Special Security Event (NSSE). Many previous NSSEs have turned the host city into a police state for the duration of the event. Police officers in riot gear will be highly visible in the vicinity of the convention arena, snipers will be stationed on rooftops, helicopters will be assigned to patrol the area, and barriers will line the security perimeter. Police will conduct bag searches on public transportation leading to the downtown area and stop/search anyone approaching the Quicken Loans Arena.

The City of Cleveland had originally planned to field 4,000 uniformed officers with the assistance of Cincinnati, Denver, Greensboro and many other cities.  This force has now dwindled to less than 1,000 with most of the major supporting cities pulling out. In their original plan, the city anticipated marches and protests of up to 20,000 people. As of today, the city is anticipating greater than 100,000 anti-Trump protesters with upwards of 10,000 being bused in from Chicago.

Currently, there have been 23 protest groups approved with 57 total events. There are many other groups who have submitted applications who have not yet been approved or denied. City officials have been posting approvals/denials on a weekly basis
