Police in Toledo, Ohio Given Riot Gear

mike-navarre-toledo-police-chief.jpgToledo police are gearing up for possible “Civil unrest” during and after tomorrow’s elections. In an internal memo obtained exclusively by NBC 24
News, officers are ordered to “Have their riot equipment with them
Tuesday and Wednesday”.

Police chief Mike Navarre confirms, officers
will have gear similar to the equipment they used during the 2005 race
riots. “They have been asked to have their helmets and their gas masks
available tomorrow and Wednesday.”, Navarre says, “That’s the equipment
they would not normally carry with them on a normal day”.

Navarre
also says, officers will not be stationed at individual polling
stations. But the memo says otherwise. It reads, “On Tuesday, units
shall be directed to patrol the polling locations
“.
