Raleigh Joins List Of Cities Preparing For Protests, Fencing Goes Up

Local law enforcement agencies said Tuesday that they’re prepared for any protests in downtown Raleigh in the next week or so as President Donald Trump leaves office.

After last week’s riot at the U.S. Capitol stoked by Trump’s repeated claims to supporters of a “stolen” election, the FBI warned law enforcement nationwide on Monday of the potential for armed protests at all 50 state capitols before and after President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration on Jan. 20.

Permits for gatherings downtown on Saturday and on Jan. 23 have been requested from state officials, but it wasn’t clear Tuesday who filed the requests or whether they were related to any election-related protest.

“We are prepared, and we are ready,” Raleigh Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin said.

Baldwin said Raleigh leaders learned many lessons about responding to protests last summer, when rioters took over city streets, damaging and looting businesses and setting fires as they battled with police in the wake of George Floyd’s death in police custody in Minnesota.

Two points. First, they’re putting up lots of fencing, despite telling us that fencing at the border doesn’t work (personally, I’ve said many times that there are better options than a border fence, but, I’m not going to get into that now). Second, I can guarantee that any conservative protests won’t become what the BLM/Antifa ones were, with the damage and looting and arson. If they do, I’ll not post about climate change for a month.

“Even though we are an open carry state, protesting with weapons is not legal, and we will be ready to deal with that situation,” Baldwin said.

Leave the guns at home, folks. This is not a 2nd Amendment protest. People carrying around their rifles during the Re-Open NC protests muddle the message badly.

They put up fencing around in D.C., and places like Arizona. Yet, the same Democrats told us that fences did not work. Huh.
