Police make pre-emptive RNC raids

The Minneapolis-St. Paul police have been protecting and serving in preparation for the Republican National Convention and the planned protests.

In a statement Saturday morning, Ramsey County Sheriff Bob Fletcher said the St. Paul raid targeted the RNC Welcoming Committee, a group he described as "a criminal enterprise made up of 35 self-described anarchists...intent on committing criminal acts before and during the Republican National Convention."
Woo-hoo! And the fun begins. Yours truly will be on the bus tomorrow to the protest. Hopefully there will be pictures and video to come here on the Tank.
