TAMPA, Fla. -

Law enforcement agencies are planning to boost their patrols of Tampa's waterways during the Republican National Convention.

The RNC will be held later this month on the city's waterfront. Federal and local law enforcement agencies say they'll saturate the waterway with armed boat patrols.

The Hillsborough County Sheriff's Office says automatic machine guns and infrared technology that can pick up body heat are among the new tools being mounted onto boats for the patrols.

[Anyone a resident of Hillsborough County? I am trying to find out how to file a formal criminal complaint against Romney and all GOP officials who either voted for the NDAA or support it. After all, "levying war" against citizens of the united states (lower case intentional) or "giving AID and COMFORT" is the Constitutional definition of "treason"; and, read what the law says about the responsibilities of sheriffs.

§ 6. Powers and Duties of Sheriff Generally Considered.— … The sheriff may and is bound ex officio to pursue and take all traitors, murderers, felons, and other misdoers and commit them to gaol (jail) for safe custody.

And this surprises you how?

Is it that we have lots of young people or we never watch television?

RNCs are routinely marred by violence. The leftists invariably stir up trouble on the streets outside and get maced and tasered with such regularity you'd swear there's a script everybody's reading from.

And RNC almost by definition means to be smack in the footprint of every security agency on in this land. You are talking about the people that basically OWN the military industrial complex here. You think they are gonna let anything happen?

One thing I like about your idea is it doesn't have to do with leading our people into the same prepared trap in some silly "protest". And as anti-statist as we are, don't you see a percentage of legitimate service in this? One of the greatest concerns is the "lone gunman" thing. Isn't it possible there's another Jared Loughner or other crazy idiot like this Colorado guy that sees this as an opportunity? Dr. Paul and our delegates are gonna be there and we want the very best security for them too.

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

The RNC is coming! the RNC is coming!

One if by land, two if by sea.
