The Rocky Mountain News is reporting (by way of the Drudge Report) that upwards of 50,000 protesters are looking to "camp out" in the parks around the convention center. The mayor has said no.
First thing I think of with that many people: sanitation. Ugh. Denver would be a sewer.
Second thing: security.
Not only did the mayor say "no" to camping but added that if crowds were not out of the parks by the 11:00 p.m. curfew, the city may turn on the sprinklers.
With all the radical protesters threatening to make this a remake of the summer of 1968 when riots broke out during the Democrat Convention in Chicago, it makes me wonder if Denver is questioning their decision as the site of the DNC Convention....
