Despite reports that promised huge amounts of violence in the Cleveland area during the Republican National Convention, the gathering saw only small amounts of protestors, and none of the violence that the press predicted.

Despite the fact that the streets of Cleveland were mostly clam, reports are now claiming that the FBI conducted a ‘no knock, no warrant’ raid on a group of self-described ‘anarchists’ near Quicken Loans Arena.
