Republican National Convention report released
The report on the Republican National Convention police activities was released today. The report is being presented to the St. Paul City Council right now.
Here is one of the main conclusions of the report:
Therefore, while the convention was a success on many fronts and promoted Saint Paul to a national and international audience, there were lingering questions and concerns locally. After the convention, some in the protest community stated that they felt "betrayed" by the heavy police presence and questioned whether the "threat" presented by the anarchists warranted such a strong police response; members of the business community wondered what happened to the expected influx of business; and members of the media questioned their treatment and handling.
