Is Tampa police not trained the same way as the rest of the police in the US? if they are trained the same, then they should KNOW what to do!
You can train them but if they have no real life experience with the situations they are likely to encounter next week there could be major issues. Knowing and doing are two very different things!

50K is the expected total number of conventions attendees. 15K is the number of people they expect at that single event at The Trop.

My MIL is coming to visit on the 28th. This tropical storm/hurricane could make things interesting.

I'm sure it will miss Florida though. These storms never go right down the middle of the projected path when they are this far out.

You got the destruction of the middle class correct. The party would be the Democratic Party, the classes would have to include the upper and lower, and the city is Charlotte, North Carolina.
