DAY OF RAGE, Warning for US Residents (TODAY) July 15, 2016

in #life5 years ago (edited)

I just received the following from my 82 year old, African American accountant:

It has been reported that the New Black Panthers are joining with Black Lives Matter for a "Day of Rage" on July 15th. The attached message is FYI.

In the recent ARNORTH Threat Advisory (0141-16 ATA (8 Jul 16) Concerning Potential for Violence or Criminal Activity in the Wake of the Shooting Deaths of Six Dallas, TX Police Officers, multiple protests are scheduled to be conducted across the United States. Being anywhere near these protests greatly increases the chance that you could become a victim of violence.
When the mob mentality takes over, normally decent people can commit heinous acts.

Please pass on to your personnel who may be potentially traveling to the areas. Use this as a list of places NOT to be on Friday the 15th. While the media does specify nonviolence and denounces the actions taken against police officers that were not involved in these deaths, with the tagline "Day of Rage" it is safe to expect emotions to be running very high on both sides of the line. No matter how great your empathy might be for those who have unjustly lost their lives, these protests are not safe places to be.

Sort:  

As it says, non-violent protests. Rage means anger, not necessarily violence. Hope it doesn't get out of control.

Yes. It sure sounds like double-talk to me. Spread the word and keep your family and friends safe.
