#theppl #Dnc2012 gearing up
We ventured to uptown Charlotte on Sunday afternoon and the police forces looked as if they outnumbered the protest parade - at least by 3 p.m. they did. We saw officers from Atlanta, Chatham County (N.C. - home of Pittsboro and Siler City) and Greenville, S.C. There was a phalanx of bicycle officers all in black, with helmets. I mistook them, at first, for a crew of anarchists.
