Boston Police announce tight security measures to ensure none of the white supremacists seeking publicity by marching through Boston tomorrow get to act like armed toddlers.
The Department has a comprehensive operational plan in place. While details of this plan are not for public release, those in attendance at the event can expect a large police presence of both uniformed and undercover officers. The Department will be deploying fixed video cameras and mobile video support teams to assist with keeping the event safe for all who attend.
Police issued a long list of items that will be seized on sight or which will result in their owners being turned away from the alleged parade route down Boylston Street and Tremont Street, including both items that are obviously weapons, such as guns, knives and sharpened sticks, tents, wagons, coolers, dogs, bicycles and "any athletic equipment or other item which could be used as a weapon."
Also banned: Parking along the parade route.
