Description

Authorities began deploying tight security measures in downtown Cleveland, on Friday, three days ahead of the Republican convention that will officially decide the GOP presidential candidate. Police blocked the central roads surrounding the Quicken Loans Arena event venue, with fences and concrete blocks while officers patrolled the street on foot and motorbikes. Secret service officers have determined secure zones around the Quicken Loans Arena and the Progressive Field Indians venues, which will host the four-day convention in which the only remaining candidate of the Republican Party, Donald Trump, is expecting to be proclaimed the official nominee for the presidential elections, taking place on November 9, 2016. Several demonstrations have been called, including some organised by the New Black Panther party, whose leaders have stated that they will be carrying weapons during the protests. Ohio is a state which allows open-carry of guns, however guns will not be allowed in the secure zones protected by the security service or inside the convention arena.
