DNC Protestors: Denver "Criminalizing Nonviolent Demonstrators" And "Overmilitarizing" The Community

In the battle over the security funding for the Democratic National Convention, former allies Adam Jung of Tent State and Glenn Spagnuolo of Recreate '68 wax hyperbolically over Denver's purchase of police equipment for the event:
Money isn't such a concern for protest organizers, but they say the purchase of police equipment for the DNC is wasteful.

"I'm worried about the message they're sending, but I'm not worried about it actually being used," said Adam Jung, an organizer with the protest group Tent State University. "It sends a message that they're trying to criminalize nonviolent demonstrators."

Glenn Spagnuolo, an organizer with the Recreate 68 Alliance, another protest group, agreed.

"There's no need to overmilitarize our community and utilize these military weapons on a civilian population," he said.

But police are "planning for anything," said Linkhart, who added that he supports their efforts.

"It does sound like we're preparing for an invasion or something, doesn't it?" he said. "But hey, we get the equipment afterwards, so you never know what we might get to use it for."
Well, with the moonbats expected to gather in large numbers, I believe the word "invasion" is entirely accurate. Tinfoil will be in short supply.
