By violence they mean protesting and people maybe being persuaded.

No, by violence they mean violence.

According to the document, the FBI's information as of March showed that anarchist extremists proposed "engaging in potentially destructive criminal activities against critical infrastructure outside the security perimeter throughout the Tampa Bay region because they expected access to the main RNC venue to be tightly controlled."

..."During past national and international political and economic events, anarchist extremists have blocked streets, intersections, and bridges to disrupt or impede local business operations and public transportation access and, in some instances have initiated violent confrontations with police," the document states.

...The bulletin says that law enforcement agencies believe most protesters at the conventions will obey laws and not commit violent acts, but that anarchists are the most likely exceptions.

The notice warns of certain things state and local law enforcement should be on the watch for. Those include anarchists acquiring materials that could be used to make improvised explosive devices, obtaining firearms training and preparing for violence with groups they oppose -- such as white supremacists.

Anarchists often research potential targets, according to the bulletin.
Law enforcement officials cite the arrest in late April of five Ohio men for allegedly plotting to blow up a bridge over the Cuyahoga River near Cleveland. Authorities said at least three of the men are self-proclaimed anarchists who had considered "a series of evolving plots over several months."

Violence...get it?

Violence...get it?

I bet violence the violence we will see will be police pepper spraying and or tasering protestors and then arresting them by the van full as we saw in the last convention and during Occupy Wall Street.

Demonstrators arrested during the Republican convention in New York this summer sued the city, Mayor Michael Bloomberg and the police department, accusing municipal authorities of punishing legitimate political protest.

The suit, filed today in Manhattan federal court by several civil rights groups, was brought on behalf of nearly 2,000 protesters and bystanders who were arrested and detained in what the Center for Constitutional Rights says were ``filthy and toxic conditions.'' The suit seeks monetary damages and an order barring ``unlawful'' mass arrests in the future.

By the by, that is more people than Putin arrested during the last demonstrations there. But America is land of the free and all and some of the NYC protestors were white and had dreadlocks. Scary.
