Brownshirts a-poppin'!

Federal officials have discussed bringing in U.S. troops to boost security at this summer's Republican National Convention - but the NYPD doesn't think it needs them.
"With 37,000 police officers, the Police Department does not anticipate the need for federal troops," said Paul Browne, the top NYPD spokesman.
The NYPD may get some form of federal assistance "whether they want it or not," said one source involved in planning - although another official said it could take the form of an intense Secret Service and FBI presence, and not uniformed troops.

Our Great Leader apparently isn't as beloved as he likes to think.
