Dems Build Wall Around Convention Site; Wells Fargo Center, To Be Inside DNC Security Perimeter

Security at the Sports Complex during the Democratic National Convention next month will include “no-scale fencing” to enclose the Wells Fargo Center and Xfinity Live!, the Secret Service special agent in charge said in an interview Thursday.

But exact boundaries of the security perimeter around the sports arena, where the convention will take place July 25-28, are not yet finalized, Special Agent James Henry told NBC10.com.

“We’re not quite there to talk about the perimeter yet,” Henry said. “We’re probably a couple weeks away from finalizing that. But expect some closures.”

For the second time in less than a year, Philadelphia is playing host to an event that brings with it the designation of National Special Security Event (NSSE). Last year's papal visit was hailed a success in the days and weeks after Pope Francis came to the city for a historic weekend. But it caused months of angst leading up to the event. Much of the unease settled around what became the planned shutdown of Center City to vehicle traffic. Highlights From the 2016 Campaign TrailHighlights From the 2016 Campaign Trail

Henry cautioned that the DNC is very different from the papal visit last September.

“This is not the papal visit. This is much smaller in scope and much smaller in scale. So the security footprint is going to be much smaller,” Henry said. “The impacts are really minimal. We’re fortunate the sports complex is more isolated, certainly than the papal visit in Center City.”

2. It isn't to stop Bernie's supporters, it is to protect from the crazies of the GOP

 

The WILL be out in force in Philly and they WILL try to stir up trouble. no need to physically fight them, just isolate them. It does work.

17. Totally referring to trump supporters

Never occurred to me that anyone would think I meant Bernie supporters. I was replyong to a post that mentioned gop crazies. Sorry for any confusion. No, trump has already told his own supporters to rough people up, etc. Want to make sure those hooligans are nowhere near the convention.

4. misleading/false post title--the secret service is erecting a temporary security fence.

 

The "Dems" aren't building anything, and no wall is being built

9. So we don't want security?

I had to pass through two metal detectors just to get into a Super Bowl event January. Imagine going into a building where the president, Vice President, Democratic nominee, governors and half of Congress will be.

11. They have a fantasy of disrupting inside the convention hall.

Good luck with that.

10. Told you so, but it's not 'Dems.' The sports area here in Philly is incredibly easy to fence off.

Protesters will be blocks away behind a fence, if not stuck across the river in Jersey.

Secret service and police will be looking for groups of miscreants on foot and on public transportation.

18. A wall? and NOT just a security fence...

 

I thought Democrats were against building walls?

Hillary said she'd rather build bridges didn't she?

Michelle said that there shouldn't be walls in America that keep people out, right?

I guess this message didn't get to the DNC.

21. "will include “no-scale FENCING”

Nothing about a wall, except in the OPs headline.
