Discounts for Peaceful Protestors. I am not making this up!

From NYC Visit

The Peaceful Political Activists visitor program is the first of its kind for a national political convention, and visitors can take advantage of special offers by wearing a Peaceful Protester Welcome button.

Hmm, but if those wearing the Peacful Protestor button decide to march into Central Park without a permit, well golly, they’ve conveniently marked themselves for the police, eh?

Anarchists emerge as the convention’s wild card

As the Republican National Convention is about to begin in New York City, the police are bracing for the actions of this loosely aligned and often shadowy group of protesters, and consider them the great unknown factor in whether the demonstrations remain under control or veer toward violence and disorder and yadda blah blah woof woof.
