Tampa Police to Hand Out ACLU-Written Protester Guides at GOP Convention

Because the cops will have nothing better to do:

Tampa Police will hand out a guide with tips for protesters during the Republican National Convention.

The Tampa Bay Times reports the guide has maps of the official parade route, the designated protest areas, and places to use the restroom, cool off, get water and seek first aid.

The guide lists banned items, gives advice on avoiding heat-related illnesses, and provides phone numbers for the RNC call center, the Hillsborough County jail and the America Civil Liberty Union’s hotline.

The guide was written with input from the ACLU.

Tampa officials say the guide is part of an effort to reach out to groups ranging from downtown businesses to out-of-town protesters.

Places for protesters to use the restroom? Since when is that a problem?

So, will the police be handing out tips and DNC phone numbers to protesters at the Dem convention in Charlotte? I know… had to ask though.
