The Los Angeles Police Department (LAPD) is anticipating “unrest” and “riots” around Election Day as morale continues to plummet among rank-and-file cops, according to internal department sources. They said a few hundred cops are expected to retire in January, which would deal a blow to a department already struggling to maintain the peace and to protect its own officers from attacks.
LAPD leaders recently sent an internal email designating the period of November 2 to 9 as a “special event,” with modified hours and time off for department personnel, according to a copy obtained by Breitbart News. Police leaders also said they will declare an “unusual occurrence” during that period, but they didn’t elaborate what that would entail.
“They are expecting unrest [and] riots,” an LAPD source told Breitbart News. The source said that officers will do “what they have to do as they are directed” during the period.
