FBI Says Plotters were in this group of Trump rioters

Most Michigan polling places are public schools.  Open carry or concealed carry have always been prohibited on or near such facilities

VT: The FBI is being prevented, according to our sources, from arresting law enforcement officials in Michigan who are responsible for planning the takeover of the state government and the murder of the governor and state officials including the Attorney General and Secretary of State.

Among those being sought are 3 county sheriff’s and two dozen officers, mostly command, who are known to have worked with and protected the Boogaloo Boys now being held by both State and Federal officials for terrorism.

The problem with the polls isn’t going to be a lack of police protection, but rather that behind those Nazi salutes and American flags festooned with swastikas are serving police officers, such as those who have joined violent demonstrators or taken part in hiring and deploying thugs who have attacked businesses in Grand Rapids and elsewhere.

Secretary of State Jocelyn Benson on Friday sent guidance to local election officials to explain that openly carrying firearms on Election Day in polling places, clerk’s offices and absent voter counting boards would be banned.

But the edict has no legal basis, said Robert Stevenson, director of the Michigan Association of Chiefs of Police.

“The Secretary of State issued these administrative rules, but in researching the issue, there’s nothing in the law that gives police the authority to enforce these rules,” Stevenson said.

“Their theory is if people don’t follow the rules and don’t leave (the polling place), they’d have a trespassing situation where police would be able to take enforcement action.

“But the feedback I’ve been getting from our police agencies is that they’re uncomfortable trying to enforce something they clearly don’t have the authority to enforce,” Stevenson said. “Our hope is that this will get resolved and there’ll be some clear guidance.
