Tampa police say they've confiscated bricks and pipes from a rooftop in Tampa, and discovered what they say is "anarchist" graffiti.
The anonymous symbol was spray painted, along with the number "99" in red paint.
All of it was found on top of a building at 1000 North Florida Ave., which is at the corner of Florida Avenue and Tyler Street.
"We are appreciative that the business owner called us," Tampa Police Chief Jane Castor said Tuesday afternoon.
"Finding those items for us was not a surprise," she added. "We are just pleased to see the communications process worked the way it did."
Occupy 'Welcoming Committee' Promises Violence at RNC
A video uploaded by an Occupier under the YouTube account VforVendetta12345678 shows anarchists and radicals have put together a "Welcoming Committee" to protest the Republican National Convention (RNC) in Tampa, FL on August 27-30, 2012.
Within the video the group states, "Black bloc and Anon Bloc tactics are being encouraged because some say liberal protests get nothing done" and that they are "In no way welcoming", while showing pictures throughout of anarchists performing various acts of vandalism.
They continue, "These protests often result in property destruction and clashes with police, when the more radical groups branch off. If you hope to "peacefully" protest your rights will be respected by radicals. If you are into social warfare, look for a group of people dressed in black."
The group says the protest will be massive and claims 20,000 plus. While they also encourage protesting the Democratic National Convention (DNC) , they say the RNC is much better due to its "high radicalization."

20,000? Sure thing...
But 1,000 anarchists could still make for some entertaining TV...
Both un educated, mob driven, foul, filthy,and entitled.
Well, that does explain something. I always wondered where angry mobs, especially rent-a-mobs, managed to get their bricks, pipes, rocks, etc., that they were chucking at the police (and everyone in line of sight). If you look around on most city streets, these aren’t items you’re generally going to see lying around in profusion. I have often wondered if there was someone back in the crowd with the brick concession, rock concession, etc., etc.
Looks like I might not have been terribly far off the mark.
At least the anarchist is being honest in his beliefs. :P
Note to republicans attending the convention: bring guns and ammo.
The former lies to you about his intentions and the level of coercive violence he is willing to inflict.
Better check the sewers.
I thought about driving over the causeway to check it out. Im too old for that tomfoolery. Ill just watch it on tv. Grab some popcorn boys. Tampa ain’t playing and its going to be wet and sloppy.
Why didn't they give the owner's home address and phone number as well???
Plus, if I were the owner, I'd hire security for my building during the length of the convention.....then send the bill to the police department.
You think Obama doesn't know he is going to lose in a Landslide?
"UPDATE 1-Isaac churns in the Caribbean, threatens US Republican Convention"
21 For although they knew God, they neither glorified him as God nor gave thanks to him, but their thinking became futile and their foolish hearts were darkened. 22 Although they claimed to be wise, they became fools 23 and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images made to look like mortal man and birds and animals and reptiles.
24 Therefore God gave them over in the sinful desires of their hearts to sexual impurity for the degrading of their bodies with one another. 25 They exchanged the truth of God for a lie, and worshiped and served created things rather than the Creator who is forever praised. Amen.
26 Because of this, God gave them over...
No RAINBOW for YOU, RINOtards.
Hubby and I are staying on the Pinellas side of the bay too with snacks and TV on, except for one event near the Convention center on Tuesday evening in honor of our Military. :)
That should be fun flipping back and forth between the convention and weather..
Yes, especially as we observe the Liberal Media as they pray for a CAT 9!!
