It’s ridiculous to say.
But we could see mass riots in the streets after election results.
That’s the unfortunate fear of law enforcement officials across the country. It’s why authorities are planning for the worst case scenario. The NYPD for example has been training every day and plans to deploy hundreds of extra officers for the Nov. 3 election, says Daily Mail.
In Los Angeles, officers are being told they may need to reschedule their vacations, according to the Los Angeles Daily News. “We’re working with all of our partners, both first responders, emergency partners as well as L.A. County (sheriffs) … to talk about the approaching election cycle,” Moore said, adding that he has spoken to state and federal law enforcement as well to plan for any protests or groups that become violent.
In Texas, according to The Texas Tribune:
“Now, with a contentious election just a month away and with a nation bitterly divided, police are again preparing for protests across the state. Agencies in at least four major cities — Austin, El Paso, San Antonio and Fort Worth — confirmed they are planning for potential unrest around the Nov. 3 election.”
And, according to The Washington Post:
“The Justice Department is planning to station officials in a command center at FBI headquarters to coordinate the federal response to any disturbances or other problems with voting that may arise across the country, officials familiar with the matter said.”
While there are many of us civil and adult enough not to get crazed, many others are – which is why law enforcement is buckling down and preparing.
While we hope not to see any further unrest, it’s likely if people don’t get the results they want. If that unfortunately happens, some of the top stocks to watch will be law enforcement related.
Just as we’ve seen in prior unrest, these are the top stocks to keep an eye on:
· Axon Enterprises (AAXN)
· Digital Ally (DGLY)
· Cemtrex (CETX)
· Vislink Technologies (VISL)
· Smith & Wesson (SWBI)
· Sturm Ruger & Co. (RGR)
