VICE.com has photographed
one of the 2,000 riot suits that the Cleveland Police Department will likely be seen wearing next week during the RNC. VICE wrote that they obtained access to the suits through a source.
Cleveland.com reported in April
that the City of Cleveland would spend upwards of $800,000 on the suits and batons. The suits were to be provided by Kentucky-based Galls, LLC. And the funds were to be reimbursed through the $50 million federal grant intended to cover security costs at the convention.
