Harrisburg, PA – Harrisburg should be expecting a military style police state takeover tomorrow, if the preparation by the Local and State Police, combined with the Federal Secret Service, for the Presidential Visit to the city is similar to the November Neo-Nazi Rally on the Capitol Steps. This experience may resemble the show of force typically displayed by foreign powers that are less than democratic.


Unfortunately, these are not peaceful times in the world, and the problems that were spawned by the economic decline of the post-2008 era, have manifested into the political realities that we are faced with even here in mainstream America, and the dilemma of our millennial generation to find its place in the world.

On the day of the Neo-Nazi rally, less that 6 months ago in Harrisburg, the police were prepared for a full scale war. A helicopter hovered over our heads all day and there were reportedly rooftop snipers located on buildings in the general vicinity of the rally. The State Police had a full riot platoon of soldiers, accompanied by a fleet of more than a dozen horseback mounted troopers from the Tactical Mounted Unit.


When the rally reached its climax, the protestors erupted in yelling, then throwing rocks and fireworks over the heads of police towards the neo-nazis. A mobilized State Police Caravan of 4 SUV’s was initiated and came blaring down N. 3rd Street in unison to the Capitol Steps.

Some of the hype of this event was lost in the developing news surrounding the Presidential Election on November 8th, just three days after this rally and counter-protest.

Harrisburg is very much a politically active city.

Starting at 4pm, the MaClay Street Bridge will be closed to vehicular traffic between Cameron and 7th Streets for tomorrow’s events.
