CNN is reporting that law enforcement officials, including the FBI and Department of Homeland Security, are concerned about possible violence from anarchist extremists at the Republican and Democrat national conventions that kicks off with the GOP event in Tampa next week.

The Tampa Bay Police Department has been reportedly preparing for weeks, and according to Government Security News, "is deploying behavioral recognition software from BRS Labs on dozens of the video cameras that will provide round-the-clock surveillance at many of the venues where the GOP national convention will take place August 27-30."
