L.A. Pride is planning to prepare for a terrorist attack

Although no credible terrorist threat has been called in against today’s Pride celebration in Los Angeles, law enforcement sources have told the media that the the L.A. County Sheriff’s Department has stepped up security measures to thwart any possible mass attack.

TMZ reports, “Law enforcement will be using an array of vehicles as barriers, for the first time, to shore up vulnerable areas along the route and surrounding area. Of course, both uniformed and undercover cops will be on the scene … and video surveillance will be heavily employed.”

These plans come on the heels of a panic today at Washington D.C. Pride as loud noises mistaken for gunshots rang out, sending attendees into a panic. Seven people were taken to hospitals for injuries caused by the panicked fleeing, and a man with a gun was later arrested, although police say that no shots were fired.


Armed neo-Nazis also attended this weekend’s Detroit Pride parade but didn’t physically harm any attendees.
