RICHMOND, Va. (WRIC) — Police are taking steps in Richmond to calm worries about potential violence at a Friday night Donald Trump rally in Richmond.
The secret service will screen everyone entering the Richmond Coliseum. No one is allowed to bring signs with sticks, banners, bags or backpacks. Anything that could be taken as a weapon is also banned. Anyone disrupting the event may be asked to leave. Local, state, and federal law enforcement officers will guard the event after mass violence broke out at Trump events in California and New Mexico.
