Florida Town Balks at Providing Security for Hillary Clinton

MIAMI — The South Florida town where Hillary Clinton is holding a campaign event Friday has refused to participate in her security detail, causing a dust-up among law enforcement agencies.

Mrs. Clinton will attend what is being billed as a “grass-roots” rally Friday afternoon at Broward College in Davie, a town of 90,000 people about 25 miles north of Miami. The college is accustomed to dignitary visits: the school hosted last year’s debate for governor and has provided security for Michelle Obama, Vice President Joseph R. Biden Jr. and his wife, Jill, and even the Dalai Lama.

But this time, when crowd expectations began to swell, the Davie Police Department balked at spending several extra thousand dollars on police overtime, according to several people familiar with the preparations.

    Just declare that it is a “gun free” zone.
    Then: NO PROBLEM

  • Piss on Hillary! Let her supply her own security, she has stolen enough money! They need to ask her what happened to that $6 Billion missing from her State Department, if it was stolen for her corrupt Clinton Foundation or did she and Obama use it to help finance and Arm ISIS in Syria? That is why Stevens had to die, because she and Hussein were Arming and Funding ISIS, he was about to pop their treasonous bubble and had to die. The other three were collateral damage for being brave Americans. Hussein and Hillary need to be in Gitmo!

  • Dave In Arizona

    Very surprised. Word has it, Davie, Florida is awash with Bosnian snipers.

  • Texas Dad

    I don’t blame them. Sapping public resources for this bullshit needs to be scrutinized and stopped. Ole Hillary has several hundred million dollars in the campaign coffers so let her build and pay for her own security detail.

      F’ing A RIGHT!
