Rodeo Drive stores warned to board up windows ahead of election chaos

Share

Beverly Hills business owners have been told to board up their windows by the local police, as officials expect chaos and rioting throughout Los Angeles following the presidential election if Trump wins.

The BHPD sent out a mass text to all business owners in the area on Friday, October 23, ‘strongly’ suggesting that all buildings on Rodeo Drive board up store windows by 11pm on Monday, November 2.

The department also informed owners that the famed street would be completely shut down by 12am that Monday, with no cars or pedestrians allowed to pass through.

The notice also stated that no businesses should be operating ‘out of safety for the community and business patrons’ during the road closure.

The text comes in anticipation of mass protests and possible rioting throughout the city on Tuesday, November 3, in the wake of the presidential election results.

Officials fear that peaceful demonstrations on either side could turn violent after the country learns whether President Donald Trump will secure another four years in office or if former VP Joe Biden will take control of the White House.

New York City has similar plans in place, as the NYPD is training every day and deploying hundreds of extra police officers as it braces for Election Day and its aftermath, amid fears riots and protests could break out after the results are announced.
