“Philadelphia police took at least one man into custody Thursday night as they probed an alleged plot to attack the city’s convention center where the swing state’s votes are still being counted, according to reports. Tensions have been high outside of the Pennsylvania Convention Center since Election Day, with opposing groups of President Donald Trump and Joe Biden supporters gathering to protest outside the building. But Philly police appear to have prevented something much more dangerous” The Daily Beast reports.
“According to multiple reports, a heavily-armed armed group is said to have driven a Hummer up from Virginia to carry out the alleged plot. No one was reported injured, and police did not identify the detained suspect or provide details about the threat. But video showed the suspect being taken away in handcuffs and police retrieving a large gun. The Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the group was armed with AR-15 rifles. The Inquirer also reported that a Hummer matching the description was seen with stickers linked to the QAnon conspiracy movement, including a large ‘Q’ and ‘#WWG1WGA,’ which the pro-Trump conspiracy theorists use to stand for “Where we go one, we go all”—the group’s motto. The Hummer has now been seized by police, according to Reuters.”
