In April, Roger Stone got coy when talking about the potential for violence at the Republican National Convention, where Donald Trump is expected to be nominated. Violence has been a major concern since Stone said he’d give out the room number of any GOP delegates who didn’t jump on the Trump Train.
It appears that angry voters knocking on the hotel rooms of delegates is far from the only possible violence that could come out of this convention.

There, you see an email from Trump’s New York campaign co-chair, Carl Paladino. He told an unbound delegate that they should be hung for treason for not ardently supporting a mogul-turned-reality-TV-star-turned-presidential-candidate in his bid for the highest office in the nation. He then promised to be “in [their] face” during the convention.
You can bet that this convention, with its speakers, threats, and all-around hype, is going to be one that won’t be forgotten for a long, long time. After all, Trump himself predicted “riots” if he isn’t handed that nomination.
