In the wake of Charlottesville, all eyes are turning to Boston, which is scheduled to hold a "Free Speech Rally" on Saturday afternoon.
Just one week after the disastrous "Unite the Right" rally in Virginia that left one woman dead and dozens more injured and just days after Boston's Holocaust Memorial was smashed to pieces -- the City of Boston and Police Commissioner William Evans were preparing for possible confrontations at the "Free Speech Rally," organized by the Boston Free Speech Coalition.
In order to keep the peace between conservative activists and leftist counter-protesters during a rally that could draw thousands of people to Boston Common, the city is deploying 500 police officers -- some in uniform, others undercover, Williams said.

The parking lot at your local retail store is packed but there seems to be an open space near the front door. As you pull into the space, it's been taken -- by a shopping.
It's annoying to see those carts with two wheels up on the curb taking up a prime spot, but are you also guilty of not returning shopping carts to the store or to the receptacles in the parking lot?
A blogger in Phoenix shared her frustration with the rogue carts. "It shouldn't bother me to see a rogue cart, but it does. Like ridiculously bothers me," Erica Jenkins wrote.
According to Scientific American, there are six reasons why people don't return carts:
Tom Wopat allegedly grabbed a woman's butt and put his finger between her butt cheeks, and that's why he was arrested for felony indecent assault.
According to the police report, obtained by TMZ, Wopat was rehearsing his show, "42nd Street," at the Reagle Theatre in Waltham, MA on July 23 when a woman on the set claims he walked behind her and she felt his hand grab her butt. She also says she felt his fingers go between her butt cheeks.
She complained to one of the honchos about the incident, and Wopat was confronted. According to the police report, he denied touching the woman and said, "---- them all."
There are 2 other incidents mentioned in the police report, both occurring during rehearsals. In one case a woman says he came up from behind her and wrapped his arm around her hip and lower waist, pulling her into him. In another instance a woman says he peeled sunburned skin off her arm. read more
ELYRIA, Ohio - Five children were found infested with fleas, lice and bedbugs and sweating in the back of a U-haul truck Wednesday, police said.
The children were in the back of the truck with Jamie Adkins, 25, while Brian Dekam, 55, drove them to a flea market, according to WKYC.
They stopped at a gas station when a customer saw the children in the back and called police.
Adkins had been babysitting four of the children for about two weeks. The mother knew about the plan to take them the nearly 40-mile drive in the back of a U-haul and called it fun, police said.
Adkins and Dekam were arrested and charged with multiple counts of endangering children, including one charge that is a third-degree felony. They were released and expected in court Thursday.
