Boise's City Hall is currently barricaded down. Most of the perimeter is blocked off by waist high metal bars. City Officials and the Boise Police have been preparing all day for the planned protests later today. The Boise Mayor sent a letter to local downtown business owners and is publicly urging everyone to say clear of downtown as much as possible.

The planned protests from the Black Lives Matter side have made it clear that they will be present and in decent numbers, the mayor claiming that many of the protesters are not even from Boise but have traveled from other cities to cause havoc in the community. Many counter protesters are preparing to defend their city if it comes to that.
