Manifestantes de ambos bandos, a favor y en contra de este controvertido y corrosivo ex alcalde y comisario de policía de la ciudad, han sido convocados hoy para protestar frente a su estatua. Una de las manifestaciones tendrá lugar hoy lunes a las 4PM, mientras que la otra, convocada por los seguidores de Rizzo, ha sido denegada por el Ayuntamiento.

One is set to occur at 4PM today, while the other, comprised of Rizzo's devotees, has been shut down by the City.

He may have died a day before the attacks when explosives that the group was manufacturing accidentally detonated.
