Denver Police receive 50 unmarked vans for the DNC

On Monday, the fenced lot in front of the Denver Police Academy at 8895 Montview Boulevard was empty. On Wednesday it was filled with 50-or-so large vans with license plates ranging from California, Nevada and Florida. None of them were marked as police vehicles, but don't be surprised if they're used to transport unruly protesters to so-called Gitmo on the Platte. More photos after the jump. --Jared Jacang Maher
