One side says it's imtimidation, the other side says it's protecting the integrity of the polls/polling location.

That's all good and fine until "protecting the integrity of the polls/polling location" basically comes down to "don't let brown people vote".

Let's be real here. Someone point me in the direction of an instance when a polling location was compromised. Would these LARPers have made any difference if such an instance ever happened?

Things I imagine they’re being trained to say:

“You have to show me your ID and proof of residence and citizenship.”

“We’re making a citizen’s arrest on the charge of vote fraud/illegal immigration/sedition.”

IT’S COMING RIGHT FOR US!!!

Let's say they were hired by the Trump campaign. What would the consequences be?

The men’s presence came at a time of tension and fears of unrest at the polls following the Trump campaign’s promise to send “an army” of poll watchers to voting sites. During the first presidential debate, Trump urged supporters to “go into the polls and watch very carefully.”

Gualtieri said that while the men may have made some voters feel uneasy, they had not violated laws.

“All of a sudden two people arrived, they were wearing tan khaki pants, they had on blue polo shirts with a security guard insignia on them,” Gualtieri said. “They were also armed and they were wearing gun belts and they had firearms. That caused some concerns because of the heightened awareness.”

But he added, “Their mere presence does not constitute voter coercion or intimidation. Some people may see these people here and it doesn’t give them a great feeling. On the other side of the coin, it may give others a good feeling, because they feel protected.”

Antifa, BLM, illegals, cannibalistic pedophiles, leftists in general... Just because they don’t pose an actual violent threat doesn’t mean people don’t think they do.

That's odd. I've never heard about any of those groups ever interfering in someone's ability to vote. Even the cannibalistic pedophiles are respectful.
