Memo Ahead of Pope's Visit to U.S. Warns of Terrorists Dressed as Police

September 21, 2015  | 

Pennsylvania State Police sent out an alert last week to its department and law enforcement partners as a reminder to be vigilant of persons who may try to impersonate police, fire and first responders in order to carry out an attack in the U.S., reports CBS News.

Pennsylvania State Police confirm that a memo was sent out, but was not related specifically to Pope Francis' visit. Pope Francis is wrapping up his trip in Cuba and arrives in the U.S. on Tuesday.

The official said there are no credible known threats against the Holy Father. However, the official said the alert would apply to the pope's visit as well.

I am a life long Roman Catholic, yet I do not agree with most of his political stands, but I hope the Holy Father has a wonderful and safe trip and he is able to show the word how much love he has in his heart for all mankind. God forbid that he would be harmed but if it happens I can guarantee you that it will be a Liberal, non believer or a non Christian or atheist that does it. Libs, atheists and non Christians (radical Muslims) can't stomach this message of peace and love and his bringing God into the world. May he olive long life and be safe.

Great...like we don't already have enough to worry about. I wonder if this was real or this became real after the media told the story and put ideas in the head of nuballs. Sorry Kev but republicans are the non believers they only worship one thing...money.

It's going to happen if we keep letting all the refugees in from everywhere. Why are they not fighting for their own country as Americans have done. We have got to close our borders, PERIOD.
