It's not uncommon to see to police and FBI raids on political organizers in the months, weeks, and days leading up to presidential conventions. Media coverage about lawbreakers and anarchy dominate the air waves, allowing police to be more heavy-handed towards people demonstrating.

This year there have been less crackdowns than most conventions in recent years, still in the weeks and days leading to the RNC in Tampa, media outlets and police have begun putting out stories about anarchists with no political agenda coming to Tampa hell bent on breaking things, rioting, and attacking police.
With little to nothing in form of raids or examples of upcoming threats, the DHS released an intelligence bulletin to CNN in the days before the RNC outlining areas that "anarchist extremist" may attack. According to the DHS and FBI, though, they have no specific groups or people that they are investigating.
