New York police will use sand-filled trucks, radiation detectors, bomb-sniffing dogs and heavily armed officers on Thursday to defend the 90th Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade. According to Reuters, Islamic State has encouraged its followers to attack the parade, similar to the vicious attack carried out on Bastille Day last July in Nice, France. There, a terrorist drove a truck into a crowd of spectators, killing dozens of people. Officials expect 3.5 million people to converge on the 2.5-mile parade route in Manhattan. The annual, nationally televised ritual kicks off the holiday shopping season with giant balloons shaped like cartoon characters.
