Take a look at Occupy(mass police forces showing up and arresting people left and right police brutality and god knows what other unnamed crimes,
"free speech zones", etc.). Imagine if all those protesters we're highly educated, exercising their right to bear arms and DEMANDING THE CORRUPT
POLITICIANS BE PLACED IN IMMEDIATE INCARCERATION UNDER CITIZENS ARREST PENDING A FAIR AND JUST TRIAL WITH CITIZEN CHOSEN JUDGES AND JURY like our
Founding Fathers would of HOPED we would do right now instead of moping about going day in and day out doing the same thing drafting polls about how
the entire country is a god damn lie(not bagging on you OP). Obama, Bush, Clinton should have ALL been impeached(and many before) yet we continue to
let the FEDERAL RESERVE BANKING CARTEL and a CORRUPTED CONGRESS run this "Country". This isn't a country anymore. You have no substantial input into
how things are ran anymore. You don't. The next election is RIGGED and if the people don't get up and #ing do something about it everyones screwed.
Hillary Clinton should be in JAIL right now, NOT on television.
I've covered this before on ATS as well. Here is another angle to consider.
I think surveillance tech, tightly controlled media and perfected subterfuge techniques are keeping ALL of us from knowing, if, new activist groups
are springing up across the country. I'd argue that the government today, nips such movements in the bud, sending potential participants to jail,
will-nilly, with no due process like protesters got in the 60's and in turn give them horrible plea bargains at the end. I think some people ARE
indeed trying to take action, but are being quickly stomped out, rounded up by LEO's and NONE of it gets to the media, including blogger and Instagram
The FBI said Friday it has
deployed about 100 agents to the St. Louis area ahead of the decision, in case demonstrators take to the streets
This number certainly doesn't include secret agents from other Federal, State or local law enforcement agencies. Make no mistake surveillance tech,
tightly controlled media and perfected subterfuge techniques are keeping ALL of us from knowing if new activist groups are springing up.
I'll give a simple example of something I thought for sure I would see in USA streets during riots, but have yet to see it happen. During Occupy,
protesters from EVERY city were easily dispersed by tear gas and flash bangs. Why? Didn't Occupy participants have knowledge that such tactics would
be used against them? Did they not prepare to neutralize the effects, especially with some ex-military people participating? The rioters is Greece
and Spain were not as easy to disperse, in fact they were not dispersed at all by LEO's.
So I'm supposed to believe that most protesters in the USA, NEVER, thought to prepare and had Goggles/eye-protection, shields, or safety/chemical
respirators with them at all times? ALL OF THIS STUFF IS OVER THE COUNTER, but NONE of the protesters I have seen since the 1990's prepare with such
Another example, imagine if the cop, from the UC Davis scandal, started pepper spraying the student protesters, only to find out that they ALL had
respirators and goggles on hand. Would he have instead, started to beat them with his night stick, out of frustration? I would say, most likely,
If protesters know they are going to get shot with rubber bullets and bean bag shotguns, a defensive formation like the Ancient Roman/Greek Phalanx
should be Standard Operating Procedure, but nope, they just stand around until the SHTF and then start running in every direction, as if, being shot
at by LEO's was an impossibility.
Here are some images of European protesters forming an impromptu phalanx. Note, I've NEVER seen it done this way, EVER, at any, American protest
(note that nearly everyone in the crowd is also wearing civilian grade respirators):
in contrast, here is the American version, cut-up Rubbermaid trash cans, polyester neck gaiter and cotton hoodies:
When it comes to effective protesting and HOLDING ground against LEO's, Americans don't know squat!!!
Respirators, Goggles and Safety Helemts, in that order, should be mandatory kit for modern protests in the USA.
I understand why people INITIALLY run from the bean bag rounds and rubber bullets, but ALL protestors should learn, eventually, at least by their
SECOND PROTEST, to hold their ground for flash bangs and tear gas. Doing so effectively requires, AT MINIMUM, bringing Respirators and Goggles with
you, to the protests (ear protection and safety helmets won't hurt either). Based on what I recommended protesters use, in regards to protective
gear, tear gas and flash bangs should be nearly ineffective at dispersing crowds, as opposed to bean bag rounds or rubber bullets.
Look at these guys in Keiv, they know exactly what they are doing, they are even wearing construction hard-hats, for crying out loud:
We need more of this:
and much, MUCH, less of this:
So whats different about American protesters versus Europeans? My guess is anyone that could teach American protesters proper tactics, to counter
LEO's, are quickly arrested on trumped up charges and threatened to never return to help the activists again. American protesters are so poorly
organized, that I can't imagine them EVER having an ounce of success, but at the same time I think surveillance tech, tightly controlled media and
perfected subterfuge techniques are ENTIRELY responsible for said poor organization and preparation for the acts of protesting.
