This is a current event because it just happened (@11:35AM Pacific Time)
I was a passenger in a car travelling south i-5, we had just left Seattle to go to Federal Way and were maybe halfway there when we saw, in the
northbound lanes, one of those White Homeland Security SUVs
(image search for reference)
with the lights flashing, heading north, in the direction of Seattle (and a lot of other places in the Puget Sound
area, like Kirkland, home of Nintendo, or Bellevue, home of TMobile/Metro for example, Bill Gates home is somewhere around the area and Microsoft, and
Amazon also has a location in the area but don't think theyre headquartered here. Also SeaTac airport, Boeing Field Airport, lots of boeing facilities
up and down The Sound).
I posted it because I've never seen one of those with their lights on.And I figured he PROBABLY wasn't just assisting with a traffic stop (or...so
they DO that??) and...
I thought maybe someone at ATS could tell me and also inform others who may see this thread, for future notice:
What reasons would one of those have their lights flashing, going down the freeway?
DO they assist with a traffic stop for any reason not related to "Homeland Security"?
Do they respond to an "officer down, shots fired" situation? Or does it have to be like a "all available units respond" situation like the Hollywood
Bank robbery in the movie Heat, with Val Kilmer?
Or do they Only respond to strictly terrorist situations like 9/11, Boston Marathon Bombers, or whatever else they consider "homeland security"?
So that way, this thread can turn out to be useful and educational even if they weren't going to anywhere super serious... But they couldve been. Some
drug bust involving crytpto currency scams happened in the Puget Sound area quite recently. I wonder if that was a HS issue? EDIT-
about Bremerton police initiating a multistate drug investigation
They had a guy in CA using cryptocurrency to help them to launder money to
