Let me start by saying this is a drill. Just a paranoid alert to keep all of us up on the adrenaline rush. I make NO claims here, and this is just a
thought exercise. No reason for alarm, as it's just a passing thought of the "what if" flavor.
There is now a rock headed for the real estate we currently posses, or at the very least, close to it. There's a lot of open questions on this either
hitting Earth or having some other interaction. (Look for the other threads, you people are smart enough to find them here on ATS.)
Now consider this: if said rock was a pretty sure bet of causing damage to some great degree, wouldn't it be likely that there would be an increased
police presence? Wouldn't part time police be called up, and made aware of the patrol area? Wouldn't "they" want extra cops on hand and ready to
work at a moments notice, or even on patrol during such an event?
We're all aware of just how scared the PTB are of a public panic. It would seem reasonable that even if this event were just a possibility, "they"
would want to be ready to contain things should it really happen. Any group in power likes having a cop on every corner when things go sour.
And the "boys in blue" on the ground would have no more information than the average Joe, at least till the last minute. That way, if nothing
happened, there would be no need for explanations even to them. They would be told how they have just upgraded their training, blah, blah, blah.
Just something to think about.
