I don't know if this can be linked to anything directly, but it just seems odd given the current economic circumstances and predictions about martial law.

They must not be expecting a very big riot.The number of items is very small for any thing major.

Wow, must be 25 or so hard-asses going to enforce martial law. As was previously posted, check the quanities.

Also, the military has had riot gear for quite a few years now.

Quantities like 50 don't really scare me. Where did you get this info. These bids usually come from a GAO. I have one and the wording and format don't jive with what I am accustomed to.

Maybe for the Mexican drug problems at our borders. There are big issues developing there and it looks like it's coming into the US

no one noticed who it for?

The USA ACA Fort Leavenworth requires the following items, Meet or Exceed, to the following

and wiki tells us what some of us may already know

Fort Leavenworth also accommodates the Department of Defense's only maximum security prison

max security military prison ordering small quantaties of riot gear for its guards .... guess martial law will have to wait until next week
