yeah but these police would be in contact with their superiors letting them now whats going on, they arnt on the street standing there with no contact with people,
i just find it incredibly hard to believe that some dudes could dress up in army gear, get in their regular crown vic with penn. plates, and just drive around untouched unquestioned, esp. with the amount of police and others on patrol,
to try and attempt such a stunt (as you think it was) just seems so unplausible and retarded that it dosent work in my mind

I don't think it's so much that the video screams fake, Warren, as it doesn't seem to jive with the 'army' thing...there are a lot of inconsistencies. I have no doubt it was real, the reasoning behind it and the personnel involved are the big question for me. If these guys were military, they were the most out of uniform military I've ever seen. Not much attention paid to being good little soldiers. The guy in the front seat has his sleeves rolled inside out, like the corp used to do, but then his pants are unbloused. Marines are sticklers for wearing the uniform they earned, and army doesn't roll their sleeves like that.
When the car first stops, there's a guy on the far side, in the baseball cap that is wearing even a THIRD color camo. Almost blue. He doesn't get his hands dirty shoving the guy in the car.
And this guy they captured was either scared crapless, or was just being really compliant. There were a couple seconds in there where it seems like he only had one hand on each of his wrists. It seems that instinct would have been to jerk away and try to run. He did put his feet against the door jamb of the back of the crown vic before they put him in and it looked pretty legit, but stills of his face don't show the amount of anguish that one would expect from being in that situation. He is also holding his hands out right before they put him in the car and he just seems really compliant.
It almost made me think of the picking up of someone that knew they weren't in a lot of trouble...almost a rescue, like a provocateur, then the abduction of a protester....just so many inconsistencies.
I was also thinking that rather than military, they could have been spooks...that would explain the lack of attention to detail on the uniforms and the mismatched camo.
Either way, I think it had a definite effect, whether it was intended to have that effect is the question...anyway, that's some bunk crap.
Good job getting this up here.
