"Capt. Michael" is from Montenegro. Thus, the flag.
That flag of Montenegro is not the flag that was on the car decals. It was definitely the flag of Serbia. They both have the double-headed eagle, but at least the inside part is different.
They are neighboring countries, of course.

We should start the "ATS Police Force", make uniforms, badges, patches, get vehicles and such, and then start arresting all these criminal mercenaries & politicians!
I know, I know, not practical. But it would be fun

Well, I'm leaning towards some kind of media event on this. I mean, who calls a private company American Police Force (@all for f#'s sake!) & then puts a crook, who is apparently on the run from damages awarded against him, in charge? Then there's the defence contractor who APF are linked to; apparently able to supply a significant portion of the USA's arms output, but run by a playboy who cant use a spellchecker & whose net presence makes him a conspicuous target for kidnapping?
Still, it could be a bad con job, put together by people for whom english is a 2nd language...
Then again, if its "legit", if I lived in the USA, I'd feel the need to go to Hardin & protest, soon, before its accepted. Has the ACLU become taboo?
Montana's attorney general has launched an investigation into a California company's plan to take over the city of Hardin's $27 million jail, following revelations that the company's lead figure is a convicted felon with a history of fraud.
Michael Hilton, who formed Santa Ana, Calif.-based American Police Force in March, came to Hardin last month promising to fill the city's never-used jail and build an adjacent military and law enforcement training center.
Hilton has a decades-long track record of fraudulent activities and spent several years in a California prison on grand theft charges. The native of Montenegro uses at least 17 aliases.
Attorney General Steve Bullock said Thursday he is asking Hardin officials for all documents related to their dealings with Hilton and American Police Force.

Alethea, which "other 30 cities" are you referring to??...I've been reading most of the posts here, I may have missed something??
wackenhut main business objective of the company is to provide security and investigative services, first to the US Government...
The darker side of Wackenhut's ambitious enterprise, is its direct involvement in illegal and black projects. Nichols corporation, Meridian Arms, a subsidiary of Meridian International Logistics, was licensed in California in 1987 to posses and/or transport machine guns under the Permit No. 01678, and to sell machine guns under Permit No. 01677.
USA • Protection of US defence facilities • Support to the US military • US embassy security in 39 countries • Fire fighting for US armed forces in Iraq. they are trying to expand quickly into the US, and they have ties
(mostly in Europe at the moment) to the banks, the police, the prison
services and the courts.
This is a big company with a lot of contacts, a lot of inside
information, and a history of screwing up and hiring thugs.
So, whether they are going to take charge of the gitmo prisoners, or
if they are there for some other purpose, my belief is that you
wouldn't want these guys in charge of anything.
December 2008/January 2009 - CER BULLETIN, ISSUE 63 The economic crisis offers unprecedented opportunities for reforming global rules and institutions. Furthermore, the Obama presidency - which Europeans expect to be less unilateralist than that of George W Bush - will give the EU a chance to work with the US in tackling a host of international problems.
Peterson, the Hardin official, says the controversy sparked last week when APF executives appeared in black SUVs marked "City Of Hardin Police Department" was a misunderstanding of an act of goodwill by the company. The decals were taken off within the day, he says.
Late Update: Yet another strange development: This page on APF's Web site brags about "our extensive tactical firearms training facility, the U.S. Training Center." But the U.S. Training Center is part of Xe, nee Blackwater. And Xe spokeswoman Stacy DeLuke told us there is no affiliation between Xe and APF.
