The police in my city can't even manage to arrest people for drugs and domestic abuse let alone pull this one off. Do people really sit up and worry about this nonsense? Without a doubt on a federal level I can see that they want more and more rights stripped from the general public but I have a hard time buying into this stuff. Right now as I type this (I live outside of Buffalo N.Y.) 10 miles of the thruway is closed down with people stranded on the thruway because of lake effect snowstorm. Less than 100yds off of the thruway in that area is civilization and exit ramps to which the local and state law enforcement can't get the stranded people who have been stuck on the thruway all night off. Just going by something that happens all the time here in the snow belt area of the country and seeing how ill prepared they are for something "routine", I can only guess how they would bungle something of great significance up..
The lights you see off in the distance is a parking lot for a business district aka civilization.
