I heard from an old architect buddy that the superwalmarts have highly secure roll up doors at each entrance, one at the pharmacy and one at the food entrance...look up when walking in and see the super large housing for these roll up doors...won't show on the plans on file with the authorities but there for sure...see for yourselves...
Walmart under bushco was to be the food distribution after TSHTF...but that agenda is not over.

Not hardly, considering the LEO agencies around the nation are turning into more of a para-military group. Just look, no more tin badges, but instead, tactical pants, tactical vests, thigh holsters, jungle boots....you seriously can't be that naive?

These towers are nothing more than crime deterrents; and, I applaud them.

I was talking to a Virginia State Trooper. The topic of "community policing" was brought into the conversation. He said, and I quote, "We are not police, we are a paramilitary organization employed by the State to Enforce The Law."
I've said it before- Ex-military people should not be allowed to be police. And, police should not be allowed to wear military uniforms. As far as I'm concerned the officer's statement was a clear violation of posse comitatus. I also firmly believe that a cop merely wearing a military uniform is a violation.

Looks like a much more convenient version of the surveilance towers people were reporting months back at wal-marts etc... Night vision, thermal vison, bullet proof, so on and so forth...

US lawmakers yesterday witnessed a special demonstration of the Mobile Utility Surveillance Tower (MUST), an elevated monitoring tower that is set to be used by law enforcement in the United States as part of an emergency response to civil unrest.
The device, manufactured by Terrahawk, LLC, is basically a high-tech prison guard tower fitted with surveillance and communications capabilities.
It was demonstrated yesterday to “Members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the Senate along with their staffs; with MUST, law enforcement agencies can quickly set up a mobile surveillance tower for emergency response, crowd control, or general surveillance,” reports Homeland Security Newswire.
The fact that Congress members and Senators were given a special demonstration of the unit suggests that its makers are pushing for the device to be approved for widespread use by law enforcement domestically, and not just on the border with Mexico.
Indeed, the tower is already being used inside the United States on a limited scale. In December, members of the South New Jersey Tyranny Response Team spotted one of the units with blacked-out windows situated next to a city park in a low crime area where it remained for several days.
The tower has also been designed to be bullet-proof, its paneling consists of ballistic shields, suggesting that its use is intended for hostile situations, not merely general surveillance...
...“The portable surveillance vehicle has already been purchased by police departments across the United States and it has been deployed along the Texas border by several sheriff’s departments,” states the HSNW report.
Another promotional video for the device shows it being used outside a sports stadium...
Lawmakers Pushed To Approve High-Tech Guard Tower For “Crowd Control”
That video showing it outside a stadium creeps me out...
"The sports facilities are the detention/relocation camps..."
