I never noticed that! An excellent observation!

Something subliminal? I mean, that patriotic smiling girl must surely be safe from him!

Don't woory untill you see one of these mounted on a tank. It is a good tool for event parking lots and other short term gigs but it would be to easy take down or disable in any type of uprising.

with the added presence in te past 2years of military and police activity in civilian populaces, it seems like they are definitely training for some sort of event.

2 things just seem to ping to me.

1) a severe catastrophic event

2) social unrest (due to a number of things- war, politicaly charged civil unrest, etc.)

I do have to say that I've had 'spider senses' saying something on a natural scale might occur. but that's just me...

Now you see what all this fearmongering and brainwashing does to you? Take a good look at that picture... It is winter, other people have scarves and hats on etc. You see a guy with a hat and scarf wrapped around his face, and you see a terrorist.... Are you kidding me? Maybe you don't live where there are real winters like me, but it is normal for people to wrap their face with a scarf, or even use a facemask here, and back in north NY where I used to live lol. Terrorist indeed....

Boy you guy's get worked up over the littlest things. What is the difference if the police are sitting in a car watching, walking around watching, or with a birds' eye view watching.

I first time saw these in 2003 at Mardi Gras in New Orleans. If you have ever been to Mardi Gras, you know that you cannot see more than five feet in front of you at any given time, due to the sea of people. It was a great asset to the police, and to tell you the truth, I felt better knowing they were up there seeing the punk ass kids starting fights and shooting people.

So again, what's the difference if they were just hanging around on the ground?

I saw them in the Wal Mart parking lot two years ago. I thought it was just a Florida thing. The one down there had the police department's logo on the side.

My question is...WHERE ARE THE MILITIAS? Why are these not toppled over in a burning heap yet? Can't believe some people are defending their use. It is ALL SO INNOCUOUS isn't it.

Let's hear it! Something to be concerned about? Or a "just relax, and move on" development?


Relax and move on!

Seriously, these are used to enhance security during the holiday shopping season.



Nope the one I saw in Florida was there in September. That really isn't a time of the year known for a mad holiday rush. It was actually on a Thursday afternoon. I remember because I was headed to Nashville and was afraid I might not make it in time.

Unbelieveable! I watched the product video on the ICX site and I was impressed, although I still wouldn't want to be up there if the shtf. With it being bullet proof to withstand 7.62 armor piercing rounds, you had better think twice before attacking this with your conventional handgun or hunting rifle. If they offer a unit that has rangefinding and targeting capabilities with a remotely controlled weapons system (I'm betting its on the options list) this could be a fairly formidable system.

One other thing I'd like to address is what someone mentioned about terrorist lists. You don't have to apply to get on that. The average American is on 600 or more lists as it is, such as postal records, military service, voter regestration cards, schools, drivers license, unemployment, food stamps, hospitals you've been in, etc. So basically, big brother knows more about you than you do!

Wake me in time for the revolution.

Pretty much what I saw on Bourbon street during the Bayou Classic. Given that the shootings were off the strip...yah, it did make me feel more secure. Enough so that I bought a NOPD t shirt.

Freedom Group owns a very small percentage of the gun market. They own Barnes bullets, Remmington, H&R, Marlin, and Panther. That is less than 20% percent of the gun manufacturers and bullet manufacturers. I think Soros is a bit dangerous and has a god complex. We don't have to stretch the truth to prove it though.

You still have the group that own Auto Ordance, Thompson and Kahr. There is the S&W company, Ruger, Colt, Taurus/Bras Tech, Kel Tec, Federal ammunition, Sellier & Bellot, Glock, Sig Sauer, Para Ordance, Les Baer, STI, Bersa, CZ, and a number of other gun and ammo manufacturers.

These could be handy for a place like WalMart especially around holiday time, to catch shoplifters on camera that flee the store. But, if that were the case, shouldn't walmart just put up it's own cameras for that purpose? The WalMart buildings themselves are already bristling with cameras...


The cameras mounted on Wal Mart are to catch employee theft. I worked at Wal Mart when I was a teen and became friends with some of the LP guys. They basically only use it for monitoring their employees. They refused to turn over video to the poice a couple of times. They said the information was proprietary and would not be released without a warrant.

The police stopped asking after a while. It was too much hassle for things like a minor bump and run, or property damage.

What state do you live? I know in NY security cameras are used to catch thief customers, as well as employees. When I was in HS I was head of the recieving team at a Macy's, during slow periods I would hang with the hot security guard. They had 3 people whose job it was just to watch a bank of cam monitors, then a few security guards to go arrest thieves. The camera guys job was to catch them in the act, then direct the guards to the thief, and warn them if they saw signs of a weapon. Then the guards would just hang back and follow them until the police got there. The guards could not carry anything other than a flashlight and walkietalkie, no weapons. If they got to the car before the police got there, there were cameras in the parkinglot to catch the liscence number.

Now, I know what ur thinking, why would Soros
have his hands in the pie of one of the largest
firearms and ammo company in America when
Soros himself is pushing for Total Gun Control
through the UN Treaty?


The answer u gave to this question could be right. On the other hand, there need be no more reason for him to get into the gun business than the fact that paranoia has sent sales of guns skyrocketing. He has a nose for money and true to style is taking advantage of the market.

Of course I suppose he could be after money and pivotal power too; in which case your answer still applies. I think he is smart enough to do both things.

After All?

you ever doubted him being right?

JUST BECAUSE HE MAKES MONEY FROM IT DOESNT MAKE HIM A LIAR

when will people realise this already....

Or was it simply that he was too "out of the box" to be real? Too hard to believe?

Trust me.. anyone from OUTSIDE the USA simply KNOWS he's telling the truth. Observing from the outside in is easier then when ur in the middle of it.

I saw one of these in New orleans on new years eve 2006/2007. The cops were not happy with my curiosity to say the least. As I got close to it, studying it, cops immediately approached me. "Get back!" and "Do you want to go to jail?" was the only answer I received to my questions of it's purpose and features. I did back off as I had seen the treatment of the "non-compliant" earlier in the night.......A mounted policeman allowed/directed his horse to buck a man who was handcuffed and on the curb. I don't know what he did, but he was apprehended and was just sitting there awaiting a squad car when the horse trotted over to him, rammed his head into his chest and bit his leg a couple of times before he lost interest.
Anyway, these things are as real as the coming police state. I just pray that we will all be courageous enough to stop it before it's too late

While sitting there arrested and waiting to be processed (nasty word huh?) the cops probably realised he was now also breaking the "no sitting or lying on the curb" law, making him a worthy target for a 2m big horse.
