If riots started in america, who are the people that dress in riot gear and bash the protesters in the US? is it a private company? or is it a section of the military that I've never heard of? Or is it just the local police? Just wondering.

From what I understand the police force in Egypt is part of the main government.

Just the local police.

If it was beyond their ability to control, maybe the National Guard.

The special forces and snipers who have probably killed a lot of protestors in Egypt are probable comparable to SWAT?

They can't use the military on the population by the constitution.That being said they can use the local cops,county sherriffs,state troopers, and the rent a gestapo like blackwater. Just for debates sake here's a video link for a weapon developed by blackwater. www.youtube.com... . Now what do you think they made this for???????

I beleive it's a great time to start a uprising now. Obama has been blabbing he is with the protesters( yeah right) if this happened on his white house door step, there would be a very violent response from the police. And due to the unrest around the world, the new age news sites( like this one) will exspose them. Know what i am saying.
A flood only starts with one spot of rain. V

Not really a secret. This was very widely reported at the time, and is a well known, and well documented event.

Actually, when my wife is gone for extended periods of time, I like to visit the airport just for that violation. If you paid them for it, you would be arrested for soliciting prostitution.

They sent the National Guard overseas didn't they?

Every town you enter around here there is a sign that says: "Thank you deployed SD National Guard."

Not all of them. Some states have sent a greater percentage of them than other states. However, I know dozens of people who are in the National Guard in multiple states. Of all of those people, only 6 or 8 are currently deployed.

Of course. But there's an addendum dating from October 2010. This guy:



Terry Norman was a paid informer and was photographing protesters for the FBI. He carried a .38, had a press card issued by the Guard, and brought his own gas mask.

Four bullets from his gun were found to be fired.

You can read more and listen to the audio here:

Convince you of what?

There are still unanswered questions about Norman's role in the incident. Norman admitted to positioning himself between the Guardsmen and the protestors and throwing rocks at the students. He claimed to have thrown two or three rocks, but Masterson put the number at closer to "half a dozen, a dozen". Captain John Martin said that he had also noticed Norman throwing rocks and had asked himself, "What is this idiot doing?". It is unclear whether Norman was acting on the behest of his employers in the campus police or FBI, or acting on his own accord.

It is also unclear why the FBI initially lied to the public when it claimed to have no relationship with Norman, and why they had announced that his gun had never been fired, when the FBI lab report indicated that it had been fired since its last cleaning. The lab was unable to ascertain where or when the gun had been fired.
