Go back to your tea and crumpets.
Don't worry about the affairs of us here in the states.
Hollow point bullets are:
(1) Violation of the Geneva Conventions. They were OUTLAWED after troops started Xing their rounds in WWI. Look up “DUM DUM” bullets.
they are DESIGNED to MAIM and create atrocious wounds. Solid core, FMJ (Full Metal Jacket) bullets just make a piecing hole.
(2) Used against UNarmored personnel. Body armor actually “prefers” hollow points. Armor-piecing, solid core bullets, piece body armor. DUMDUMS mush out and penetrate LESS.
(3) Thus we are led to the conclusion the plan is to attack UNarmored CIVILIAN Personnel, NOT “Enemy Combatants” that would wear armor

The photo shown above was taken by a subscriber in the city of Crookston, MN from the front porch of her suburban home. No, the men pictured aren’t from the local high school’s J.R.O.T.C sqaud – they are in fact trained soldiers serving in the Minnessota National Guard, Unit 2-136 CAB / B Company. Now, I have never personally been to Crookston (although I’m sure it’s lovely), but I’m relatively confident that they are located on domestic soil,

You took an oath to uphold the constitution did you not? I suggest you read it, if you don't understand the point of that statement

Wow.... ^^^^^ this is the type of people we have protecting us? No wonder we keep seeing stuff like soldiers posing with corpses. We got a bunch of screw offs like this guy who can't be bothered to read the constitution. All he probably cared about was "When do I get to shoot my gun? Preferably at another human being!"

I grew up in this area, well northern Minnesota has been my stomping grounds more namely International Falls, MN. I have seen in multiple towns this scenerio and its not just isolated to crookston. Walker, MN. Cook, MN.
Green Way, MN and more. Currently Im in the metro area and I live next to the military base in St. Paul by the mississippi. There is a walking trail next to the river and it follows the usual flight path of any incoming air craft, and military helicopters have been in and out the last couple weeks like crazy. I still remember the days I would hardly ever hear one. My dad is ex marine corp and whenever he is over he always says they are supplying the base, Im not sure how accurate that statement is. It drew my interest though, and it made me ask why they where supplying so much for so long. Maybe someone knows this to, two huge cargo planes that travel in a pair, they are for sure military, Ive seen them take off and land numerous times. Not sure what they are called....Just my eye witnesses observation of increased military activity.
