A photo showing fully armed U.S. National Guard troops patrolling a quiet residential street in Crookston, Minnesota has gone viral, once again underscoring concerns that Americans are being conditioned to accept the gradual imposition of martial law.
According to “Maggie,” the woman who took the photograph, when she started taking pictures of the troops one of them told her, “Just training Ma’am. Joining up with another patrol at the rally point.” When Maggie asked why they were training on the streets of a quiet residential area, a younger soldier responded, “To be honest ma’am, I don’t know.”

Well this looks like a training exercise for this kind of thing. which is disturbing in and of itself. They have fake towns for this kind of stuff, but I would imagine that since they are using a real town that indicates the demand for this kind of training exceeds their supply of fake towns and civilian actors. Meaning that they really want soldiers to know how to police America.
