Before I discuss the news I learned today, I'd like to introduce myself. I've been lurking ATS for months now so I am not new to the information I see
here on a daily basis. Everything I think or want to discuss has already been posted before me so I never bothered signing up until today.
For those who have been reading the past few days, I learned that many hundreds of tanks were being carried on a train out in the open in California
for everyone to see. Supposedly our government is going to send our military to the southern border (California, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas) for an
agenda I am not clear of. This information is only what I have learned from speculation, I am not stating that this is fact.
Anyways, I was on FB and ran into this news article stating :
City Council on Tuesday planned on reviewing a contract between EPPD and G4S Secure Solutions said to provide prisoner booking, transportation
and watch services.
I live in El Paso, where we have the biggest military base in the country; Fort Bliss. We have more than enough officers including soldiers. Ft. Bliss
takes up 1/4 of the city because it is so damn huge. I do not see any reason why the city wants to hire G4S when we have the man power back home. If
anything they should create more jobs instead of spending the tax money outside the city.
I might just be a little paranoid but I don't like the news of this one bit.
Not an Introduction Thread
The Introduction Forum is for introductions To tell something about you; not to start a thread about a topic.“Intro threads” that are
really “topic threads” will be removed.
Welcome to ATS, it’s time to introduce yourself.
This area is solely for introducing yourself (as you can see by browsing through other Introduction threads by new members). We apologize for this
inconvenience, but its a necessity for a website as large as ours. I've had to remove your entire post as it goes against our policies.
Strict code's like this are in place to help keep the machine 'running smoothly'. One of these policies is that members need to post their thoughts in
the appropriate areas. I'm sure you'll understand the necessity for us having rules like this. It helps keep all the great threads and topics in their
perspective areas of interest and not all lumped together, making it difficult to find when wanting to make additional comments.
You have posted what could be a very interesting topic in the "Introductions thread". With that said, I'm going to have to close this thread as it
does not comply with the above stated rules. After you have managed to get 20 posts under your belt, start your own thread in one of the appropriate
Thread closed, you can contact me by a private message for more information if needed after you have read the links provided above and
