Cops are afraid because they are being told that Americans will rise up and try to forcibly overthrow the government. They are being shown the video
from the EU and Middle East that show the ongoing battles with the populace because of what is euphemistically being called "austerity measures".
Austerity is the governments desperate efforts to squeeze even more money from the populace to prevent its default on the loans to the banks. To pay
back this enormous amount of money the governments of these countries have been selectively increasing costs and cutting back on services to the
You've seen the riots. Call it what you will, the people in these hardest hit countries are watching their taxes, fees, tuitions and costs rise,
while their wages, pensions, medical services and benefits erode before their eyes. Thats why you see students riot one day, then job unions the next.
Rather than cut costs and services at the top, the leaders of these countries are making the people pay ever more and they are feeling the hurt. The
riots so far are picnics compared to whats coming.
Since big government is unwilling to yield and corruption reigns, you can expect this situation to get only worse over time. American law enforcement
is being told to prepare for the same kinds of eventualities here. To in fact fight against the very Americans they are supposed to be protecting. The
citizens are the enemy now. Not the government or corporations.
When you hear of huge purchases of ammunition and the instances of over policing and brutality on the rise, when you witness the fundamental changes
in law enforcement to a more military style presence, combined with the sweeping changes in legislature pertaining to surveillance, due process and
the justice system, then you can see the preparations being made to control the population here in the states too.
It isn't here yet, just being prepared for. The scary part for the police is that they are a thin line guarding all those government buildings,
corporate offices and factories from millions of armed Americans and they know it.
I expect that if civil unrest becomes so prevalent that cities and services are shut down as a result, that the police will gather in their fortress
police stations and hunker down with their families and millions of rounds... waiting. Either that or they will shed their uniforms, go home and
become civilians again.
What is happening in EU and Middkle Eastern nations now is a precursor to the real world wide revolt that is coming and we can watch the situation
unfold there first before it finally comes to haunt us here. What happens there will happen here too. We have the biggest debt in the world and the
most greedy and power hungry people on the planet in charge at the top.
A lot of people seem to think that America will keep plowing along making war overseas, and building debt here at home without consequences for those
actions. The entire fabric of what we call the West is crumbling. These EU nations like Italy, Greece and Spain are all a part of Nato. The control
over various nations in the middle east like Egypt, Iraq and Afghanistan (among others) is slipping away, despite any amount of weapons and brutality
we dish out either directly or by proxy. We are involved in too many wars and spread too thin.
There was another country like this once upon a time... Hitler's Germany. He bit off too much to chew too.
