Whats that old Doors song, Five to one.
One in five! No one here gets out alive NOW! You get yours baby, I'll get mine. Gonna make it baby if we try...
Love me The Doors. RIP Jimmy boy.
But to the topic at hand. This is of course very disturbing news and I agree with every poster who says this type of drill is only meant to do one
thing and that's to desensitized the public. The writing is on the wall and this criminal tyrannical Gov't is clearly up to no good and they are also
pushing their agendas faster and faster. With the recent push for increase gun control laws, possible gun confiscation, I could see why this criminal
Gov't would want our military being their errand boys/goon squad.
Storms a brewin...
I did some searching and found an article by the news outlet who we saw report on this in the OP. According to them we have nothing to worry about
because these boys are only testing out their equipment to make sure it works
Totally makes sense the police would be apart of these drills just to make sure the military's equipment works
Military conducts training exercises in Miami
MIAMI (WSVN) -- This is only a drill.
Black Hawk choppers soared into the skies in downtown Miami, Wednesday night. The joint military training exercise also involved local police.
In the shadow of the Adrienne Arsht Center, several police cruisers crossed Biscayne Boulevard, presumably as part of the drill. Police have blocked
off traffic on Biscayne Boulevard, although this measure might be related to the Miami Heat game about to finish at the American Airlines Arena.
The exercises, which began Tuesday night, are being executed to meet requirements, which include upcoming overseas missions and ensuring their
equipment is in good working order.
Miami residents up on the balconies overlooking downtown Miami have been making amateur videos and posting them on YouTube. Tuesday night one of these
videos showed the military helicopters flying over 395, right by the Miami Herald Building.
The amateur footage, shot by Atlanta resident Josh Epperson, also captured the sound of blank rounds being fired. In town for work, Epperson admitted
he had no idea what was happening when he filmed the footage. "I heard the machine gun fire and then I hit the deck," he said. "I didn't know what to
expect, and it was one of the loudest things I'd ever heard."
Additional training exercises have been taking place across Miami-Dade County. Police have been vague about specific locations and how long the drills
will continue. They say public safety is their top priority, which is why the exercises are being held at night.
Remember, if you see news happening and can do so safely, take a picture or shoot video and send it to: firstname.lastname@example.org.

I found another article from CBS local. I guess this came out before the training....
Military Helicopters To Buzz Over Area For Training Exercise
MIAMI-DADE (CBSMiami) – There’s no need to worry about those military helicopters buzzing through your neighborhood. It’s probably a
military training exercise.
Oh phewwww... no need to worry guys.
Miami-Dade police sent out a warning Monday that multiple police agencies would be providing support for a joint military training exercise
somewhere over Miami and elsewhere in the county. The exercise will include the use of military helicopters, CBS4 news partner The Miami Herald
When and where will this happen? Police didn’t say.
The police statement said the training locations and times “were carefully selected to minimize negatively impacting the citizens of the City of
Miami/Miami-Dade County and their daily routines.
But it also acknowledged that there would be some impact on residents.”
Ohhhh so shooting blanks from .50 cals from gunships is all good and would in no way negatively impact citizens but there would be some impact on
residents. Gotcha. Please go on..
“This is routine training conducted by military personnel designed to ensure the military’s ability to operate in urban environments,
prepare forces for upcoming overseas deployments, and meet mandatory training certification requirement,” the police statement said.
This isn’t the first time such training has been done in Miami. In April 2011, military helicopters buzzed through Brickell, leading to sleepless
nights for some people and a lot of griping on social media about it.
Again, no need to worry guys, its totally routine! The last time it apparently happened was almost a year ago. Totally routine and totally needed to
totally test out their awesome equipment.
Yeah I'm totally this stupid.
