Original: Following a rise in violent crime in Paragould, an Arkansas town of around 26,000 residents, the mayor and police chief announced that starting this month police in SWAT gear carrying AR-15s would patrol the streets.

Updated, Jan. 30: According to local news reports, the police department canceled two subsequent town hall meetings to discuss the heavy handed policing plan.

“If you’re out walking, we’re going to stop you, ask why you’re out walking, and check for your ID,” police chief Todd Stovall told a December town hall meeting. As if to render the implementation of a visible police state more palatable, Stovall assured residents that police stops would not be based on any profiling: “We’re going to do it to everybody,” he said.


I'm not in that area but friends of mine in that area say the police are everywhere.

Paragould currently has 41 sworn in officers and 10 civilian officers, totaling 51. The Paragould Police Department has 16 patrol units with laptop computers that are linked to the Arkansas Crime and Information Center data base and the local system kept by the Police Department.


Not a lot but its precedent. If they do it then others will too.

Always drive your car or ride a bike.


Is their motto 'Don't walk in your town'.

I don't know much about this town of 26,000 people. If they have a huge crime problem it really could be time to have a visible police presence. But asking for ID for walking about? That is a clear violation of the Constitution, Downright Nazi like. You have no business asking me for "My Papers" without probable cause.

In this broadcast of the Cybertribe News Network, a North Carolina Police Lieutenant calls in to give his first hand knowledge of preparations being made within his own department to train and prepare for martial law in the United States, possibly in the coming year.

there is a fine line between a visible police presence and harassing innocent people out for a walk. are we to assume that all 26,000 people in this town are criminals? maybe they should just put a fence around the town and call it a.......... oh, wait.

I guess they followed through on what they had planned after all.
This was discussed in this thread www.abovetopsecret.com...
by MidnightTide right before Christmas.

So, I guess we can expect a thirty day time frame from when we hear about the plans until they go live?

"Experiment" maybe????
Testing the waters so to speak, to see how it goes over with the people......

[small town first]

Which, thankfully, they let it be known that they don't like it.
