I hate to ask....but why this summer? What gives you this impression? I am not in front of the laptop as much as most here; therefore I know of only a couple of drills that I noticed on youtube. One is Austin and I can't remember where the other was. I was surprised to find that none of the local authorities were informed.
Another site that interested me - on a "cop" type reality show I noticed DHS patrolling the "convention police" in Vegas. Treating the local patrols like hall monitors and DHS being the adult version of Scared Straight.
Americans are in need of vacay according to statistics; we work too much! A forced vacay, xtreme camping style?
I asked if there was a timeline for expecting civil unrest in our cities and why should we expect it to begin with. I was told that there were many reasons, but that the continued devaluation of our currency, the predicted history-setting prices for gasoline this summer and the continued gun control debate are forming a perfect storm of civil discontent. When this storm hits, it will most assuredly produce mass casualties. When does DHS expect this to happen? This summer.
This was one of many joint military-local law enforcement exercises that had come to my attention in less than one month. Held in cities across the U.S., they were becoming more common and more intense. But why? Why train in populated towns and cities where accidents could produce unnecessary casualties?
At no time during my time there were “realistic urban training” exercises conducted in towns and cities. This is a recent development.
Law Enforcement Targets, Inc. is providing DHS and law enforcement departments all across the U.S. with targets ”designed to give officers the experience of dealing with deadly force shooting scenarios with subjects that are not the norm during training.” These targets are called “No More Hesitation” targets. According to their website, “No More Hesitation faded background enhances the isolation and is meant to help the transition for officers who are faced with these highly unusal (sic) targets for the first time.” The targets include “pregnant woman threat,” “older man with shotgun,” “older man in home with shotgun,” “older woman with gun,” “young school aged girl,” “young mother on playground,” and “little boy with real gun.”
It seems DHS and local law enforcement is gearing up in many ways. Non-military agencies have purchased over 2 billion rounds of ammunition this year. To put that in perspective, U.S. troops were firing around 5.5 million rounds per month during the Iraqi war. At that rate, DHS is now supplied for a 24-year Iraq war. But DHS is an internal agency. And those rounds are spread out over multiple, internal, agencies.
