Whirl,

okay, back.. i’m down one thumb – burned the crap out of my right thumb on my trip to the store… don’t ask. i got an icebag and burn gel on it right now, so i’m a left handed gun for the time being…

to continue…

3. What big cities grtm the MRAPs and such, there is a reason beyond the cool factor, it goes back to the North Hollywood shootout and the sheer number of bank robberies that happen. Some places they are almost normal getting little fanfare in the news, and nobody wants to repeat what happened there in any way. So instead of spending hundreds of thousands on an armored vehicle or refurbishing an old brinks truck, that free MRAP is a cheap solution.

Does every department need one? Of course not. But some places? Maybe.

look, i watched the north hollywood shootout go down… granted, on tv like almost everyone else, but that could have been handled differently… we trained with the precision rifle to hit some very small targets under some pretty diverse conditions. The true rifle has a place in the in the peace officer’s inventory – always has. one properly trained specialist could have ended that nonsense with a minimum of fuss. zap. the end.

what i don’t buy is the rationale for owning a tank. even an mrap. ‘hostage rescue’? yeah, right. you really think we’re stupid enough to buy that bullshit? i’ve seen one of those dhs jet black mraps up close… ablative armor, bullet resistant glass, gun ports, run flats… had ‘emergency response vehicle’ painted on the side… yeah, you ain’t foolin anybody… the dirtville sheriffs office has no need for an mrap. neither does the dirtville pd. it is the increased militarization of the police – they are being turned into what the framers feared most. a standing army. you give police the same equipment as an army, train them like the army, populate their ranks with ex-military, and pretty soon they begin to think they are a military… and this is exactly what we are seeing..

also, i believe that it is dhs pre-positioning assets. if .. sorry, when things go to ****, you think the roads will be clear enough to deploy assets anywhere? doubtful.. only way to deploy assets would be via air. either c-17 or chinook. easier to pre-position assets now under the guise of ‘free ****’ to the various agencies around the us, while you got time…

as far as the nuevo laredo gunfight, if we patrolled the border properly and actually enforced our own stinkin laws, we wouldn’t have to use it to justify up-arming the various pd’s… the border should be locked down and patrolled by the military – that would not violate the posse comitatus act. but a good argument could be made that the powers that be are allowing criminal cartels and other slime to cross the border and become entrenched on purpose so they can use that as justification to militarize the police… standard ‘problem,reaction,solution’ loop… create the problem, engineer the reaction and have your solution all ready to go… textbook false flag…

and now, my left hand is plum wore out and dinner is ready…

bbl…
