"Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim tribute to patriotism who should labor to subvert these great pillars of human happiness -- these firmest props of the duties of men and citizens. . . . reason and experience both forbid us to expect that national morality can prevail in exclusion of religious principles."

Ya have to wonder where all those "Oathkeepers" and "3 Percenters" and "Sheep Dogs" are.
Why?  Well, because I'm a bastard, that's why.

Why the fuss over a perfectly normal occurrence? Cross training happens all the time.

It is more likely for the benefit of the special forces than the police.

Maybe so.  But with Ali Bama in office it could be training for martial law, too. :smokin:

Nah - not with SF and sheriffs. Too much of a chance for push-back. Now if you see Obama's civilian army running exercises, it's time to build a bunker or head for the hills.

In terms of training for Martial Law though - it's a standard part of Army and National Guard training. They are frequently the first ones into a disaster area and need to know police procedures and have experience of actual policing. Two different skill sets which are, sadly, mostly mutually exclusive.

When does the Republican Party, put in the majority by the Tea Party, plan to honor its commitment to halt the growth of the Federal monolith and bring the budget back into balance"?

Don't forget we have the DHS "police" which officially don't exist even if their vehicles say police.  There is this cross training.  DHS has been distributing light armor to certain police agencies.  Obama's civilian army, which he said would be as big as the military is something the media just doesn't talk about though they are known to be training people.  All in all the direction doesn't look good.

I was arrested a couple of days ago, for sitting in my car in a parking lot. Can't really figure out how the cops showed up. Don't know if someone called them or if the guy just came over on his own.
 
When I asked why he was doing this he said, "Someone said you were taking pictures." I had no phone or camera with me at the time. I am still without a clue how 'taking pictures' would be illegal enough for the cops to show up even if I was doing it. When he ran my license, he said I had a warrant for a speeding ticket from 2 years ago for doing 30 in a 20. This is a ticket that was dismissed at the time, but somehow, very recently, got revived somehow. I just renewed my license and plates less than a year ago, so either this warrant was issued never, or it was issued on the spot.
 
During the booking process, they wanted to know every tiny detail about my life. Aside from the standard questions, there were question like, 'Where do you work?', 'How much money do you make?' It was weird. How does that have anything to do with 'taking pictures' or a dismissed outdated speeding ticket. I later learned from some teenagers that 'taking pictures' is a common standard thing cops say when they want to harrass someone who isn't really doing anything.
 
Anyway, they definitely put me 'on the grid', as they say. Spent the night in jail, for nothing, saw the judge and the judge said, "This may be a mistake. All requirements for dismissal have been met." That is what he wrote. But I still have to go to court to full dismissal and no matter what they say, this will cost me money, and of course that is the whole point.
 
Just like in Chicago, I can hear the judge saying, "Hey, you know, you slip me $500 and foe-getabooutit, it will be like it never happened."
 
It has nothing to do with 'public safety' or the 'law'. It is always all about the money, and getting everyone registered with the police and 'on the grid'. They got me this time, but what happens when it goes to the next level. Then we are all in trouble.
 
If everything and nothing is deemed 'illegal', then we are all criminals. The judge says, "The 'Law' is whatever I say it is."
 
You know that famous saying, "If you're not doing anything wrong, you have nothing to worry about." Well, that is bullshit. You do have something to worry about. We all do. I do not think this is over for me. I'm not sure it can be. I no longer have any faith in 'law' or any judge.
 
Looking forward to meeting all of you in the reeducation camp.
You cannot "COEXIST" with people who want to kill you.

240B,

Wow that is wild. Your story inspired me to tell something that happened to me. I think I will start a new thread about it.
