What is DHS/ICE preparing for with this type of "Law Enforcement" vehicle?
DHS, ordered 2,717 International® MaxxPro® Mine Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles in January... So? What "hot" area in the US do they think they will be fighting in that they need a Mine-Resistant, Ambush-Protected vehicle??? or are those and the gun ports just to protect you and make you feel safer???
Is there a war stateside that I am unaware of?
Honestly, what is the reason for having this type of vehicle on American streets?
Does this go with the 450 million rounds of .40 caliber ammo they just ordered too?
(That's ultra high performance optimum penetration for terminal performance rounds from Defense contractors ATK)
and since they are doing this under the auspices of ICE- how about those detention facilities?
Certainly there are so many of those facilities in each state, far many more than are needed for illegal immigrants, don'tcha think?
"The Communist Department of Homeland Insecurity, are NOT honorable and good Law Enforcement Officers. They are NOT patrolling communities, keeping them safe, and protecting American citizens. They ARE Secret State Police, and they will infringe on your rights. There is nothing honorable in what they are doing. Training for martial law. Not only will they hurt American citizens, they will hurt our military and law enforcement personnel. They are enemies of the Republic... " - Comment on Facebook
Should we connect these dots?
Perhaps the people showcasing these vehicles understand that they are making citizens feel threatened which results in citizens arming themselves against possible harm from the government... So one might even assume that DHS is deliberately sowing the seeds of revolution.... think about it. Civilian gun sales have never been higher... just sayin'.
And of course everyone is now a possible terrorist and assumed guilty until they can prove themselves innocent.
I'm sure you feel safer already.
Or shall we just talk about whether Michelle Obama worked more or less than Ann Romney? (Next the pundits will be discussing their fashion sense which of course is of national concern)
