Posted on 09/12/2012 2:49:55 PM PDT by Kartographer
With a massive biometric FBI surveillance system going live across the United States in recent weeks, tens of thousands of drones to be flying over American skies within just a few years, over 1 billion rounds of ammunition being acquired by non-military government agencies, and host of laws and executive orders outlining military and police emergency response plans to lock down the United States, it isnt much of a stretch to suggest that our government is preparing for something that aims to fundamentally transform America as we know it today.
New evidence for a coming lock-down of America is presented to the public by citizen journalists and alternative media on an almost weekly basis, which suggests that whatever is being planned is on a much more accelerated schedule now than ever before.

Those things could get really bad if terrorists tossed bottles of bleach and ammonia at them.
Honestly I’m a little suspicious about that photo. Something about the lettering doesn’t seem kosher to me.
Call it spidey sense.
My mind is probably in need of some foil, but I think these were built as "containment facilities" for Vets. JMHO...
The mission of Citizen Corps is to harness the power of every individual through education, training, and volunteer service to make communities safer, stronger, and better prepared to respond to the threats of terrorism, crime, public health issues, and disasters of all kinds. ...-citizen corps.gov
It looks to me like an inexperienced phtoshopper ran into some pretty common problems.
Where it says POLICE/RESCUE its off center like the font had been typed then warped to fit the vehicle but didn’t so they nudged it forward a bit and then cut the notch in it.
It also seems to me that there are an excessive number of names on it. Police, immigration and customs, at the left it looks like it might say “investigations and National security.
The primary purpose of the vehicle is as a movable shield, men can pile onto it, stand and fire from it, ride on it when internal capacity is exceeded. I wouldn't think to not include the step.
The step is for folks to ride on, I would suppose when they would use the vehicle for cover on one side or the other.
Archimedes had the solution about 2300 yrs ago - mirrors and sunlight.
It gave me pause. I kept on trying to think what the purpose was for the vechile.
Searched for ICE pictures. You can download the large copy.
I don’t know how to insert the photo.
When is Government Motors going to make the civilian version? I want one to tow my travel trailer.
Let’s see if you man up?
Combine the trucks with this:
“After Huge Ammo Buy, DHS Purchases Bullet Resistant Booths
Federal agency preparing to unveil more checkpoints... The purpose behind the bullet proof booths is unknown, but the DHS has publicly announced that it plans to increase the number of unannounced checkpoints manned by TSA VIPR teams and other federal agents beyond the 9300 that were set up last year alone.
The DHS Federal Protective Service stoked controversy in January when it set up a checkpoint and posted agents armed with semiautomatic guns outside a Social Security office in Florida.
The armed agents checked identifications of locals as part of Operation Shield, an unannounced drill centered around detecting the presence of unauthorized persons and potentially disruptive or dangerous activities.
If anything its more effective to drag them around and have panicky people post photos of them as a means of intimidating folks. In fact they kind of remind me of the show cop cars that police departments have. Things like Corvettes and Vipers etc.
After all, a quick look at a map shows the tactical impossibility of controlling this country. They simply don’t have the personnel to control more than a couple of cities. We have a cop car roll though this little town about once a week and the only reason they do that is because we pay them to do it.

Funny how this went from a photoshop hoax to a DHS Show Vehicle.
I never said it wasn’t a photoshop or otherwise. I just said the photo looked suspicious to me and it still does.
For me the amazement is how can ordinary USA citizens ever think of going against their next door neighbors after their children play ball on the same team as a possible situation. I realize that police and sheriff and other groups stretch that societal boundary but for masses of citizens to want to act/be a part of such reactionary forces is bewildering. I know it has happened all over the world over the centuries but the matter still bugs me. And this is not to say I couldn’t/wouldn’t choose sides.
Nut-job Conspiracy Theory Ping!

What’s SAC/TA under the flag?
Considering the drug war going on at the border, especially when the Zetas and MS13 is involved, that doesn’t look armored enough.
SOuthern Area Command/ Tucson Arizona? Hell, I dunno
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
That doesn't look armored enough against a provencial boy with a trebouchet and a few carboys full of gasoline. Or punkin chunkers from upstate NY... It's a joke.
Embellished defenses, ie.. chain mail to plate to heavy articulated plate... or mont and bailey to castle to fortification.... are clues that an era is coming to an end.
Afghans with files and dud bombs are blowing up upgraded armor Humvees. It's not rocket science.
We need visibility in order to maneuver our vehicles, don’t we? A light coat of oil from a bug sprayer and a balloon full of flour will bring it to a halt. A few cans of spray paint will work even better.
Only use the bleach and ammonia bottles if there is shooting going on.
Armored vehicles aren't working that great in the 3rd world, circa 1850s technology, they certainly aren't going to work in the first world with folks that make that kind of stuff for a living.
Technically, no... I've done driving by braille before. If you don't like the way I drive, get off the sidewalk. ;)
More legit would be, what can people who believe in their Constitution do against those that don’t.
“We’d tell you, but then we’d have to kill you”.
Geez, looks like that DHS vehicle is beefed up. Where they going, Belleau Wood? Inchon? Da Nang? Fallujah?. B-) I don’t like law enforcement starting to become military, it is so above the people. Makes me wish I had a WWII Sherman Jumbo or at least an M5 Stuart tank parked in my driveway. B-P
