What are the MiliPolice Planning On Doing With These Heavily Armored Vehicles?
SHTF Plan ^ | 9/12/12 | Mac Slavo

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 isn’t 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.

I wanna know why we, the taxpayers, paid for a fancy chrome stepside step on a vehicle that doesn't have doors over the step.

DHS had a new building erected at the VA Hospital grounds in Martinsburg, WV. It is guarded and gated, but isn't being used for anything that I can see. There are normally only a few vehicles present at any time.

My mind is probably in need of some foil, but I think these were built as "containment facilities" for Vets. JMHO...

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.

About two months ago I was gassing up near local airport. In front of me was a black shiny SUV, the biggest one with black glass. As I walked by it I noticed that it was caged from the back of the front seat all the way to the back. I walked by it several times It was fenced all the way around behind the windows and doors. No insignia anywhere on the vechile and no government plate. Man in windbreaker dressed in a non-descript manner was gassing it up.

It gave me pause. I kept on trying to think what the purpose was for the vechile.

Combine the trucks with this:

http://www.infowars.com/after-huge-ammo-buy-dhs-purchases-bullet-resistant-booths

“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.

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.

That seem very specific to me. I assume the picture of the same vehicle with the same lettering and markings on the DHS own home page is photo shopped as well?

Considering the drug war going on at the border, especially when the Zetas and MS13 is involved, that doesn’t look armored enough.

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.

Hungarians used EMPTY pie tins in the middle of the road to scare the Soviet tank crews, and slow them down.

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.

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

Interesting vid - at 1:49 you can tell that it uses air brakes - it basically has to have them due to the weight of the vehicle. Damage and/or destroy any of those cylinders you have a mobility kill. Sitting duck for a "can opener". Nice ride for use against feckless criminals, not so good for a real SHTF engagement.
