HOUSTON (KTRK) -- SkyEye 13 HD was over the south side where at first look, it appears there's a massive SWAT scene happening.
People have been calling police, as well as our newsroom, saying they're hearing gunshots in the area of Scott and Airport. It turns out, the Army says, it's a multi-agency training drill. They're doing it at the old Carnegie High School.

Even Yamamoto said that there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.
Yamamoto wasn't a self-deluded fool who was given everything he had.
Driving a wedge between the Military and the Constitutionalists?
And about that litmus test rumor: “Are you willing to fire upon US citizens” ...
And the next question is will the citizen fire back? 1861 to 1865 answers that.
Personally, I think the American soldier will frag the officer who orders him to shoot on the American Citizen.
Well organized, determined Romans routinely crushed enemies who outnumbered them. Your imaginary 100 million Americans are not organized and the number is highly inflated.
Napoleon used the formula that 1/3 were with him, 1/3 against him, and 1/3 simply didn't care. So yes that gives you a 100 million. But, there is that pesky 100 million who are against you. That and a professional army is a big obstacle.
Maybe in Massachusetts, but come down here to the South & Southwest and I imagine you’ll think differently, especially Texas. The Romans were very well drilled and trained, and yes, we have people like that in our present day military, but I don’t see very many of them fighting their neighbors. The Roman legions mostly fought outlanders or slave rebellions, towards whom they had little or no empathy. And if it is so easy to quash a revolt or rebellion, please explain Iraq, the IRA, Afghanistan, Vietnam, the Moros, Chechnia, etc., etc...
Insurgent warfare hasn’t worked out real well for the U.S. military over the last 50 years.
Look what a few Taliban are doing to humble the modern American and NATO forces. 100 million of us are disorganized now, but they know their native terrain better than the military and will lie in ambush to easily put them down. Caesar had to import Germans to fight against Romans, because Roman Soldiers would not do that. The American Soldier will frag the officers who order them to kill Americans.
Those pesky 100 million are supposedly not gun-owners. What are they going to do, build spears, bows and arrows and zip guns?
Watched the full 12+ minutes.
It included multiple gov vehicles apparently from different unidentified agencies.
At least two USArmy helos, which land on the school's field at 5:30 on the tape then upload troops who take off hanging out of the sides of the helicopters, in full view while flying low over surrounding homes of a neighborhood.
A Ryder truck parked in front of a school exit/entrance at 8:25. Which then drives away.
Multiple firearms lined up on a walkway at 10:01 where people appear to be hanging out? (one guy even dances for the camera. o.k....because this is sooo funny/S!).
On the early morning news, Channel 5 out of Nashville announced that soldiers from Ft. Campbell would be doing this over parts of Nashville tonight and the next couple of nights. They said they were giving the warning so residents wouldn’t freak out.
Haven’t heard a peep out of any of the Nashville stations tonight. I guess they were told to stay away.
we learned right from the gitgo that a photo-op for Air Force One by the Statue of Liberty was more important than scaring the bejeezus out of Manhattan
Conservatives love to laugh at Massachsuetts and figure it’s a lost cause.
Over this last weekend there was a gun show in the Boston suburbs, and the line to get in the first morning was 200 yards long.
That’s no exaggeration, but a firm figure.
Is anyone worried? Gee, the military leaders Obama dumped haven’t even had a chance to clean their desks out before firing drills on American people. I can not imagine what people thought watching this happening at a school, they had to be mortified after Sandy Hook.
It’s more training for when they make the final push to throw out the constitution. Makes perfect sense to do it in cities. The Commies in the big cities will simply accept what they are told about it and move on. Conservative areas would be in uproar, well unless Republicans dominated government and said it was training for the war on terror.
Besides Harris county (Houston) went to Obama by something like only 2 votes, not really a Commie stronghold.
You are sadly ignorant of how the Obama ghetto follower is armed. He is armed with unregistered semiautomatic firearms. That goes for the illegal immigrant crowd also. When is the last time you read they used stone-age weapons?
Exactly. BHO2 is trying to gin up an unplanned response by Patriots to his multiople activities.
Facebook has a lot of LEOs commenting on the Martial Law training that they’re conducting along with Homeland Security.
Most of them have sites on the side of the slide.
Won’t matter, regardless, and most of that 100 million aren’t armed ghetto rats but hippies with 22 LRs cause it makes them feel manly.
