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.

What about the risk of a accident during one of these sessions. Who is liable if a chopper fails mechanically and goes down in a suburban neighborhood? Do those planning these operations take into consideration all the possibilities in the event of a major screw up on their part?
Yes, but the 0bama ghetto gangbangers travel in packs, selecting individual defenseless victims (more points if they're white & elderly) to terrorize with guns & physical assults. Once determined whites start firing back at them in earnest, they will scatter like rats & vermin. Gangbangers & socialist lefties are never used to anyone fighting back, and when it happens, the gangbangers & lefties will lose!
A lot of vulnables live in that area.
Can’t even buy 22 ammo where I live. There were a few
birdshot 12 gauge but nothing else. Those birdshot loads can be easily turned into slugs by waxing them. Look on youtube to see how easy they are converted. Waxers, or Wax shot 12 gauge.
German snipers used 22 rifles as sniper weapons, did we make fun of them? The UZI also used 22 lR ammo.
I posted a vanity this evening about the subject.
A relative who regularly uses Facebook noted the large number of comments concerning the coordinated training excercises for Martial Law by LEOs and Homeland Security.
I noticed the events in Miami, and now Houston. It all looks peculiar, especially the timing.
I remember a few years ago when black helicopters hovered over a Dairy Ashford high school here in Houston.
As long as you re happy believing that. They will kill us joyfully when they remember their employer knows where THEIR family lives.
The most brutal and bloody wars in Rome were between fellow Romans. After the Social War, and then the Civil war between Caesar and Pompey, Rome had a civil war so often it became expected.
It was very common for a legion to attack a fellow legion that it had fought side by side with a short time before. There are records of father and son fighting each other on the field.
They followed orders. That is what soldiers do. Expecting that the US military will not kill US citizens is foolish. They have a long history of following orders. Look at the attack on the Bonus army, crowd control with machine guns (Gatling) during the Civil War, and Katrina of you don’t believe me.
“Makes perfect sense to do it in cities.”
So if your opposition lives in small villages, you’ll want to train around skyscrapers, giant warehouses and five-story office complexes.
BTW, welcome to FR.
I doubt you’ll get an answer.
Technical point. Iran is Shiite. MB is Sunni. They hate each other’s guts. MB would be thrilled with anybody attacking Iran.
Iran is backing Shiite Assad in Syria, whose 10% minority tribe rules over the 90% rest of Sunni Syria. The rebels are backed by MB, who want to overthrow Assad and make Syria Sunni controlled.
However, back in the US, the radical left are terrified of war, ever, for any reason, and would natter incessantly on Obama if there is even a suggestion the US might attack Iran, or even more so if the US is planning a ground invasion.
And they wouldn’t believe Obama saying he wasn’t planning to attack Iran, any more than we would believe him for just about anything. So natter, natter, natter, until he stopped the military field exercises in the US.
Wouldn’t the Posse Comitatus Act prohibit the Federal Government from coming into Texas with guns unless Governor Perry asked them to?
When you have a bastard ruling through executive orders, a cowardly Congress run by republicants, and a media eager to spread the propaganda fed to them by the ruling sonofabitch, little restrictions like PCA mean nothing. We The People have been usurped. We are no longer the sovereigns of a Constitutional Republic. Don’t expect the pirate Roberts sitting atop the stinking outhouse called the supreme court to reign in the one he was placed to protect.
Posse Comitatus Act - Definition
This article is about a United States statute prohibiting the use of the armed forces for law enforcement. For the sheriff's powers of law enforcement at common law, see posse comitatus. For the terrorist organization, see The Posse Comitatus.
The Posse Comitatus Act is a federal law of the United States (18 USC 1385) passed in 1878, after the end of Reconstruction, and was intended to prohibit Federal troops from supervising elections in former Confederate states. It generally prohibits Federal military personnel and units of the United States National Guard under Federal authority from acting in a law enforcement capacity within the United States, except where expressly authorized by the Constitution or Congress. The original act only referred to the Army, but the Air Force was added in 1956 and the Navy and Marine Corps have been included by a regulation of the Department of Defense. This law is mentioned whenever it appears that the Department of Defense is interfering in domestic disturbances.
There are a number of exceptions to the act. These include:
National Guard units while under the authority of the governor of a state;
Troops when used pursuant to the Federal authority to quell domestic violence as was the case during the Rodney King riots;
The President of the United States can waive this law in an emergency;
In December 1981 additional laws were enacted (codified 10 USC 371-78) clarifying permissible military assistance to civilian law enforcement agenciesincluding the Coast Guardespecially in combating drug smuggling into the United States. Posse Comitatus clarifications emphasize supportive and technical assistance (e.g., use of facilities, vessels, aircraft, intelligence, tech aid, surveillance) while generally prohibiting direct participation of DoD personnel in law enforcement (e.g., search, seizure, and arrests). For example, Coast Guard Law Enforcement Detachments (LEDETS) serve aboard Navy vessels and perform the actual boardings of interdicted suspect drug smuggling vessels and, if needed, arrest their crews.
The relevant legislation is as follows:
Sec. 1385. - Use of Army and Air Force as posse comitatus
Whoever, except in cases and under circumstances expressly authorized by the Constitution or Act of Congress, willfully uses any part of the Army or the Air Force as a posse comitatus or otherwise to execute the laws shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than two years, or both.
