Skip to comments.Army drill scares residents on Houston's south side

HOUSTON (KTRK) -- The sight of Army helicopters and the sound of gunfire created a lot of concern Monday afternoon in one Houston neighborhood.
We received a lot of phones calls, Tweets and Facebook posts from worried neighbors, wondering what was going on.
SkyEye 13 HD was over the south side where at first look, it appeared there was a massive SWAT scene happening.
With military helicopters flying above her southeast Houston neighborhood, Frances Jerrals didn't know what to think.
"When you see this, you think the worst. When you hear this, you think the worst," Jerrals said.
And so, she passed along her concern.

For what good reason they may do it?
A show of strength to pre-terrify urban inhabitants. It makes confiscation and purges so much easier.
Hmmm.... Makes you wonder: why so close to a large population center? The military usually wants to practice in areas well away from prying eyes and ears (Area 51?). What could be so interesting in SE Houston for them to use that area? I wonder if any of the grunts participating in the “drills” wondered the same thing? Just getting us ready for Martial Law, I guess.
I'll bet that numb-nut will be one of the first ones led into the re-education "camp" they set up, smiling all the way: "It's for the children!"
Maybe Gov Perry or AG Gregg Abbott can find out.
This is how they do it in Syria.
I am NOT liking this. Bad omens.
agree but I don’t think it will make confiscation earier, perhaps even harder...
Yea, a bit chilling. Miami, Houston. I read elsewhere that Nashville is on the schedule for this type of exercise, I believe on Thursday of this week.
I would hope that someone inside this administration would have enough of a conscience to tell us what the Marxist truly has planned.
Apparently Martial Law.
Gonna need it when the EBTs don't get refilled, and he blames whitey.
I can see the arch over the camps now.
It won’t read “Arbeit Macht Frei”.
It will read “Es ist fur die Kinder.”
They are extremely lucky that someone that was a little jumpy didnt decide to start firing live rounds back at them.
Sooner or later, if they keep holding these unannounced drills, in highly populated areas, while firing blanks. Someone is going to get real confused and open return fire with real bullets.
.. Or, maybe, thats the idea .
Recap-----Homeland Security purchases 1.2 billion rounds of 9 mm caliber ammunition.
------Homeland security states the biggest terrorist threat comes from southern militia-types.
-------Recent reports of Obama asking officers in the military if they would/or would not fire on Americans, if ordered.
-----Now this-lowflying, simulated firefights in heavily populated urban centers with military/law enforment.
Taken alone, perhaps no one of these is determitive. But all of them? Together? What the hell is going on in this country now?
It also makes distraction of what this administration and those connected so much easier. Kind of like that Jodie girl who murdered her boyfriend changes outfits 2 or 3 times daily. That is an old lawyer trick example a lawyer who wears a plaid jacket, bow tie or weird hair. It’s done to distract so all you will not be paying attention to anything but the object of the distraction. If the jury at the Casey Anthony trial had been using common sense and paying more attention instead of the lies her lawyer was spinning and the circus he created; she might not have gone free.
Sand, can you confirm the Nashville exercise? If you have a link, I’d be grateful.
Beck had this covered back in July when they were doing training in St. Louis. An excerpt - but much more info. at the link.
In the segment, Beck notes that The Blaze TV staff contacted former army Lieutenant General Jerry Boykin to see just how routine this sort of training was. Lt. Gen. Boykin said it was bizarre and that, generally, trainings conducted in cities kept a low profile and didnt interrupt daily activities.
Good points, but I think you left out the most alarming fact.
-——Disarming the American citizens and a national registry of gun-owners.
Also, the majority of the ammo was .40 caliber Hollow-Point, not 9mm.
.40 cal. is the most popular caliber used by police agencies and is designed for one purpose only...to produce maximum damage to the human body.
Q: “What the hell is going on in this country now?”
A: We are funding our own demise.
Any of these exercises happen up North, or are planned for that region?
Or just here in the South and planned for here?
All the others in your list are double or more sourced except this one:
“———Recent reports of Obama asking officers in the military if they would/or would not fire on Americans,if ordered.”
But I do agree, even taking the items aside from this one, all togetber makes for some disturbing omens.
When has this happened before, in which administrations have they done this?
Port, airport, and rail services all conveniently located to bring in equipment and people. Great margaritas during off time. It’s actually in the 70s here if you feel like going to the beaches and watching medical waste wash up in nearby Galveston. Large chunks of land no one gives a d@^^|\| about.
The do this kinda-sorta regularly. I have a business of the far north side. I sometimes see the equipment pass through the local switching yard in Spring. Someone usually takes them burgers from the Track Shack since the men detailed to watch it can’t leave their posts while it’s stopped at the rail yard.
My reaction when I saw and heard some of this wasn’t “INSTILL TERROR BEFORE THE DESCENT OF MARTIAL LAW!” it was “Oh. February must be upon us.”
That is basiclly what it is for. A show of force by the DHS Stoorm Troopers. You notice it wasn’t done in Washington, or New York which are prime terroist targets.
This is outrageous. I read the article clip and there isn’t any information as to why this was done. Can you imagine how frightened the people were? They had no idea what was going on... was there some sort of terrorist attack, were they being attacked? Those thoughts had to be going through their minds.
Not for terrorists. Secessionists.
Preconditioning. You must establish the proper public state of uneasiness before initiating the crisis that will allow you to impliment your real goals.
If Ayn Rand was a visionary then Yuri Bezmenov was a prophet.
I fear that freedom is just an illusion now.
They’re “re-positioning”/ moving containers of ammo around:
True enough. Herding suburban families into cattle cars takes planning and teamwork.
I’m going to email some friends who are still in the national guard and see if they have any onfo. If they do, I’ll post it in a reply later.

I wonder what would happen if/when someone fires back?
It’s time we play the game of not letting a crisis go to waste. Pass the word; this was an ICE training exercise to implement the purge element of the immigration reform deal being brokered.
Absolutely shameful behavior.
Hello out there! Do we have any Governors or representatives left to stand up anymore?
Hello, Hello? Cowards? anyone?
What city is next? They’re staying where its warm so far. Maybe it’s time for FEMA to get some winter training.
Here is a youtube of the event.
Near the end you can see a large group of people getting together for a debrief. None of them are wearing military uniforms so I’m assuming they are DHS etc. You can see dozens of nice guns on the porch near them.
I’m amazed it hasn’t happened, yet. When it does, the “gloves” come off. “Whose gloves”, is the question.
And a second after you enter, "Essen deine Erbsen"
And a second after you enter, "Essen deine Erbsen"
While outside the gates, we shall hear the chant, "Wo ist meine freie Scheisse?""
It won't be the citizens. We'll just have to see which numbered jersey on the opposing team makes the illegal hit...
The interment camps around Amerika are open and ready for business. These troops will do what they are ordered to do. Or run the risk of going to jail themselves for refusing obey orders. They have been trained to take orders. If told to round people up, they will round people up. It is coming folks. Those not believing this are simply not thinking clearly. This stuff will happen here. This is how it started in other countries, by the same type of so called leaders.
Yes, there are barbed wire fenced "FEMA" areas. I have seen the films.
I have seen the local barbed wire compounds.
Well they had tanks in the streets in St Louis in Sept. They are are not practicing for foreign conflicts. Bad joo joo this way comes.
What was Michael's take on the covert Houston operation? Thanks.
“Herding suburban families into cattle cars takes planning and teamwork.”
Once tyranny has overthrown a legitimate government it will need skilled workers to supply the state and most of those live in the suburbs. The two groups who need to fear the cattlecars are the useless eaters once their votes are no longer needed and the disillusioned intellectuals once they find out the workers’ paradise they dreamed of is not what they got.
