Posted on 01/19/2013 6:44:27 AM PST by Travis McGee
PORTSMOUTH, Ohio (WSAZ) -- A dead science teacher, weapons of mass destruction, first responders in hazmat suits and the Ohio Army National Guard all near the Municipal Stadium in Portsmouth, Thursday. There's no cause for alarm -- this is just a drill!
The mock disaster training exercise is being done with Scioto County first responders and the Ohio Army National Guard 52nd Civil Support Unit.
"It's the reality of the world we live in," says Portsmouth Police Chief Bill Raisin. "Don't forget there is such a thing as domestic terrorism. This helps us all be prepared."
The make-believe scenario is timely. Two school employees who are disgruntled over the government's interpretation of the Second Amendment, plot to use chemical, biological and radiological agents against members of the local community.
Please let us know as soon as he replies to your message. I’m very curious about this.
You mean this ain’t sarcasm!
Hey you’d think if they hated, say, Texas so much then they’d WANT it to go away.
Anyhow isn’t Ohio billed as the sightseeing state or something like that? (I passed through it a few moons ago.) I don’t know what’s to see in Portsmouth but maybe it’s time for all red blooded old fashioned patriots (with or without yeehaws) to boycott that stupid place.
This is exactly what Hitler did against Czechoslovakia and Poland in 1938-39. This is what fascists do.
I sent him a message, too, asking about the source of the scenario design. I’m getting sick of this.
Time to take some names.
The 2010 attempted bombing just had to be the TEA Party because it was a fertilizer bomb and the TEA Party were a bunch of Tim McVeigh wanna bes. The news media told us so right before the bomb attempt so it must be true.
Truly is amazing how the left always has their talking points in place prior to a terrorist attack.
I'm sorry I forgot. The terrorist attack in Libya was “spontaneous” so that explains how the left always has their talking points in place prior to a terrorist attack.
The terrorist are so in tune with the news they can pick up on an orchestrated news story and plan an attack around that news story in just a matter of minutes.
Yea buddy the “spontaneous” lie explains it perfect.
If I didn't know better I'd say the attack in Libya was planned just to create the “spontaneous” lie to explain why the left always has their talking points in place prior to a terrorist attack.
Dear Travis, this is not a relevant article.
If you have ever been to Portsmouth, OH, you would know that they don’t need to train for a disaster. The disaster has already happened. It is probably the most drug infested place in Ohio and from the number of boarded up buildings, it looks like a neutron bomb went off (removed the living and left the buildings).
Commerce is nil. Drug addiction is rampant. The people have zero ambition or work ethic. Govt. dependence is epidemic.
This is the real story of Portsmouth. Go there sometime.
It burns me how these liberal newsies can spout stuff that they have to KNOW is fantasy and hide behind “journalistic license.” It’s not that they pick out stories of untypical things and trumpet them all over the place. (We know the adage that dog biting man is not news, while the reverse is.) Rather, they brazenly bullsh@t larger America and tell them it’s chocolate cake.
Well, since the Supreme Court ruled in the Heller decision that the Second Amendment is an individual (NOT collective) right, and the perps here are school employees (i.e. brainwashed union members and/or teachers), you could interpret this to mean it's bitter liberals, not evil right-wingers they are concerned about.
I doubt that was Big Sis' intention, though.
For Pete’s sake. There have been mock disasters for years. For hurricanes, fires, floods, tornadoes, yes, and even terrorism. Chemical leaks, providing shelter, these are all practiced for in these mock drills
Trash is being trashy? Like dogs bite men?
It’s a very wry observation about WHOM they pick out to weave their fantasy scenarios around. This is more than your run of the mill fire drill.
I’m not sure why a city of 20,000 would have a disaster drill in the first place. It is some govt. yahoos out for a play day in my opinion.
Here is the wikipedia entry for Portsmouth.
By 1950, the population had passed its peak of approximately 42,000. Foreign competition eventually caused most of the industry on which Portsmouth’s economy was based to move out of the area. A major blow came in 1980 when the steel industry suspended local operations. With a current population of approximately 20,000, the city is not far removed from many small cities along the Ohio River valley, sharing many of the same problems in an era of unskilled labor outsourcing and population migration to more urban areas with the subsequent loss of both skilled and unskilled labor.
 Prescription drug epidemic
Unintentional prescription drug deaths by county for the years 2004 to 2008
We have a very high addiction rates in addition to the death rates. A lot of young people are addicted. Our treatment facilities are overwhelmed. The court systems are overwhelmed.
-Lisa Roberts, registered nurse with the Portsmouth City Health Department
Since the late 1990s an epidemic of prescription drug abuse has swept the town and surrounding areas. It has caused a dramatic increase in Hepatitis C cases, drug related deaths, robberies, murder, and an increased incidence of children born addicted to prescription drugs. The most prevalent drug is OxyContin, a synthetic opiate originally developed as a cancer drug, known colloquially as oxys and hillbilly heroin (because of the drugs association with Appalachian areas of Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, and West Virginia). The crisis is blamed on the proliferation of cash-only pain clinics, known as “pill mills” by locals. According to authorities there are as many as eight of the clinics in Scioto County alone, the largest concentration of such operations per capita in any of Ohio’s counties.
Back in January 2013, a local police chief had preached that any supreme court has the final say about what is law, in reply to concerned citizens who had challenged his remarks disparaging the right of the people to protest against further loss of the Bill of Rights, and specifically therein, the 2nd Amendment.
The chief had posed protestors as being "disgruntled over the 2nd Amendment," and the chief had posed political charges similar to those tossed around in the nefarious "peoples court" of NAZI Germany: The protestors were posed as "domestic terrorists" to the court of public opinion and to the "mind's eye" of police and military forces in an anti-terrorist training exercise, where the chief challenged these martial forces to confront the chief's degrading and disparaging represenations of the citizens.
Today, after the public elected to the Ohio State Supreme Court, three new judges in favor of individual freedom and individual rights, and in a case brought against the chief of police, the court decided that the chief of police was in fact, the greater threat to the community and to the people of the state of Ohio.
The assertion by the chief of police, that "any supreme court has the final say," came back to be applied to *him personally.* In the court decision, the chief of police - who was a proponent of "police state security," was *decided by the court,* to be "an enemy of the state."
The chief of police was, just like that, the person of interest, and several court observers noted that he promptly became "very disgruntled about the loss of his rights" outside the court building, and he had to be restrained after making "threatening and 'terroristic' remarks" about his no longer caring about the safety and security of members of the community. His last words were, "... but I have the right to protest!"
Yeah, and they included Bitter Clinger 2nd Amd fantatics as the evil villains?
Wake up, dude. Smell the coffee.
Major Hassan jumps on a table screaming Allahu Akbar, our DHS and military call it a “workplace violence,” not an act of terrorism.
But in example after example (read the thread) “tea party terrorists” are being scapegoated.
In 1934 it was “Dirty Jews Plot to Poison Berlin Water Supply.” How did that end up?
That place sounds like such a pain! It’s obvious why they need the pain clinics (only half joking).
You know, republican John Kasich campaigned in Portsmouth.
and so did MItt Romney and two of his sons went there too on 3 separate occasions.
Obama did not dare set foot there. I guess he only cares about College campuses. As to the poor, Obama’s attitude is “let them eat cake.”
Why not two school employees who are disgruntled about having to pay for their own health care? Why not two public school homos who were denied pervert-marraige "rights"? Why not a couple of public school kids who didn't get their trophy?
Who's the top dog in charge of Army National Guard 52nd Civil Support Unit? The Oboma administration.
"Incite your opponents into anger, and then use that anger as a weapon against them - " Poke. Praud. Nudge. Push your opponent to act out in anger, and then nail him for what HE'S done. (It worked for the homos who deliberately got themselves beat up, and then ran to the politicians crying for "victim" status. ).
