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.

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.

Question:

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.

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.
