There is a growing awareness that the militarization of domestic police forces is the effective declaration of war against the civilian population in the United States. The local police force’s abusive militarized response to protesters in Ferguson, Missouri is sparking outrage around the world and even on capitol hill there is now a growing bipartisan criticism of what is going on.
The military style local police forces in the United States are about as un-American and unconstitutional as you can get. This incident in Ferguson, Missouri that has been witnessed as brandishing military weapons of war against unarmed citizens is in all honesty simply treason against everything the Founding Fathers fought a revolution against. This is NOT what a “free democratic” nation does to its own people.
The militarization of America’s Police forces is funded, and encouraged by the Pentagon’s 1033 program Do civilian and Military leaders now something we don’t? Why all these preparations and stockpiling of Ammunition,weapons and vehicles. To most people with a modicum of common sense, this would seem like preparations for War. But none of this is being distributed amongst the military services, it’s all being put in place for use within the U.S.
And for those of you who dare to speak out and take action. Dont worry the U.S. Army has plans in place to deal with you.
New Army Manual Calls for the Use of Lethal Force Against Peaceful Protesters
The new Army manual, known as ATP 3-39.33, provides discussion and techniques about civil disturbances and crowd control operations that occur in the continental United States (CONUS) and outside the continental United States (OCONUS).
In section 1-2., the manual states that “Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots“. This section of the manual clearly states that protesting is a right protected by the Constitution. However, the authorities leave themselves an out to “legally” engage in lethal force toward protesters when the manual states that “peaceful protests can turn into full-scale riots” and field commanders have the right to make that determination. Subsequently, all protests, peaceful or not, need to be managed by the potential for violence. In other words, all protests are to be considered to be violent and handled accordingly.
