First, An Apology – it turns out the report below, from Wichita Falls, TX, was less than accurate. I passed it on… Mea Culpa. What I can still say that I have received well over a dozen reports in the past 8 weeks that folks have witnessed armor on America streets and highways.
Many of the reports confirm that these vehicles have been seen “guns up” which has always been a big no-no. While I was active, operating off military property meant mandatory removal and securing of *ALL* guns and ordinance, unless it was specifically requested and ordered for a parade. That means no rifles in soldiers’ possession, no machine guns in turrets or other vehicle mounts, and “no shells , no brass” with any artillery pieces. This was the DoD policy to maintain a precedent of clear compliance with Posse Comitatus for many, many years. A change in this policy, if in fact such a change has been made, would have profound and far-reaching implications for the future of our society.

Cops using armored vehicles for traffic detail? I reported over a month ago that I saw vehicles similar to US Army Stryker vehicles on I-95 in Virginia, I have heard, but been unable to verify that they are being *given* to local law enforcement by the DOD/DHS. I expect this topic will be generating a lot of passionate conversation in the coming months, as it represents a serious move towards tyranny if it bears out.
Heather Lewis 12 hours ago via Mobile near Wichita Falls, TX – – Hwy 82 Witchita Falls,TX…WTF? This is a Sheriff in a light armored tank with a gun turret pulling people over for speeding. Flashing red/blue lights and all. I would not have believed it if I hadn’t seen it with my own eyes. We are so screwed! — with Marianne Stebbins, witchita Falls, Freddy Crisp III, Erik Daniel Blair and Pamm Adams Skogen.
