As concern grows over the militarization of law enforcement and government agencies, this report certainly will not ease any minds.
Paul Joseph Watson broke the news for infowars:
A document released by the U.S. Army details preparations for “full scale riots” within the United States during which troops may be forced to engage in a “lethal response” to deal with unruly crowds of demonstrators.
The appearance of the document amidst growing unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, with the National Guard now being called in to deal with the disorder, is an ominous coincidence.
The 132-page document, titled U.S. Army Techniques Publication 3-39.33: Civil Disturbances (PDF), was written in April 2014 and recently obtained by Public Intelligence.
The document makes it clear that the techniques detailed therein are to be applied both outside and inside the “continental United States (CONUS)” in the event of “unruly and violent crowds” where it is “necessary to quell riots and restore public order.”
Once again, we see the same vague language and broad-sweeping policy that opens the door for rampant abuse of government power.
If you would like to read the Army’s disturbing document in it’s entirety, you may do so here.
I think a quote from Thomas Jefferson is prudent: “When government fears the people, there is liberty. When the people fear the government, there is tyranny.” These words are becoming a mantra for the patriots fighting back against the Obama Administration’s rampant abuse of power.
