Over the last few weeks, we have been reporting on Operation Jade Helm, a military training exercise set to take place across Texas this summer in which military personnel will operate covertly among the American public.
Many see this as a dry run for martial law and have connected it to the mysterious Walmart closings. Recently, patriotic Texans have been letting their uncomfortable feelings about this known all across the state.
Earlier today, we reported on a disturbing new video that showed U.S. marines practicing chasing down citizens and subduing them quickly. This came just weeks after Obama publicly blamed the U.S. police for the Baltimore riots, instead of blaming the violent looters themselves.
Now, Obama has announced plans to weaken the police even further by imposing strict controls on their weaponry and gear.
At the end of 2014, it appeared that Obama’s White House would continue to allow police in places like Ferguson to use military-style equipment when confronted with extreme situations like the violent riots. However, an interagency group found “substantial risk of misusing or overusing” in police using equipment like armored tanks and high-powered firearms.
This week, Obama plans to visit the Camden police headquarters to discuss some of his plans.
“I’ll highlight steps all cities can take to maintain trust between the brave law enforcement officers who put their lives on the line, and the communities they’re sworn to serve and protect,” Obama said in his weekly address out Saturday, according to Breitbart.
This comes after Obama’s condemnation of American police caused a drastic drop in law enforcement personnel numbers. Since Obama took office, less people have joined the U.S. police forces than ever before due in large part to the lack of respect they receive.
“For the last six or eight years, proactive law enforcement has come to a stop because of shortage of personnel,” said Chuck Canterbury, President of the Fraternal Order of Police.
“I’m hearing it from guys who were go-getters, who would go out here and get the guns and the bad guys and drugs. They’re hands-off now,” a police leader added to the press. “I’ve never seen so many dejected faces.”
