Shocking video: Police are now “armed for war” against returning veteransFrom Infowars.com:In an interview with Fox 59, a Morgan County, Indiana Police Sergeant admits that the increasing militarization of domestic police departments is partly to deal with returning veterans who are now seen as a homegrown terror threat.Subscribe to CruxShare on FacebookShare on TwitterIn a chilling story entitled Armed for War: Pentagon surplus gives local police an edge, we learn how a Mine Resistant Vehicle (MRAP) which was once used during the occupation of Afghanistan will now be “patrolling the streets of central Indiana,” according to the report.Sgt. Dan Downing of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department states, “When I first started we really didn’t have the violence that we see today,” adding, “The weaponry is totally different now that it was in the beginning of my career, plus, you have a lot of people who are coming out of the military that have the ability and knowledge to build IEDs and to defeat law enforcement techniques.”Downing goes on to relate how citizens approach the vehicle when it stops at gas stations to express their concerns that the militarization of police is about arming cops with the tools required for mass gun confiscation programs.“We were actually approached when we’d stop to get fuel by people wanting to know why we needed this…what were we going to use it for? ‘Are you coming to take our guns away?’” said Downing. “To come and take away their firearms…that absolutely is not the reason why we go this vehicle. We got this vehicle because of the need and because of increased violence that we have been facing over the last few years… I’ll be the last person to come and take anybody’s guns.”——————–Recommended Links——————–​ You – America’s quiet hero?Be a REAL hero.

I LIVE 50 MILES FROM ANY SMALL MEDIUM TOWN AND A 100 MILES FROM ANY BIG TOWN AND YET WE HAVE ONE OF THE VEHICLES . ALREADY OUR LOCAL OFFICERS ARE BOSTING ABOUT WHAT THEY CAN DO WITH THIS VEHICLE . WE HONESTLY HAVE NOTHING FOR THEM TO DO WITH THIS VEHICLE . I DOUBT IF WE CAN AFORD THE GASS FOR IT SO WHY IS IT HERE ?

  • I heard that some people (maybe Oathkeepers? some other veterans group?) put up signs near military bases saying "Don't Shoot Americans"

    I wonder if we could somehow put up a billboard on the highways saying "Policemen,
    Please Don't Shoot Patriotic Americans!"
  •         WHAT ABOUT THIS ONE ?  THEY SET THIS UP WITH REGULAR LAW ENFORCEMENT . { THE EQUIPMENT }  LATER ON THEY BRING OTHER MILITERY OR PEOPLE WHO THEY CHOSE TO USE THE EQIPMENT ON THE PEOPLE AT SOME POINT????

  •        I DON'T THINK THE LAW ENFORCEMENT REALIZE THEY ARE TO BE USED AGAINST THE PEOPLE AT SOME POINT.

  • DHS training boy scouts to shoot "disgruntles veterans"
    Obama has his domestic army, and they believe that the patriots are the enemy!
    Yet if I try to tell people about this, they will think I am crazy..
