New York: New NYPD Policy to Patrol Protests with Machine Guns

Starvin Larry

2014_07_bratton10a.jpg(ANTIMEDIA) NEW YORK, NY- NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton announced Thursday that 350 heavily armed NYPD officers, called the “Strategic Response Group,” will soon be patrolling protests and the city at large.

He said the new strain of hyper-armed police will be

“…equipped and trained in ways that our normal patrol officers are not. They’ll be equipped with all the extra heavy protective gear, with the long rifles and machine guns — unfortunately sometimes necessary in these instances.”

Bratton announced  their purpose is specifically

“…designed for dealing with events like our recent protests, or incidents like Mumbai or what just happened in Paris.”

Lumping protesters in with terrorists, he said the permanent force will deal with “disorder control and counterterrorism protection capabilities.” It will allegedly assist on crime scenes and help with “crowd control and other large-scale events.”

It is not unusual for authorities to ramp up “security”…

A Veteran Policeman’s Observations on The Golden Horde | SB

horde-1James:  A lot has been written warning us of what will happen when the City Dwellers find their homes are untenable and vacate [en masse as The Golden Horde] for “the country”, but I haven’t seen anything on what the make-up of these hordes will be. The generic term “city dwellers” encompasses a lot of territory. Who will they be,what kind of shape will they be in, how will they be armed…all of these need to be examined.One category needs to be examined, I feel, more closely than others. Since I have seen posts on your site lately dealing with the nitty-gritty, unpleasant aspects of prepping, I think this is a needed look into what’s out there. I’ve been a cop over 20 years, my last uniform assignment before moving to Investigator being a two year stretch of Anti-Crime patrols in the Section 8 Housing projects of my city. This put me into contact with some of the “Worst of the Worst” that will be fleeing the cities in time of trouble. Gang-bangers, common street thugs, dope dealers and users, all have a place in the hierarchy of the streets. And they will certainly be part of what preppers will be facing in times of troubles. Here’s some of what I have learned:

The bottom rung is occupied by the drug addicts and users. They exist, not live as we understand the word. They have no assets, no goals, no drive. But they do have an almost animal instinct to continue living. They will be armed with anything they can steal or lay hands on. Most will have a knife of razor box cutter, and some sort of cheap pistol, or they will not live to get out of the city. Since they have no resources or assets, they will be on the edge of starvation and desperation almost within a day of an event. With no fixed residence or place to defend, they will be hitting the road and coming towards us. Featured Image -- 16225They will become violent without any provocation and there will be no negotiating or bargaining with them. They don’t want to hear your story or excuses. All they want is what you have. And have no doubts: They will do anything to get what they want. And this does include catering to their most base instincts of rape, murder and mutilation. Letting someone like this even close to you and what you have is flirting with death.

Gunrunner: Judge rules the Department of Justice must release Fast and Furious log

America's Watchtower

  project-gunrunner-graphicIt has been quite a long time since there has been anything to write about Fast and Furious. In fact since Eric Holder ran to Barack Obama and begged the president to use Executive Privilege to seal the documents which I believe show the upper level of the Obama regime to have been complicit in the scandal the investigation has been dead for all intents and purposes.

  But today Darrell Issa, and all those who want to learn the truth about the scandal which left Brian Terry and Jamie Zapata dead, won a small victory.

Company proposes $1.082 billion buy-out of Remington | The Herkimer Times

ILION — Global Digital Solutions, Inc. has made an unsolicited offer to buy Remington Outdoor Company for a little more than $1 billion, according to a release from the West Palm Beach, Fla., based company looking to increase its cyber-security and military-related products.

The company filed a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission Tuesday offering to buy Remington, also known as Freedom Group, Inc. for $1.082 billion in cash and shares of Global Digital Solutions’ common stock.

A memo circulating to Remington employees from chairman and Chief Executive Officer George Kollitides said the proposition is a “publicity stunt from an agenda-driven group with no credible financing options,” according to the Grand View Outdoors blog.

The growth of the cyber-arms industry prompted the offer, said Global Digital Solution’s chairman and CEO Richard Sullivan in a news release.

“In this dynamic environment, we see enormous opportunity to consolidate this market with a program of targeted acquisitions, including the proposed Freedom transaction,” he said in the release.

The proposed buyout is one of three Global Digital Solutions has proposed. According to the release, it also is putting forward proposals for Digital Angel Corp and Applied Digital Solutions, both commercial technology companies.

Net sales for Freedom Group in 2013 were to be in the range of $1.25 billion and $1.275 billion, according to its 2013 Financial Guidance report released on Dec. 9, 2013.

Steps were being taken in November 2013 to finish a merger of Global Digital Solutions and Airtronic USA, Inc., an engineering company that produces cyber-arms and parts for such weapons.

Remington has a near-200-year-old manufacturing plant in Ilion and recently announced an expansion in Huntsville, Ala., that would support as many as 2,000 jobs.

A call to Sullivan and Teddy Novin, director of marketing and public affairs for Freedom Group, were not immediately returned.

When They Come: A Warning to Connecticut Police | Bob Owens

Peons, please meet your Master: Lt. J. Paul Vance,
Public Information Officer, CT State Police
Phone: (860) 685-8230 Fax: (860) 685-8301

…Politicians in Connecticut have grossly overplayed their hand with the state’s so-called “assault weapon” ban and registration act.  Being politicians, they seem to feel they are above consequence for their actions, and so it seems as if they will push ahead with plans to attempt to bring the owners of more than 350,000 “undocumented” firearms and nearly 2 million standard capacity magazines to heal.  There are but 1,120 sworn officers in the Connecticut State Police as of last week.  There are though to be between 80,000-100,000 owners of “undocumented” firearms and magazines, along with perhaps hundreds of thousands of sympathetic owners of various other arms… go here and go here for the full list of tyrants (originially published at Sipsey Street Irregulars)
