Training: Everybody else is doing it. How 'bout you?

HSI Using Armored Vehicles for Training
The new version of the "Black Maria." Why do these statist bastards always choose black as a color scheme?
"ICE Homeland Security Investigations (HSI) special agents participate in a rigorous training exercise utilizing armored vehicles designated for Special Response Teams. Exercises like this one prepare special agents for national security events."

The US government and some of their state and local lackies are becoming more and more scared of us.

Just the way I like it, a frightened enemy is a careless enemy.

Those APC don't have many exits, BTW.

The Department of Homies has learned NOTHING from our history. In Viet-Nam,where the M-113 was queen of the battlefield, no self respecting grunt would ride inside one, as they were mobile coffins. Instead, sandbags were place on top, and that is were the troopers, Army and Marines, rode into the fight. If you've paid attention, every damn agency, including DoD, is adapting SWAT tactics for the coming assault on the American people. This latest vehicle is an example of that. Wait till the boots-on-the-ground Homies, learn in real time, what they could have learned from a book about Viet-Nam. So be it!

They had one of those cans at the Kentucky State Fair Here are my note.Kevlar armor over alloy. No armor over the motor. No spall liner. HALON fire bottle. 1 exit.(rear). Rubber tiers. Cushins(foam!) on jump seats. Claimed it was ".50 cal BMG proof" No internal fire walls. Gun ports below windows,snap open, not armored. Wepon point on roof ,no mount. Fuel tanks NOT self sealing. Not mine proof. No off road capasity (to heavy). "this thing is the size of a bradly" It has all the bad points of an LAV,or striker And none of the firepower.

Black is an intimidating color - there's a measurable psychological impact (at least initially, people will build a tolerance once they become accustomed to it.)

Seeing an American flag on the fender of that abomination make me want to cry and puke at the same time.

Hmmm - something copied from the STAZI and others to foul to name?

Perhaps the 'Citizen Corps' needs to be staffed by three percenters!

Watch the Concept Trailer for "Gray State." That's a likely outcome of all this.

Have these goddamn people gone insane ? ! .

And that, folks, is why you DON'T have a single point for them to attack. While these brave minions of the state concentrate on where they KNOW the threat is, can you picture the effect of a carefully placed cross-fire position?

this is a target-rich environment for any serious threat.

I love watching these goofballs try and run during training with a 6 lb+ thigh rig in place. Like watching someone surf with a bowling ball strapped to their thigh.
