Will You Participate In Door to Door Operations of the Military?

Rednecks: Do you see a problem with this blatant bullshit rationale for allowing any military unit to patrol the streets, much less enter into your home?

This redneck, I can say up front, says, “You are not welcome into my home.” I hope they keep this bullshit up north, for I doubt it will fly down here. Better yet, why don’t we, as Americans, finally stand up to the Martial Law plans and the Police State the government has made to protect its interests (for they certainly are not protecting us Americans).

Guardsmen to conduct urban training at Arcadia in April

Staff Writer

The Carroll National Guard unit will train on urban military operations by holding a four-day exercise at Arcadia.

The purpose of the April 2-5 drill will be to gather intelligence, then search for and apprehend a suspected weapons dealer, according to Sgt. Mike Kots, readiness NCO for Alpha Company.

Citizens, law enforcement, media and other supporters will participate.

Troops will spend Thursday, April 2, staging at a forward operations base at Carroll. The next day company leaders will conduct reconnaissance and begin patrolling the streets of Arcadia to identify possible locations of the weapons dealer.

The primary phase will be done Saturday, April 4, when convoys will be deployed from Carroll to Arcadia. Pictures of the arms dealer will be shown in Arcadia, and soldiers will go door to door asking if residents have seen the suspect.

Soldiers will knock only at households that have agreed to participate in the drill, Kots noted.

“Once credible intelligence has been gathered,” said Kots, “portions of the town will be road-blocked and more in-depth searches of homes and vehicles will be conducted in accordance with the residents’ wishes.

“One of the techniques we use in today’s political environment is cordon and knock,” Kots explained. “We ask for the head of the household, get permission to search, then have them open doors and cupboards. The homeowner maintains control. We peer over their shoulder, and the soldier uses the homeowner’s body language and position to protect him.”

During this phase of the operation, troops will interact with residents and media while implementing crowd-control measures and possibly treating and evacuating injured persons.

The unit will use a Blackhawk helicopter for overhead command and control, and to simulate medevacs.

The drill will culminate in the apprehension of the suspected arms dealer.

Alpha Company will conduct a review of the drill on Sunday, April 5.

A meeting to give residents more information and accept volunteers will be held 7 p.m. Monday, March 2, in the Arcadia American Legion hall.

Kots said the exercise will replace Alpha Company’s weekend drill for April.

“We have a lot of extended drills this coming year,” he added.

In addition to surveillance, searching and apprehension, the exercise will also give the troops valuable experience in stability, support, patrol, traffic control, vehicle searches and other skills needed for deployment in an urban environment.

“This exercise will improve the real-life operational skills of the unit,” said Kots. “And it will hopefully improve the public’s understanding of military operations.”

The pre-drill work with residents is as important at the drill itself.

“It will be important for us to gain the trust and confidence of the residents of Arcadia,” said Kots. “We will need to identify individuals that are willing to assist us in training by allowing us to search their homes and vehicles and to participate in role-playing.”

“We really want to get as much information out there as possible, because this operation could be pretty intrusive to the people of Arcadia.”

  1. Yeah that’s pretty friggin nuts… Here in NYC when you go through grand central there’s always about a dozen National Guardsmen armed to the teeth and fully-vested. I can’t believe more people in NYC don’t complain about it. This is one of those things where I think the Left really needs to understand their issues dovetail with grassroots conservatives. Idk, I feel like smart Progressives have far more allies then they’re counting. I consider myself and anti-imperialism, pro-social justice, pro-2nd amendment progressive. I feel like too few on the left are paying attention to the increasing size and involvement of the government, or for that matter the dillapadation of their communities.

    This sort of martial law development concerns me. There’s an intimidation factor us poor folk in NYC are all too familiar with when the Big Bad Gov’t publicly gathers its strength and guns. Not cool.

    Honestly, I think what their afraid of is what’s going on in most modernized countries at the moment. Without any American news coverage, massive economic protests into the tens of thousands are taking place all over Europe demanding a saner, more equitable and accountable economic system. Americans actually have alot more to worry about then europeans though. We’re NOT all guaranteed that if we’re sick, there’s some hospital that’ll take us in. We’re not guaranteed our pensions and the health insurance we have only covers us when we’re NOT really sick. Average household Credit Card debt is somewhere over $8,000 in the U.S. (not including mortgages, medical bills, etc.)

    The truth is, most Americans are living close to the economic edge. We borrow money to buy fancy gidgets, electronics or fetishized trinkets… so we kinda LOOK like we’re not about to go broke… but the truth is, you take away 8 weeks worth of work from the average 2 income family, and they’ll be damn close to living on the streets….

    So when we here, in the U.S. starting demanding some accountability or fairnes… well… you remember Kent State right? And the hoses and dogs in Selma? It’s gonna get ugly…
