We learned about DHS buying ammo. And we all feared martial law. The DHS is one step ahead of us. They have been running war zone preparations in LA.
The drill was planned alongside the National Homeland Security Association’s conference at the Bonaventure Hotel and was conducted by the Police Department’s Counter Terrorism and Special Operations Bureau. The drill was complete with black clad police repelling down helicopters, flash grenades and the sounds of gunfire in the streets.
Police Chief Charlie Beck said about 1,800 people from 60 major cities attended the conference and most watched the demonstration. Representatives from the United Kingdom, New Zealand, Australia and Canada also attended.
This expensive operation is justified with the fear mongering of a terrorist threat.
According to Signalsscv.com LAPD spokesman Cmdr. Andrew Smith said “We know that terrorists are capable of acting everywhere. We need to maintain our vigilance. We need to maintain our edge. That’s the reason we do this training.”
About 50 officers from various units, mainly SWAT, air support and hazardous materials, participated in the drill, following months of preparing and notifying area businesses of the exercise.
