Default Red Dawn practice in Florida?


A friend shared this on my wall today on Facebook. Why on earth would you practice military maneuvers over a civilian population with simulated gun fire???

Accidents happen during training exercises. So why train in heavily populated areas where many civilians could be hurt and killed?
Unless they want to train where the action will take place.

Exactly the same training in Houston.

Pretty low flying choppers over a populated area for training....And the local police needed this training too? Hard to see with all the red flags..

I saw on the news a day or two ago, this type of military, police drill in Texas.

When fifteen guys surround my truck, over a long skinny open pit in the floor, it would like I am getting my oil changed. What else could it be?

Birthday cake means one thing, a birthday, right?

What do these videos really show? They show, just what it looks like, a military, police take over of civilian areas in our country, nationwide.

Red Dawn is about to start, and me without a horse.

The Army was going to use the old Galveston County Jail for urban warfare training; however, after publicity, they cancelled the training.

http://www.galvestondailynews.com/news/local_news/article_fb01f102-6b56-11e2-96ed-001a4bcf6878.html

GALVESTON — The U.S. Army’s plan to use the old Galveston County Jail for urban warfare training was canceled late Wednesday afternoon.

Calls and emails to the Army were not returned, but the county’s Dudley Anderson, who coordinated the use of the facility with the Army, said the military was a bit “sensitive” to the publicity the training generated
