Training For Martial Law?

Of course it’s all in the name of “crime fighting”, but 3 states took part of this operation last weekend, which one law enforcement official described as “martial law training”. Law enforcement from 50 different agencies on the local, state and federal level participated in this “training” that took place in Tennessee, Mississippi, and Arkansas last weekend.

I’m all for crime fighting and safety………but when you have an operation that is a basic sweep that involves all levels of law enforcement, you have wonder what it really is all about. I mean you know how all these agencies hate working together, each thinking they are more capable than the other to handle things their way. Now all of a sudden they want to train together to work together?

It won’t surprise me to see more and more of this kind of thing happening all over the place.

Three States Subjected To “Martial Law Sweeps”

Federal law enforcement agencies co-opted sheriffs offices as well state and local police forces in three states last weekend for a vast round up operation that one sheriff’s deputy has described as “martial law training”.

Law-enforcement agencies in Tennessee, Mississippi and Arkansas took part in what was described by local media as “an anti-crime and anti-terrorism initiative” involving officers from more than 50 federal, state and local agencies.

Given the military style name “Operation Sudden Impact“, the initiative saw officers from six counties rounding up fugitives, conducting traffic checkpoints, climbing on boats on the Mississippi River and doing other “crime-abatement” programs all under the label of “anti-terrorism”.

WREG Memphis news channel 3 reported that the Sheriff’s Department arrested 332 people, 142 of whom were fugitives, or “terrorists” as they now seem to be known.

Hundreds of dollars were seized and drugs recovered, and 1,292 traffic violations were handed out to speeding terrorists and illegally parked terrorists.
