Disturbing U.S. Military Riot Control Pictures

(PUBLIC INTELLIGENCE)   It’s not that the U.S. military trains for this, which is necessary and recommendable. It’s not that they seem to enjoy it so much, which is stupidly understandable. It’s that they are often being trained to detain and dispel rioters that are engaging in legally protected activities. Some of the situations in the following photos include environmental protesters holding signs that say “Save the Halibut” and “Stop the Violence”, as well as antiwar protesters holding signs with peace symbols and “No more war” written on them. One set of pictures from a training exercise for the military of Belize shows protesters holding signs that read “Freedom 2 Worship” and “No More Taxes”.

  • Clearly police should be trained to deal with rowdy prisoners and rioters. So I’m stumped why it bothers you to see that police are trained to deal with rowdy prisoners and rioters. Would you prefer they have no training and the rioters take lives and commit crimes without the police having the ability to stop them? In case you haven’t been watching the violent radical left is rioting in the streets in Canada and America. The prediction is this will be a long hot summer as radicals take to the streets to push their political agenda. I am not looking forward to this kind of home grown terrorism and would like to see the police stop it before a lot of people get hurt.

  • Hey GoneWithTheWind,
    If you did a bit of research, you would find out that those “radicals” that trash the streets in ski masks ARE police in fact. Not to mention the fatalities of innocent civilians by POLICE at these peaceful demonstrations. If they didn’t have some of their men disguise themselves and cause chaos those “well-trained police officers” couldn’t mace the innocent demonstrators in the face, fire tear gas at them, sic k-9’s on them, and pummel them with their billy clubs and shields. Unlike you, there are still people in this country that protest for peace and freedom. I wouldn’t be so quick to dismiss them. Once they are all gone, you’ll be spending all your time whining when they’re kicking YOUR butt. I’d go as far as to assume that you’re vaccinated and ready to go.

  • Since you used a picture from my training class, I must point out that your information is not correct. In the training environment, the opposing force (rioters in this case) is not intended to depict a specific organization, ethnic group, country or people. This negates the use of uniforms, symbols and slogans actually used by known organizations. And, some “legally protected activities” are perpetrated by individuals in illegal situations, e.g. while trespassing or while armed. These training scenarios are developed to prepare police officers to act in accordance with accepted procedures while using the minimum amount of force necessary to disperse a potentially threatening situation. You are correct on one count – this type of training is necessary. It is necessary for military men and women to prepare themselves physically and mentally to protect lives when called. If you think we “enjoy it so much”, I invite you to attend a training session or two. Better yet, raise your right hand and swear to do your part to defend something greater than yourself, instead of just blogging about it online.

  • Actually smart ass I am a disabled veteran of two wars and was a first responder on 9/11, how about you catch up to me instead and learn the truth. Our leaders are breaking the law, your being trained to fight the people not some asshole in a cave.
