Residential Infantryman, Training For Martial Law?
ORIGINAL CAPTION: My son in law today saw about 20 army guys with full combat gear walking down the street inHayden, Idaho. He took pictures and asked them what they were doing. ‘They said they were just training. One of the troopers was carrying a saw or squad automatic weapon. Is this just training or is it getting the people used to seeing troops patroling the streets. My son in law lives about a mile from the reserve unit at the airport. my son in law was kind of surprised to see those guys. I”ve lived in the Hayden area most of my life and never saw any patrols.

I really have no idea what these guys were doing “training” in a residential neighborhood. If they need to train, they can do it on their “training grounds”. But this definitely brings to mind the 1878 Posse Comitatus Act which Bush destroyed, along with all the other freedoms that the “Patriot” Act polished off.
Most people really couldn’t care less that our politicians and leaders come under no condemnation for disobeying the very rules our founding fathers died to install. If this stuff doesn’t bother you, than I can only quote the patriot Samuel Adams.
If you love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home and leave us in peace. We seek not your council, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.
