LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Joint military training exercises will be held evenings in downtown Los Angeles through Thursday, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.
The LAPD will be providing support for the exercises, which will also be held in other portions of the greater Los Angeles area, police said.

Fuck it. Just fuck it. This country isn't worth saving. Let it tear itself apart because of bullshit like this. I don't care anymore.

There are a number of ways, though my favourite is simply to take them by surprise. They're just walking down the street, minding their own business when suddenly, WHACK! Penis to the face.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Posse_Comitatus_Act

In the context of the article that doesn't tell me anything. This is a rather routine thing. They aren't enforcing the law of the land. They're doing exercises. I see nothing that says they're trying to enforce the law. Nor does the act prohibit enforcing of the law, it just has to be approved by Congress.

When they actually do start trying to arrest people without Congress consent then you can tell me I should be upset.

Exercises are just that, exercises.

Unless we're being paranoid they're doing the exercises to prepare for something bad.

EDIT- or you're trying to tell me it's some sort of stealth cover-up.

Why are the police drilling with the military? Because the police are becoming more militarised. Ever seen video of US soldiers in Iraq? The police in both our countries have been gradually getting more paranoid, even as crime rates rapidly go down, more concerned for their own safety and less for ours. Hence police special forces, hence automatic rifles, hence police tanks, hence no-knock warrants, hence tasers and pepper spray and no oversight and no prosecution for assault. And army protects and serves someone else than the people where it stays.

And why are the army drilling with the police? Because the government wants them to be good at enforcing the law if and when they decide for them to.

I think you're dreadfully paranoid and need to focus on the real demons in our midst. We have enough of them without conjuring up new ones based on very routine events.

It happened in Boston apparently too last year and nothing has happened. Outside of the US it happened in London in other places and nothing has happened.

The wikipedia page for military exercises and operations is rife with similar things. Going back decades.

Dasfuchs has it right in how ridiculous people are sounding in response to this.

In my own itty city we had a similar thing going on. We had them in Hawaii. These things are rather routine.

Again, unless you're telling me this goes back way before the first World War...

It takes a long time to militarize a police force in a way that the populace won't notice!


Also, VIPR squads!

Just because they are routine doesn't mean it is good. This could easily just be an excuse to bring in a whole lot of police and military people to intimidate the populace, especially in light of the Occupy movement.

Or it could be a continuation of what has been going on for decades - nothing.

If the populace is intimidated by something that has been going on constantly for literally over one century (at least in the US to what I can see) then that is totally their problem for being that f'ing paranoid.

People are giving the government way too much credit and like I have told other people by doing that you give them a lot more power over you than if you had a proper amount of wariness about an entity. It's kind of a paradox actually.

It's all just paranoid bs. This has been going on for decades.
As I understand it, these types of events are to train police and the military how to respond effectively to large scale disasters, much like Katrina.

And for you frothing nuts, that doesn't mean how to line the populace up and execute them WWII Nazi style

Meh. Whatever. Military is training. Police are helping out and (probably) engaging in a little Watch 'n' Learn. Boring.

It bothers me so much in context of how the police have treated the various Occupy encampments. Their behavior has been barbaric enough without getting the military involved, because everyone knows what pillars of morality they've been.
