Think Cops Won’t Declare War Against You? They Already Have…

WASHINGTON, DC — The United States Government is now equipping police departments across the country with 13,000 high-powered, mine-resistant military units, according to a newly released video report by Blomberg (below).

These Mine Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) units were used in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.

Each MRAP weighs over 20 tons and is designed to protect against improvised explosive devices.


The units can be equipped with powerful machine guns to destroy targets.

This is in addition to the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition and 2,700 armored vehicles that Homeland Security is now equipped to use on American streets.

The move to beef up police departments with 13,000 MRAPs has left many wondering: what are police preparing for?

Think cops won’t wage war on citizens? They already have.

In 1985, the police literally dropped bombs an American city, burning over 60 homes with men, women, and children inside.


They did this from a police helicopter in a Philadelphia neighborhood, leveling everything in sight after members of a back-to-Africa movement called MOVE did not leave their home.

MOVE members were mostly black and they were deeply critical of government policies, calling for black Americans to move back to Africa and return to nature.

Witnesses say that as MOVE members tried to escape the burning rubble, they were executed by police waiting outside.

They often held rallies in an attempt to wake up other Americans to the corruption they perceived in government.

Eventually, police ordered MOVE members out of their house over allegations such as possessing unregistered firearms, “terroristic” threats, and being in contempt of court.

When members wouldn’t leave, police attempted to raid them and it resulted in an armed standoff.

Ultimately, police would burn them to death, including children, by dropping bombs on them from the sky.

Yes, police can and already have used warfare tactics against Americans.

On April 19, 1993, a small family church in Waco was overrun by police and federal agencies with tanks and machine guns.

The religious group — known as the Branch Davidians — held anti-government views and police suspected that they had unregistered firearms inside their building.

After refusing to exit their church and surrender to the police, a standoff began.


Over 70 men, women, and children were burned to death after police and federal agencies charged them with armored units and lit their church on fire.

The standoff lasted over a month, with agents using loudspeakers to blast sounds of rabits being slaughtered. Agents did this at night as a tactic to deprive the church members of sleep.

Agents also cut off all power and water supplies, forcing the members to survive on canned goods.

The Waco churchgoers held a banner of solidarity with other victims of police brutality before they were shot to death and burned by agents with armored vehicles and helicopters.

Eventually, police charged in with armored tanks and helicopters, gunning down anybody in sight and burning the building to the ground with families inside.

Law enforcement claimed that the church members fired the first shots.

That claim was later contradicted by a 9-11 recording in which members were heard pleading for help, saying “Here they come! Help, they’re shooting at us!”

Yes, the police have already carried out acts of war on American soil against citizens who didn’t obey.

Those are just two examples. With no-knock raids on American homes increasing by 4000% since the 1980s, there are many more.

The question of “Would police ever fight a war against us?” can be answered with a moment’s pause to consider what they’ve done in the past.

Now they’re arming themselves to the teeth with 13,000 armored military units specifically designed for warfare.

Think they won’t try it again?
