Fighting for Freedom
This past September the Army Times reported a Army Brigade was to be activated in America under NORTHCOM for being trained in the use of “nonlethal weapons designed to subdue unruly or dangerous individuals” for the purposes of “crowd and traffic control”, 1st BCT commander Col. Roger Cloutier said. However, Northcom’s insistence that the deployments are purely related to natural disaster and mass casualty response.
We now have the Colorado Independent reporting Air Force Gen. Gene Renuart, commander of U.S. Northern Command stating “In the next three years the military plans to activate and train an estimated 4,700 service members for specialized domestic operations". “It’s to help us manage the consequences of a large-scale event,” “We have one [unit] now trained and equipped and assigned to the Northern Command. We’ll grow a second one this calendar year of 2009 and a third one in the calendar year 2010 so we can provide the nation three sets of capabilities that could respond to an event of the size of 9/11 or larger.” http://www.worldcantwait.net/index.php?option=com_content&task=view&id=5101&Itemid=220

I'm writing to pass along my personal account of what happened Wednesday night at the final presidential debate. Myself, nine other veterans and five of our civilian supporters were arrested during a non-violent action at Hofstra University prior to the final presidential debate.
