PoliceState: US Army's Official Martial Law Protocol LEAKED!

Army Manual Outlines Plan To Kill Rioters, Demonstrators In America

“Warning shots will not be fired”

A newly leaked US Army Military Police training manual for “Civil Disturbance Operations” outlines how military assets are to be used domestically to quell riots, confiscate firearms and even kill Americans on U.S. soil during mass civil unrest.

The document (PDF), which is dated 2006 and was used for a self-learning course at the U.S. Army Military Police School at Fort McClellan, makes it clear that the operations described in the manual apply to both “CONUS and OCONUS,” meaning inside the Continental United States and outside the Continental United States.

The document outlines how military assets will be used to “help local and state authorities to restore and maintain law and order” in the event of mass riots, civil unrest or a declaration of martial law.

The primary function of military assets will be focused around, “breaking up unauthorized gatherings and by patrolling the disturbance area to prevent the commission of lawless acts,” states the document, adding, “during operations to restore order, military forces may present a show of force, establish roadblocks, break up crowds, employ crowd control agents, patrol, serve as security forces or reserves, and perform other operations as required.”

The manual also describes how prisoners will be processed through temporary internment camps under the guidance of U.S. Army FM 3-19.40 Internment/Resettlement Operations, which as we reported earlier this year, outlines how internees would be “re-educated” into developing an “appreciation of U.S. policies” while detained in prison camps inside the United States.

On page 20 of the manual, rules regarding the use of “deadly force” in confronting “dissidents” are made disturbingly clear with the directive that a, “Warning shot will not be fired.”

The manual includes lists of weapons to be used against “rioters” or “demonstrators,” including “antiriot grenades.” It also advises troops to carry their guns in the “safe port arms” stance, a psychological tactic aimed at “making a show of force before rioters.” Non-lethal weapons and water cannons are also included.

Just Like How Martial Law Would Be Declared In 2008?

There were fears Bush would declare martial law in 2008, and cancel the election. Turned out to be wrong.

Ready the flame-throwers!

It's BS distortions like this that keep me from reading infowars. There is plenty of twisted and messed up crap the government is responsible for, but reading some field manual and piecing together passages into a narrative that reads like the military is the SS just waiting for the order to mass-exterminate the public...yeah buy some better crack...it's 74% cheaper thanks to the drug war, you can splurge.

Since I'll be getting flamed I'll explain a few of the things to you, though I'm sure it'll be a waste of time.

#1: The Army is huge, and the LAST thing you want is squad leaders, and green Lieutenants making decisions about actions under martial law with no guidance.

#2: The document is post-Katrina where the use of the military was clumbsy at best, so it was determined there should be an FM covering what is the appropriate role for the military in those circumstances.

"breaking up unauthorized gatherings and by patrolling the disturbance area to prevent the commission of lawless acts,” states the document, adding, “during operations to restore order, military forces may present a show of force, establish roadblocks, break up crowds, employ crowd control agents, patrol, serve as security forces or reserves, and perform other operations as required.”

#3 Connecting a dot where there isn't one between detainee ops and resettlement ops...Back to Katrina for an example...what is the military supposed to do with the people rescued from the flood waters...just drop them off on dry land and say good luck?

#4: Port Arms...i.e. diagonally across the chest, with the trigger hand on the butt stock...i.e. "safe" in it lessens the chance of a negligent(accidental) discharge...and if it shoots it goes up and away rather than ricochet into a crowd. The "low ready" is what you'll typically see weapons carried at, and it is much quicker to fire from than port arms.

#5 No warning shots...that is typical. Generally speaking warning shots are bad policy short of war. The military doesn't train for warning shots, same as police, if you pull the trigger then you have to have justification under law (i.e. self defense, or the defense of others). Warning shots lower the threshold for the discharge of a weapon. Warning shots are easily mistaken for incoming fire, which in a tense riot type situation leads to a fire fight...not good...ever read about the Boston Massacre?

Good post!
