Weirdness Occurring in Houston, Tx.Submitted by e_goldstein on Thu, 04/17/2008 - 17:08
I went to buy some coffee from my usual place today. When I got in the door, the barista had a pale look on her face. I asked her what was going on. She said that about 30 minutes before I showed up, 3 unmarked white vans pulled up across the street, and guys dressed in camouflage with assault rifles got out, gathered on the sidewalk for a few minutes, got back in their vans, and left. This struck me as pretty odd, especially after I witnessed a U.S. army transport truck driving through the nicest neighborhood in the city last week.
Now, I don't know if the group today was U.S. military, Houston police, DHS, or maybe the militia. Nor do I have any idea as to what they were doing. Another customer who overheard our conversation said that he thought they were rounding up illegal aliens. What I do know, is that the coffee shop is located pretty far away from major targets like the ship channel, refineries, or downtown. The only think that could be considered a target in the area is a federal reserve building, but it is at least 3 miles away across two major roads and a park.
I'm curious if anyone else has recently witnessed, or heard of, troops or feds showing up in places they usually don't go, (and no, the FLDS atrocity doesn't count) or any other suspicious activity, in their area. Thanks.
