Armed Homeland Security Agents in ‘Community Outreach’ to “Let People Know They’re in the Area”

Feds out in force to remind residents about snitch program

by Paul Joseph Watson | July 16, 2014


Armed Homeland Security agents are now conducting “community outreach” programs based around maintaining a visible presence in order to “let people know they’re in the area.”

News channel WNCT 9 received calls from alarmed residents in response to reports of numerous DHS vehicles parked outside a bankruptcy court in Greenville, North Carolina. However, the “heavy presence” was not because of any specific threat associated with the building.

DHS officials told the station that armed Homeland Security agents were out in full force “as part of their community outreach to let people know that they are in the area.”

The feds were also present in order to remind people about the DHS’ “See Something, Say Something” domestic snitch program.

The visible presence of armed federal agents for no other reason than to represent a show of force will only deepen concerns that the Department of Homeland Security is becoming America’s domestic standing army, a notion posited by the Rutherford Institute’s John Whitehead in a widely circulated article last month.

sociological-measure“The menace of a national police force, aka a standing army, vested with so much power cannot be overstated, nor can its danger be ignored,” wrote Whitehead, before listing numerous examples of how the DHS is instrumental in pushing America’s decline into a militarized police state.

Frustration also centers around the fact that federal police are keeping themselves busy watching the American people while the country’s borders remain in a state of near chaos.

As we reported recently, armed DHS agents, backed up by a Black Hawk helicopter and two armored vehicles, also staged a show of force in the small Illinois town of Livingston, all to catch one individual who is accused of downloading indecent images.

The armed agents in the report out of Greenville were from the Federal Protective Service, a subdivision of the DHS.

As we reported last year, Federal Protective Service officers were hired to guard an IRS building in St. Louis during a Tea Party protest against the federal agency’s discrimination targeting conservative groups. The FPS has previously been used to spy on protesters. In 2011, the DHS asserted that it had every right to spy on peaceful protest groups and had been using Federal Protective Service (FPS) agents to do so since at least 2006.

Last October, the Department of Homeland Security announced its intention to spend $80 million dollars on hiring a raft of armed guards under the auspices of the FPS to protect IRS and other government buildings in upstate New York during “public demonstrations” and “civil disturbances.”

If they will simply pass out free birth control and make sure the roads to the Abortion Factories remain open, while there, I don't think they will get much push-back.

 Maybe they can head south and stop and question the illegals flooding our border.  Wonder if these guys would have an issue firing on American citizens,

 In the end that will be the question.

  That would have apositive effect.  less  welfare less poor people rhaving children when they are themselves un self supporting.   The population needs to drop as the machines will take over the jobs by 2025 .

There was some kind of "drill" around us a few months ago. Police, black helicopters (3 or 4 of them with NO lights on), fire trucks, the whole 9 yards. It took place after dark near where my hubby works but people on FB from all over the area were reporting the helicopters flying around. 

ETA: This was on a Wed night during the school year. People were saying there were helicopters hovering very loudly over their neighborhoods at 10-11 pm and it was waking up their kids. People around here were alarmed and PISSED.
