In keeping with the ever-increasing trend of military and law enforcement cooperation and the growing prevalence of civilian police forces conducting drills with military forces, South Carolina's Richland County Sheriff's Office has announced that it will be engaging in joint training exercises on Monday and Tuesday with unidentified units from Ft. Bragg.

Local Police Train With Special Forces To Raid Farm Houses, Conduct Domestic Raids

(February 17, 2014) -- On January 20, I wrote an article entitled "Upcoming Military Drill Off Limits To Reporters," in which I reported on the announcement that South Carolina's Richland County Sheriff's Office would be engaged in joint training exercises with unidentified units from Ft. Bragg.

The official Richland County Sheriff's Department's press release stated that "Citizens may see military and departmental vehicles traveling in and around rural and metropolitan areas and may hear ordinance being set off or fired which will be simulated/ blanks and controlled by trained personnel."

The release also stated that the exercise was being held "Due to Sheriff Leon Lott's longstanding commitment to making sure that deputies are trained and prepared for every event and potential threat and his desire to assist the military to ensure their preparations."

It is worth noting that Ft. Bragg hosts some of the US Army's more elite units such as Special Forces as well as more elite airborne and aviation support units. Ft. Bragg is also home to the elite Delta Force.

Beyond this information, however, very little was known about the drills. That is, until now.

According to independent sources, Special Forces were indeed involved in the drills in concert with local civilian police forces.

Civilian police and military units worked together in practice for setting up and maintaining checkpoints as well as other checkpoint-related drills. Both police and military also worked together to practice chopper insertion -- the deployment of troops/operatives by way of helicopters.

What is most disturbing, however, is that, according to sources, both the civilian police and US military forces were also training to raid farm houses and engage in domestic raids.

No wonder the Richland County Sheriff's Department was so tight-lipped about the operations they were taking part in during the process of these joint drills.

The fact that the joint drill exercises in violation of Posse Comitatus and a long-standing American tradition of separation between domestic policing and military activity is concerning enough.

However, the fact that they are training for domestic operations such as raiding American farm houses, setting up domestic checkpoints, and conducting other related raids on the home-front should be terrifying to every single American that desires to keep what little shred of freedom they have left.

If the reports of these sources are accurate, the American military and indeed the Richland County Sheriff's Department clearly see the American people and the people of South Carolina as the enemy.



Upcoming Military Drill Off Limits to Reporters

(January 20, 2014) -- In keeping with the ever-increasing trend of military and law enforcement cooperation and the growing prevalence of civilian police forces conducting drills with military forces, South Carolina’s Richland County Sheriff’s Office has announced that it will be engaging in joint training exercises on Monday and Tuesday with unidentified units from Ft. Bragg.

The exercises are scheduled to take place on Monday and Tuesday and will run up to midnight on both days and will take place largely in Lower Richland, near Eastover and Hopkins.

Exercises are also planned for the areas of Screaming Eagle Rd. near Elgin and North Richland County very close to outbound Monticello Road.

Beyond this information, however, very little else is known about the upcoming shadowy training exercises. That is, except for the fact that they may be very loud and possibly alarming to the local residents unprepared for or uninformed of them.

According to the State newspaper, reporters will not be allowed to "view or participate" in the exercise.

Clearly, simulated combat will be a part of the drill due to the fact that residents are being told not to be alarmed by the sound of gunfire or "ordinance."
