A contact I have inside the police department has confided in me that they are preparing for civil unrest in the U.S. This person told me, "they have been planning for this for a few years now, and it's not just here, it's everywhere." Everywhere meaning all across the country.
This goes quite a stretch beyond routine police training in dealing with crowds and your typical riot scenario. They are training for complete civil unrest nation wide.
No specific reactionary trigger was candidly identified as the reason for all out civil unrest but the failing economy was mentioned out of context with this scenario, as was the possibility of race riots in the event Obama was not reelected in 2012. Both spoke of in such a way as to suggest that either could be the cause. The conversation mostly centered around civil unrest with economic collapse and race riots eluded to but never was there a strong correlation made. Although civil unrest and economic collapse were mentioned in separate parts of the conversation, it was clear to me in hindsight that was indeed the message.
My source is anonymous for obvious reasons, but I can tell you it's coming from someone that doesn't have any reason to lie, fear monger, act as an alarmist etc.
In fact this person has little interest in "conspiracy theories." I know this through other people as I have never spoke to this individual about the NWO or anything related, while others have, and this person has shown no interest in having the conversation or given any indication (to my knowledge) that they believe in a vast conspiracy of people in seats of power.
Nearly 24 hours after the conversation took place it dawned on me the intention behind it. The person I spoke with was concerned, very concerned. In a jaded police officer kind of way. I think, and this is merely speculation and inference, that the departments have geared up for this long enough to where it's no longer just a drill but a reality. They are starting to realize the sad truth, it's not a matter of if, but when.
