North Carolina National Guard Rapid Reaction Force Civil Unrest Training Photos

 

The following photos depict soldiers from the 252nd Combined Arms Battalion training in June for their role as a “rapid reaction force” capable of responding anywhere in the state of North Carolina within “four to eight hours with additional forces arriving within 24 to 36 hours.”  The same unit trained in March to respond “to an emergency ahead of federal assets by providing site security, establishing roadblocks or checkpoints, and assisting civilian authorities in controlling civil disturbances.”  

 

The exercises depicted below were held from June 10-14 at an abandoned shopping mall and a water treatment facility in Charlotte.  Soldiers trained to suppress protesters who perform a sit-in as part of a fictional group called “The Pink Panthers.”  According to the North Carolina National Guard, the exercise at the water treatment facility tests soldiers’ “ability to use nonlethal force to disperse a crowd of aggressors.”  Photos of the exercise show soldiers operating from Be On the Look Out (BOLO) notices with the identities of specific individuals in the crowd, listed as “AIN Members,” that are to be targeted for arrest.

It's gonna come down to shooting Traitorous Oath-Breakers & UN Troops & eating squirrel meat.

Squirrel! Yummmm!

I bought rat traps for the squirrels ... no sense wasting ammo on 'em and making a bunch of noise. Just a quiet "snap" and dinner is served.

There goes any idea of an Egyptian style peaceful protest!

At Ft. Knox they have their own quasi secret special town built where they do this kind of training all of the time.  Been doing it for years.  Nothing new.  The bad part is that citizens actually sign up for it, because they think they're are helping the cause.

That's very sad.

these people are delusional, it's not going to go down that way...

It may well be that signing up as volunteers is the best way to observe the tactics of the military. I thought that the NG was part of the Army ... whatever happened to posse commitatus?

Might want to add the Lone Ranger to the list of movies in the side column due to Tonto's line "Never take off your mask."

Just an old way of saying "Never drop OPSEC."

RETURN TO WHAT?

I'm returning from one of the places our government sent me to for an Adventure and I'm not sure what I will do when I get back.

They have informed me thta I will be required to help train local National Guard for Crowd Control.

FAST FORWARD 60 DAYS....

Well I'm back but I didn't much like the local training idea as the supervisors all acted Gung Ho and did'nt know the real deal so they just sent some people to my house for their own training..
