As the burgeoning American police state continues to form, it appears that the U.S. military wants in on the action according to a recent Army Times article appearing below.
The article indicates that the Army’s 3rd Infantry Division’s 1st Brigade Combat Team, also known as the ‘Raiders’, has been assigned to U.S. Northern Command located at Peterson Air Force Base in Colorado Springs, Colorado for deployment within the United States. The deployment is slated to begin October 1st for one year and will most likely become a permanent fixture to NorthComm with different combat units rotating in from year to year.
The article explains the mission of the combat team as follows:
“They may be called upon to help with civil unrest and crowd control or to deal with potentially horrific scenarios such as massive poisoning and chaos in response to a chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear or high-yield explosive, or CBRNE, attack.”

Thanks to the bloggers over at The Daily Paul, I was recently keyed into an interesting article regarding local police and the DHS.
It looks like police departments across the country are starting to use Homeland Security grants earmarked for terrorism to instead purchase portable fingerprint scanners.
According to the article, some of these portable scanners are being utilized by police at suspicionless DUI checkpoints where it would appear local law enforcement anticipate finding lots of drunk terrorists.

Earlier today, I came across the following blog entry from The Daily Paul forums describing a large suspicionless police action around L.A. last night:
Felt like “Martial Law” in Los Angeles!
From the (incomplete) description of the police action, it sounds like multiple checkpoints were setup along I-5, a major interstate highway in Southern Arizona, and various secondary routes around the target area where all vehicle traffic was being stopped and seized so police could conduct suspicionless checks of one form or another on the traveling public.
This of course is a growing trend across America where a once free people now suffer routine suspicionless interference in their lives by militarized police forces that seek to dominate and control local communities instead of serve and protect.
The text of the article appears below. The comments are also worth a read. If anyone has additional information regarding this police action directed against the people, please let me know:
