Milo Nickels – Activist Post January 27, 2011
Picture it: You are sound asleep next to your spouse. Your children are safely tucked away in their bedrooms. Despite the chaos in the world which surrounds you — the riots, the food shortages, the deadly pandemic, the nationwide power outage, and the apparent societal collapse — you are safe and comfortable in your house. Although the world has seemingly gone crazy, you are doing all you can to weather the storm and (for the moment) everything is quiet and peaceful. Suddenly, there is a loud crash! You jerk awake from your slumber. Within seconds, before you can even get to your feet, you are blinded by streams of intense light. You can hear your spouse screaming, and your children crying in the distance, but all that noise is drowned out by the loud, harsh voices behind those blinding lights. “Get down!” “Don’t move!” If you hesitate for even a second, they will violently throw you to the ground. You are dragged from your own house along with the rest of your family. As several officers remain behind to search your house, you are thrown onto a fortified bus without any explanation, and whisked away to a “secure facility.” This is your new home — uniforms, prisoner numbers, forced vaccinations, ID markings, armed guards, barking guard dogs, and a fence with barbed wire pointing inward.
It’s actually not as difficult as you might suspect. Think of all the unconstitutional, victimless-crime laws that the police willingly and aggressively enforce every single day. Take the “seat belt law” for example. Although this law is clearly a violation of the constitution and a glaring display of government overstepping its bounds, it was justified to the police as being “necessary because it saves lives.” The government offers a rationalization, the law gets passed, police supervisors give out the orders, and police do as they are told. It all starts with the justification/rationalization.
It would stand to reason that, if placing people in camps could be justified/rationalized to the police as a “necessary act to save lives,” the police would likely go along with it. But are the police actually being indoctrinated that camps may be necessary to save lives? Sadly, the answer is yes. I recently received the following email, and it blew me away:
|Dear Milo, I love your site. I noticed you haven’t discussed FEMA camps yet, but here’s some information that you might find interesting.I’m a police officer in [withheld to protect officer's identity] State. Everyone in my department was recently required to take an online course sponsored by FEMA about the “Incident Command Structure” (ICS). The Incident Command Structure is the system of control set in place following a disaster, catastrophe, terrorist strike, or other such event. All of the documents from that course can be found on FEMA’s website:http://training.fema.gov/EMIweb/IS/is100lst.aspIn particular you should pay attention to Unit 6: ICS Facilities. Here’s that direct link:http://training.fema.gov/EMIweb/IS/ICS100CR/ICS100IG/06ICS100ICSFac_NMSept05.pdfFirst, I’d like you to notice page 6-8 which is actually entitled “CAMPS“!!! Now, they claim in this training that “camps” are temporary facilities and may not be required. I feel that they do this to condition the police that camps are perfectly normal and may be necessary–so that we won’t hesitate to place people in camps upon command.Secondly, I’d like you to notice page 6-4 which mysteriously states “some incidents may require facilities not included on the standard list”. The use of the word “facilities” would lead me to believe that these locations are already in place and are permanent in nature. But then you have to ask: what kind of facilities are important enough to already have in place, but too secretive to leave out of your police training?I found it very interesting and thought I’d share.
Keep up the good work,
