  • Ahh, Jade Helm, so it starts.

  • How is out there . Wth. Are we playing army men or what…..?

  • yes this is excellent. cops (which is a pretty fn easy job to get, HS diploma, a gang mentality, and seemingly terribly physical condition) being issued these military vehicles “MWRAPS” to combat the failing war at home, the “war on drugs (read: people)”.

    all thats left of this war on our brothers mothers neighbors coworkers classmates and teachers is the screaming…

    looking forward to the RHBB story on the strung-out couple with a couple $20 bags in the desk drawer this thing takes down. brought to you by….our tax dollars! if only we could cut something outta the budget and do more/offer more to our kids…… why are people so fn stoopid….

  • Rolling on the floor laughing!!

  • I read these comments and I have to laugh because it seems that no one here knows that the National Guard Armory is on Walnut Drive and this is a standard troop carrier all armories have. National Guard soldiers drive these, not the cops. DUH.

  • Are you sure it wasn’t somebody’s Grow Dozer? I think that guy cut me off in the safety corridor!

  • Slow learners. They did the same thing about a year ago on their own property on Dolbeer Street.

  • Oh my such ignorant statements. National Guard has nothing to do with the police, they are probably practicing maneuvers which all members are required to do one weekend a month. I hope none of you cop haters ever need a cop.

    • Where does that leave national guard haters?

      Banning the military is a leap towards Liberty.

      Banning cops is a given…

      Water districts should be banned while we’re at it.

      Honestly, national guard are used as police against the native people

  • That National Guard Engineer unit has been there for 50+ years and has helped with floods and fires in the past. But go ahead and keep on bashing good people in the community.
