In fact, at least three other police stations have misplaced or been robbed of their government-issued Humvees in the past five years. Weapons turn up missing, too. Yahoo News found that local police departments like Palestine’s have been suspended from the Pentagon 1033 program for misplacing at least 14 M16 assault rifles, 11 M14 assault rifles, 21 pistols and 10 shotguns. These figures don’t come close to representing the total number of weapons that have been stolen or lost over the life of the program, however — a figure the Defense Department has not released.
Yahoo News contacted the 35 states with police departments that have been suspended by the Pentagon over the past five years. Just 18 of the states responded with what equipment, if any, was missing in those law enforcement agencies that caused the suspensions.
The Defense Department won’t release a full list of missing equipment nationwide, so it’s impossible to know the full scope of the problem. It relies on state coordinators to ensure departments aren’t misusing or misplacing things, according to Defense Department spokesman Mark Wright.
“We’ve got some people … that run this program, but there’s no way we can keep track of 8,000 different agencies,” Wright said.
FK – What? The Fed govt. isn’t omnipotent? I thought they were gods that couldn’t be defeated in a conventional war for restoration of Liberty.
Let them keep sending the stuff out here. We’re gonna need it. Unless the “Liberal”(commie) trash has thrown it’s hands up and gone away. Has it?
Other than the fact that combat dogs save an average of 150 American lives during their service, these living creatures form strong emotional attachments to the men assigned to them. But when their time is up — when they become too old, combat fatigued or shall-shocked to be useful in combat — rather than transport them home for adoption, they are sometimes heartlessly abandoned.
FK – Why should this surprise anyone? They consider us all to be livestock. This has been SOP for a long time:
Moms Demand has persuaded just five businesses — Target, Chipotle, Jack in the Box, Chili’s, and Sonic — to ask customers to leave their guns at home. They were also able to pressure a sixth business, Starbucks, into asking open carry practitioners not to be so flamboyant about visibly carrying guns in their stores.
That’s a total of six businesses, which is 56,994 less than the current total of those who are embracing guns in their bars, restaurants and other businesses.
FK – Have we finally reached the 100th monkey? Now we have to repeal all the CCW laws and simply get the governments to recognize our most basic right. Sadly many won’t see the necessity of this.
The original Scorpion pattern was developed by Crye Precision as part of the Objective Force Warrior program more than a decade ago. The Scorpion W2 variant was modified from the initial pattern by Army Natick Labs. Similar in design to MultiCam, the chosen pattern could be used in the field by the summer of 2015.
After a four-year intensive camouflage research and testing process, this selection couldn’t have been more anticipated. For more than a decade, the Army has relied on the widely unpopular UCP as the official standard-issue pattern.
FK – It’s incredible that it takes so much time and money to do such a simple thing. Not it’s not, it’s the government.
The old woodland cammo was fine for temperate and tropical climates but too green and dark for winter in the Eastern Woodlands. The Military really only needs 4 patterns: summer woodland, winter woodland, desert and snow. Multicam works much better as an all around but it’s still a little too green for winter for my taste.
On Monday, Peña Nieto called for “justice” for illegal immigrants, scolded governors who did not believe in more open borders, and said America was “the other Mexico.”
Brown said that all illegal immigrants from Mexico “are welcome in California.” As Breitbart News has noted, though Peña Nieto thanked California for all it has done for Mexicans, especially migrants, the Latino Caucus wants even more. For instance, even though the University of California has accepted a record number of Hispanics, the Latino Caucus had said bilingual education and bringing back formal affirmative action policies will be top legislative priorities going forward.
Coburn’s belly-aching to the press belies a culpability he shares, along with some other prominent names gun owners have been encouraged to support.
Topping the list for Johnson’s “Aye” votes was Lamar Alexander, A-rated by NRA, and confident he could vote for confirmation without any worries that would jeopardize his Association endorsement. Next giving Johnson her approval was Kelly Ayotte, someone NRA ran ads for. Also giving a thumbs ups were NRA A-raters John Barrasso, Roy Blunt, Richard Burr, Saxby Chambliss, the aforementioned Coburn, Thad Cochran, Bob Corker, Mike Enzi, Jeff Flake, Orrin Hatch, Dean Heller, John Isakson, Mike Johanns, Ron Johnson, Jerry Moran, Lisa Murkowski, Pat Roberts, John Thune, Patrick Toomey, and Roger Wicker.
FK – The No Rights that aren’t Allowed group might as well be working for the opposition… Maybe they are.
“Let slip the mere hint that Pakistani Muslims are more likely than indigenous Englishmen to commit sexual crimes and you will be branded as a racist and an Islamophobe, to be ostracised in the workplace and put henceforth under observation,” writes Scruton. In fact, when one father went to the police demanding justice for his abused daughter, the writer tells us, he was “arrested for obstruction and charged with wasting police time.”
FK – Who wrote and voted for these ‘laws?” Ragheads elected to the Brit parliment? No. “Liberal”(commie) trash just like the trash in our own governments. Now who and where are our real blood enemies? Hint: They ain’t hiding in a cave on the other side of the world.
FK – And without an extensive and thorough “Liberal”(commie) trash season it will happen here.
