Diving Blackhawks, blank rounds of machine gun fire, strafing runs, troops rappelling from choppers, and road blockades. Local police + military. All over the skies of Miami at night, just a few days ago. According to this local TV clown in the video, this event was for the purposes of “meeting requirements,” preparing for overseas military drills, and making sure the equipment is in check. Can you say schmuck?
The paramilitary personnel chose to conduct this just as a Miami Heat game was coming to a conclusion and traffic and people were clogging in the streets. And of course, no one knew this was only a show, and not the real thing. Again, here’s the official story  for the hopelessly hapless who believe it:
The training is designed to ensure that military personnel are able to operate in urban areas and to focus on preparations for overseas deployment. It also serves as a mandatory training certification  requirement.
It is so un-pc to say this anymore, especially post-Sandy Hook, but, ask any self-defense enthusiast, again, why they need military-style rifles and high-capacity magazines? Reason #1 is in this blog post and often repeated all over the country. Reason #2 is this : when gangs of leeches want to come and take what you have that they don’t have.
