Feds to train cops on how to deal with “mentally ill” veterans

Posted: February 3rd, 2012 by Militant Libertarian

Mili Note: Maybe cops just shouldn’t use the “blazing-guns approach” at all, Mr. Cusick.

The Justice Department is funding an unusual national training program to help police deal with an increasing number of volatile confrontations involving highly trained and often heavily armed combat veterans.

Developers of the pilot program, to be launched at 15 U.S. sites this year, said there is an “urgent need” to de-escalate crises in which even SWAT teams may be facing tactical disadvantages against mentally ill suspects who also happen to be trained in modern warfare.

“We just can’t use the blazing-guns approach anymore when dealing with disturbed individuals who are highly trained in all kinds of tactical operations, including guerrilla warfare,” said Dennis Cusick, executive director of the Upper Midwest Community Policing Institute. “That goes beyond the experience of SWAT teams.”

  1. The enforcers subjugate and enslave via the assumption that their victims desire to go on living. Thousands of GUNvernment mercenaries are returning home with depleted uranium poisoning, not to mention many other physical and psychological afflictions.

    What do they really have to live for?

    They are forever poisoned by DU and at a minimum cannot have children. Some are so contaminated that they might as well be glowing and other human beings should not even be anywhere near them at all.

    They have bad organs, missing limbs, and ravaged minds.

    Again, what do they have to live for?

    So we will indeed see much, much more as those who went abroad to wreak destruction and murder in foreign lands now return to a nation and people that must then look after them, regardless of whether it is in their homes or in hospitals or in prisons.

    Of course, there are tens of millions of Americans who will rightly REFUSE to associate with them in any way, shape, or form and that includes caring for them, tending to them, and paying for them.

    The elite are counting on this as part and parcel of their divide and conquer strategy for America.

    You will want to read this whole commentary but this link will take you to just one comment:


    You will recall Alexander Solzhenitsyn in his book Gulag Archipelago:

    “And how we burned in the camps later, thinking: What would things have been like if every Security operative, when he went out at night to make an arrest, had been uncertain whether he would return alive . . . . Or if, during periods of mass arrests . . . people had not simply sat there in their lairs, paling with terror at every bang of the downstairs door . . . and had boldly set up in the downstairs hall an ambush of half a dozen people with axes, hammers, pokers, or whatever else was at hand? . . .

    “If . . . if . . . We didn’t love freedom enough. . . . We submitted with pleasure! . . . We purely and simply deserved everything that happened afterward.” Solzhenitsyn says “resistance should have begun right there, at the moment of the arrest itself. But it did not begin.” Of course, he is talking about Russia. Here the same thing would have a different style. For instance, in the Soviet Union you were simply arrested. Here, if you ask one of the super patriot zombies whether you are being arrested, he will say you are not, but you must go along to the camp.

    The Gulag Archipelago is freely downloadable and you can find those links by visiting the Gulag Archipelago Wikipedia page and locating the external links area.

    You will want to grab copies of Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand, Hologram of Liberty by Kenneth W. Royce, Starving The Monkeys by Tom Baugh, Unintended Consequences by John Ross, Enemies Foreign and Domestic by Matthew Bracken, and The Declaration by Evan F. Nappen.

  2. Here is a great compiling of works to bring you up to speed quickly.


    You can always order these at Amazon via the link at Lew Rockwell dot com and a portion of the proceeds will help LRC continue its efforts and advocacy.

  3. So if you are a young person, DON’T become a GUNvernment mercenary of any flavor, state-sponsored or otherwise.

    If you are already a mercenary refuse, resist, and quit. Even if you spend time in the brig, hopefully you won’t be exposed to DU.

    What if you’ve married someone contaminated with DU? GET DIVORCED ASAP!

    What if you are contaminated by DU? Contact the state department to be put on the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear containment, disposal, and termination team.

    What if you are tasked as the spiritual leader and shepherd of a flock? It is your duty to inform and protect your flock. Make them aware of the dangers and if they still desire to have DU in the flock…get the flock out of there most rapido. You would steadfastly refuse to expose your flock to murderers, pedophiles, and rapists…so why wouldn’t you refuse to expose them to depleted uranium? Now that you’ve read this, and you decide not to tell your flock…and then your flock discovers that you neglected to share this life-saving information? What then? Should you be blackballed? Tarred and feathered? Hmmm.

    What if you’re the Mayor or a Council Member or a Sheriff or a Police Chief or a Veterans Administrator? You have the same duties as any other leader and shepherd of a flock. You have a DUTY to educate, inform, and lead…at least as long as you continue to stand your post.

    So there are some very, very hard, tough, and heart-wrenching decisions that most everyone will be required to make…or not…and if not then those decisions will most likely be made for you.

    Those who are contaminated with depleted uranium but continue to expose others are just as guilty as someone who knowingly spreading AIDS or leprosy. Eventually, communities will have orders to refuse, resist, and destroy ANYONE attempting to contaminate others with DU. It’s nothing personal…just human preservation you understand.

    Most who read this will do nothing, some will begin today to become knowledgeable in the proper courses of action, and a few…contaminated or not…will terminate themselves(please use a black marker to place the letters D and U on your body before termination).

    And…yes, it is what it is…here we are…what say you?

    Much the same as we cannot put the nuclear genie back in the bottle…you cannot unread this…mmwwhaaahahaha…enjoy!

    And this as well:


  4. Ron Paul is the only candidate who is a doctor and who is willing to educate Americans truthfully about the hard road ahead…regardless.
