Nagin's National Guard mandate model for post-9/11 cammo law enforcement
Mayor Ray Nagin's order that National Guard troops be used to patrol
New Orleans is a method of law enforcement quickly engulfing major US cities
as crime becomes terrorism and men with machine guns and camouflage become the
vanguard of a militarized police state.
Acting at the mayor's request, Louisiana Gov. Kathleen Blanco ordered 300 National
Guardsmen and 60 state police officers to patrol the streets after five teenagers
were shot dead in an SUV in a gangland style killing.
Curfews are also to be enforced in addition to the militarized patrols, a flagrant
abuse of posse comitatus
and a frothing over-reaction to a handful of murders.
Earlier this month, Cleveland City Councilman Zach Reed labeled
some teenagers "terrorists" and said that "the time has come
to make Ward 3 a police state and submit a true zero-tolerance policy,"
having been handed federal grants for off-duty police patrols and surveillance
The homogenization of common street thugs and drug dealers with terrorists
has enabled the federal government and local government officials to enact dictatorial
policies that would not look out of place in Fallujah.
The Fallujah-Louisiana parallel is clear - after four US government contractors
were killed and dragged around the streets of Fallujah by Iraqi citizens, many
establishment Neo-Cons called for the entire city to be nuked.
If a serial killer is on the loose in your city, is the answer to just wipe
out the entire city?
Should the bill of rights and the American way of life be trashed for the sake
of a couple of gang murders?
How can the government justify these measures in the name of protecting a law-abiding
population whom it completely disarmed during Hurricane Katrina, as criminal
gangs and looters stalked neighborhoods?
The precedent for mass gun confiscation in times of real or manufactured emergency
was set during Hurricane Katrina when police and national guard patrols forced
homeowners even in areas unaffected by the hurricane
to hand over their legally owned firearms at gunpoint as is detailed in
the video below.

New Orleans Police Chief Superintendent Warren Riley recently reiterated
his desire to confiscate legally owned firearms before having to back down
under threat of a lawsuit.
New Orleans was turned into a hellhole laboratory where the future zero tolerance
crackdown, in times of real or manufactured crises, was beta tested under the
pretext of chaos, after the federal government deliberately
sabotaged relief efforts.
nationwide FEMA program is training Pastors and other religious representatives
to become secret police enforcers who teach their congregations to "obey
the government" in preparation for a declaration of martial law, property
and firearm seizures, and forced relocation.
This program has already been activated in 1300 counties and is set for completion
at the end of August.
