Army To Recruiters: Treat Armed Citizens as Security Threat

WASHINGTON -- The Army has warned its recruiters to treat the gun-toting civilians gathering at centers across the country in the wake of the Chattanooga, Tenn., shooting as a security threat.

Soldiers should avoid anyone standing outside the recruiting centers attempting to offer protection and report them to local law enforcement and the command if they feel threatened, according to a U.S. Army Recruiting Command policy letter issued Monday.

Armed citizens -- some associated with activist groups and militias -- were standing vigil outside recruiting centers in Wisconsin, Georgia, Tennessee, Idaho and elsewhere this week, saying they want to provide protection to servicemembers barred from carrying firearms on duty. Four Marines and a sailor were killed by Mohammad Youssef Abdulazeez, a 24-year-old Kuwait-born native of Tennessee, during an attack Thursday on a strip mall recruiting center and a Navy facility that is being investigated as an act of terrorism.

Abdulazeez fired into the front of the recruiting station but there were no casualties. The five servicemembers were killed during an attack on the Navy Operational Support Center. A Navy officer and a Marine reportedly fired at the gunman, although it is unclear why they were armed. It is against Defense Department policy for anyone other than military police or law enforcement to carry weapons on federal property.

"I'm sure the citizens mean well, but we cannot assume this in every case and we do not want to advocate this behavior," according to the Army Command Operations Center-Security Division letter, which was authenticated by the service.

My first thought when I heard about the volunteer security was "good idea". Then soon after I thought "Oh great, perfect scapegoats to take the heat off the Jihadis". Yup, they got played royally. :picard-facepalm:

Not once have I heard him called an immigrant let alone an Islamic extremist.

Consider a natural disaster such as an earthquake, tornado or flood.

Americans flock to volunteer to help and be apart of an effort to those in danger or at risk. These true Americans are often praised for their contributions of their selfless acts of kindness during a national emergency. So why now are they being cut down in providing a service for security to the men and women in uniform that actually are in harms way due to this regimes reckless and irresponsible lack of consideration of our (un) armed service personnel and practically go to the ends of the earth to provide security for third world criminal bottom feeders!

It's part of the Jade Helm exercise. Separate the citizens from the military. No more baking cookies for the troops and the citizens are seen as a threat. AI initiates the "fire" order.

By design.
