Army prepares for use of force against peaceful protesters in new training manual

Target Areas

The document details where to strike a protester for maximum trauma

The combination of the riots in Ferguson, Missouri, and the militarization of U.S. law enforcement have raised a lot of concern among many citizens. Chief among these concerns is that one day the U.S. military will be used against peaceful citizens of the United States. Well there may be some truth to this fear according to the website Infowars. Apparently in April of 2014 the U.S. Army released U.S. Army Techniques Publication 3-39.33: Civil Disturbances which details using lethal force against peaceful protesters.

The 132 page document reveals sniper protocol and use of small arms fire against peaceful protesters. Instructions given to snipers include “Ensure that target leaders or troublemakers are targeted,” and “Exploit the psychological effect of an attack.” In regards to using small arms fire against crowds, the manual calls for first using small caliber bullets and escalating to larger caliber bullets. The manual also includes charts on where to hit protesters for increased trauma with riot batons.

Most interesting and perhaps most chilling are the references to civil disturbances caused by “Ethnic Hatred” and “Community unrest (that) results in urban conflicts that arise from highly emotional social and economic issues.”

According to the publication, the training manual is designed to be used on both foreign soil and inside the United States.

    T.R.U.E S.T.O.R.Y …
    IT WAS ON THE NEWS .. outside of dallas east texas .. 3 months ago , police was called to a house due to some domestic issues with a neighbor of a man , as they entered the drive way….and 1 cop was alone he stepped out the car and a dog was standing there barking the owner was a few feet away and the officer ask him to get the dog who was about 9 feet away, the dog was smart enough to know not to go upon the guy or charge him .. the dog just backed up barking …. before the owner couldj walk accrosse the yard to get the dog the policmen shot the dog in the heart . on single shot bought the collie mix to his side he lay there the owner runs up histerical ,asking him why did you shoot him he wasnt close enough to bit you …. the white police told the white man cause he leaped at me the officer said , the man told other cops who showed up his dog was killed for no reason …. there is a law that if a dog get so many feet and bark you can shoot but they have to launch first .. in this case the dog didnt launch .. so why did he shoot him . my point is A DOG GET MORE RESPECT THAT A CHILD

    so justic is not dead we have to stay hoeful for this moral is a dog can get swift justice and a man cannot .. this cop ended up locked up bailed out and stands triel ..
    thatis what has to happen …
