"ill say this much for you people....i was in the army for 8 years and my job was being a blackhawk helicopter gunner. never in my career did we EVER go into a populated city for any type of gun related training. i was stationed in savannah GA so u can guess that it was nothng but city. wed have to fly out a good ways to an aerial gunnery range to get qualified. if they are using blank fire over the city, its because they are preparing to fire on city dwellers.the army trains how it fights". . . .

This is justvtraining for use outside the United States. The Army would never fire on a US City.

Not to worry. The news reporter on the vid assured me:
1. It’s required training.
2. They are for preparing for overseas engagements.
3. They’re making sure their equipment is in good condition.

Whew. It’s good to know there are so many legitimate reasons for this drill. For a moment or two, I was worried.

I don’t think there just happened to be a Miami Heat game going on in the midst of this training exercise around the arena. I think the simulated “event” they’re preparing for is an attack on the Super Bowl.

Police say a military training exercise is planned for Miami

MIAMI — Miami-Dade police are warning residents that military helicopters may be buzzing their neighborhoods sometime soon.

But it's no reason to panic. Police said Monday that multiple agencies will be providing support for a joint military training exercise somewhere in the area.

So does that mean that I can practice too, by shooting blanks back at them ?

which tells me THEY ARE THE ONES PLANNING an attack during the superbowl, expect lot’s of false flag op’s to cement their desire for Gun Confiscation with the American People.
THis must be done soon, before the bottom falls out of the Country. The debt deal is where it will happen, Obama wants to shut down the government and force the 50 million on food stamps to start rioting and violence. That will give him the ammunition he needs to declare Martial Law. I need a new tin foil hat.

Detroit summer of 67, took us there to fly over the riots. Entire 17AHC, from Ft.Riley, Kansas. Others on here were sent in with ground units. It has happened before.

The federal government is funneling all kinds of money into these local police departments. Payback will come. The news report did state that this was a joint exercise with the police and military.

Don’t know how relevant this is, but Delaware is a rather odd duck when it comes to County level authority. I was born and raised in Newcastle County (the northernmost) and can never once recall seeing anything like a Sheriff’s deputy: only State Troopers.

Delaware is a small state, but it’s three individual counties are so big it makes the notion of “local” law enforcement largely irrelevant.

Not saying this isn’t something nefarious, but it seems to me taking the “arrest authority” from County level guys *might* be roughly analogous to Sarah Palin taking the same authority from the old pre-statehood Alaska militia.

The drill is happening live during the report. The reporter says at the :33 mark, “the Miami Heat game is about to be let out at the Triple-A, which is nearby”.

The Heat played in Boston this afternoon. The video isn’t from this afternoon. It’s probably from Friday night, when the Heat were hosting the Pistons.

So, I guess it is OK to practice anti rotor-wing exercises. You never know when terrorists might seize control of hippityhoppers and start shooting at taxpayers with confiscated NY state gunz.

BTW, anti-air against hippityhoppers is quite easy no noise, no smoke, no heat signature.

See, we can both scare each other...........

Which is in New Orleans this year and New Jersey next year. Which Super Bowl are they preparing for?

I did a YouTube search and found several videos of military training in Miami over the past few years involving Blackhawks and “gunfire” ... from May 8, 2012, April 18, 2011. Also, on the 25th of this month in LA, and in Chicago Aptil 17, 2012.

This isn’t new. It is a little disconcerting though ...

A large-scale drill centered around an indoor arena one week before a Super Bowl played in a closed-roof stadium would suggest they’re preparing for New Orleans. I imagine they’d train differently for a situation in an open-air stadium.

I’m not predicting an attack. That’s just my best guess as to what they’re training for.

Really not that much unusual about it -- drills over populated areas have been going on forever -- EXCEPT for the apparent sound of automatic weapons fire. Since there were no flashes, and evidently no empty casings, was the sound even coming from the helos? Was it an automatic air-gun training weapon as one comment suggests? Whether blanks or airgun, if the sounds were coming from the choppers they have the same oppressive effect on the civilian population. I am surprised no drivers freaked out and wrapped cars around each other on that highway, which makes me suspicious the reports were not from the Apaches.

I find it very curious that we can hear the gunfire very distinctly, but not the helicopters themselves. I crewed the OH-6 and later the OH-58 in the late 60’s and early 70’s and helicopters are not the quietest aircraft around.

So who's paranoid?

The highest comment when I saw it first was from one Mr. Raymond Wilson:

ll say this much for you people....i was in the army for 8 years and my job was being a blackhawk helicopter gunner. never in my career did we EVER go into a populated city for any type of gun related training. i was stationed in savannah GA so u can guess that it was nothng but city. wed have to fly out a good ways to an aerial gunnery range to get qualified. if they are using blank fire over the city, its because they are preparing to fire on city dwellers.the army trains how it fights.

Interesting.

If they're shooting blanks, they're probably raining brass shell casings down on the populace. That could cause some damage, all by itself.

Also, it would be interesting to examine one of the shell cases. Blank cartridges that I've seen have the case mouth crimped closed.
