HOUSTON (KTRK) -- SkyEye 13 HD was over the south side where at first look, it appears there's a massive SWAT scene happening.
People have been calling police, as well as our newsroom, saying they're hearing gunshots in the area of Scott and Airport. It turns out, the Army says, it's a multi-agency training drill. They're doing it at the old Carnegie High School.

“Machine gun fire from military helicopters flying over downtown Miami Fl. (Just a Drill!)”
Yesterday the SAME in Miami, today this. And 7,000 new AR’s for DHS, lots of ammo, huuuge new bat-cave under the WH....
U wouldh have 2b a TOTAL IDIOT not to read the tea-leaves...
First Miami...now this?????
I emailed our two US senators (Cruz / Cornyn) and asked why this drill is happening in an urban setting.
All the divisions of World War II, from both sides, couldn’t disarm 100 million Americans, so this is an exercise in futility and a waste of good money.
Good. There needs to be answers!
So what? Unless every one of those 100 million has access to a lot of ammunition, you are pissing in the wind.
Don't think for a minute that Obama and his owners don't know this.
Have you been reading the articles the last 4 and a half years about the run on guns and ammunition, six hour waits to buy a ticket to a gun show, etc, etc? I was talking about the roughly 100 million gun owners, not the 320 million toatal population. Have you seen this?
What Good Can a Handgun Do Against An Army?
Until there are answers regarding these ‘exercises’, they appear to be nothing but a show of force aimed at the American people.
Someone’s got some explaining to do.
I think the Administration is trying to provoke an incident to justify a jackboot response. Keep yer powder dry. I don’t think the US military are a match for 100 million armed bubbas. Look what a few Taliban has done to humble a modern military force, and the Russians, too.
The way to kill these urban training exercises quickly is to create an Internet rumor that the soldiers are training for a ground invasion of Iran, and urban combat conquest of Tehran followed by martial law.
They are practicing for an invasion of Iran.
Such a rumor would freak out the Washington weaklings, who would demand and immediate halt to these exercises.
How far is Houston from Waco?
This makes me think that the 2nd Amendment should reasonably allow SA-7s.
“Someones got some explaining to do.”
I agree with this, but think this through.
If it is a show of force to intimidate Americans, why are they intimidating leftists in big liberal cities? Maybe it’s not obuma’s people. Maybe it’s something else, so let’s get some explanations before we drive the car off the road and into a ditch.
What a great idea! Get that to Alex Jones! to Glenn Beck! to Rush Limbaugh! The obamanoid democrips are training for invasion of Iran! If we can make it go viral, the sonofabitch in the White Hut will be bowing to his Mooselimb brotherhood demands to stop this at once!
Just shine a few lasers up at the Helos. They won’t know if the laser is on the end of an AR15 or what. Watch em take evasive maneuvers, and it effs up their attention to flying duties.
There are several ways to counter a campaign of terror being administered by DHS.
Even Yamamoto said that there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass.
Yamamoto wasn't a self-deluded fool who was given everything he had.
Driving a wedge between the Military and the Constitutionalists?
And about that litmus test rumor: “Are you willing to fire upon US citizens” ...
And the next question is will the citizen fire back? 1861 to 1865 answers that.
Personally, I think the American soldier will frag the officer who orders him to shoot on the American Citizen.
Well organized, determined Romans routinely crushed enemies who outnumbered them. Your imaginary 100 million Americans are not organized and the number is highly inflated.
Napoleon used the formula that 1/3 were with him, 1/3 against him, and 1/3 simply didn't care. So yes that gives you a 100 million. But, there is that pesky 100 million who are against you. That and a professional army is a big obstacle.
Maybe in Massachusetts, but come down here to the South & Southwest and I imagine you’ll think differently, especially Texas. The Romans were very well drilled and trained, and yes, we have people like that in our present day military, but I don’t see very many of them fighting their neighbors. The Roman legions mostly fought outlanders or slave rebellions, towards whom they had little or no empathy. And if it is so easy to quash a revolt or rebellion, please explain Iraq, the IRA, Afghanistan, Vietnam, the Moros, Chechnia, etc., etc...
Insurgent warfare hasn’t worked out real well for the U.S. military over the last 50 years.
Look what a few Taliban are doing to humble the modern American and NATO forces. 100 million of us are disorganized now, but they know their native terrain better than the military and will lie in ambush to easily put them down. Caesar had to import Germans to fight against Romans, because Roman Soldiers would not do that. The American Soldier will frag the officers who order them to kill Americans.
Those pesky 100 million are supposedly not gun-owners. What are they going to do, build spears, bows and arrows and zip guns?
Watched the full 12+ minutes.
It included multiple gov vehicles apparently from different unidentified agencies.
At least two USArmy helos, which land on the school's field at 5:30 on the tape then upload troops who take off hanging out of the sides of the helicopters, in full view while flying low over surrounding homes of a neighborhood.
A Ryder truck parked in front of a school exit/entrance at 8:25. Which then drives away.
Multiple firearms lined up on a walkway at 10:01 where people appear to be hanging out? (one guy even dances for the camera. o.k....because this is sooo funny/S!).
On the early morning news, Channel 5 out of Nashville announced that soldiers from Ft. Campbell would be doing this over parts of Nashville tonight and the next couple of nights. They said they were giving the warning so residents wouldn’t freak out.
Haven’t heard a peep out of any of the Nashville stations tonight. I guess they were told to stay away.
we learned right from the gitgo that a photo-op for Air Force One by the Statue of Liberty was more important than scaring the bejeezus out of Manhattan
Conservatives love to laugh at Massachsuetts and figure it’s a lost cause.
Over this last weekend there was a gun show in the Boston suburbs, and the line to get in the first morning was 200 yards long.
That’s no exaggeration, but a firm figure.
Is anyone worried? Gee, the military leaders Obama dumped haven’t even had a chance to clean their desks out before firing drills on American people. I can not imagine what people thought watching this happening at a school, they had to be mortified after Sandy Hook.
It’s more training for when they make the final push to throw out the constitution. Makes perfect sense to do it in cities. The Commies in the big cities will simply accept what they are told about it and move on. Conservative areas would be in uproar, well unless Republicans dominated government and said it was training for the war on terror.
Besides Harris county (Houston) went to Obama by something like only 2 votes, not really a Commie stronghold.
You are sadly ignorant of how the Obama ghetto follower is armed. He is armed with unregistered semiautomatic firearms. That goes for the illegal immigrant crowd also. When is the last time you read they used stone-age weapons?
Exactly. BHO2 is trying to gin up an unplanned response by Patriots to his multiople activities.
Facebook has a lot of LEOs commenting on the Martial Law training that they’re conducting along with Homeland Security.
Most of them have sites on the side of the slide.
Won’t matter, regardless, and most of that 100 million aren’t armed ghetto rats but hippies with 22 LRs cause it makes them feel manly.
What about the risk of a accident during one of these sessions. Who is liable if a chopper fails mechanically and goes down in a suburban neighborhood? Do those planning these operations take into consideration all the possibilities in the event of a major screw up on their part?
Yes, but the 0bama ghetto gangbangers travel in packs, selecting individual defenseless victims (more points if they're white & elderly) to terrorize with guns & physical assults. Once determined whites start firing back at them in earnest, they will scatter like rats & vermin. Gangbangers & socialist lefties are never used to anyone fighting back, and when it happens, the gangbangers & lefties will lose!
A lot of vulnables live in that area.
Can’t even buy 22 ammo where I live. There were a few
birdshot 12 gauge but nothing else. Those birdshot loads can be easily turned into slugs by waxing them. Look on youtube to see how easy they are converted. Waxers, or Wax shot 12 gauge.
German snipers used 22 rifles as sniper weapons, did we make fun of them? The UZI also used 22 lR ammo.
I posted a vanity this evening about the subject.
A relative who regularly uses Facebook noted the large number of comments concerning the coordinated training excercises for Martial Law by LEOs and Homeland Security.
I noticed the events in Miami, and now Houston. It all looks peculiar, especially the timing.
I remember a few years ago when black helicopters hovered over a Dairy Ashford high school here in Houston.
As long as you re happy believing that. They will kill us joyfully when they remember their employer knows where THEIR family lives.
The most brutal and bloody wars in Rome were between fellow Romans. After the Social War, and then the Civil war between Caesar and Pompey, Rome had a civil war so often it became expected.
It was very common for a legion to attack a fellow legion that it had fought side by side with a short time before. There are records of father and son fighting each other on the field.
They followed orders. That is what soldiers do. Expecting that the US military will not kill US citizens is foolish. They have a long history of following orders. Look at the attack on the Bonus army, crowd control with machine guns (Gatling) during the Civil War, and Katrina of you don’t believe me.
