    Stay out of DFW this weekend.
    It is a training area for every department with a gun.
    From the page:
    The North Central Texas Region is conducting a comprehensive multi-discipline, multi-jurisdictional full-scale exercise. The overarching goal for this exercise is to increase proficiency levels in identified target capabilities and enhance regional response to large-scale incidents. This exercise is designed to assess the region’s ability to successfully respond to and manage multiple terrorist events and other emergencies occurring simultaneously throughout the region.

    Don't be alarmed, they are just training.

    while i dont agree with the last ones they did with MG firing from helicopters, its training like this that does help with many issues. compare training from when Columbine went down to school shootings now. were not looking at one on one incidents any more, its people blowing up marathon runners then leaving the scene.

    Ft Hood has mock towns. However, part of the training is getting the guys used to maneuvering in their own environment. They did one similar to this in Austin a few months back. I just wish we could get more photos from these.

    There SHOULD be enough armed citizens in any Texas city to cut down any terrorists that show up. If there aren't, it's a failure on our part.

    I don't believe for one second that they are running these drills to help combat terrorism. I believe there is only one purpose and that is to make sure they are set up to come after US citizens if they decide to resist the next installment of socialism.

    Flying around in helicopters and firing MGs? How many freakin' terrorists are they planning to have show up?

    And as far as "how much better" they've done, all you have to do is look at the mess in Boston that 2 guys created. The cops and Homeland Security tore the town apart, violated hundreds of people's rights, and still couldn't get both suspects until some guy spotted one in his boat and called it in. Even then it took a terribly long time to get him out.

    Are you talking about the one where it was leaked that intel indicated an actual terrorist plot, which was later denied?
    I would be suspicious of any drill going down in my neck of the woods.

    The exercise is being run by a company called the Cytel Group, Inc.
    Here is an article from a volunteer that participated in their Urban Shield exercise in Austin.

    Boston PD is convinced that the Cytel Group was instrumental in getting them prepared before the marathon bombing. It is on their homepage:
