New Report Proves US Law Enforcement Preparing for Rioting on a National Scale

Anti-Media – by Claire Bernish

Fascism doesn’t often sweep in overnight and take over some hapless nation’s government; rather, it gradually seeps into the cultural fabric — as is quietly taking place all around the globe, evidenced by an upsurge in sales of riot equipment that has gone largely unnoticed.

A new report from analysts with industry research group, Sandler Research, forecasts the Global Riot Control System Market for the next four years — but beyond a burgeoning market to parallel the expanding global police state, it appears world governments are also keenly aware of civilian discontent. Sandler predicts the market will have an annual growth of 3.5 percent, and makes a telling juxtaposition, emphases added, involving the United States:  

“Law enforcement agencies around the world are the biggest market for riot control systems. This market is expected to generate revenues of over USD 3.5 billion by the end of 2020. Countries such as the U.S., Iran, Egypt, Russia, China, and Thailand have started procuring riot control equipment and are investing heavily in [non-lethal weapons]. Moreover, special vehicles that are equipped with water cannon and reservoirs have been designed for security personnel, for use in areas of conflict to handle large crowds and demonstration. Demand for such equipment is expected to rise during the next few years.

Note the last sentence in its truncated time frame.

Specifically, the analysts continue:

“In North America, the prominent markets are Canada and the U.S. and law enforcement agencies in these nations are best equipped with the upgraded weapons. The militarization of the police department and other law enforcement agencies in the Americas has encouraged the use of advanced riot control equipment.”

While swaths of the country debate the finer points of which lesser evil should take the helm of the corporate plutocracy, various U.S. law enforcement agencies have been gearing up for the virtually inevitable unrest both during and following those elections.

Militarized police forces have become de rigueur, even in the nation’s smallest towns — but arming law enforcement with the weapons of war, rather than protecting civilians, has birthed a chasm of distrust and animosity on both sides. It isn’t as if this equipment is being produced by a marketplace intent on keeping civilians safe from an ostensible outside threat.

As the report, which does not offer a breakdown of specific agencies it might be referring to (though may in its body which can be purchased for $2,500 here), definitively states:

“Law enforcement agencies use riot control systems to maintain the public order and safety and to enforce laws. They are used to disperse, control, and arrest people involved in riots and protests. Riot control systems include lethal and non-lethal weapons (NWLs), body-worn cameras, armored vehicles, and communications systems.”

As if released in conjunction with one another, a report by Lloyd’s intones the necessity of preparedness as mass civil unrest can not only spark without prior warning, but flare outward, unpredictably — what the insurer calls “Political Violence Contagion.” According to the report, instances of political violence “contagion (pandemics) have become more frequent, and the contagion effect ever more rapid and impactful.”

Considering massive worldwide demonstrations in the U.S. and elsewhere — as people finally grasp how corrupt governments actually are — it becomes apparent in these reports the politicians and their enforcement agencies comprehend the greatest threat to their power. As caucuses andprimaries fall into chaos — and the City of Cleveland gears up for the Republican National Convention — voters and nonvoters alike harbor greater disillusionment than ever before.

Cleveland, whose police are currently under federal oversight following a Department of Justice probe that found a general pattern of brutality, plans to spend around $20 million to beef up security measures for the RNC. While part of the sum will focus on training, personnel expenditures, and the like, Vox reported 40 percent will be earmarked for “equipment and supplies” — including, in part, 2,000 sets of full-body riot gear. Additionally, if not ominously, the city “has put out bids for, among other things, 24 sets of ballistic body armor, 300 patrol bikes, and more than 3.7 miles of interlocking steel barriers, all of which can be used to curtail protestors,” according to Vox.

Together, the reports paint a dire prediction — not as much for its illustration of a world in chaos, but for its intimation authoritarian actors may act aggressively to quash even positive and peaceful change by the rest of us.

    1. Does Mx = Mexican?

      Regardless, if they want to kill “our” police, then I sure as hell won’t get in their way.

    2. You F’N a$$hole, Holly LaRoque. You don’t come here and spew out a comment like that and go hide under your “blanky” dammit! You can join the conversation but this is bullsquat!

  1. Kewl….I guess that makes them preppers too..!
    Looks like we finally have something in common with law enforcement.

  2. It’s true – I found out the hard way that the Sheriff’s Dept of my town is not required to protect flesh and blood citizens, and even had a Sheriff’s Deputy tell me that fact. I was astounded to say the least.

  3. I’m very concerned that if the Police start shooting at the people, the people will eventually start shooting back. Since when did protesting become a crime?

    1. Instant Martial Law. No need to “add water” even!

      This would fit the usurper’s plan quite well. Couldn’t work better if he planned it; good thing he has brought the people together on race relations.

  4. Was reading some crap about how the next POTUS will pick the next SCOTUS justice (likely more than one I suspect). If that is Hillary it will put an end to the 2a.

    In the comments, one guy threw out the usual ‘come and take them’ line. One reply said the armored vehicles and such would go door to door like Australia and other nations. He was met with some goon saying the cops and military would not support/ engage in such actions.

    Likely the cops & military will be up to the task. If not, foreign (ie: blue helmets) troops will be called in, eager to assist with the punishment of the US.

    1. Nearly all military and especially police will turn their weapons on Americans when ordered to do so, just as they always have throughout US history. But there’s no need to wait around in one’s house for the armored vehicles to show up. And if there are enough citizens who TRULY believe in “Liberty or Death” and REFUSE to surrender, tyranny simply can’t win.

      1. While I agree that most cops will turn their weapons on us, I disagree about the mi!itary. I did 15 years. My son in law is currently a combat medic. They feel VERY disenfranchised currently and are ready for a leader to scream Revolution. Not all but most. Some will follow the PTB. Most will literally take their toys and go home to join their families and friends. The toys and the knowledge will be welcomed by the Revolution

        1. I don’t doubt that at least a few soldiers will refuse. They will certainly be welcomed, along with any inside knowledge and/or toys they bring to the table.

          Still, we can’t ignore the lessons of history. There have been many incidents in which the military has been ordered to subjugate Americans: the Bonus Army, the Ludlow Massacre, Kent State, gun-grabbing after Hurricane Katrina, etc. I’m not aware of any case in which significant numbers of troops refused these orders.

          Further, we can note that military intelligence (e.g., the NSA, spy satellites) is used against Americans on a routine basis. The military frequently trains with police TWAT teams, and the relationship sometimes extends to close cooperation — that was the case at Ruby Ridge and the Waco Massacre (where Delta Force served in an advisory role). Few if any in the military seem bothered about this.

          We also have DARPA and other military research institutions continuing to develop freedom-destroying technologies that are inevitably used against Americans here at home after being directed against foreigners resisting US occupation.

          Putting it all together, I’m sure you can understand why the picture doesn’t look good to me. Almost none of the government’s troops are doing anything to defend the Constitution in spite of their oath, and few seem to have any objection to fighting in the government’s wars of aggression overseas. Coupled with the US military’s nearly unbroken record of obeying orders to act against US citizens, it’s very hard for me to believe the future will be much different. But I hope I’m wrong, and I’m sure there will be exceptional individuals regardless.

  5. It’s been understood for quite sometime now that the police were never put in place to protect and serve the public as most have thought. They are to protect and serve their overlords from us plebes. (Think about that, if their cars still adorn that phrase). Also they are put in place to enforce codes and laws that the overlords wish to enforce upon us plebes. They are above the law, as witnessed on so many occasions. There is nowhere in the BOR nor Constitution, that allows for a police force nor a standing army, which is what they are. They, as the poser gov, are an enemy force and occupation. They are not here to help you or prevent a crime. They are not your friend.

  6. The meaning of police has two. The english language has been very
    occulted to confuse the masses.
    1.) Police = Policy
    They enforce policies not natural law.
    2.) Police = Poll Ice.
    Referring to the Masonic poles and Jacobs ladder.
    Because when the masonic poles ….left and right have ice on them you cannot climb up them to seek enlightenment.
    They are stuck in a certain mindset they cannot climb up out of.

  7. Cleveland does not have 20 million dollars. Who is going to pay for this if the entire society is falling apart?

    More fear please…….a heaping whole bunch of fear to keep us in line.
