North Carolina National Guard Rapid Reaction Force Civil Unrest Training Photos

Public Intelligence

The following photos depict soldiers from the 252nd Combined Arms Battalion training in June for their role as a “rapid reaction force” capable of responding anywhere in the state of North Carolina within “four to eight hours with additional forces arriving within 24 to 36 hours.”  The same unit trained in March to respond “to an emergency ahead of federal assets by providing site security, establishing roadblocks or checkpoints, and assisting civilian authorities in controlling civil disturbances.”  

The exercises depicted below were held from June 10-14 at an abandoned shopping mall and a water treatment facility in Charlotte.  Soldiers trained to suppress protesters who perform a sit-in as part of a fictional group called “The Pink Panthers.”  According to the North Carolina National Guard, the exercise at the water treatment facility tests soldiers’ “ability to use nonlethal force to disperse a crowd of aggressors.”  Photos of the exercise show soldiers operating from Be On the Look Out (BOLO) notices with the identities of specific individuals in the crowd, listed as “AIN Members,” that are to be targeted for arrest.

CHARLOTTE, N.C. – Soldiers of the North Carolina National Guard train for Rapid Reaction Force duty at the Catawba River Pump Station here today. The training scenario tests the Soldiers ability to use nonlethal force to disperse a crowd of aggressors from a water plant. This training prepares the Soldiers to support state and local first responders and county emergency management agencies. The RRF is a quick reaction team that, on order, is deployable anywhere in North Carolina within 24 to 36 hours of a critical event.

  1. LOL!!! I live here and hope the populace is well armed and completely motivated when the jewi$h oligarch controlled NC ‘national guard’ (?) comes to town. 😉 Anyone who serves i$rael in America deserves the most complete ‘counter measures’.

    Eastland Mall was the top mall in the SE US before ‘fair housing’ and ‘illegal immigration’ shut down the neighborhood.

  2. They need to practice arresting people attending a sit-in? Not very prepared, are they?

    Their most likely encounter will involve people who are standing up and shooting at them. Where are the protestors throwing the Molitov cocktails that will melt all that body armor right onto their flesh?

    These fools are doomed.

    1. Being they serve the jewi$h oligarchs who pledge allegaince to i$rael they will get what they deserve. No pity for traitors. 😉

  3. These guys better do the math, and figure out who’s got the greater numbers.

    Otherwise, their @sses are toast.

  4. From some vids I seen of these exercises the poor fools doing the training are dis-organized and have NO SKILLS. Most of them dont seem to even walk like those of us that have served. Booters/Newbs perhaps. My guess is they are Div Commanders for the civilian obama army getting a crash course so they can not look stupid when they train others.
    I hope they use many helmet types. My goal is one blue and one of every other kind too.
