Document: Army Preparing to Use Lethal Force Against “Unarmed Civilians” During “Full Scale Riots” in U.S.

Training manual outlines "sniper response" during crowd control operations

A document released by the U.S. Army details preparations for “full scale riots” within the United States during which troops may be forced to engage in a “lethal response” to deal with unruly crowds of demonstrators.

The appearance of the document amidst growing unrest in Ferguson, Missouri, with the National Guard now being called in to deal with the disorder, is an ominous coincidence.

The 132-page document, titled U.S. Army Techniques Publication 3-39.33: Civil Disturbances (PDF), was written in April 2014 and recently obtained by Public Intelligence.

The document makes it clear that the techniques detailed therein are to be applied both outside andinside the “continental United States (CONUS)” in the event of “unruly and violent crowds” where it is “necessary to quell riots and restore public order.”

The training manual outlines scenarios under which, “Civil unrest may range from simple, nonviolent protests that address specific issues, to events that turn into full-scale riots.”

The most shocking aspect of the document is the fact that it describes the deployment of a “lethal response” directed against “unarmed civilians,” including “sniper response” and “small arms direct fire.”

Under the heading “sniper response,” the document states, “Ensure that target leaders or troublemakers are targeted,” in addition to a passage which states, “Exploit the psychological effect of an attack.”

Bad news for THEM. Got any idea how many retired or discharged snipers are now among us?
Go ahead and start shooting at shoot back.
Planning to shoot at UNARMED civilians??! Really?
The riots may well be over food and water, or electricity (for heat and cooking). And our "leaders" have plans for killing us?
Nothing like having it in writing to eliminate any of those "tin-foil hat" retorts, huh?
Its not 'conspiracy' nuts or "tin-foil hat" stuff when they come right out and TELL YOU what they are planning to do.
Keep cheering.

Do the commenters understand the magnitude of this revelation?

Are you lazy and stupid?

Do you know nothing about history?

Power corrupts. Absolute power corrupts absolutely. Tyranny is here.
