Counter-Insurgency Warfare in Boise?

William Norman Grigg

In an op-ed column that suppurates condescension, Boise Police Chief Mike Masterson defended his department’s acquisition of a Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected combat vehicle (MRAP). Among the reasons why procurement of this “Free” combat vehicle — that is, one paid for by tax victims in other cities — is necessary, according to Masterson, because “guns made exclusively for the military are available in society for general use.” Like most statists, Masterson suffers from an acute irony deficiency.

Boise is one of several Idaho cities and towns — including minuscule Preston, which is practically crime-free — where police departments have obtained MRAPs, which were designed for counter-insurgency operations in Iraq and Afghanistan. Chief Masterson insists that Boise residents who are alarmed over the prospect of police militarization are focusing on what he calls “the symbolism of a free vehicle.” The MRAP, he maintains, will protect his officers — whom he calls “peacekeepers” — from “high-caliber bullets and bombs” in what he calls “an increasingly violent society.”

This depiction of Boise as a proto-Fallujah can charitably be described as statistically implausible — or not-so-charitably described as a symptom of clinical paranoia. Boise’s crime rate is roughly two-thirds the national average of cities of its size, and has fallen every year since 2000. Masterson grants that Boise “hasn’t made national news for murder and mayhem,” but maintains that his department should up-armor itself, just in case. After all, there may be people living there who “intend to harm our government and its most visible forms of authority” — meaning the tax-devouring costumed functionaries under Masterson’s command.

Once we peel away the persiflage about “protecting and serving” the public, Masterson’s case for acquiring an MRAP is rooted in the mindset of counter-insurgency warfare, in which police see themselves as an embattled salient of “order” surrounded by incipiently violent people who must be over-awed and compelled to submit. That mindset is as deeply entrenched in Idaho as it is elsewhere. The slogan of the December 2007 Idaho POST Academy graduating class was: “Don’t suffer from PTSD — go out and cause it.” That motto was chosen by the class president who, predictably, was a military veteran.”

675 Imagine I tell the fair citizens on how to render that POS machine utterly useless in less than 15 min. I suppose ol rough rider dickwad masterson might piss himself.

75145 Sure, if it's free, why not have it. Only couple of questions, Chief:

1. what is the annual cost of maintaining the vehicle?
2. does this vehicle require any additional training of the personnel?
3. if it does, what is the cost of the training? both initial and future recurring re-training, if any?
4. will it require hiring any additional personnel?
5. Let's say, the worst happens, and there's shooter in the school, or anywhere else. Please describe, exactly how will the vehicle help? will you ride it into the school?

@dougo: "something"
@nonymoustrm,(therealmccoy): pray tell.
@nonymous, 75145, ..... I'm sure your loyalty will be commended (or, at least, you'll think it has..)

81161 What is wrong with you austrianists ?
Don't you recognize a nazi-fascist when you se one ?

Political anarchism and 'libertarianism' are incompatible .
'libertarians' are jungle-law capitalists, puppets for the banksters .

18476 I have wondered for years how the final stages of total occupation would come to pass in the once-free nation of States.
I see now that it is the method of the true fascists to use 'fear' and 'false flag operations', combined with indoctrination by entities in media and 'education' to actually ACCEPT this military occupation (and eventually, but rapidly) the total enslavement of the local populaces within the cities.
Well, Boise State football isn't doing so well this year. Cyrus has 'twerked', and 'Black Friday' sales have already started. These events are MUCH MORE IMPORTANT than the introduction of military equipment by the new militarized 'police' (formerly used in OCCUPATION operations in Iraq and Afghanistan).

50134 Citizens of Boise better *not* catch him, collaborating with foreign shock troopers, then. One can catch quite a view from a street light, I've heard...!

75145 @18476, there's novel "Flashback" of Dan Simmons, it pretty much tells what the final stages will be.

70193 I don't understand how a conservative, liberty-loving, state like Idaho tolerates a twit like this as police chief of one of their towns. Do the citizens not put pressure on the town's council or other politicos about such garbage as this?

7676 History really does repeat itself...straight out of the Kissinger/Brzezinski how to create a Nazi/Fascist State and keep the SHEEPLE DUMBED DOWN playbook! First, create the SA-DHS, next Militarize the local Police, destroy and replace the Sheriff, Loot the host country and destroy thr value of their currency...wait for the FALSE FLAG to seize ultimate power....just like the Reichstag Fire! WAKE UP SHEEPLE!

672 This just go's to prove what a little boy the chief really is. He MUST have his little toy. Now little boy, make sure you take your little toy home to mommy, you little brat.

72171 Another POS toy for these eunuchs to replace their lack of professionalism & their "manhood". A real urban warrior can render these attack vehicles into death traps in less than 7 minutes. I am happy they get these clunkers; they sure as hell won't float in the Boise River. What is the most bothersome is the taxpayer paying for these toys; no responsibility or accountability for the upkeep or maintenance. Something that the First Responders of Boise are well known Nation-wide for their lack of.

72171 The most sick of the sickest is the attitude addressed by the Post Graduating Class President given at the end of this Article. I'll NEVER support local LEO for that revolting comment from Post. Time to turn the tables on arrogant & ignorant bastards.

72171 Just another short bus candidate that missed the short bus. Maybe, just maybe the Chief is going to invade Butchie Otter's Chinese Free Trade Zone south of Boise. I did here there are Zombies wandering around the local WalMart after midnight.

6658 Where can I get some of the weaponry available to the military ? The people trying to justify this militarization are lying their a$$es off. Tell me where I can CHEAPLY and EASILY acquire .50 caliber automatic weapons and mini-guns which shoot thousands of rounds a minute. These weapons are beyond the reach of most people because of the cost , not to mention the licensing and registration and possibility of home inspection.

77247 They confuse the issue by using words like "FREE". What statists like the chief want you to overlook:

- They throw around the word ‘FREE’, hoping you connect it to FREEDOM. This ‘gift’ is not about FREEdom, it is about enslaving.

- It is IMMORAL to accept a gift designed to ENSLAVE, with intent to USE IT

- That FREE vehicle, was created using STOLEN funds (ala taxpayers)

- Acceptance of this vehicle is an act of FIELTY, with the police showing their loyalty to their bankster globalist parasite predator dark Luciferian Masters, and NOT to the people they supposedly serve (you and I)

FIELTY: The state of owing one's service (particularly of a soldier, warrior, knight, rider) to a king, queen, or other ruler.

- Make no mistake, this WILL be used against the populace. Those 'in charge' intend to and will soon make laws so offensive and oppressive and immoral, that you have no choice but to fight back. They know that. It is what they are preparing for. They want to be ready to put any resistance to their tyranny and control over your life down.

This is exactly the same pattern the Nazis used. Everything they did was LEGAL, even though it was IMMORAL. Soon here too, laws that are IMMORAL will be passed, and the police intend to follow orders to enforce those IMMORAL laws against you and your family. This type of equipment is just one of many ways they hope to gain a power differential against any who would resist such immorality.

You will be forced to comply!

The time to resist is now, before it comes to violence. Demand they return all military equipment that will be used to enslave you, before they activate it and things go hot!
