Call me paranoid if you like. I will retort with disturbing facts that make their jaws drop faster than a Kardashian on her knees in front of a tv executive.
ST. LOUIS, MO (KTVI) – St. Louis Police say you shouldn’t be frightened if you see Army vehicles in the city. The U.S. Army is conducting training in St. Louis city neighborhoods during the next week.
There are dozens of army trucks, humvees and armed vehicles on a parking lot along Goodfellow.
They are there every day at the US Army Reserve Center. But St. Louis police say that some army vehicles may be driving through neighborhoods for the next week.
It is part of army training that will be going on until June 28th.
FOX 2 has made several calls to army offices in St. Louis and Washington, D.C. to get more information about the training, and why it is being held here.
Phone calls have not been returned. However, people who live and work in the area think the army training is a good idea.
The army is starting training in the sixth police district on Thursday. Vehicles like the one pictured in this article will be roving the streets.
It strikes me as a little odd that while the military has literally millions of acres and playgrounds like this to practice their urban tactics in, why they need to come to a real neighborhood and desensitize the public to the sight of troops rolling through your hood.
