World Police and Fire Games - Anti-Terrorist Training Exercise





Hey, Yupette,


My husband is employed as a civilian with the Fairfax County Police Department, but we live in Arlington. I work for a NGO that operates worldwide and frequently see and hear reports of police violence against civilians, often by dictatorships.  I love your blog. My husband is quite unhappy with the Department's emphasis on anti-terrorism. That's not why he started a career in law enforcement. So we are counting down the years until he is able to retire.

You should be aware that, yes, thousands of police officers from nations with horrible human rights records are participating and competing in the World Police and Fire Games. They include police from Russia, China, Brazil, Mexico, Singapore, Azerbijan, Turkey, Israel, and Kazakhstan.

And, yes, there is a big "anti-terrorist" shooting competition which is off-limits. Also lots of secret meetings where information about "anti-terrorism" is shared and "anti-terrorist" tactics are discussed among participants. And the CIA is involved in a major way. According to my husband, there is little doubt that some of what is shared in the way of "anti-terrorist" tactics will be used by American police officers against American citizens.

The Washington Post and other media absolutely know the World Police and Fire Games are all about. But they are censoring information in the interests of "national security". Same Post that went after fraternities at UVA based on fiction in "Rolling Stone". So much for 21st Century "Journalism".

The Lexus Liberals who control Arlington, Alexandria, and Falls Church wanted nothing to do with the World Police and Fire Games.

Your husband should take early retirement. FCPD will only get worse. This is a police department that's used every means available to keep one of its officers who executed an unarmed and non-violent man from being indicted.

Twenty years ago the Fairfax County Police Department was one of the best if not THE best county police departments in the United States. Now, thanks to the War on Terrorism, it's just another bunch of cowboy cops.

Just co-incidence that Arlington, Alexandria, and FC opted out of participating in the anti-terrorist games.

To be fair, the Post turned significant editorial heat on Fairfax County Government for covering up circumstances surrounding the unarmed citizen's shooting by police.

Some of the anti-terrorist shooting events will be held at the multi-jurisdiction police range the Arlington Police Department owns and operates at Dulles Airport.

Just like the Post...Promotes a police event that uses 'undesirables' for target practice one day then complains that 'undesirables' are being shot by police the next day.

Yes. Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax County Police Departments are completely reactive. 'Community Policing? What's that?

How about the "Fire and EMS Units Attempt to Resuscitate a Homeless Person Previously Placed in a Police Choke Hold" Event? Who won?

Post's Arlington-Alexandria Metro Section reporter should drive out to Dulles and get a look at the "shooting competition" at the Arlington Police Department's shooting range. Oh, BTW, competition is closed to the public.

Names of the nations participating whose police routinely kill "underireables" (like Mexico and Brazil) are not listed by the Media. Let's not get a protest started.

No mention of the World Police and Fire Games on Amnesty International's Web site. AI has a big DC lobbying office.

Plenty of information about police brutality in nations like Mexico and Brazil on Amnesty International's Web Site.

You would think the local Lexus Liberal church groups who are all for better treatment for downtrodden minorities would be all over Fairfax County protesting these events.

If human rights activists organized protests at the World Police and Fire Games it's likely they would be intimidated (e.g, stopped and searched) by the FCPD, if not arrested.

A Brazilian cop was killed in a cycling accident at the Games. Big outpouring of sympathy for him. How about the adolescents in the slums of Rio who are executed by the police and their bodies dumped in a ditch.

Where do the Games sponsors obtain the firearms used in the shooting competitions?

Wild Guess: World Armament Providers, Incorporated, a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Central Intelligence Agency.

No, being Law Enforcement the competitors were allowed to bring their duty weapons as carry-on baggage.

If the Fairfax County Police are shooting and killing unarmed persons with their hands up, what do you think they would do to activists who try to do a major-league reality check on the sites of the various Police Games events?

Turkish police participating? Same Turkish police who broke up a Gay Pride Parade in Istanbul three weeks ago with tear gas and rubber bullets?

If the DC region's LGBT organizations had called for a boycott of the World Police and Fire Games, based upon police brutality committed against gay, lesbian, bisexual, and transgendered persons in countries like Turkey what would the attendance be?

How many other do-gooder NGO non-profits, like Save the Children, could have and should have called for a total boycott of the World Police and Fire Games?

This is why same old same old do nothings (except raise taxes to pay for their pet vanity infrastructure projects) get endorsed for re-election by the Post's summer interns. Post edits and prints press releases of well funded-incumbents and well-heeled organizations that have big PR teams.

Can someone call the Arlington County Manager's office 011-703-228-3120 tomorrow, July 6, which is not a holiday in the USA, to determine how much in tax dollars were expended supporting anti-terrorist shooting activities at the range Arlington operates at Dulles Airport?

Three are a number of shooting events. One is a paintball competition where law enforcement participants can practice firing non-lethal projectiles at infidels who organize Gay Pride parades in Muslim nations.

On the other hand, the body building event must have gone over big with the Rio police.

Call Acting County Manager Mark Swartz at 'Dysfunction Junction' (County Office Building, Clarendon at Wilson) and ask him how much the World Police Games tactical shooting events cost Arlington's sheeple taxpayers.

Thanks for this. World Police and Fire Games are NOT the Olympics, Special Olympics, Senior Olympics, etc.

To see what the competitors are doing while on duty in their home countries go to the Amnesty International Web site.

I'm an agricultural assistance advisor with a NGO based here in Washington. I get to see the bodies dumped in ditches 40 kilometers outside the slums.

Isn't that what Washington is all about? Americans are a bunch of lazy good-for-nothing whiners who are always complaining about 'entitlements' like Social Security and Medicare.

In fact, Americans are stupid sheeple who pay trillions to constantly fight wars in the Third World and keep a Third World Elite in power who are 'protected and served' by police forces who have no reluctance to kill anyone who's seen as a threat to the status quo.

Obama Administration, Homeland Security, DOD, etc., are massively promoting the World Police and Fire Games. That is why there is no protest whatsoever. Homeland Security is equating protests to terrorist threats.

FYI, before Hitler started massively persecuting the Jews he eliminated people who he considered a political threat by calling them "Communists' and shipping them off to concentration camps. 'Terrorist' is the 21st Century 'Communist'.

Yeah, World Police and Fire Games are a big multi-national police - military - national security training exercise, the sporting events are just a diversion.

There apparently was a huge federal-state-local national security and law enforcement consortium formed to keep human rights activists from staging protests against human rights abusers.

Hey ya'll, this is the same wonderful Obama Administration that let 1.1 million legal immigrants per year into the USA and provided them with jobs during the last recession.

F*ing NGOs operating overseas are worthless. Most are used by the CIA to gather intelligence. All Amnesty International had to do was call for a boycott of the World Police and Fire Games -- AI did not have to do anything else.

Have to wonder how much information was exchanged among the police about how to make 'undesireables' (aka socialists, infidels, homeless, etc.) disappear, never to be seen or heard from again.
