The federal government is so brazen and arrogant it no longer bothers to inform civilians when it conducts questionable military exercises in residential neighborhoods.
KTRK-TV in Houston reported that the U.S. Army along with other agencies took over the Carnegie Vanguard High School in Houston on Monday. Alarmed residents called police and complained about gunshots and helicopters.
The Army did not give any details on what the training was for, according to the news station, and a Google News search produced no announcement of the exercise.
The latest military drill follows an outrageous training exercise in Florida last week. On Thursday, military helicopters simulated combat over a freeway in downtown Miami. Federal troops rappelled down on buildings and mass transit platforms as stunned residents hit the deck in response to machine gun fire echoing across the city.
