Picture it: You are sound asleep next to your spouse. Your children are safely tucked away in their bedrooms. Despite the chaos in the world which surrounds you–the riots, the food shortages, the deadly pandemic, the nationwide power outage, and the apparent societal collapse–you are safe and comfortable in your house. Although the world has seemingly gone crazy, you are doing all you can to weather the storm and (for the moment) everything is quiet and peaceful. Suddenly, there is a loud crash! You jerk awake from your slumber. Within seconds, before you can even get to your feet, you are blinded by streams of intense light. You can hear your spouse screaming, and your children crying in the distance, but all that noise is drowned out by the loud, harshvoices behind those blinding lights. “Get down!” “Don’t move!” If you hesitate for even a second, they will violently throw you to the ground. You are dragged from your own house along with the rest of your family. As several officers remain behind to search your house, you are thrown onto a fortified bus without any explanation, and whisked away to a “secure facility”. This is your new home–uniforms, prisoner numbers, forced vaccinations, ID markings, armed guards, barking guard dogs, and a fence with barbed wire pointing in.
Yes, I’m talking about FEMA camps. I’m not sure if I actually believe that they exist or not, but I have absolutely no doubt that our government is capable of such a thing. These are, after all, the same people who want to see all travelers naked–and grope their genitals. Honestly, how much of a stretch would camps really be? With all of the rules, laws, taxes, license plate readers, face scanners, traffic cameras, security cameras, metal detectors, speed cameras, and (recently) unmanned spy drones we are pretty much in a giant camp already–they just haven’t built the fence yet.
This article is not about the “reality” of FEMA camps. Plenty of other people have written articles and made movies which offer “proof” that FEMA camps exist. If you want information concerning the Japanese internment camps of WWII, legislation that opens the door to prisoner camps, or even maps of supposed FEMA camp locations, may I offer the following resources for you:

I’ve watched all the movies and visited all the websites. The information is sometimes compelling, sometimes absurd. There is a plethora of facts and an abundance of wild speculations. Although, I’m not sure what I believe, I have acquired an interesting piece of information that I want to share with all of you. One of my biggest questions concerning FEMA camps has always been this: how on earth would they convince military and police to go along with the roundup?

It’s actually not as difficult as you might suspect. Think of all the unconstitutional, victimless-crime laws that the police willingly and aggressively enforce every single day. Take the “seatbelt law” for example. Although this law is clearly a violation of the constitution and a glaring display of government overstepping its bounds, it was justified to the police as being “necessary because it saves lives”. The government offers a rationalization, the law gets passed, police supervisors give out the orders, and police do as they are told.
It all starts with the justification/rationalization.
It would stand to reason that, if placing people in camps could be justified/rationalized to the police as a “necessary act to save lives”, the police would likely go along with it. But are the police actually being indoctrinated that camps may be necessary to save lives? Sadly, the answer is yes. I recently received the following email, and it blew me away:
Dear Milo, I love your site. I noticed you haven’t discussed FEMA camps yet, but here’s some information that you might find interesting.
I’m a police officer in [withheld to protect officer’s identity] State. Everyone in my department was recently required to take an online course sponsored by FEMA about the “Incident Command Structure” (ICS). The Incident Command Structure is the system of control set in place following a disaster, catastrophe, terrorist strike, or other such event. All of the documents from that course can be found on FEMA’s website:
In particular you should pay attention to Unit 6: ICS Facilities. Here’s that direct link:
First, I’d like you to notice page 6-8 which is actually entitled “CAMPS“!!! Now, they claim in this training that “camps” are temporary facilities and may not be required. I feel that they do this to condition the police that camps are perfectly normal and may be necessary–so that we won’t hesitate to place people in camps upon command.
Secondly, I’d like you to notice page 6-4 which mysteriously states “some incidents may require facilities not included on the standard list”. The use of the word “facilities” would lead me to believe that these locations are already in place and are permanent in nature. But then you have to ask: what kind of facilities are important enough to already have in place, but too secretive to leave out of your police training?
I found it very interesting and thought I’d share.
Keep up the good work,
Interesting, indeed! It’s quite unsettling that FEMA is educating police officers around the nation that citizens may have to be placed into CAMPS at some point (for their own safety, of course), and that this practice is completely normal.
Now, I know that I bust on cops a lot on my site. Truthfully though, I don’t actually dislike most individual police officers, but the corrupt governmental institution they serve. Most cops are just honest, hard-working people–working a very difficult job. They don’t want to violate people’s rights, but they also don’t want to get in trouble with their supervisors and risk losing their livelihoods. I actually have several friends who are cops and, like the author of this letter, I can’t picture any of them voluntarily placing American Citizens into camps. I’m hoping that, by sharing this email with all of you, maybe some other police who have received this training will realize what’s really going on, and how they are being conditioned. Placing citizens in camps is not normal, it’s not necessary, and it never will be.
