Apparently at the East Bay Regional Park District meeting on June 16th in Oakley (in the Delta, not Oakland) they voted on a resolution regarding PROTESTS. Does anyone know the thrust of it? Apparently it is not well noticed.
Here are a few pics of the EBRPD on manoeuvres at the 2011-2012 Urban Shield exercises in Oakland.
No park district is complete without a mobile command center
Documentation of militarized weapons for East Bay Parks District Police
The… Dept. currently possesses 11 weapons acquired through the 1033 program. The ten M16-A1
rifles and one M79 grenade launcher are stored in the secured and alarmed Armory at HQ. The
rifles are in storage as backup spare weapons, having been converted from … automatic to …
semi-automatic. The grenade launcher is in storage as a less lethal option for the deployment of
smoke or tear gas in the even it was ever needed for a large mass riot/unlawful assembly incident.
We NEED an armoured personal carrier, there are snakes and deer in the woods!
I see this happening all the time, maybe not at Briones, but ya know Redwood Regional is in Oakland!
Sure, having this hardware is batty, the logo says Ballestic Armored Tactical Transport, B.A.T.T.
Imagine what would have happened if the Warriors had lost!
That might be a man-eating possum down range. Support your right to arm bears!
I feel so special.
I’m so old I actually remember when rangers when helpful amateur naturalists and guides, not para-military proto-death squads.
They should call me Officer Friendly!
Playing follow-the-leader and patting each other on the back.
Trick or treat!
Heads up! Squirrel!
Ya know, in some countries, even the cops don’t have guns, much less the park rangers.
This guy didn’t think we needed full body armor all the time.
Detail from the Battle of the Vending Machine.
Coke adds life! We add death!
Damn, now I gotta pee. You know how hard it is to get this suit off?
VIRTUTE ET ARMIS & the American flag. Virtue & guns. It looks like the eagle is attacking the people.
Kind of makes me glad I only paid $3 to park and $2 per dog to take a walk at Briones a few weeks ago.
I love the EBRPD logo!
