Arkansas Town Plans to Begin Martial Law

City officials in Paragould, Arkansas, a town of 26,000, are recommending a plan that would enact martial law beginning in 2013.

The plan, purportedly a response to recent property and violent crimes, would send police into the streets with AR-15 rifles and authorize them to stop anyone in the street and demand to know what they are doing.

Mayor Mike Gaskill and Police Chief Todd Stovall announced in a town hall meeting last week that the program would begin in the new year:

"[Police are] going to be in SWAT gear and have AR-15s around their neck," Stovall said. “If you’re out walking, we’re going to stop you, ask why you’re out walking, check for your ID.”

... "We’re going to do it to everybody. ... They may not be doing anything but walking their dog but they’re going to have to prove it."

The mayor  told local reporters that the city's crime statistics were high eno9ugh to justify the plan, which was cooked up without consulting the city's attorney.

According to a release from the police department, this is how the plan will work:

Once an area has been identified as a high crime neighborhood, the select group of officers will saturate the area in an attempt to curb the criminal behavior that is plaguing that particular neighborhood.  Officers will accomplish this in a variety of different methods.  Officers will be working to identify residents in the affected area so that we can better serve our affected neighborhoods.  Most often, this identification process will be nothing more than making contact with a subject, handing them a business card, and asking if they live in the area and if there’s anything we can do for them.  During hours in which crime seems to be more prevalent (i.e. between the hours of 11pm and 5 am), our process will become more stringent.  We will be asking for picture identification.  We will be ascertaining where the subject lives and what they are doing in the area.  We will be keeping a record of those we contact.

The department says it is not out to violate anybody's rights, just trying to prevent crime.

As Ronald Reagan once said, "The nine most terrifying words in the English language are: 'I'm from the government and I'm here to help.'"

    Oh! boy, America, martial law means tyranny. They're gonna check everybody walking down the street to see their ID and where they are going. It's none of their business. This is getting bad, America. I heard that once martial law is called the anti-Christ will come to power in the world. Could that be obozo? He's a self-proclaimed dictator and he fits the description of the anti-Christ to a tee. Or, is it obozo's twin-nut ahead of Iran?

      Not America, just a small town in Arkansas.

        Hey Dumbo, How do you think Martial law in a country of this size which has never had it, geta started? Little by Little by Little! Just like que*** & Lesb**** getting the right to get married. It STARTED in one state & look how many have it now! The more muslims we get in our country, the more control they will get until eventually the whole country will be under Martial Law!!! Wake up man!!!

          Paranoia runs amuck

        • oleinwi

          Yeah, the Jews in Germany in the 1930's and 40's thought the camps were just a rumor too....so much for your "paranoia" theory.

        • cdoc

          Like I always say: " It's not paranoia when they really are out to get you. "

        • smilee

          Paranoia runs amuck on here, I certainly did not mean the jews in the thirtie and fourties and never said so and that puts be at a loss why you injected into this conversation when it was not a part of it and irrelvant to it and rumors and paranoia are two very different things, some was denial you ever think about that and some was lack of real knowledge

        • Patriot

          Exactly oleinwi.
          Have you seen the Arial photos of the so-called FEMA camps or read about the ammo purchases?
          Unbelievable.

          smilee,
          It's not paranoia if they really are out to get you! Go to Dearborn Michigan and see how tight of a stranglehold they have on that city! Then tell me that they're NOT out to gain control of the country, a little bit at a time...

        • smilee

          It is all in your head and that is paranoia because it is not real and that is why it is paranoia

        • tsitala

          Yeah? I watched videos of what takes place in Dearborn, who was extremely violent, and who wasn't in any way, shape, or form, and just who the hell it was the police stood up for-the extremely violent muslims, vs. people who never even said a nasty word. I know someone who used to go shopping there all the time, as they live close by, has seen it, and won't anymore, because it gets worse every year. That has nothing to do with paranoia, except in your mind. What it has to do with, is right in your face cold hard facts. - Keep thinking like you do-Coming to your town.

        • Pebbles

          I and others on this site have been trying to be nice to you, but you would tick off the Pope. How much time do you spend in the barrooms? Dearborn, Michigan is now under sharia law and the local government IS muslim. This was all over you tube > a year ago, along with laws being passed that nothing Christian would be allowed in public. Detroit will probably go the same way since it has been deserted by the car manufacturers and workers. Muslims take over in areas where there is a waning or sparse population of Christians, etc. You know, blighted areas, where they will not meet with much resistence. We even have them in our government, and the president invites them into OUR White House, to boot. Muslims are also infiltrating the south, another news item that was made public during the last presidential elections. You need to wake up and smell the coffee, son. You are far removed from the reality of what is happening today.

        • smilee

          Your posts do not sound very nice so why would you think your trying to be nice to me???????????? You are very biased and racists against muslims, most are good some are bad but you seem to lump them all in the same category because of your hatred of them. Do you really think I would tick the pope off? by the way I never visit barrooms so your as wrong about me as most thinks you talk about

        • Ort

          And I see apathy has run amok in you. Wake up.

        • a marine .

          THAT IS WHAT THE PEOPLE OF GERMANY THOUGHT IN 32. LOOK WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM

        • Pebbles

          History repeating itself is far from being paranoia. Staying aware and informed is never a bad thing. What is bad is allowing things to happen and being like a Pollyanna.

        not if the head kenyan has anything to say about it.he's got the black panthers at the voting places in pa,if they were out west here(except ca,pelosis domain)here they could get removed.if they show up as obamas private army,they WILL be.

          Ahahahaha! You are such a tool.

        • Mr. Rational

          What in the hell are you talking about? There was one guy dressed in a Black Panther get up......one guy.........man, I didn't realize that you were so scared of black people...

          FYI, this is a tiny little town in Arkansas, which is a Republican stronghold.....so, this mayor, most likely, is a conservative, so leave Obama out of this conversation..

      • smilee

        It is covered by the US Constitution and that covers all america not just Arkansas so not likely to happen not without repercussions

        • cyber_hackster

          So who in government cares about the Constitution???

        • smilee

          An example: Obamacare is now the law weather you like it or not because it was ruled constitutional and as 26 states cared enough to use it to try and get their way means they did care for it but they of course had it wrong and lost but still they used the government to express themselves and these were not liberals so I guess in reality the conservative do care about it too.

        • guest99

          Certainly not, we know, the occupier in our WH. He's already called it "my White House." He doesn't like it, is dismantling it, and further has said he thinks it's outdated. A communist muslim in our White House.

        • joanc

          Where have you been? Obama bypasses the Constitution by using executive orders whenever he feels restricted by that great document.

      • DieHardPatriot

        That's how it starts by conditioning people in a small town just like FEMA put the Sandy victims in tent cities while they kept promising warm housing and keep lying. to see what it takes for those victims break like the TSA did to flyers...now they will accept what they have to just to fly.

        • DWinch

          Inch by inch we march toward socialism without firing a shot!

        • Patriot

          What's really scary are the number of people during a recent poll indicated they would submit to anal exams in order to fly! Go figure.

        • emerutil

          Not I. Of course, I would not need to submit to that type of treatment, as I am a certificated pilot, and could rent an airplane if the need arises.

        • Mr. Rational

          They didn't put Sandy victims in tent cities....that is laughable.....they did give them all about a months worth of hotel vouchers, though.....and, hopefully you realize that it is the states that are in charge of the recovery, telling FEMA what to do, not the other way around....

        And you don't think these "city fathers" don't watch to see what the other guy can get away with before trying it themselves? They're like a bunch of kids. Now, I do have to admit that this group has the "right stuff" but, for all the wrong reasons. They're still proposing a criminal act. A series of random crimes is no excuse.

        Have you look at a map of the USA? Arkanasas is in AMERICA...if delcare Marshal Law on one inch of American Soil, it's illegal...!!! And NO littile town Mayor has that authority to declare Marshal Law...!!! This Mayor needs to be arrested ASAP for treason...!!! These people are nothing but
        Liberal/Communist left wing government educated morons pushing their
        Communist/Nazi/Islamic agenda and they need to disarmed us to further their

        armed citizens brings down crime and only dumb dowm left believes different.

        • Mr. Rational

          First off, this mayor is a Republican....secondly, if he's trying to protect his city, he is fully within his rights to have officers walking the streets in the middle of the night......they are only asking for ID between 11pm and 5am....

      • Elleryqueen

        Once it starts possible others will follow until too late. I have a feeling they will run into problems with their law abiding citizens.

        • Mr. Rational

          They are only asking for ID between the hours of 11pm and 5am.....not going to have to worry about lots of law abiding citizens roaming the streets at 2 in the morning....

      • Pebbles

        That is all it takes to get started. Ever put a little snow around a rock and roll it down a very steep, long hill? Guess what happens to it. No beginning is too small to grow into an all encompassing situation. Pure evil known as Nazi Germany is all the evidence we need.

    • jonrmoore

      By and large it is a known segment of our population that is raping, robbing, and killing. We must protect ourselves any way possible. There is no doubt that our model of government that has lasted almost 250 years is failing. We have 50 percent of the population that lives off the other 50 percent. That alone will bring America down .. but there is more! We let the 50 percent that pay no taxes VOTE! The socialists saw a flaw in our system and exploited it. Save yourselves.

      • smilee

        We reached the height of failure just before the civil war and we overcome that and we are no where near that level of failure and not likely to solve the problem that way again abut we will solve it we always find a way but not always is the smartest way

        • jonrmoore

          I have to disagree with you that "we will find a way". Previously, what happened was that the House of Representatives would pass a bill, Then the Senate would pass their version. If they differed, a compromise committee came to a comprise bill and both houses of government would vote again and send that bill to the president. The socialists starting with Clinton decided that they would not bring the bills up to a vote in the Senate; and thereby nullifying the democratic process. Unless a law is passed that requires a mandatory vote on a House bill, the system will remain broken. Obozo is using the Senate as a front to shield his reputation. Since Hairless (no balls) is a willing dupe it works for them. But until we take away the right to vote for those on welfare or food stamps, we will never win another election. Everybody knows that, so abandon that false "hope". Now they will never peaceably give upo that right so I envision chaos coming soon. I believe there will be more and more flash riots whereby business and afluent homes will be plumaged. The socialists of this country are much like the Bolshevicks in Russia in the early 1900's. The ends justify the means and the Constitution means nothing to them. If you want proof look at the socialist members of the Supreme Court!

      • Carl Stevenson

        It's not the model of government that the Founders established. It's that the communist globalists that have taken over our government ignore the Constitution's limits on what government can do. 95% or more of the federal bureaucracy and its "regulations" are unconstitutional. Most of the federal laws are unconstitutional. The problem is that the traitors have infiltrated all 3 branches, executive, legislative, and judicial.

        • Patriot

          Like Obama says, the Constitution is seriously flawed and inadequate. He went onto say that it says what the government can't do to you but it doesn't say what the government can do to you!

          This racist Arab's arrogance is absolutely astounding!

          You are absolutely right in your statement that they have infiltrated all 3 branches of government. Let's not forget our religions, schools, media,etc.

          Gloom and doom is all around. But in Revelation we are assured that Jesus is the winner when all is said and done. When Revelation was written, Rome ruled most of the then-known world, and Rome was not a friend of Jesus or His people. Islam is an enemy of God and hates us who are not submissive to it. We may soon in this land lose the liberty which we love. Obama is an enemy of liberty and some voters actually voted to return the enemy to the White House for another four years. Perhaps we'll have another Civil War as the only recourse with the enemy in charge of our armed forces. We'll do what we must do. It's hard to see how we can endure another four miserable years with Obama driving us farther and farther into debts we have no way of paying. And demanding that we act contrary to our consciences in order to obey laws he imposes on us. Free men and women are apt to do whatever is necessary to depose the dictator.

        • Patriot

          How you doing Ray?

          :Free men and women are apt to do whatever is necessary to depose the dictator." I'd like to think that's what makes us Americans and separates us from the rest of the world.

          No because they are always looked at as a "victim". If you do not know what "segment" of our population is doing most of the crimes, there is no hope for you.

        • Mr. Rational

          I do know what that segment is, I just wanted to see who you think the enemy is here......the segment most responsible are POOR people.....and, I don't see where you can say they are responsible for most of the bad stuff, yet consider themselves victims....that doesn't make much sense...

          And every single time one of them is involved in an officer involved shooting that THEY are responsible for, their community organizes marches and even riots. I am speaking of primarily African American communities -- and it happens repeatedly, as follows:

          Benton Harbor, Michigan -- Man running from cops on motorcycle. Had a warrant. Crashed and was killed in crash. 5 days of rioting

          Savannah, GA -- officer involved shooting -- exercising a warrant, cops were shot at first -- 3 days of protests and rioting

          Then there was the infamous incident in Florida.

          You never see white communities doing this; or primarily Asian communities, so WHY does it happen in the black communities??

          If this makes me a racist for pointing out the facts, then so be it.

        • Dems_lie_nonstop

          A lot of dead people also voted, and union members voted several times each. Illegal aliens voted. In one district, District 93 in Florida, there are only 7 registered voters, yet over 900 ballots were cast for Obama. YET, the dems INSIST, there is no such thing as voter fraud. Incidentally, those 900 votes were allowed to stand. Obama stole this election, ......... AGAIN!

        • Dems_lie_nonstop

          I would think that SS income, derived from wages you paid tax on, would allow you to vote. On the other hand, a "welfare mama" should not be allowed to vote, because she is a "taker" with no skin in the game. It is the "welfare mamas" who give us the "ripoff things", like the "head of household" crap in our tax system. There should NEVER, EVER, REPEAT NEVER, be a tax refund, in excess of what you paid in, ...... EVER! But, it is the voters in that category, who vote in representatives who don't give a whit for tax payers, and only coddle welfare mamas to get reelected! In many districts, the "takers" far outnumber the "tax payers", so "he who gives away the most freebies, ...wins"! Tax rolls should be tied to public assistance rolls. If you get welfare, you should NEVER be allowed to vote, until you get off the public feeding trough.

        • Krazeehors

          I am a disabled veteran living on disability and social security because I can no longer work. Does that mean that I cannot vote because my income is nontaxable??

      • jayleigh

        IT is NOT failing - our leaders who refuse to live byt the "letter of the law" as set forth in the United States Constitution are failing! You have fallen into the trap that libs spout - "desperate times call for desperate measures and that may include actions that are alien to the spirit of the Constitution" - and the old SCOTUS ruling that claimed the U.S.C. is a "iiving and breathing document and thus may be apended as the times dictate." That SCJ was wrong! The U.S.C. is neither living, nor breathing, nor subject to the whimsy of those who do not want to abide by it. For instance - there is NO allowance in that document's enumerated powers of the POTUS for the behavior he has exhibited as a law-maker and ruler! He is subject to the Congress and answers TO Congress - Congress does NOT answer to the POTUS! The socialists didn't find a flaw in the USC - American ignorant of the content of that nearly perfect document failed to hold Congress accountable, failed to hold the POTUS accountable, and failed to demand that the U.S.C, founding documents, American History written and taught from the original documents and writings of the Founding Fathers, and Ameican Government in the public schools. In my day, those classes were begun in 6th grade and continued on in greater depth through the senior year in High School. It is not a flaw in the USC that was exploited by the socialists - it was planned by them to convince Americans that we should teach multiculturalism in schools rather than American studies. And we let them get away with it. That downfall began when we allowed the Government to federalize the educational system rather than keeping it at the local level where parents had a say in the educational policies of their children and youth. Now, D.C. via Michelle Obama, determines what your child eats at school - she decided how many calories were adequate for children's lunches. No, the flaw is not in the U.S.C.! The flaw is that we've allowed Washingon by bypass it altogether. We can only take back our country if we are willing to study and know clearly the freedoms granted to us by that document, and the limitations it imposes on the President and on Congress. Demand that your elected officials follow the dictates of the U.S.C. but don't call it flawed as an excuse for doing nothing but complain about how the socialists have gained control. They gained control by manipulation of the ballot box, knowing full well Americans are ignorant of the contents of the precious documents that guarantees our freedom and inhibits the POTUS and Congress from taking them from us!

        I live in Arkansas. I recall most of the police force was involved in a drug bust cpl months ago. They're probably on leave pending trial, knowing this, the criminals are taking advantage of the situation. If the cops are on paid leave, how much money does this leave the town to hire new, possibly temporary officers?
        If your town was broke with officers on leave, crime running rampant, who would you call? What would you do?

I also believe he is probably going to be a Muslim because of the seven year treaty with Isael and them rebuilding their temple. Who but a Muslim would be able to make peace between the Muslim's and Jews and allow the temple to be built, but another Muslim.

          The globalist movement is controlled by the Jesuits, whose goal is to seat the Pope as ruler on a throne in Jerusalem, after destroying Israel and the Protestant Reformation, including the US which was founded on Protestant Reformation principles of personal accountability and liberty

          You cannot do an adequate study of the Book of Revelation WITHOUT also studying the Book of Daniel in the OT, and BOTH are largely based on symbolism. You must ALSO study the entire Bible in context, and pray for DISCERNMENT before you begin to read.

Obama and ACLU will have no issue with Martial Law, just requiring a Pic ID, and the possible upsetting of the indiginous illegal alien population!

        • joanc

          The way Obama protects the illegals , he will probably issue an executive order, stating that the police can only stop people who look like US citizens,and let the illegal alien lawbreakers continue on their way to the entitlement office.

          It is "unreasonable" at any hour. And we have a constitution that prohibits "unreasonable search and seizure".

If they get away with it, it will become the "norm" for America, bringing back memories of Nazi Germany, ..... "show me your papers"! Screw that!

        • Mr. Rational

          Asking for ID is not considered search, or seizure, so the Constitution has nothing to do with this argument.....New York City allows its cops to pat down people if they seem suspicious....what this guy is doing isn't marshall law, he's putting cops on the street, not the military.....

      It says in the Bible that satan is a deceiver, well, obama tells lies everytime he opens his mouth. He is the closest thing to the devil so there is a strong possiblity that this sicko is satan. We are lucky to be living in this time to witness the coming of the Lord and all his army, we may witness satan ( obama ?) get his ass kick good time.

      • oleinwi

        Luke 10:18. "And satan shall arrive as a lightning strike from heaven". The word for lightning in ancient Aramaic (The language of Jesus at the time) is baraq, the word for "from the top of the skies" is O-bama or U-bama. A friend who is a theologian posed this, what IF Jesus actually was telling us the name of satan Baraq Obama, and it happens to back translate to "ligtning from the top of the clouds or "heaven"? seems almost more than a coincidence, doesn't it?

        • jayleigh

          Your preacher friend is incorrect on the meaning of that word - it actually has to do with bending the knee, but yes, it is one of the words used for lightening because the jagged look to lightning can often look like a bended. The word for heaven is shemayim. i don't know where he got his info, but i studied Hebrew for six years. Aside from that, i disagree that Obama is "that man of sin" of the Bible because of one glaring fact - when that man does appear, he will seem to have the answers to the world's problem; he will unite people, not divide them, and all people will be fooled by his masquerade as a "godly" person. His first three years will bring peace and unity - Obama has brought nothing but division to the world. He is not hailed abroad as a great leader; he is laughed at by other nations, and the Arabs know he is an inexperienced leader - they do not consult with him and seek his guidance, they see him as a weak man over whom they will have power and ultimate victory without much effort. That will not be true of THE Antichrist. Obama has managed to offend our strongest allies - England and Israel - "that Man" won't do that - he will be politically savvy, brilliant in diplomacy, and his ideas will actually seem to work to bring peace and prosperity to the world. None of that is true of Obama. He may be anti-Christ, but he is not The Antichrist described in the Bible.

          Bill Clinton was as much a lier as Obama. His wife was also a pathological lier. Clinton didn't do as much damage as Obama because we had a congress with enough integrity to keep him in his place. The present congress, though Republican dominated, is as useless as tots on a bull. They have only one obvious goal and that is to continue feeding at the trough with the rest of the pigs.

          WRONG!!!! the Bible states that there WILL be a physical body for THE anti-christ. Jayliegh is right, there are lots of people who are ant-Christ, but only one who will be THE anti-christ. The Bible also states that he will be the one that will broker a peace between the Palestinians and Israel, but that peace won't last and then he will set up his own throne in the holy of holies in the new temple. He will aspire to usurp the very throne of God. We all know what happens when you try to upstage God; unfortunately he will deceive many and cause the losss of millions of souls--but then that is his goal--to corrupt all of God's creation.

        • Ray Downen

          Satan is an actual person, not a human with human limitations. He can cause people to do bad things but he himself is not "in" the person any more than he was in Eve when she first sinned.

          Jayleigh speaks well! Haven't we all noticed that Obama seeks to cause class warfare, the poor against the rich, the taught against the unteachables, each of the races against every other race? What he claimed he would do is the exact opposite of what he actually has done. Why would anyone now trust anything he promises?

          But have we any choice except to have some states secede and us all go into the new nation then formed? How else can we escape the enemy Obama? He holds the reins of power. Only the Republicans in the House and Senate could do anything and it seems they choose to not do what is needed to impeach the impostor.

          Of course they were ignored. We don't ASK to secede. We secede. If we were to ask, it wouldn't be the White House! The decisions must be made by the Representatives in each state who are responding to demands of the voters. Then the state officers notify the necessary officials in the national capital, none of whom live in the White House. And then the war begins.

          That is because obama promised boehner a trip to the chicago bathhouse. With the mayor that is. If he don't deliver boehner will cry.

        • Ray Downen

          Foolish talk will get us nowhere. Boehner offered what he sincerely thinks is the best way that there's any chance Obama might agree to, and his own party won't agree! A vote of no confidence. But the result will surely not please any patriot. Obama is going to do what is worst for the nation. Boehner thought there was some chance he might agree to do something better than the tragic course we're now headed on. But Obama wants us ruined and with no armed forces able to defend us. So he will let the calamity happen and try to blame it on us.

          I agree. I had a phone call from the GOP the other day asking for donations to help the party with their agenda. Why do they need donations to do the job they were elected to do??????? I actually laughed at the caller, and told him that when Boehner is removed as the speaker of the house, I might consider it, and he was flabberghasted. Made some lame excuses for what is going on. He said he will call again after the new year and of course, he was told not to waste his time or mine. It seems we are now having our faces pushed into a brick wall by the very people we elected to change things.

        • twocolts

          How ironic...all the wealthy politicians that beg for donations..have all gotten rich via the combination of unearned-pay they receive from us, the super-fine benefits they receive,( that we cannot get), all their tax-dodging, loopholes, foreign-investments, etc. etc., and asking for money from many people that are on their knees financially, struggling for survival. As The Republican Party continues to get more feeble and ineffective, I would not give them any money even if I had it to give. The worst Republican is still better than than most Democrats, but it really is getting harder to tell the difference. Weeper-of-the-house Boehner needs to go..his hidden Democrat lapel pin has been showing.

          It is not at all uncommon for nations to divide. It has happened throughout time. It seems of course that the bigger and powerful the nation (nation used loosely in some instances.) The bigger the shock wave.

          USSR? Remember that? Pretty much a big deal.

          Even smaller nations broke up and created separate places. Czechoslovakia. Though peaceful enough amongst Czechs and Slovaks, still now two countries....

          Why is it such a 'fringe' idea that it could happen in the US? It very well could if you look to other countries, nations, empires as examples.
          Could it really be a question of 'if' or really 'when'?

          In this time, at the rate things are going in the world of politics, I don't really think it is too much out of the question. History tells us it can happen, so I do believe that it can. Do I think it is a good thing? I can not venture to guess but if it does, count me on the boat away from libtards or the too far right leaning too....

          Hobo writes well. We have been a marvelously free and friendly nation, but now are led by a Muslim who is determined to ruin the U.S.A. Have we any choice but to secede? We saw in the lost election that he can outvote us with many unwilling to vote against him unless they get to name his successor, not liking the choice the Republican Party made. Some of us are foolish. All of us are endangered and need to very soon take action to prevent us all being lost.

Asked why he replied something to the effect that if he didn't do it someone else would. No Soros' puppet is betraying his (?) people.

        • Ray Downen

          You'd think that anyone who had studied Bible prophecy would know there is no Bible book named Revelations. The Revelation revelations tell us there will be a judgment day, with exciting events preceding it. But the point of what John was told is that Jesus wins at last, that victory is in the hands of God even though enemies of God are many and mighty.

        • anniedawn

          You are correct it is simply Revelations. My Grandmother always called it the BOOK of Revelations. It seems that you are implying that I said evil would win. Revelations 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world, he was cast out into the earth and his angels were cast out with him. 13:1 ".....saw a beast rise up out of the sea, having seven heads and ten horns, an upon his horns ten crowns, and upon his heads the name of blasphemy. 2. And the beast which I saw.....and the dragon gave him his power, and his seat, and great authority. 3. And I saw one of his heads as it were wounded to death, and his deadly wound was healed, and all the world wondered after the beast." KJV Head wound hasn't happened yet.

        • Ray Downen

          Annie, I'm pointing out that there is NO Bible book named Revelations. Within the book of Revelation, John received seven letters to be delivered to seven churches in "Asia" which was then a Roman province and is now called Turkey. And visions, all aimed at encouraging the Christians who were being persecuted to realize that in the end God wins. It's good for us to realize that the message is still true that in the end God wins.

        • DandBA

          Soros is guilty of betraying his fellow Jews to the Nazis during World War II. Therefore, he is a war criminal. Why hasn't the Israeli Massad gone after this man and his entire family? You can bet if the Massad wanted Soros, he would be gotten, no questions asked.

      My understanding is the anti-christ will come from the revived Roman Empire. Since the original Roman empire had two capitols, Rome and Istanbul, Walid Shoebat seems to think he will be a Muslim from Instanbul since Turkey is now mostly Muslim. Interesting thought.... the more I see how the Muslims are working their way around the globe, the more this seems possible. We'll see and probably pretty soon....

      • Glen H. Kippel

        Yes, I was teaching a Bible study on the book of Revelation and I had to change my position regarding a "revived Roman Empire." It is commonly taught that this would arise out of the European Union. But when I looked at a map of the old Roman Empire, I saw that Germany, for instance, was not part of it. Most of the Roman Empire existed in north Africa and the Middle East. Jake is right that there were two capitols, Rome and Istanbul. Look at the map and you will see that Europe could represent one leg of Nubuchadnezzar's dream statue, Africa could be the other. The center, of course, is the Middle East. The history books we read concentrate on Greece and Rome, but there was (and is) more to the world than that. A few people now think that what will be revived is the Islamic Caliphate, which was basically the Ottoman Empire, which was centered on the country of Turkey.

Which neighbor do you want to help you when the criminal knows you don't have a gun and robs and beats you first? The neighbor who has a gun or the one who's unarmed and just as vulnerable as you are? You know darn well the criminal will be armed!

        If they can put cops in swat gear armed with ar-15s they should be able to control crime. Sooner or later some nut case will go on a shooting spree and kill a lot of cops. They may have swat gear on but there is ammo that will go through those vests. Anyway the best answer was that mentioned above...Get citizens armed and trained...watch the crime rate drop like the FBI has reported that violent crime and and murders using guns is lower in city, town, and states that allow concealed carry. My state of SC is considering and already has legislation ready for the first of the year to allow OPEN (constitutional ) carr.

        • http://profiles.google.com/hawkcw4 Ed Durffee

          Its not right, but if they pass that as a law of some sort, it then becomes mandatory. I have a question for you all. They have a crime problem. Apparently a serious one. Why would not honest citizens then be all for aiding the strong effort, and this would be just that, to reverse that crime problem? I think about it and my mind goes to the Watts area of LA and there are many more in this country, The enemy is there but our warriors do not practice much crime prevention there because normal police activities have not stopped nor slowed it in 4 or 5 decades. So which is worse, bite the bullet for a time or let the crime take your city. Yea the fear that once begun it will not end. Big fear, maybe put a stop measure in the law, Crime down 66% no more martial law, goes up 10 and its back on. Someone has to try something and sounds like they are.

    • Carl Stevenson

      Those philosophies have one thing in common - they are all leftist. Most people have been convinced that fascists are "right wing" - they are NOT!
      Hitler was a "National Socialist," Mussolini was a Fascist. They were allies because they were both leftists.
      The only reason Hitler didn't align with Stalin's Communists was that neither was willing to share world domination. (Hitler knew he could easily get rid of the "useful idiot" Mussolini, but he knew Stalin was not so easily disposed of ...)
      By, the way, FDR *LOVED* Stalin (and referred to him as "Uncle Joe". FDR also admired Mussolini for his government control of all aspects of the economy (Fascism is a system of totalitarianism which presents an outward appearance that businesses aren't owned by the government, but they are totally controlled by the government's oligarchs.). McCarthy was unfairly vilified by the left. He was right that there were many Communist agents in FDR's government. J. Edgar Hoover knew it from the Venona decrypts of Soviet cables, but didn't "out" FDR because if the Soviets found out the FBI had broken their crypto, the'd have changed codes and our intel would have dried up. He was a Senator. It was the HOUSE committee that was responsible for hassling the Hollywood types ... Probably because many of them were Jews.

        Hey, after all Mussolini did get the trains to run on time :)

    Why doesn't the town of Paragould, AR adopt the plan of Kennesaw, GA and instead of planning tyranny, rather require all citizens to own guns and provide the gun training free of charge by the police and law enforcement which was to enforce martial law? That is proven to have worked and not infringed upon anyone's Constitutional rights. Does Paragould want less crime, do they want crime to decrease 50 percent the next year and decline every year afterward? If so, join Kennesaw, GA in requiring gun ownership by all and provide gun training for all.

  • Valley Station Mark

    My dad was born in Evansville, IN in the early 1920s. Up until the time he moved to Louisville in 1935, Evansville had a 6 pm curfew for people under 18 and a 9 pm to 6 am curfew for all other people. To be on the side-walk in front of your house during curfew hours required a work permit (paper route, milk route, 3rd shift work, etc). He does not recall any complaints or for that matter any crimes as their house did not even have a lock on the door.
    Now, I do not agree with doing this, I'm just pointing out that it is nothing new, even in America. Our real trouble is in the hearts of a people who have abandoned what Jesus said is the greatest of all commandments. "Love the Lord thy God with all your heart, all your soul and all your mind; and the second is like unto it, love thy neighbor as thyself." That simple passage taught with the threat of a chance of spending forever in a place worse than anything imaginable, carried the hearts and minds of the great majority. For the few that were not on track with this, well, we had prisons and ropes for them.
    What we really should wish for is Liberty, not Freedom. A train, removed from the tracks, is free to go anywhere it wants, but who wants to stand by or ride? Liberty allows for freedom within the confines of law, constitution and Scripture.

    I now what I'D do if I were one of them.

  • am2sweet

    Interesting. The cops want to stay in affected neighborhoods which would be the 'rich' neighborhoods as criminals won't usually try stealing from their own poor neighborhoods. So, if you are making a living and have a nice home you will have the cops camped out in your area. I suppose that's alright but if they want to find a nest of criminals they need to go to the poorer area of town and watch. Seems that there are Always people out walking around in those areas. This is Communism and will be spreading.

    This is not good PR for AR. Already, unlike neighboring TX, do not permit teachers to carry on school property, even private schools are subject to the law (that's my understanding). My grandson is going to be attending Christian elementary school in AR next year, right now he's in kindergarten in over the border TX. And my daughter and son in law are not thrilled at all that the teachers can't be trained in firearms and become "guardians" as the schools in the TISD north west of Dallas can be. They'll be sitting ducks without a law change. But then with the exception of Mike Huckabee, AK seems to elect more liberals than do its neigbors to the west or southeast (MS & LA). But unfortunately the only Christian school option is the one he's attending, his current school only has kindergarten and preschool. AR is a hotbed of drug crime much going on in small towns like Dequeen, and a lot of it is traceable to illegal aliens. My son in law should know as he is a federal investigator working with those local PDs. I understand why this PD wanted to do the more intensive foot patrols, that's just good policing. But they certainly announced it in the wrong way. Actually, they should have just moved the officers to foot patrol and let them get more closely familiar with the community and who's supposed to be there, and then, if they had their antennae out, they'd know whether the person walking their pup in the evening was normal or some person up to no good. I think the PD and mayor need a few good lessons in community relations!

    Just what kind of crime are we talking about? Break-ins? Vandalism? According to Wikipedia, the racial break down in Paragould, AK is 97.87% white, .04% black. Who do the police suspect of committing the crime? Are they coming from the other 100,000 residents of the metro area? This sounds like the police suspect "outsiders" and don't want to be sued for profiling.

      They should drop the ordinance and allow their police officers more leeway.
      Allow them the ability to dish out a little curb side justice. Use to work wonders on the streets of Chicago with gang-member youth. Many of these thugs come to appreciate their encounters. Taught them to grow up and become men.

      I once sat in a court room and heard a Judge issue the same kind of justice but no physicality was involved. A defendant who was charged with attacking someone viciously, gave the Defendant a choice. Either prison or the Military. The Defendant chose the military. Saw him a number of years later and he had grown/made into a man. Discussing it with him, he stated it was the best thing anyone had ever done for him and he was apparently appreciative of the judge's decision. Someone in that town needs to be a little more creative.

    THIS is precisely why our forefathers put in the 2nd amendment, with NO restrictions. The police are carrying AR15's, so why can't we? If we had no guns, and these police decide to overstep their authority, what is there to stop them then? Yeah, nothing. And history has show us many times, absolute authority leads to absolute tyranny, EVERY time.

    This town cannot simply suspend several articles of the Constitution because they feel like it. If crime is that bad, then maybe their police department needs to either more funding, or better management. Their lack of ability to enforce the law, does not give them the right to suspend basic rights as guaranteed by the Constitution.

    Unannounced periodical implementing of this kind of sweep is logical, and certainly isn't going to harm anyone who isn't up to something wrong. People forget that cities used varying versions of this kind of thorough policing during much of our history -- especially the exclusion of kids and young people from the streets at night. Back then you never saw graffiti, you didn't have 14-year-old girls walking home at 2 a.m. and getting assaulted, and burglary was rare. I have never in my life had any reason to not willingly prove who I am and why I'm in some public place. I wish this could be implemented in my town where we have 32 gangs in a population of less than 50,000.

    this is illegal under the constitution and the law of probable cause no one can be stopped unless proof or knowledge the person being stopped has committed a crime. suspecting a person or fishing for evidence or information is illegal and all people who are violated should file complaints with the police department responsible, the state police certification board and criminal charges be filed against the police department. city, county or state which the police department responsible falls under. this is your duty as an american. if you don't exercise your rights you lose them. that is the problem with our country that caused our government to get out of control. we the people are the government they work for us. they want you to believe that you can't fight the government but that is a lie.

    Does anybody really think.That even if the crime in that area goes down to what is was like in 1953 that leaders there,Will stop all this of having the police having these guns .Not giving a ratts butt of our freedoms.Does anybody really think that wil go away.No!!!.have those people who lost there homes in New York and the states near by from the storm.Have they were able to go back to there homes no.Have they left those prison camps .Sorry I mean Fema Camps .Have they left them or were allow to leave . I am taking a guess no. Have not heard anything about that .I am sure if they left you hear about it .Just how bad it is .When you put any goverment in any part of your life and it is sold to you that is is for your protection.The problem that the goverment says they are needed .When that problem is gone.Then do you think they go away.Then they are the problem far more .Then the problem you had that they came to be the saviors.But the media likes it .Because in there stupid minds it is good for goverment ot be in ever part of our lifes .Just as long as it does not get in there job and life.There mistake is that one day it will . If anybody really thinks that this is just one town that this happens and nowwhere else. No this is just a test to see how far they will get away with it in this town.Then it will slowely get into other places in the Usa .I just hope that the citizens there speak up and make this a big deal that is wrong.But looking at our countrys reaction at the shootings and the election .I am thinking that most of them will think this is a good idea to protect them . The communist media cheerleaders will think it is great . From watching the media love of goverment of being there for ever disaster .Not showing what a joke they are .Then the movies that show you that goverment is smarter then you the average person when it comes down to handle any disaster . I think that these people there in that area think that is a good idea .Because they watch the medias love of of goverment and the shows and movies it has made them think there is nothing wrong with having a police ever where they go with all that military guns . Just to tell those same people in that town that think this is good.If you think that it is just going to be the police think again. There are Russian military being train with our military and they have not left yet .There is a reason for that.I am sure that they will be in your town . They don't care about anybody rights .They will make your life worse .Yes but this will be just a testing to see how the people in this town act when all this police comes to there city.It will be more of this in our citys .Just waiting for the next false flag attack on this country.Then you will see outr military in all of our citys . I guess where this is getting started you will hear that it is for there own protection from the Media or should I say Media goverment mouth pieces .Now showing you the bad side.I think they only way in this country to even get angry over what will happen to them .When there freedoms and rights are gone when the miltary comes ot there areas and citys.Is when there computers and cell phones get grap from them by this goverment.Then you will see angry at this goverment.What has ever happen to this country .When it comes down to protection there rights.What cowards we have become

    I bet that a lot of you that are ripping up this news are the same people that say all teachers should be carrying guns, to prevent other horrible school shootings.....so, teachers packing weapons is good, policeman packing guns and roaming the streets is bad?

    Previously, what happened was that the House of Representatives would pass a bill, Then the Senate would pass their version. If they differed, a compromise committee came to a comprise bill and both houses of government would vote again and send that bill to the president. The socialists starting with Clinton decided that they would not bring the bills up to a vote in the Senate; and thereby nullifying the democratic process. Unless a law is passed that requires a mandatory vote on a House bill, the system will remain broken. Obozo is using the Senate as a front to shield his reputation. Since Hairless (no balls) is a willing dupe it works for them. But until we take away the right to vote for those on welfare or food stamps, we will never win another election. Everybody knows that, so abandon that false "hope". Now they will never peaceably give upo that right so I envision chaos coming soon. I believe there will be more and more flash riots whereby business and afluent homes will be plumaged. The socialists of this country are much like the Bolshevicks in Russia in the early 1900's. The ends justify the means and the Constitution means nothing to them. If you want proof look at the socialist members of the Supreme Court!

As citizens we can buy and own AR=15's now and for the near future until our rights are taken away by that scum sucking low life POS obamaass and his demoncrate minions .AR-15's are semi automatic. M-16's the military and police carry are full automatic. There are a few states that allow the citizens to own automatic weapons but they are few. And we all know that the liberals socialist marxist muslims communist and other groups do not want to american public to own weapons period, If we do not have and use our 2nd amendment we can not defend ourselves from tyranny.

  • tomnchrist

    This was very common in the mid 1880's even to the early 1900's. Especially among small towns. A small but ruthless group of theives, robbers, or greedy rich men would gain control of an area or town and start ruling it through a reign of terror/murder. Then the citizens would have to rely on a stranger/sheriff, who was tougher than the bad guys to regain control of the town. Many western movies were made using this senerio. One common thread was that the town had been disarmed or out gunned by the criminals. Sometimes the old Sheriff was bought out and worked for the criminals. When the town was freed from the tyranny of the bad guys, the savior Sheriff/stranger would either voluntarily retire or leave. If not the town would elect another Sheriff.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Debe-Lange/559060627 Debe Lange

      If you remember, a good sheriff would come in and start the shooting but it was the town and their guns who would save the day by backing up the sheriff and killing all the bad guys. Bad guys dead; problem solved. Only AFTER the guns were used did the town go back to being peaceful and safe once again.

    So, it really has started. Next the nazi emblem will be on all uniforms, or the Obama campaign emblem, you know, the big white "O" with red and blue flourishes running through it. It's like the one on the HLS uniforms worn by their militia that stop cars on the interstate highways and ask them where they are going, why, who they will be visiting and for how long. Haven't heard of it or seen the pictures? Go to you tube, if it hasn't been removed already. All of you who voted for this smiley face had no idea what lies beneath that smile. It is pure evil, and he has put all of his partners in government positions, or they were already in office, just waiting for his arrival---republicans and democrats alike. The ones who are not with them are being removed from their committee positions. Sound familiar? Adding 2plus2 is becoming much easier as their transparency becomes more evident. Harry Reid owns land in Las Vegas that has police and firestations on them, and I can tell you first hand because I have seen it, not a one of them fly the American flag. Now, whether it is by design or the flags were stolen, I do not know. But, the person who pointed this out to me has lived here for > 13 years said they always flew until Reid bought them up, the land and buildings that house them. Now that action speaks volumns to me. Martial law my tooshie, Conn shootings were timely and all the excuse they needed. WHAT ABOUT FAST AND FURIOUS? Where is the investigation concerning this? Was that all show for the elections? When are the parents of that murdered boarder guard going to find out the truth? Where does this president and his henchmen get off trying to pass gun control laws when they were directly responsible for getting AR's and ammo to the Mexican Cartel, and I saw a posting about this several months before it happened, and it stated it was Hillary, the USAG and the UN behind it, all in an attempt to blame Americans for their excessive use of drugs that was the cause of boarder killings, and that would enable them to take our guns away from us. What about the murders in Benghazi? Now Eric Holder has "decided" to remain in his position as USAG, and where is the committee that was asking for his removal? Setting a pattern? I would say so. Therefore, Arkansas is just the beginning. Hold onto your hats, people, it is coming. The undoing of the Constitution and it's being distroyed right before our eyes. Oh, yes, this was Obama's plan from the get go, and he has lots of help. Not only those in the government, but all of the people who voted for him, giving him their permission to destroy America.

This world is Hell and thus so are all who are part of it, whether a Rabi, or a Priest or a Congressman or Senator.
    You've all been lied to since a child, about religion, Santa Claus and things that should save your soul, and billions have believed it. Words, can bind or unchain one to overcome this world, but few will. Martial law on crime seems like a start in the right direction. You can tie all fear to your God you worship to and don't know it. The deity who created this world and all that's on it. Satan. The one and only spiritual 'Father' has nothing in this world, but those souls, who seek and find him, on a one to one basis, and thus find truth, laced in comfort as many of you will never find as you believe all you read and how you translate all religious scriptures, from the Koran to the Bible, and give praise to the antiChrist who controls them all. Obama is just one of the many antiChrists that is upon this world you all love so much. Remember, we're to renounce it, not cling to it. 1 John, 2; 15-18. Love not the world neither the things that are in the world. If any man love the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16. For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh, and the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life, is not of the Father, but is of the world. 17. And the world passeth away; and the lust thereof; but he that doeth the will of God abideth forever. 18. Little children, it is the last time: and as ye have heard that antichrist shall come, even now are there many antichrists; whereby we know that it is the last time. When you all learn this world is Hell, and few escape it as their souls keep returning, life after life after life, then will mankind learn of the true God, which is not Jesus as this world is tied to lies that deceive, separate and divide. Not bring together. God bless to those who know the Father and fear nothing that's coming for only a few shall be left behind as the separation of good and evil continues forward as the angels are being gathered for the last days coming, which will be years away from now.
    Proverbs, 10; 30. The righteous shall never be removed: but the wicked shall not inhabit the earth.
    Nag Hammadi; "What good is not good and what is bad is not bad."
    Find the true God and separate yourselves from this world, and fear no more. All you have to do is seek deeper within yourselves and find a truth that's always been within you, but you've denied it to be one with this world you all love as you cherish, cling to all it's teachings.

    Just as it is said, Obama is a Threat to our Safety and Security of ALL of Americans and this is just another PRIME EXAMPLE of what it has become with his so called Leadership.... This kind of assault on our Freedoms is much more than being Tyranny as we know it.... It starts out Slow and Easy, then it gains more and more, and before you know it, we NO LONGER can Stop it or have any further Rights to Defend ourselves..... same as in Germany with " Hitler " and his Gestapo..... If FOOLS like this in Arkansas allow this, then it will NOT be long before it will spread to other places..... We cannot allow this, as this is a Direct Violation of our rights, freedoms, Safety & Security...... Remove these individuals to whom have designed this Foolish Assault upon us Americans.....

    StarDust Doolittle appears to have been more carful with the stardust he (she) has been sniffing. There is no scriptural verse, nor realistic Christian Voice I have ever heard that has made the claim that ...that once martial law is called the anti-christ will come to power in the world." I can appreciate the concern about violence but need to say that one town declaring martial law has so many legal wrangles the idea will never see the light of day.
    Yes. The day of the Anti-Christ is nearing. Even the muslim religion claims that the anti-christ is on their side--not christ's And there is much more to the Anti-Christ's return than a small spot of martial law.

  • Gary

    It is a sad day when Americans are going to be killing other law abiding American citizens! They need to ask the police officer if they have a family, wife and kids, then tell them they need to go home and be with them instead of harassing innocent citizens. Then tell them you are not going to bow to the government thugs before things get really ugly.

  • MYS77

    So they are doing this to prevent crime...but aren't they committing a crime of intimidation, threat, violation of freedom of privacy and being out in public??? This is why when one person commits a crime... the entire population loses there freedom.... such is how a liberal thinks and believes. If one person commits a crime with a gun... the liberals solution is to take everyone guns away. With that logic... one person drinks and drives.... then everyone should not be allowed to drive then???? This mayor has not the authority or the right to violate people freedom... not based on statistics...but his own idealogy and yes his ego of thinking he can?

    Have the police ever thought about "neighborhood watch?" That works quite well. Each neighbor protecting each neighbor. When we used to go on vacations,selected neighbors were told that if they saw a van back up to our house or some unusual car in our driveway, they should call the sheriff. Even in daylight, break-ins happen. Not always between 11 pm and 5 pm.

    • RescueKyron

      Sure. Call it the Zimmerman Patrol. Don't you understand what happened there to stop neighborhood watch? Nah, best thing is to stop expecting "sumbuddy" else to watch your back and to do what the Founders the BRILLIANT Founders told you to do. Johnny Get Your Gun.

      States have to take education back from the FEDERAL Dept of Ed if you want States/towns/citizens to have any control of anything. That is the secret power. Return education to the States where it was when we had the best education system IN THE WORLD. After the commie feminists got mom out of the home they walked in and scooped all the guts out which included the responsibility and control of education. Most people are so dumbed down now that they can't understand the reach of the arms of the Federal Dept of Education, so it won't be easy to "change" this. It is the most important thing we can do and will cause the commies to riot. Let them come out and start.

I've lost appliances, air conditioners, all the copper pipes, the window weights, electric heaters,and other items numerous times. I hate the place where I have houses. Not to mention the times they have been broken into when I have them rented.

    First of all, that PC needs some serious help with his grammar. But of course, that's the least of his problems. His "motive" may be good, but that doesn't give him the right to violate the U.S.C. i hope the city has a ton of money to fight the litigation that is certain to occur. But, the POTUS thinks martial law is the way to rule, and confiscation of all weapons is going to create a safer America. The old saying is true: "When guns are outlawed, the outlaws will still have guns." No one with evil intent is going to give up weapons! Only the law-abiding citizens will give them up voluntarily or have them confiscated by warrantless lawmen who have the names garnered from the registration forms. None of the thugs have registered firearms, but you can't tell the radicals anything - they are the only ones who knows what is best for America, right?

  • pduffy

    "Curb criminal behavior"? Since when? Most of the criminals are never punished after being 'arrested', so they just continue comitting crimes. The liberal court system is responsible for this evil plague upon our land, for if they had done their jobs and punished the thugs, there would be no need for 'martial law'. LIBERALISM is the cause of a police state, and everywhere it's tried the results are the same.

  • DonnaLB

    Reagan was right on! Have they not tried increasing the police presence during those hours in high crime areas? I think they will find they are infringing illegally on citizens' rights and will need to change their approach. I applaud the police and their efforts to protect, but this is not the best approach. I would think the presence of police would suffice in most cases.

    All legal citizens should be permitted to vote, otherwise you create a separate class of citizens & that kind of divisive action leads to anarchy. Its not fully enforcing our laws, such as gun laws, that hurts us. Its also providing so many loopholes on almost everything. Look at Obamacare. He or Selibus, have provided all sorts of exceptions to a law that will become a massive financial burden to the rest of us. We need to dump our current tax system & intsall a flat tax on all. No exceptions & yes, that means not for charity or for home mortgages. Once in place, & revenues begin to flow in, as they will, the rate can be lowered enough that NO ONE will miss their past deductions. Its more than this though. Its respect for the nation & its Constitution. I say if you take the oath of office to preserve, protect & defend that Constitution, the minute you violate that oath you face impeachment &/or criminal charges.Its OUR country, not one that belongs to elitists or special interest groups, or political activist groups.

    I am a retired, life-time police officer, (retired after 34 years), having experienced every aspect of law enforcement from walking a beat to being a chief, in both Michigan and Nevada. What this "Mayor" is proposing to do is to create a "police state" in his town. These activities described here are patently, "unconstitutional" invasions of citizens right to privacy, right to simply walk down the street without being challenged by a heavily armed officer and made to produce identification. For an officer to make a "stop" or a "search" of anyone, he or she must first have what is called "probable cause". Or at the very least a "reasonable suspicion" that the person may be violating the law. Short of this (United States Supreme Court) "standard", the officers have no authority to stop or demand identification. We already have enough government officials violating our constitutional rights as it is. The last time I checked, we didn't live in Nazi Germany, (show me your papers). Better police work does not result from violating citizens fundemental rights. Those who surrender their freedom in exchange for security, ultimately end up with neither!

  • KittyKittyKit

    The CITIZENS of that community should surround the city offices, the police station(s) and the city officials homes........make citizens arrest and make charges of TREASON for unreasonable search and siezures and NO PROBABLE CAUSE, try them in a court of law, and if found guilty (and they will be), then have them put to death.
    If they want REAL SAFETY, ARM ALL OF THE CITIZENS and make ALL who are 21 and older the city police force. Train and certify them in the use of a handgun and an AR-15 and mandate they UPHOLD and DEFEND the U.S. Constitution and GENERAL LAW ABIDING BEHAVIOR within their own immediate vicinity.
    LAW ENFORCEMENT is NOT "Rocket Science". It just takes HONEST AMERICANS to band together, with their weapons, to stop these CROOKED POLITICIANS, POLICE, and the OTHER CRIMINALS in the community.
    It's a time for FORCE, and undoubtedly there WILL be some INNOCENT lives lost, but there are innocent lives lost NOW. At least the CRIMINALS WILL BE KILLED, in most instances, even if there are innocent lives lost, and the community will NEVER have to deal with them again. Those criminals that are left will MOVE to UNARMED communities as CRIMINALS don't like to deal with people who carry guns.
    If this towns administration gets away with imposing MARTIAL LAW, that will ONLY LEAD to 100% mistrust of the local government.

    The police forgot one thing, It is unconstitutional and anyone stopped are not required to give identification on demand if they are not involved in any crimes and are peaceably out walking no matter what hour.

    In Detroit , no need to ask questions, they destroyed the city , even they want out , but we dont want them in our neat area with no crime, they just drag the crap with them, I would like it if they went to another state to shop, next they will bring our shopping centers down, like Flint, Saginaw, where they are is just plain bad luck.

    I guess this is Obama's testing ground. I see he is trying it out down in some quiet town to see what he can get away with. Why don't they do this in Chicago where there is more crime and murders then any where in the United States. The reason they won't do this in Chicago is because they will shoot back at them.

    This is NOT martial law!!!! If these idiots think it is they have another think coming...Martial law places the authority with the senior military person in the area. I read nothing about that happening....This seems to me to out and out intimidation of the population....

    "It is proper to take alarm at the first experiment on our liberties. We hold this prudent jealousy to be the first duty of citizens, and one of the noblest characteristics of the late Revolution. The freeman of America did not wait till usurped power had strengthened itself by exercise, and entangled the question in precedents. They saw all the consequences in the principle, and they avoided the consequences by denying the principle."

  • Local Patriot

    I Live in the city of paragould, and I can assure you that this is the farthest from the truth as to what is happening here. First to make very clear I am one of the most patriotic constitutional supporters of this country. I completely believe that this country was built
    and should be controlled by true patriot Americans through our election process
    not by any form of large over stepping government. That being made clear we can
    now move on to the real subject. Our town over the last few years has become a victim
    in some areas to an elevated level of crime, primarily growing out of the Katrina disaster which hit this country. There was some dedicated individuals who moved into this area and became a valuable asset to the community, but at the same time there was many whose career prior to moving her was being a professional criminal, thief, drug dealer thug, murderer and anything else that they could be. These fine outstanding individual have done nothing but cause destruction to the community.
    This issue has become this nation wide subject because of the number one problem that most of you on this page completely agree with, THE BIAS MEDIA. The article printed was not even close to what was said or took place in the meetings, as the public meetings were 100% positive by the attending public. This City government is one of the most
    conservative local governments you will find in the country, and has the upmost
    respect to all civilian rights, their only plan was to elevate the amount of visible patrol into these troubled areas of the city to deter the criminal element from their area of operation.
    I just ask that before we all jump to a drastic conclusion of what is going on simply from reading a article from a single newspaper ( SINCE ALL MEDIA CAN BE SO TRUSTED ) that we would at least look for a second source to confirm these claims first.

    How ironic that in Arizona, the ACLU is up in arms because the police want to ask for id when a person is suspected of breaking the law, or to e verify before hiring but now it's ok to stop citizens walking their dogs or just because they live in certain neighborhoods.

On the other hand it is very good I think you might catch a lot of wanted bumbs this way. try the put the lesser bumbs in jail but if some one is convited of murder don''t let them appeal for ever one time is good and after that give them the needle and don't tell me it cost a million dollars to do it I had to put my dog down this year and it cost about 150.00. also use the willing justice of the peaces. this was there job years ago

Drones, some armed being used by police depts. now, drones the size of flys are being used to spy on you, all e-mails and cell phones tracked and mail read and monitored. I hope all the stupids and the leeches with their obama phones are proud of what they've done, PUT A DICTATOR BACK INTO POWER!

  • Charles

    I don't blame these people, who are under assault and constantly fear for their safety. Having been a young man in Brooklyn as it was turning bad I can directly empathize. And the alternative to martial law is vigilantism. They tried that too in one part of Brooklyn in the mid-1960s, and also near Newark NJ in the late 1960s, and in both cases it was effective, while the New York Times underwent a series of hysterical outbursts of liberalism condemning people "taking the law into their own hands." Instead, the Times believed people should continue to expose themselves and their families to the mercy of violent criminals.

    I can't argue with any of the sentiments presented here. All very insightful. But at the end of the day, what are "we the people" going to do about things in this country? It doesn't seem productive to our society to just beat these topics up on blogs that only result in preaching to the choir. We all feel good having the opportunity to have our "voices" heard, but who's hearing it? The 51%? We are in the minority and the real issue is what productive thing can each of us do to cause a return to political and social conservatism and the Judeo-Christian ethic in this country?

      Community group involvement. . . . Alternative forms of communication, i.e. CB Radios and SSB and Short Wave Radios. . . . Get one, set up portable units not home based stations, learn to use them and establish a contact network. . . . Everyone is procrastinating, but it will come to a head overnight and there will be NO TIME TO PREPARE ! . . . Just like the black rif-le bans, these forms of communication will be "outlawed" too ! . . . . When the internet and cell phones go down with the "flick of a switch", and they WILL, it'll be too late to figure out an alternative ! . . . .

    From the article: "Most often, this identification process will be nothing more than
    making contact with a subject, handing them a business card, and asking
    if they live in the area and if there’s anything we can do for them."

    The single best thing everyone should do is hand the card back to the "officer" and declare that they refuse to accept their "offer of services" and go on about their PRIVATE affairs.

    At first I was a little disturbed by the headline. As I read I got more disturbed until it began making sense what they were trying. I have often said if I were to move out of Florida I would probably go to Arkansas or Oklahoma because they seemed to understand freedom better than most. The article seemed to challenge that belief a little but not completely.

      Wow, ol' CA Senator Feinstein clawed the podium right after the NRA speech, accompanied by her ol' pal CT's Blumenthal. Both anti-NRA, both anti-2ndAmendment, both anti-nationwide security of all schools. I am absolutely stunned at what I am realizing. I watched those two frozen faces and thought as they damned guns, that these are Jews. These are blood of those burned in furnaces and killed all over Europe because no one would help them except the good ol' Americans jumped in and brought others with them to save their butts. Those two know that if their blood had guns that they might have had a chance to survive. WHY would these INGRATES do this to Americans? They gotta go. Plain and simple, kick them out of office. Certainly filthy Blumenthal is quite a representative of Connecticut. Makes one wonder about Connecticut that supports and pays that piece of filth to speak for them.

  • lrhopkins

    What seems semi logical for any given situation can very quickly turn against you and what was once a good thing can become irretrievably wrong. . . . It would be far better for the populace to arm THEMSELVES, and a comprehensive "Castle Law" be instated immediately ! . . . . These quickly thought out answers usually do not have a comprehensive approach to the problem, and infact create more bad situations than they fix. . . . Why not just take all the guns away from just the bad guys ? . . They can't do that, so they want to take them away from the good and honest people. . . And, sadly, a lot of people think THAT is the answer. . . THAT would be "everyone's worst nightmare ! . . . I think the Mayor and the Chief O Police both suffer from "Napoleon Syndrome", and see an opportunity to act out their dreams of power in the real world. . . . A good, comprehensive Castle Law Doctrine and a good armed citizen Concealed Carry plan would help to eliminate the problems Paragould Arkansas is experiencing. . . . WE DO NOT NEED MARTIAL LAW IN ANY AMERICAN TOWN ! . . . . What we do need is responsible armed citizens !

I mean crap is it really that hard of a concept to grasp. All these people that are for obama in my opinion are just as bad as the over the top repubs. The reason i have for that belief is that my whole entire life there has been a mixture of both parties in office and guess what nothing has changed.

    This goes back to local politics which is the only way to get our country back . The County Sheriff could put a stop to this .

    As long as you fight DC and not care about local it will only get worse . When are you people going to wake the hell up and know that you cannot win a fight in DC ? Shouldn't it be evident by now ? While we sit around and talk DC they will keep at their program of putting us into total servitude and as I see it they are succeeding handily and you are falling into that same trap .

    Ocrap was going to win and you should have known that also but all I heard was Romney was going to win and wait for the elections and then we will change things around . Yeah hows that working for ya ? ?

    The County Attorney needs to step in and have the Police Chief and any other individual that is implementing this for violating the law and the US Constitution.

    Clearly, the permanent, parasitic political class is dominated by unbeheaded criminals. Their only "legitimate" characteristic is their skill at crafting and deploying pretense. Their only real motive is revealed by the very real possibility that they start each day by asking themselves, "What can I do today to sustain and grow my power?" Real politicians and bureaucrats are servant leaders who know that government at its heavenly best is no more than a necessary evil. These leaders ask, "What can I do today, to make my job less costly, less needed or even obsolete?"

    I'm a former cop and do believe that if I were a citizen in Paragould, AR that they would find me out "walking my dog" just when this ordinance hits the streets.

    The lack of effective law enforcement - which involves more than simply supplying officers on the streets (e.g., enhancing community involvement, effective follow through on arrests, appropriate sentencing, etc..) - does not require restricting the lawful liberties of a population.

    I'd rent a dog if I had to. This kind of jingoism does not fly.

    first, you have to identify a problem, theft crime, then identify why the problem occurs, lack of money or poverty, then identify that problem why it occurs, less jobs, then identify why that happens, ....the biggest reason is because the federal reserve has lowered the value of the dollar and NAFTA has made it possible for manufacturers to make things cheaper over seas and get them back to the U.S.

    so the solution would be to repeal the federal reserve act of 1913 and repeal NAFTA and start taxing the imports higher again
