How long will
it be before they actually start shooting us from helicopter gunships

In that movie,
Arnold Schwarzennegger plays Ben Richards – pilot of a gunship
who actually refuses to spray a crowd of helpless people
with his mini-gun. For his refusal to be brutal, he is turned into
a contestant on The Running Man, where he must fight for his life
against a series of gladiators for the amusement of the crowd.
Is it not amazing
how predictive so many mass-market films have proved to be? Only
in this case, the real-life ‘copter pilots are itching to
mow us down. See, for instance, the recent “drills”

civilian areas were overflown by military choppers firing blanks.

the latest: In this video above, a woman is seen committing the
highly suspect and probably terroristic act of taking a walk in
the San Bernardino, CA desert, just off a major highway….from
the vantage point of Officer Unfriendly in his taxpayer-funded whirlybird.
The airborne enforcer menaces the woman from above, repeatedly buzzing

then explains that she doesn’t have ID – and why the

she’s merely walking about and not on private property
or restricted property, either. But going for a walk is
now apparently suspicious. Sufficiently suspicious to justify (in
the minds of these real-life Lt. Col. Kilgores) a combat-style landing
followed up with a proper rousting. Not just ihre papierien,

there’s no choice for us in the matter) . The thug also performs
a Fourth Amendment-free physical search (without consent) rummaging
through her purse and ordering her not to put her hands in her pockets.
