Idk but I'd be super po'd if someone landed a helicopter on my abandoned school then started shooting. But that's just me....
This is a discussion on Flint Michigan Military Drill within the General Talk forums, part of the General Discussion category; If a huge bomb were to be detonated in the lovely garden spot known to the locals as downtown Flint would: 1. Anyone hear it? ...
If a huge bomb were to be detonated in the lovely garden spot known to the locals as downtown Flint would:
1. Anyone hear it?
2. Would any real property damage be done?
3. Would anyone notice?
4. Would anyone care?
5. Will the hookers still be working Saginaw and Dort streets in the aftermath?
6. Will drugs and illegal guns still be available on MLK street?
7. Will the thugs move to greener pastures?
The only question I know the answer to is:
Who will be made to pay for any real or perceived damages?
My two theories:
1. A typical night in Flint, Michigan
2. Somebody stole Michael Moore's stash of Cheetoe's and Mountain Dew, and he put his private security company on red alert.

I heard weapons, but did not sound like the 50's I'm used to. Unless they were blanks (I've never heard a 50 firing blanks)
Here's a 50.
Listen. It's a day in the life of our guys. "I'm good, I'm good"

But Jade Helm isn't supposed to kick off for a few more weeks I thought....
Also NG normally does not practice outside of military property unless doing training alongside of a local police unit. It is summer time and a lot of units are doing their annual trainings this month and next... so possibly.
But.... I do not know if I would be upset if someone landed a helicopter on my abandoned school... why? It's abandoned.. from my wealth of knowledge of Michigan (the original Robocop and the movie 8 Mile...)... I think the city and people of the city would be praising anyone who would land a helicopter on an abandoned school that is probably being used to manufacture drugs, train and design ninja cyborgs, or hip-hop rap battles. Once more my knowledge on Michigan is very diverse with Eminem's 8 Mile and of course Robocop.... but I would lean toward ninja cyborg rap battles over the manufacturing of drugs....

I'd be pissed off too if the military was out making all that noise in the middle of the night in my neck of the woods... Some folks got to get up early and go to work! Choppers and guns are not productive to a healthy nights sleep, especially with no warning!
Um... 1. not a 50 cal. The m2 cycles way faster than that, and there is no reasonable explanation for using the Barret in this scenario. That is semi automatic gunfire, most likely an AR15.
2. Military pilots don't take that long to get on target and drop troops. Probably a police chopper, especially considering the way the lights are set up.
3. Probably a police chopper, military would have done this in blackout, with NODs.
My accommodation of your incompetence does not make you right.
This is very similar to the Miami drill back in April, just without the white vans filled with acting protestors or prisoners.
