As the NATO Summit on May 20-21 approaches in Chicago, we see a heightened sense of paranoia being pushed upon the people of the Windy City. With the recent announcement by the Obama administration that the war on terror is over, a new threat is emerging – citizen terrorists.
The Chicago NATO host committee is not divulging much information but it appears they are preparing for riots and acts of violence to break out by protestors. There are reports of security forces in full armored gear that will be standing guard around federal buildings in the Loop as the date draws near. The Emanuel administration has also put up bids for training aids and new riot gear for horses. According to Mike Shields, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, in addition to new high impact gear for horses they also purchased about 3,000 protective face shields to guard against human waste or flammable liquids being pelted at the officers.
According to the Red Cross, there are plans for a mass evacuation of the downtown area if such an event occurs. Although the Secret Service is denying such a plan, the Milwaukee branch, confirms in a memo that the Summit “may create unrest or another national security incident. The American Red Cross in southeastern Wisconsin has been asked to place a number of shelters on standby in the event of evacuation of Chicago.” The chapter spokesperson of the Red Cross in Milwaukee confirmed that this plan was not there own but the product of the city of Chicago and the Secret Service.
This is not the only measure that is taking place during the globalist Summit. Starting on the 19th a no-fly zone will also be imposed for the downtown area with another 10-30 mile ring around the perimeter. To add to the fear factor they have given the order “shoot-to-kill” to any unauthorized aircrafts. Last February Vislink confirmed that they would be equipping both air and ground vehicles with new surveillance gear to monitor the public. Furthermore, USPS on the 13th will implement a safety tactic by removing their mail collection boxes within the downtown area, McCormick Place, and the scheduled protest route.
