A man identifying himself as a retired United States Marines Corps Colonel and Iraq War veteran testified last week against a New Hampshire city’s proposed acceptance of a grant for a police armored vehicle, and the video footage has gone viral.
“What’s happening here is that we’re building a domestic military, because it’s unlawful and unconstitutional to use American troops on American soil,” he says in the video. “We’re building a domestic army, and we’re shrinking the military, because the government is afraid of its own citizens… We’re building an army over here, and I can’t believe that people aren’t seeing it. Is everybody blind?”
The man is not named in the video, which appears to have been taken in testimony during a Concord, N.H., council meeting Aug. 12, in which approximately 150 people crammed inside to voice their concerns about a grant for a BearCat.
Meeting attendees heard four hours of testimony from people associated with protest groups who do not want the city to accept the $260,000 Department of Homeland Security grant for the armored vehicle. According to Concord Patch, several state representatives also gave testimony against the grant before the council voted to table a decision on the proposal until September 9.
It is not clear if the man is a member of a protest group, but his words were met with applause from attendees at the meeting.
The man also claimed that body armor and other personal equipment used by Massachusetts State Police and Boston Police following the Boston Marathon bombing was identical to that used by combat troops in Iraq, except for the color.
