SkyEye 13 HD was over the south side where at first look, it appeared there was a massive SWAT scene happening.

With military helicopters flying above her southeast Houston neighborhood, Frances Jerrals didn’t know what to think.

“When you see this, you think the worst. When you hear this, you think the worst,” Jerrals said.

And so, she passed along her concern.

“She told me ‘don’t come home it sounds like we’re in a war zone. Guns, shooting, helicopters flying around the house,'” Isaac Robertson Jr. said.

The U.S. Army along with other agencies took over the old Carnegie Vanguard High School near Scott and Airport. There were armed men in fatigues, plenty of weapons and what many thought were real live rounds

“I felt like I was in a warzone.” Jerrals said. “It was nonstop. I was terrified.”

Turns out, it was a multi-agency training drill that Jerrals wished would have come with warning.

    It is not a good idea to blend Federal law enforcement agencies and the Military,it smacks of Gestapo and SS.Return Posse Comitatus.It is especially vital that we do because the President self proclaimed himself as a GLOBAL citizen and he has bowed to foreign rulers.We do not need nor want a police state.I really do not believe that Americans will allow it.American civilians vastly outnumber the Fed agencies and military combined.Let’s restore America and say no to a police state.
