Exclamation HIGH ALERT: Cop-Killing Gangsters Now Calling For Murder of FIREFIGHTERS

HEADS UP!

Quote:
We are calling on the gangs across the nation! Attack everything in blue except the mailman, unless he is carrying more than mail! and As you fight, remember that the fireman and the police are on the same side. Dont be fooled! were parts of the threat that was posted to Facebook.

The post calls for rival gangs, the Crips and Bloods to unite against their mutual enemy and they are calling for bloodshed. The St. Louis Fusion Center: Terrorism Early Warning group sent out the social media post to alert first responders. Former FBI agent, Michael Tabman expresses his disdain after hearing of these horrible threats: I hate to see the firefighters get caught up in that. They cant defend themselves as well as police officers can.

Just remember the standard SOP for firefighters in body armor- Full wildland or structure coat covering up all part of the armor, nothing showing. Thus standard was developed so we dont tip off the general public we are wearing police type gear underneath and the bright yellow coats easily ID us as fire personnel, not law enforcement.

Even if you have a vest on, dont let it be obvious...

Two thoughts.
1) This is sad.
2) What's another 20# for a vest? :rolleyes:

i worked for a department in TX at one point, and we were required to wear our issued vests on any penetrating trauma calls (GSWs, stabbing, etc) as well as when forcing entry into a residence..

i also know a few guys that work for a big texas city that said guys on there department were being targeted because they looked like cops.. the department was told that you shouldn't wear your uniform to and from work and maybe take different routes when returning home.

its sad that this is what the world is coming to.

The picture shows firefighting with a bullet proof vest. You wear woodland gear and only defensive operations.

In the 1992 LA Riots, we were issued body armor to wear under our turnouts. There never were any SOPs at the time, but we were given some verbal directives. I grabbed that photo because it looks like the FF that is fast-walking is wearing a vest under his wildland coat.
