The police department in Guthrie, Oklahoma, recently purchased an armored vehicle through a military surplus program.

The Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle (MRAP), which was once used in the Middle East, was purchased with $2,000 in stolen seized drug money (civil asset forfeiture, anyone?).

Some might think that’s a pretty good deal – the military pays around $730,000 for each MRAP.

Police Chief Damon Devereaux is pretty excited about the department’s new toy. He told News9 that the vehicle is going to be a useful tool:

“It’s the best way to put people in harm’s way safely. Or get them out of harm’s way.

“If we have a subject that’s in a house that’s barricaded in the house, a bad guy, we can drive this to the neighbor’s house to get them out safely we can use it to get close to the house to start communication with them.”

He told Fox25:

“This vehicle is able to go through four to five feet of water and our tactical team’s gonna use it for high risk drug warrants.”

Not everyone shares Devereaux’s enthusiasm for the newest addition to the police department’s fleet, as Rep. Jason Murphey (R-Guthrie) explains:

“A lot of taxpayers and citizens, I think, are very uncomfortable with the idea of military equipment rolling through their cities.

“Does even that minimal cost justify the need for the equipment? How many times are these pieces really going to be deployed?”

According to USA.com, the total population of Guthrie in 2010 was 10,191. The city’s crime rate is lower than the Oklahoma average crime rate and is lower than the national average crime rate.

Four Out of Eight Patients Die of Mystery Illness in Montgomery County, Texas | The Daily Sheeple

Four Out of Eight Patients Die of Mystery Illness in Montgomery County, Texas | The Daily Sheeple.

Conroe Regional Medical Center where the patients are being treated

A mystery illness in Montgomery County, Texas has killed four of the eight people suffering from it, and two more are critically ill.

A report from KHOU.com quotes Dr Mark Escott, Mongomery County Medical Director as saying:

“We don’t currently have a diagnosis for what has caused those illnesses. Other health departments will need to be looking for cases like this to make sure that we haven’t missed cases.”

“Eight serious cases at a local hospital that developed with influenza-like symptoms that developed serious complications, including death for four of those eight patients. The big worry about a situation like this is, ‘Could this be a novel flu of some sort?’” Escott explained.

“It could certainly be lots of other viruses or other diseases but that is the big concern.”

All of the patients tested negative for known strains of influenza, even though they all presented with influenza-like illness. (ILI). There has been around 2000 cases of influenza-like illness in Montgomery County so far this year, but these cases are different in both severity and outcome.

All the patients have been between the ages of 41 and 68.

Dathany Reed was the youngest to die. The 41 year old took a sick day from work and went to the doctors. He came home with several prescriptions and told his mother he was feeling very unwell. The next day the father of three was on life support. He turned 41 on November 30th and died on December 5th with doctors still not knowing what killed him.

Other hospitals in the area are looking at their case loads to see if they have any patients who are undiagnosed, and that may be suffering from the mystery ailment.

Health officials are urging people to maintain hand hygiene and to cover their nose and mouth when they cough or sneeze, preferably with a disposable tissue or the crook of their arm. If people do cough or sneeze into their hands they are advised to wash them immediately.

Why I Won’t Be Charitable When The SHTF | The Daily Sheeple

Why I Won’t Be Charitable When The SHTF | The Daily Sheeple. (FULL ARTICLE)

I have learned a great deal since I came on board here at The Daily Sheeple. I have read and listened to the opinions of many who are far further down the line of preparedness than I am, and although it may make me unpopular, I disagree with a some of what they say.

Of course agreeing or disagreeing with someone is purely personal choice. I am not saying they are wrong, just that I disagree with them.

Take for instance the charity aspect of prepping.

Many of the big names in prepping advocate that we should show solid Christian values in times of crisis and lay aside some essential items to give away to those that pass through who are less fortunate that ourselves.

NOT A CHANCE.

It has nothing to do with the fact that I have prepared, that I have scrimped and saved, and they possibly have not. It has nothing to do with greed on my part and to hell with all others. It has to do with the survival of my family.

A great deal is made on all prepping sites about OPSEC. Keeping low and not attracting attention, and this is where the trouble starts.

I know for a fact that if I had been given food, water and maybe a few other essential items by someone I passed along the way I would remember them.

I know that if the survival of my children was at stake and I couldn’t provide for them I would revisit the person that had assisted me in the hope of getting more supplies.

I know I would do anything I had to do to feed my kids, to keep them alive. Now if I could trade something, work for the food I would certainly do so. What happens though if the answer is no, we’re fine thanks, off you go?

Think about this….
