Tyler Durden's picture


UPDATE: An “all clear” was issued shortly before 10 a.m., according to Fort Lee media relations. No other information at this time.

According to Facebook:

“An active shooter incident has been reported on Fort Lee at CASCOM HQ, Bldg. 5020.


All personnel should enact active shooter protocols immediately. The installation is being locked down until further notice. More info to follow.”


CASCOM stands for Combined Arms Support Command.


"We’ve had an active shooter incident," said Stephen Baker, a post spokesman. "The installation is locked down... it is still active," he said at 9:34 a.m.

Active shooter protocol would logically entail drawing your service pistol and abrubtly ending the activity. Or rifle, if handy.

Oh, but this is the dis-armed armed forces.

Fort Lee is in New Jersey, for those not familiar with it.  So it could just be somebody who got fed up with their property taxes.

Yeah, I fucked up.  There is a TOWN called Fort Lee in NJ, but not a military base.  Fort Lee (the military base) is in Virginia, as corrected, above.  Dix is the base in NJ, just as you say.

You have to give him kudos for the "tired of paying Jersey property taxes line."

But, isn't that why they've practically taken everyone's guns away in Jersey?

To keep them from starting a new anti property tax revolution?

Having worked in Jersey, but not being a Jersey native I knew people that had guns. But, they needed a permit from their township just to buy one and keep it in the house and another permit to transport anywhere in the state.

And, if gun hating liberals ran your township, which in Jersey was more likely than Obunga staying off the golf course, then you could be up shits creek if you wanted that permit.

If they squeezed an army base into the Ftl Lee NJ area (near the GW Bridge) it would have to be the size of a telephone booth.

"Hurry, grab scissors"

I believe you are supposed to piss and shit yourself.  Oh wait, thats for rape.  In the case of a shooter, you're supposed to just give up your life in the hopes that your death precipitates the coming of the liberal/Statist utopia.

Unfortunately, the 'young, dumb, & full of cum' 18 year olds often make such stupid decisions on their own.
Friends of the family's kid signed up for an extended enlistment in the Army. Went in to be a M.P. (Military Police). - - The military is pushing for lots of new MPs. For domestic use ? -- While in Korea, was told that a tour in Iraq 'would enhance his career'. So he requested assignment there. Every bit of the way, his parents were appalled. His mother told me that when he volunteered for Iraq she "coulda killed him for doing that !"

This fellow was a good kid - a jock. He's a good young man. Has hated being an MP and hated the Army. He's very happy to be getting out in a few months. I woulda worried about him if he liked it.

The lesson ? Set them straight when they're real young - jr high school. Especially with jock kids who like team sports and doing things physical. The recruiters will be working on them. You see gear like Humvees & the military at all sorts of public events. PR. Recruiting when they're still very young.

PS - I'm from a military family, was an 'Army brat' and also served.

See the NCLB law complete with loopholes on just how they target them for recruitment.

Good articles for those trying to dissuade someone from 'volunteering'.

You also might want to take the young potential volunteer to a VA hospital and have him/her visit with some of the veterans there.

They always have. They always tend to go after the easily programmed types or those that come from troubled backgrounds looking to straighten themselves out.

Im my personal experience every guy I went to school with who joined the military out of HS were a bunch of first class fuck ups. Though I will admit the military did also straighten them all out and they've all went on to be good citizens afterwards at least the ones I've had contact with in the past few years.

"Not in America... Not yet."

It's the implied threat.

Remember Hank Paulson said there would be martial law and troops on the streets if congress didn't bail out the banks.

They use that threat to terrorize the citizenry - whether the vast majority of servicemen know that, or not.

It's about that time in the news cycle again. Quick ram through some legislation and send out the fund raising letters. Election time is just around the corner. In the mean time our trained military people are told to hide under a desk and grab a pair of scissors.
