    Rumor has it that the "protestors" are using Baofeng UV-5Rs on GMRS freqs for coordination, since the cell towers are pretty hammered in those areas.

    Has anyone heard anything in the Hot areas?

    As for large gatherings of any persuasion, it’s obvious that cell phones are numeral uno. Blister pack FRS walkies come in at a distant second, coupled with a few CB’s in the mobiles. I don’t doubt that some Biofengs are being used on whatever frequency, but mostly cheap FRS walkies that share much of the same frequencies as GMRS.

    Let's use the cell phone tower data to determine who is being "imported" from outside of the area, in order to participate in these riots. These are normal tools law enforcement typically uses, when they want to stop crime...

    When you find out many traveled from a distance, along the same path, find out who paid to make that path available to them all?

    It is truly ridiculous these outsiders come into Louisville, KY and these marches are held in unrelated areas. Then for weeks there are shooting and killings where there were none in recent history. Of course no one sees anything. I guess that's where the silence=violence is related.

    We've got our town trashed by protesters, one cited and arrested - charged with incite to riot, with their "Facebook Public" post used to round up the others involved and "invited" to participate, then when they were released on bond - all booked out of town.

    Gee, Wonder Why...

    All "they" have to do is use a cheap throw away Tracphone. buy an airtime card from WalMart.
    There is nothing to be traced back to the user.

    I have a "regular" cell and I also have a "throw away" fone, it's only about $10/mo.

    George didn't pay the extra $10 on top of transportation fees and these hoodlums are far too ignorant to plan ahead and think they could be traced by their personal phones.

    People who do not take ownership of their destiny are destined to be victims forever. If you hide behind cowardice then your situation is clear and hopeless.

    Got a haircut awhile back at a barbershop nearby to Joplin led me to believe same (possible). But, show me as I don’t take well to “stories”.

    Cofer Black built a full-fledged CIA-headquarters for WalMart in Bentonville. How many tens of millions did they openly give BLM?

    W-M (by itself) has daily intakes of $400-million. Times 365. Just one day hires thousands of organizers at $10k month tax-free for a year. (The difficulty of hiding .003% of annual revenues?) A staff of 75 for every single state.

    It’s only one corporation, big as it is. Hundreds are on-board. Five hedge-fund managers, alone, control corporations employing 24-million Americans.

    “Stories” and practice runs (both sides of an issue controlled) make Joplin, MO a perfect test ground given location, size and demographics. The circus done come to town!

    The ADL and their minions blackmail/control every elected county official in this country. Caught in the ‘90s with files on two million Americans. Trillions at stake, with billions to spend.

    What story men believe not so important (truth irrelevant), but knowing the wording (the felicitous phrasing) makes them act, well, . . . that’s money in the bank.

    Hot air from a sheriff doesn’t mean much. Until

    (An example of a VERY well-told story: by NC Scout, “Reality Check”; 9/5/20 on AmPart. Doesn’t get better than this. Note structure: rhythm & tempo. Cannot strongly enough recommend two readings a few days apart).

    When trust extends to those around you, expect it’s already been gamed. Cambodia or Hong Kong or Cairo. Peking or Budapest. (All recent).
