Dispatches federal cops to protect government from mentally ill perps
By Kurt Nimmo | Infowars.com
Jeh Johnson, the Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, has announced “a precautionary step” to protect federal government facilities from “small-scale attacks by a lone offender or a small group of individuals. “
The DHS directive will be carried out by the Federal Protective Service, a federal law enforcement agency comprised of 900 employees and 15,000 contract security guards.
Johnson said the “reasons for this action are self-evident” following recent attacks in Canada and elsewhere. He also cited “continued public calls by terrorist organizations for attacks on the homeland.”
“Given world events, prudence dictates a heightened vigilance in the protection of U.S. government installations and our personnel.”
The move is “not based on any specific, credible information at this time indicating any active plot against government officials and law enforcement in the United States.’’
