They just ran a report on the local news on blackwater. They didn't paint a nice picture of them at all. http://www.knbc.com/news/13858496/detai ... =mainclick They are saying that they are a "private army" and how would you like a "private army" running loose on the streets of the USA not having anyone to answer to, and basically they are just "guns for hire" that will do the bidding of the "rich" person that hires them and not abiding by the law. One guy said that since they train for oversees type of work and crowd control that they could use some of those same tactics for riot control here and that wouldn't be good because they might be unlawful in enforcing order. They also interviewed a guy that is mounting a campaign against them and also their plan to open a new training base in California near the Mex border just outside of San Diego. The residents near the area were saying how they love the beauty of the area and other tree hugger stuff. They also without out right saying it that it would be bad for Blackwater to get into border patrol. They say this Private army is a bad thing and that these people will be "running around the streets with guns"... I don't know enough about blackwater to say if they are good or bad but I do know a lot of good people are with them and are protecting a lot of people. I think a we need more private security and more responsible people willing to put there life on the line for others. So is Private security a bad thing???
