    An armed invasion!!!

    'It's an armed invasion'
    Mendocino County residents determined to take land back from large-scale pot growers

    Mendocino County officials say they're determined to take back public lands from armed marijuana growers, with or without declaring a state of emergency requested by concerned citizens earlier this week.


    I've had it. We're going to get the illegal growers out of the national forest, said Mendocino County Supervisor John Pinches.

    Sheriff Tom Allman said he's already working on a plan for a large-scale attack on the illegal growers in the Mendocino National Forest.

    Armed pot growers are keeping hikers, hunters, fishermen, equestrians and cattle ranchers from utilizing land that belongs to the public, county residents said.

    People who live near and use the forest land are demanding that something be done. On Tuesday, they called on supervisors to declare a state of emergency and bring in the National Guard to help clear the forest of dangerous intruders.

    It's an armed invasion of American soil, said Ann Marie Bauer, a fifth generation rancher in Round Valley.


    Rest at link.....

    It has gotten worse here. We tell people not to hike in the forests/public lands as there is a good chance they won't come out. There are advisarys all over the place because of this. We had major wild fires a couple of years ago. The firefighters were being shot at along with their aircraft.

    Calling in the National Guard seems like a great idea. These getting a lot worse feelings seem to be the par for many things, not just this I'm afraid.

    I don't think political leaders have the stones to do what's necessary to clean out that forest. When cops have to be pulled out constantly and put on admin leave for shooting growers there won't be the political will to support them.

    I predict a dog and pony show that accomplishes little besides clearing small areas near residential areas.

    A Sheriff with a decent SWAT team could make a huge dent, if the people were chosen carefully.

    You'd have to do it in fire teams, and you'd have to be prepared to streamline the OIS process, because there would be a mess of them.

    Enlisting as reserves folks with prior military training in anything from enhanced light infantry to force protection would be a good step.

    I agree, it can be done. I don't think the political will is there to do it though.

    There is a part time team for the county. It usually takes around 3 hours to call them in because of how spread out they are. They also make up a good portion of the patrol staff. As far as reserves, they would have to go through the POST academy before they would be eligible to even be reserves in this state.

    So do that, it isn't rocket science.

    Any SO should be able to hold an academy with a little effort.

    If the Sheriff is serious about it, time to put up or shut up.

    SO can't put on an academy, has to be a "certified" school from POST and is over 6 months long

    If they went to the emergency declaration part they were discussing the governor could send in the national guard to "assist" officers/deputies with enforcement.
