    Urban Platoon to keep the kids alive


    How urban parents can keep their kids alive.
    Declare war on urban shooting!


    Call in the Army to train in real urban warfare.


    Why should the army do this? For real live urban warfare training for the type of warfare we are now fighting around the world. We commit these forces to foreign hotspots – what's more of a hotspot than where our own kids are being killed in their own neighborhoods?


    The key to stop urban shootings…pay big money for
    inside gang information on when shootings will happen.


    Send in recon drones to surprise the shooters.
    Drop soldiers in to abort the gunfire…using the latest non-lethal
    weapons to prevent innocent casualties.


    Bag the shooters to get them and their guns off the street.


    Track the shooters that get away by drone and satellite
    to avoid high-speed chases and more innocent casualties.


    How do they pay the informers to turn in the shooters?
    The Army films their urban operations and sells it to news stations and TV shows
    for big bucks. It's high-drama, high-stakes capitalism!


    Neighborhoods win…the army wins…kids live to be somebody…
    and get a front row seat to superhero role models in action.


    The creator of this video grew up in a fantastic urban neighborhood for kids – and escaped it for the army just before it turned into one of the deadliest in the U.S.


    In the decades after, it has only gotten worse despite the well-intentioned efforts of concerned residents, clergy, politicians and police.


    The military has the tech, the know-how and the talent to pull this off. They are already training for this type of warfare in multi-million, even billion dollar simulated urban settings where they don't get an inch of the real live combat training they can in our own terror-ridden neighborhoods.


    Change the name of your neighborhood to Baghdad.


    And keep firing the web address of this video at your aldermen, mayors, senators, congressmen and the president until they send in an Urban Platoon to stop the bloodshed in your neighborhood: http://youtu.be/Fi5jx10b0AU
