"Federal officials are not the only ‘outside’ influences contributing to the militarization of the Ferguson PD. Three years ago, then-St. Louis County Police Chief Timothy Fitch was one of dozens of police officials... traveled to Israel on a training junket sponsored by the so-called Anti-Defamation League. While there, the officers were ‘briefed by senior members of the Israel National Police as well as officials from the Israel Defense Forces and Intelligence/Security organizations.’
Fitch pointed out that his police agency, whose jurisdiction includes Ferguson, ‘currently houses the St. Louis Terrorism Early Warning (TEW) group, which is the region’s fusion center serving the city of St. Louis and seven counties in Missouri and Illinois.’
A ‘fusion center’ is a Homeland Security soviet that consolidates law enforcement, military, and intelligence operations. It serves as both a collection point and local control node for the Regime’s surveillance and internal security system. Fusion centers also play an important role in indoctrinating ‘local’ police about domestic ‘threats’ as identified by groups such as the ADL and the group calling itself the Southern Poverty Law Center. The notorious 2009 report identifying the ‘modern militia movement’ as the leading ‘domestic terrorism’ threat was the product of the Missouri Information Analysis Center, which operates through a fusion center in that state. More than fifty of those entities pockmark the American landscape like syphilitic sores. "
