    OK I was curious right up to the end when this dude goes from yeah they're all over the place to "MASSACRE AT HUE!"

    UM.... What???

    OK this is disconcerting but three pictures hardly makes a case.  And hyperbole doesn't win people to your side.  So

    Oh noes  the dreaded IIIA body armor!   :panic Run!  No "regular" police officer would wear that!  I'm glad for that tip.

     :hmm Wait I wear IIIA  :facepalm never mind!

    Yeah that guy definitely has a room in his house with a pallet of tinfoil in it that he sits and strokes every night crooning "precious my precious I wont let DHS take you away from me!"

    It does look a little TFH.  OTOH, Seattle has reputation of being a Peoples Republic so it not too far out.

    I know what the Massacre @ Hue was - I'm suggesting - actually no I'll be blatant - this guy has no sense in the world of logic and he skipped the slippery slope and just can no balled off the fluffing side to the bottom

    Well, the Hue massacre was just a reference.
    Not the best, but still eerie as to why DHS is in Seattle at all.
    If I start seeing DHS cruising my neighborhood or any neighborhood around here...I'll let you know.
    Til then...

    A photo of two DHS SUVs* and of two really unidentifiable LEOs does not mean well, anything. And the accusations of OMG DHS responding to a medical emergency is also well, probably groundless. 'Round here LEOs, even federal, tend to stop and lend a hand or check on us if they come across us at the site of something going on but have not been dispatched to us.



    *The Tahoes in the photos are clearly marked as belonging to the Federal Protective Service. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Federal_Protective_Service_%28United_States%29  I'm no rocket scientist, but maybe they are there to I don't know, protect a federal building? Going to a conference?

    Can't tell about the first two pictures, but the third seems to be less than half a mile from offices for the passport agency, HUD, EPA, Coast Guard, FTA, FTC, the IRS, and a Senator's office.

    We see DHS vehicles around Montgomery, Al pretty regularly. They are usually around the federal courthouse. Whenever they get some kind of threat the area is crwaling with assorted SUVs, protective service is usually among them. Seattle has a US District Court as well as an appeals court in two different buildings. I would be surprised to not see any protective service vehicles.

    A lot of people dont realize the Seattle has a huge .gov footprint due to the size of the area they administer, lots of the regional offices for different agency handle everything from NorCal to Point Barrow.
