To the editor:
An article in a local paper from Sept. 5 was titled, Social Security: At ease, recipients, bullets are not for you: Agency quickly shoots down Internet theories of confrontation about its purchase of ammunition.
The article states that the 295 Social Security agents who investigate fraud and other crimes received 590 hollow-point bullets per agent. Hollow-point bullets are so lethal the Geneva Convention does not allow their use on the battlefield in time of war. Hollow-point bullets don't just stop or hurt people; they penetrate the body, flatten out, fragment and thus cause maximum damage to the body's organs. Death often follows.
Hollow-point bullets are designed for one thing; close quarter killing of human beings. The Department of Homeland Security has more than 450 million rounds of hollow-point shells-banned by the Geneva Conventions- and over a billion rounds of various other ammunitions. That's enough to kill everyone in America many times over. Shelter Direct, the manufacturer of bulletproof checkpoint booths, has received an order from the Department of Homeland Security for 9,300 units. Some believe DHS sees a revolution coming in the future. The Internet sites, www.infowars.com , www.shadowstats.com , and www.ae911truth.net (which produced a documentary shown the week of Sept. 3 on PBS - Google Richard Gage) should open up the eyes of any critical thinking person as to what are conspiracy facts not theories.
