Thomasville - "The majority of us do have shotguns," says Sheriff's Deputy Mike Fielding as he checks his equipment to make sure he has everything he'll need in case of a violent riot or terrorist attack at next week's G-8 Summit.
"This is all of our turnout gear that we use while we're on call," he says. "We have to carry it around with us all the time." In it are some items he hopes he won't need. "It's the millennium gas mask, which is a very good gas mask," says Fielding. "I think it's even better than when I was in the military."
Because it's better to have it and not need it, than the other way around. It's also better for the men to be cautious of everyone, than to trust someone who could be a potential terrorist.
Police Chief David Huckstep says, "What you think you're seeing may not be what you're seeing. Remember that."
Special Response Team Commander Lt. Norman Taylor says, "The word is caution from the time we leave to the time we return next week. The word is caution. Don't trust anyone."
After some final words of warning, the men check their gear one last time. Fielding says, "Packed up and ready to go, I guess."
Ready to head into the unknown. The Thomasville Special response team plans to return June 11th.
