Training for WHAT??? (updated)

SkyEye 13 HD was over the south side where at first look, it appears there's a massive SWAT scene happening.

People have been calling police, as well as our newsroom, saying they're hearing gunshots in the area of Scott and Airport. It turns out, the Army says, it's a multi-agency training drill. They're doing it at the old Carnegie High School.
Helicopters were also involved. The Army isn't giving any details of what the training is about.
So if you see the helicopters or hear gunfire, it's only a drill.

Can anybody explain to me just exactly what the US Army is training for in an American city?

And this happened in Miami:

Jokes about black helicopters have become less funny in light of the government terrifying citizens in downtown Miami by roaring through in Blackhawks firing blanks from machine guns.
Whether the authorities are trying to scare us, whether they are gearing up for the civil war Obama appears determined to provoke, or whether they are just too dumb to understand this was a bad idea, we are reminded once again that they hold more power than it would be wise to trust them with.

If they're training for something overseas, then why in the fuck are the local police involved in this joint training exercise?
