    I like the first. Not nervous about approaching and asking for directions....don't have to worry about them executing your dog....

    How many of these stand-offs do we see? The apologists will refer to L.A....about 20 years ago.

    See, SWAT has the toys.

    Problem is, all cops now look like swat, carry swat gear, dress like they are about to invade poland, and generally hold the same mindset as SWAT....jackboot.

    Now swat seems to think this is Afghanistan....they forget about that whole constitution thing.
    The no-knocks (which recently got two cops killed in TX, and 6 killed in NH), the dog executions, the 'whoops wrong house' that seems to be happening more and more. I'm sorry, but if someone kicks in my door without announcing themselves...to me....I assume home invasion, and I grab my AR and plate carrier sitting on top of it. How it goes from there...well that's not in my hands anymore, but I shoot competitively (3-gun) and it will hell for anyone that is invading my home, I am no push-over joe bob rocking a mossberg 500. The biggest threat we face right now as a country is the depletion of the 4th, 10th, and 2nd amendments. This new mentality indoctrinated in the academy that this is a warzone is a serious issue. They behave like everyone is a potential enemy combatant, not a citizen with rights.

    Basically, militarization of the police is a HUGE issue.

    The high and tight fellows I'm assuming are fresh academy grads or new-ish guys? Very different attitude from the old school guys. That's the case up here in MA at least.

    I don't think anyone is suggesting that bloused pant legs or short hair is militarization.

    And where do you think the term "jack booted thug" came from. My father was a motorcycle cop in DC for many years, even wore leather gauntlet gloves. All buckled down he looked like he was ready for combat. Because he was.
    You people that never once strapped on a uniform other than little league need to take a chill pill.

    Just to check, were you suggesting that bloused pants and short hair is militarization?
