    I'll bet nobody has kept records, though.
    What military equipment are you referring to?

    SWAT already uses much of the gear you are referring to, are you saying we need to get rid of SWAT teams as well?

    Be more specific. Or, admit you're barking up the wrong tree.

    You questioned how to demilitarize police departments, and I answered.

    Do you need pictures?

    Sure. Post pictures so I can slay your argument.

    Can't prove your point, can you? No surprise.

    While police have a few surplus armored vehicles, which are intended to be used for protection, only, because they're not armed, they don't possess the same offensive capabilities as the Army: no indirect fire weapons, no machine guns, no anti-armor weapons, no fragmentation weapons, no automatic weapons, no tanks, no infantry fighting vehicles, no gunships. So, unless you mean that cops should give their personal protection, there isn't much de-militarizing to do.

    BTW, Obama has no business speaking about this state issue.
    Trump Attacked A Syrian Airfield. Trump will be a one-term president.
