    To my comment, I did note that it was after 9/11 and after Homeland Security was first created and funded. If Homeland Security has been disbanded, defunded, or policies changed so that Homeland Security funds don't go to local police departments now that the sainted Obama is in charge, I'll accept you point about Bush. Otherwise, it's just idiotic nonsense.
    Nothing lost to civil liberty is ever regained. Obama isn't and won't repair that, it will continue to deteriorate, more losses next administration.

    What do you mean do I like our Budding Police and how is it in comparison to being constitutionally minded. Can I not be constitutionally minded and still like the Budding Police?

    With the conflicting stories and the cop not knowing he had robbed any place.....Its still questionable as to why he shot an unarmed individual. It says there was a scuffle and then Brown attempted to flee. Could be Brown panicked. Again.....I am questioning the use of lethal force. For stopping someone that was walking down the middle of the street. Since the Cop did not know he was a suspect at that time. If he was fleeing....why didn't he shoot him in the leg or the ass?

    This month, more Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected vehicles (MRAPs) have found their way from the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq to the Main Streets of America. These are just the latest acquisitions in a growing practice by Pentagon thatís militarizing Americaís municipal police forces.

    Police departments in Boise and Nampa, Idaho, each acquired an MRAP, as did the force in High Springs, Florida. The offer of war-ready machinery, at practically no cost, has proven hard to resist for local police departments. Increasingly, they are looking like soldiers equipped for battle.

    The growing similarity between our domestic police forces and the U.S. military is a result of the Pentagonís 1033 Program. This allows the Defense Department to donate surplus military equipment and weapons to law enforcement agencies. In addition to the frightening presence of paramilitary weapons in American towns, the program has led to rampant fraud and abuse.

    The public would be better served if these officers had dash cams and body cams instead MRAPs.

    And we could pump all the money we wanted into those schools, hire the best teachers available, and as long as the kids there were raised with the idea that they were being kept down by whitey, didn't have fathers to teach them how men should behave, and were constantly exposed to the gang culture, nothing would change.

    Just do a google search to find out the people and institutions that are concerned about the militarisation of local police and its effects to civil liberty, our constitutional rights. Anyone who supports it has contempt for the American constitution.

    So, in other words, the sainted Obama could do something about it but won't and yet your primary concern is Bush started it. Were the problems that concern you evident and relevant during the Bush Presidency, or have they started to become a problem in recent years? Likewise, do you still blame Abraham Lincoln for the state of federal income taxes today?

    Yes and yes. And don't refer to Obama as sainted when addressing me, it shows your lack of honesty or a comprehension deficiency. Btw, how's Harper running things up there.

    I think the Officers would be better served in said situation as well.
