    Major Urban Cities like Chicago.....yeah they are militarized. Not to many peoples liking either. Especially when you add corruption with LE's.
    It's odd to see troops camouflaged with gear intended for jungle use on the streets of Ferguson, Missouri. 'Boots on the ground' is like real estate investing, it seems. Location location, etc.

    Because it's ok to shoot a black kid if you're black yourself, is what he's saying. The cop's actions were only wrong because he's white.

    Or we can forget about color altogether rather than working on fractions of society and what the make-up of Blacks, Women, the physically handicapped, etc. are. As long as everything is fair according to the standards required, there should not be a problem. Ability tends to be the great equalizer.

    In the case of Riot Police, which seems to be your major concern and not SWAT teams, they only come out when things have gotten out of control and your beat cops can't handle the problem with current gear, and SWAT isn't large enough to do so. Let me ask you this; what's the difference in a bunch of NG walking around in riot gear, as opposed to those same beat cops (that in an ideal world already have connections with the community) walking about in the same riot gear?
    You are ignoring what police chiefs are saying, and they know far more than you. In his book, 'Rise of the Warrior Cop, (written by a retired Cop) RB explains its a generational issue. Older and retired Cops are VERY concerned about it, while the younger ones aren't. And they're making more younger ones. So...........unless sound minded legislators prevail in pushing this crap back, we'll be seeing more of it, to your excitement.

    Even if you cut off the supply of military equipment to police forces, those young cops will stop be there. They'll still continue to bust down doors with gear they can get elsewhere. In other words, the problem is still there.

    And I wasn't ignoring it, I was dismissing it. There's a difference Monte..

    If we didn't have well heeled gangs and cartels duking it out with the cops and each other over turf, maybe we wouldn't need militarized police forces. It seems to me that there is an obvious way to at least reduce the incidence of violence in this country, and perhaps not have to pay to have so many people locked up as well.

    Also Friday, the Justice Department confirmed in a statement that FBI agents had conducted several interviews with witnesses as part of a civil-rights investigation into Brown's death. In the days ahead, the agents planned to canvass the neighborhood where the shooting happened, seeking more information, the statement said.....snip~
