Obama: Review military equipment for police
Obama orders review of military equipment sold to cops - CNN.com
So how do others feel about this? I suggest being careful about taking away things like stun grenades and armor when police are frequently dealing with gangbangers with AKs and "blank the police" mentalities.
I understand the whole "militarization" thing, but our military saw a shift to law enforcement tactics in the recent stint as occupation forces. So sure there is a blurred line, but equipment that saves the lives of cops is not exactly bad. Why wouldn't you want bullet resistant trucks and body armor and stun grenades that allow police to STUN an unruly suspect rather than KILLING them. Or stun a hostage taker long enough to save a hostage.
