    How many people died in Ferguson because of cops in that gear?
    I would pretty much guarantee that more people died in Chicago in November because of gang violence and thuggery than died at the hands of men who are dressed like that in the last 5 years.

    They only tend to do it on days that end in a "y".

    But normally when they do it, it isn't showboating that perpetrates a lie that needs to stop before already bad situations escalate even further and more innocent citizens' places of business are destroyed.

    Looks like a lot of protection for the police. We sure don't want that! I heard a SWAT guy talking about how they are able to rescue people and save people when they have these type of armored vehicles. What about tanks, rocket launchers, attack fighters, etc...? I don't see any of those offensive weapons in use. Any police departments have cruise missiles?

    You are against police using tear gas and having body armor, like the last photo? Why in the world would you be against that?

    Problem there is that might be the cop's last assessment.

    You have no idea about these sorts of situations, do you?

    Everyone on the left is now an expert on what the cop should have done in those 90 seconds. This huge, powerful man is trying to kill you. A tremendous danger to the public. What do you do? Don't go after him? Then what do you say when he harms someone? The cop would be responsible.

    He then comes after the cop. That man made his choices. Why doesn't anyone one on the left question why he charged a police officer with a gun instead of running away? He left the cop with one option, unless you consider letting Michael Brown kill him as another viable option.

    Right. Even the autopsy shows how hard it is to accurately shoot someone who's coming at you.

    The part that is just annoying is the quest for 'the cause'.

    -In August, a cop shoots an 18 year old. Ohmigawd!!! COPS are murdering people in broad daylight! He was executed. He had his hands up! Evil cops! lets riot and loot!
    -They riot and loot and set half the town on fire and the police respond by holding lines. Not by attacking them, but by holding lines. Response? Ohmigawd! Militarized police! Its their fault! Evil militarized police!
    -Riots continue, governor doesnt send in the National Guard and its Ohmigawd!!! Why didnt they send IN the military!!!
    -Grand jury doesnt indict based on the actual evidence and its Ohmigawd! Evil justice system! No justice no peace! The prosecutorrigged the hearing, we must loot and riot, riot and loot! Hands up, dont shoot! Evil corrupt justice system lets white cop get away with killing young black man. Black lives matter!
    -Turns out...physical evidence, autopsies, and eyewitness statements all support the officers version and many of the eyewitness are PROVEN to be liars (and admit it) and its Ohmigawd!!! Evil cops, evil justice system, militarized cops!

    Cops.Cops not wearing body cameras. Cops in militarized gear. All of it is built on what has been proven to be a lie. But dont let the facts get in the way of a good 'cause'. All they have to do is FIND one.

    Good thing they don't patrol with those. Like ever.
