    SWAT has been around a while haven't they ?

    It was a free Country then, why are things so different now ?

    And where's the faux outrage for the Federal agencies that have run around like weekend warriors ?

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?
    Simple answer? Media use of buzzwords. "Militarization" sounds awful. Makes us think of Gestapo. Right? I mean anyone who doesn't understand what the police use the grenade launchers for anyway.

    I would honestly like to see some law enforcementation of equipment. There are a lot of things the police could probably redesign to make better for their job. Handcuffs? Batons? Paintball guns (pepper ball guns)?

    I think people are upset that there isn't a lot of middle ground responses for police. They have their hands, baton, taser, and a gun. If they had better equipment to stand off with...that could be a start.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    How original, I've never heard that one before. But you don't need to worry, as soon as I am able to leave I will be moving too fast for some door to hit me anywhere.

    We have the right to criticize their stupidity.

    Where is the artillery? Heavy weapons? Gunships? Tanks? All I see are some cops sporting equipment that is defensive in nature. Armies are an offensive orginization.

    The protest gesture is an unadulterated lie! Brown never put his hands up and shouted "Don't shoot". Do we need to draw a picture for you?

    Gee whiz. If Brown had done that, he'd have gotten a minor beef, that the cop may not even had done anything about, but then, that's not what he did, is it?

    This whole thing appears to be designed to detract from the facts of the case in favor of a dishonest and inaccurate narrative.

    Cops aren't the ones that are killing the vast majority of the black male youth. Other black male youths are.
    This about the race card, not reducing murders.
