    Damn...are you lying about reading Jango's link? You sure don't seem to know what that link had to say.

    You just keep on shining a bright light on your ignorance, darling.

Civil war or major protests or a bigger protection of terrorism who the heck knows right? Well he certainly seems to jump to conclusion that constitutionalists are the first target in their training as to why he needs the weapons, he didn't even say terrorists he said constitutionalist, and this attitude was trained there is seriously no question this is fact
    IMO, I think other groups are more threatening than the fringe constitutionalist groups right now. I deduct this from their reactions to current protest. They don't want too many people to speak out of line.

    I agree with you, however your opinion on who's a threat isn't relevant since this is a police officers opinion, an opinion he's obviously been trained to have because there's no rational reason why else he would come to that conclusion

    Any government that sees peaceful protesters (constitutionalists are peaceful, what they are showing is that they won't be AFRAID TO USE force IF NECESSARY) as a threat is a terrible and ****ed up government.

    My point is they are using it on peaceful protestors. That is exactly where we've seen it used.

    What is notable is what the Deputy said.

    First, that the department must have an armored personnel carry because people have guns in their County. Oh really? Is that some new OMG?

    But what matters was how he referred to "constitutionalists" who have firearms. Who are they to that deputy? In his exact word "the enemy." The armored personnel carrier is to battle the "enemy." Who is the enemy?"

    Americans who believe in the 2nd amendment, that is who is the enemy.

    It's not rioting they are worried about.. they can smash that pretty quickly. What they are worried about is armed population that's armed.

It makes you think about the actual training these police officers are undergoing, in retrospect the officer should've said the reason we have this tank is to protect constitutionalists
    Youre OP was not clear. Perhaps if you followed the rules next time.

    They only need to be worried about that if they oppress people. Instead they should focus on the people actually causing all the violence. Race baiters, environmental terrorists, islamic fascists.
