    To some extent it's an expansion of the MIC. Police are receiving funding related to the war on terror\war on drugs. What are they going to do, not spend it?

    Do our police have to be militarized? Is this what we want patrolling our streets?

    Is all this really necessary?
    How often have heavily armored vehicles been actually needed in a civilian policing action? It's almost always overkill, like ramming it through a "drug house" that may or may not even be the right house.

    They need to stop right meow.

    How do you blow weed exactly? I've been looking for some new techniques to spice things up a bit. I assume it has something to do with snorting because blow is cocaine and not weed?

    I have noticed lately that there must be many, many conservatives living in fear though, poor them. Must be living in hell having to look over their shoulders all the time wondering who's going to get them.
    That's because leftwingers foolishly believe the govt is their friend.

    Whoa, I never saw that coming. Whenever you're going to do that, at least give me some warning so I can raise the defense shields.

    So, since you don't do anything illegal, it is okay for cops to abuse civil rights, and act like the mob when in the process of law enforcement. That is a very faulty way to think, if you value your rights in society.
    "God is the name by which I designate all things which cross my path violently and recklessly, all things which alter my plans and intentions, and change the course of my life, for better or for worse."
