    Is America at the point, were gonna have to live like red dawn? Reading through Drudge. Listening to people around me.

    Military surplus to police departments? Wtf

    Choke down on ammo for us, yet kazillion of 40s are getting bought for them.

    The on going brain wash of our police. To slowly grow the view, citizens are suspects, enemies and/or threats. Plus the surplus of laws, that make it damn near impossible. Simply walking down the street and not break 3 laws.

    Crazy ass gun laws. People are beginning themselves to go through a ffl. For a private sale. Something this gov wants. Really?

    This whole mess gives you some weird uncool feelings.

    Huh? I know some really bad LEO's but I also know and have even recently met some really good ones. Only "brainwashing" might be going on in states where they are already deep blue and think people need to be dependent on government for everything already.

    Show me some brainwashed TX LEO's please.

    A police department running under the guildlines of the "Broken Windows Theory" is an example. The SOP of such, makes police more aggressive on smaller crimes. Instead of moderated style of law enforcement. You have an out police intervention for the smallest of crime.

    Brainwash as in, why would a SWAT officer suit up. Never asking why military style police force is being used on his fellow citizen? For crimes that have routinely been solved with out SWAT for decades. He simply marches on. Follows his "training". To the officer himself. Its the right thing to do. To show his loyalty, hell follow his orders.

    And don't forget, every day another government agency gets its own police force. Now we have National Weather Service, Social Security Administration, and even the EPA with tons of ammo.

    hill co.

    1. To help protect him from bullets and allow him to carry essential gear.

    2. What "military style police force"? Military borrowed tactic from swat when it began training for urban combat situations. If anything we have a civilian style military force when it comes to those tactics.

    3. What crimes are you referring to? And why should the police not improve their strategies?

    4. Who is "marching on"? Sounds like pure speculation to me.

    I'm all for questioning authority. In a different thread I am seriously wanting to know why Dallas County Sheriff thinks they need an MRAP.

    At the same time, those LEO's are your neighbors. Some of them are my friends. Some of them are family to others on this forum, or currently work in the field. You betcha that there are some dinks in uniform, any uniform, that will follow orders without question. There are others that will not act against their conscience.

    Let's be careful about painting any group with a broad brush. I'm not very happy with the direction of this country right now or its leadership, but at the same time I see no point in taking cheap shots at any one group. We all own this mess on some level.
