Need, Want, Have, Should NOT Have?

The militarization of American police forces alarms me. That spokesmen for some police departments now announce that their duty is to enforce the law and NOT to serve the people alarms me even more.

Given the lack of coverage of protests on national media of some recent large protests and the legal shift towards protecting corporations aka artificial people over flesh and blood people, I now fear the use of militarized police on US citizens exercising their constitutional rights is the coming thing for America.

Doesn’t trouble you at all? Then read this:

“Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio Forced to Return Military-grade Weapons, Vehicles”

And if you haven’t already, be sure and watch (or rewatch) John Oliver on the militarization of the police.

Now going to look up Kevlar on Google.
