Gunny: I'm assuming you disagree with Hanauer's position against militarization of police?
That or in some ironic way find that 594's passing may potentially cause LE to take actions that make them look worse?
I don't think that PD's getting surplus military equipment is a new thing, or all that troublesome on it's own:
You could take away all of the surplus flight suits, rifles , etc. that they can get on the 1033 program, and it won't make a bad " us -vs- them" mindset go away, or make the tactics any better.
This article does speak volumes about how Hanauer sees other people and who he thinks that all of these civic officials serve.
I'm sorry, but did you just post a picture from the Andy Griffith show to make a point about it being OK to pass military gear to our local law enforcement?
That's some funny bubblegum right there.
Hanauer is just another, "only the police and military should have guns" dufus.
Be careful for what you wish for you deluded progressive drones. Eventually your money won't keep you safe from "them" either, and you may find your head being sawed off from your body.
...just not in "his" neighborhood .
The LEO community are trained that there is a war out there and the general public are the enemy. When you understand this you then understand everything you see the LEO community doing.
Moreover, you really don't have rights, you have privileges. Understand this and you won't get so become upset about infringement upon your privileges - that's the nature of privileges.
Lastly, we are not a Constitutional Republic, we are a Representative Democracy. This bodes well with the privileges. (Sorry, Ben. We couldn't keep it)
Sorry to digress but the militarization of our LEO is a big picture thing and thought I would paint some of it.
I reject your reality and substitute my own!
