Camo Required

Yuri's second example comes from yet a different source:

Yuri, although you claimed both these articles are on the "right wing" sites, I believe this is more so, but the last one stinks of "left wing." Can't we all get along with both wings? Like a birdie? LMAO. I crack myself up.

Ok. Again...media is going to blow these isolated incidents out into MARTIAL LAW. It's a turtle takeover. I mean, come on. We are all smarter than that.

From the excerpt below, I think this author really does not have an idea of what goes on behind the scenes at the cop shop. 

"The last thing this country needs is gun-toting government bureaucrats with battering rams as they carry out a liberal agenda. Not only is this level of force entirely inappropriate for such government agencies in a free society, but it is almost certain to empower untrained amateurs to make huge mistakes with deadly consequences."

Really? This is a right winger? "Gun-toting?" I mean, all I can say is WHAT THE FUCK do you think cops are going to tote around? Purses?  Perhaps we need to go back to what changed the cop world. 911. 

This was not a liberal president. It was the era of George Bush. SWAT is not new. It's been around for years. It has just gotten better. We use robots. We use cool things. We have military surplus. 

It is not a liberal agenda. It is just police agencies growing with the times through each Presidential administration. And we can thank Homeland Security and grants for our great equipment. 

Thank the terrorists for the police changes! Ok. Stepping down from my girl emotional rant. 

These SWAT incidents are going to happen with the more frequent use in police work. Just like anything...there are going to be errors. There are going to media blitzes to try to drag the officers into the dirt or skew something away from reality. 

This is what I have to say about nay-sayers and media. Go behind the scenes. 

Then talk to me.

I feel that extremism on EITHER side of the aisle is just ASKING for t-r-o-u-b-l-e-!
(and sadly, there doesn't seem to be a lack of those pushing it)

Yes, we can thank the criminal element for the police having to "up their ante"...like back in 1997 - N. Hollywood.
After that, carrying an AR in the trunk of the cruiser became SOP.

Hell, I remember wheelguns on the hip and no body armor for the cops when I was a young'un.
Times HAVE changed indeed.

What can be truly scary though, is when LOCAL law-enforcemnt and their tactics and decisions become questioned and even supplanted with a FEDERAL "watchdog" agency, be it the NSA, or DHS.
Then, the totalitarians come out from under THEIR rocks, and we got 7 kinds of hell on our hands.

But that's just my take on it.

Good post.

You roll safe out there.
