Historically in America, we have revered our civil servants: firemen, policemen, teachers, and numerous other professionals who keep our towns running.

Take policemen for example. In that Norman Rockwell version of America, the policeman was local, a part of our community. He was our neighbor, his kids were in Little League with ours, and he was in our Rotary meetings. There were human relationships there, a local sense of community pride and caring.

An alarming trend has been on the lips of hundreds of thousands of Americans. The trend was covered quite well in Radley Balko’s book, “Rise of the Warrior Cop”. The book documents the reversal of the “spirit” of the Posse Comitatus act of 1878. The Act restricted the powers of the Federal Government in using federal military personnel to enforce laws.

While the Act from 1878 does not legally cover DHS, a viral video in August shows a Marine Colonel at a Concord, NH town hall stating:
“What’s happening here is that we’re building a domestic military, because it’s unlawful and unconstitutional to use American troops on American soil,” he says in the video. “We’re building a domestic army, and we’re shrinking the military, because the government is afraid of its own citizens… We’re building an army over here, and I can’t believe that people aren’t seeing it. Is everybody blind?”

How did we get here?

Federal money has been pouring into local police forces all over the nation for years. The Pentagon started giving out riot gear as “freebies.” Local units accepted the Federal money. With that came, of course, riot gear training. The “1033 Program” gave out more than $500 million of military gear to U.S. police forces in 2011 alone.

More than 500 of BearCat’s, tank-like vehicles, have been sold by Lenco, its Massachusetts-based manufacturer by the end of 2011.

 

Training has involved Federal money paying for disparate counties and states to come together for exercises. These police units have been advised that they may be dispatched to other regions, or states, in the event of a large scale situation. During an event, the police may be from states away, with heightened vigilance due to being in a foreign environment.

When police have been trained to use riot gear, provided BearCat’s and tank-like vehicles, and taught to shoot with the “No Hesitation”targets, it’s no wonder news media has reported shocking stories of excessive force.

Law enforcement no hesitation targets

From pet dogs, to WWII vets with bean bag bullets, to the unarmed Connecticut woman that rammed barricades in Washington, D.C. two weeks ago, all were killed by police.

As writer Kristin Tate reported on Benswann.com on Friday, a mentally ill man, sitting in a chair in his driveway, shot by cops with four bullets to the stomach.

The question arises of cops being in a state of hyper-vigilance, due to the training and weapons provided.
