I don't think they should have riot vehicles, either. I don't like the idea of militarizing the police.

The militarization of the police, to include gear and tactics, has been an important factor in abuse. I spent over 20 years in the military and we certainly weren't trained to deescalate anything.

I’m okay with not militarizing the police. We have hundreds of videos of what happens after years of conditioning them to see civilians as the enemy.

Nothing but nonsense in this thread, police militarization and the general attitudes of law enforcement engaging the public primarily as a bunch of suspects so find a crime is the issue.

You don't think cops deserve to be protected?

It's just another one of those dumb ass Liberal catch phrases like, "crumbling infrastructure".

Police militarization is just as real as "crumbling infrastructure," both with plenty of attributes to make them factual statements.

If your goal is just to troll the forums posting nonsense you are well on your way to an award.

Just the fact that they see us as civilians, when they are civilians, is a big part of the problem.

It took me 4 seconds to put “Police militarization wiki” into a google search. Or of course you could just go straight to wiki and do it there.

Something tells me you won’t do that, though.
