Re: “Military Police

Someone tell me where the streets of our country have turned into open warfare zones ? If the police spent more time getting in touch with the people they are sworn to "serve and protect " and less time alienating themselves from these people who could help them stop the crime we wouldn't need these types of vehicles and the people who do need them would have them . Granted good old fasioned 'walking the beat " may not be as glamoruos as riding around wearing 40 pounds of body armour in an air-conditioned armoured personnel carrier may be but then you couldn't brag to your buddies back in the locker room about the kids you scared shiless either. The money spent on military equipment like this could be better suited to helping fix some of the inner cities problems like better schools for our kids that would eleviate some of the reasons that cause the crime to begin with if you educate the children not to do the crime then you actually create the solution to it. I am no banner waver here but come on when are we as citizens of these crime infested areas going to take a stand and start demanding what we are not getting ! The police have seen that these kinds of tactics time and time again only create more problems than they solve ,people have a mistrust of the police anyway just becasue of incidents in the past that have cost not only these very officers lives but also innocent people's lives who were in the wrong place at the wrong time . In order to stop the crime you have to get it at its source or your fighting what we have been fighting now for the last decade or so nothing ! Put the cops back on the beat double the patrols of foot cops, bike cops ,plain clothes cops,undercover sting cops , take out the crime at the top of the rung and the bottom will dry up . Stop feeding into the delerium that "Big Brother " is fighting the war cause wake up people he's not , if he was the flow of drugs from South America and places we can't even say would have stopped by now . All we have done is feed the federal machine and allowed it to grow into this overfed beaurucratic hog and now we are afraid to kill it for fear it will turn on use ,all the while it gets bigger and bigger and takes more of our freedom away from us and all we can do is stand idly by and watch what should have been stopped long ago continue to eat up our tax money and give us it's smelly by product.
