Ct Patriot: I totally agree with Sen. Paul on this issue. It is quite worrisome the amount of militarization of our police forces. But in all honesty the Sen. and many others are asking a question I believe they know full well what the answer is. They know exactly why our police are being armed to fight a war. They know We The People are the real enemy of the state. So why is it like…Um duh, shucks we don’t know. Either they are afraid of what will happen to them if the tell us the truth. (Example JFK) Or they are in on it as well. So America, How does it feel to have a bullseye on your chest? Even better a bullseye your taxes paid for. Ironic huh?
Rand Paul Slams “Stupid” Militarization Of Police
“Try to explain to me when terrorists are going to attack North Dakota”
Senator Rand Paul, poised to announce a presidential campaign for 2016, blasted the ongoing militarization of police in America as “stupid” and “ridiculous”, saying Monday that using the threat of terrorism as a reason is a tired excuse.
Asked if the US should decrease the authority of the government expressed via law enforcement, Paul said “I think we could start out with no longer dispensing bayonets to police forces.”
“FEMA gave out 12,000 bayonets last year. That’s just stupid.” The Senator urged. “We are giving out mine-resistant ambush protection vehicles — 20-ton vehicles. Dundee, Michigan, a town of 3,000, has a 20-ton mine-resistant ambush protection vehicle. That’s ridiculous,” he added.
“We have no-knock raids, and a little baby had a concussion grenade thrown in her face at one in the morning without a knock near Atlanta about two months ago,” he said. “Sometimes it’s a mistake of police being too aggressive, but sometimes it’s putting police in an untenable position to enforce laws that really we should not be enforcing with that degree of force.”
“It’s supposed to be for terrorism, but try to explain to me when terrorists are going to attack Dundee, Michigan, or Fargo, North Dakota.” Paul added.
Shifting to the Eric Garner case, Paul reiterated comments he made last week, noting that politicians must also take some blame for the actions of police.
