2014 becoming 1984?

Posted: April 10, 2014 in Politics, Society

Tanks and other H-D war wagons and weapons going to local police departments, snipers set up around cattle ranch, IRS targeting non-Left (read that as anti-Obama ) organizations, NSA and other gov agencies buying up massive amounts of ammo, etc., etc…Here’s a great synopsis from Matthew Byrd in The Daily Iowan: “The effects of cops moving from handguns to assault rifles and being equipped with tanks, bazookas, and Kevlar has been twofold. First, civil liberties have absolutely been eroded, with police-brutality rates skyrocketing in last decade according to the Justice Department. Not only that, but, with the influx of military gear into local police forces, cops begin to view themselves as soldiers whose main job is combat rather than keeping the peace [itals. added].”
