LRADs (Long Range Acoustic Devices), MRAPs (Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicles), Body Armor, M4-like Carbines and Tear-banned in combat- Gas; battlefield tested tech in the hands of your local police force. With no sympathies toward predatory opportunists intended clearly, as a component of public benefit (our body of laws), there is a place for the traditional police. However the policy of Federalizing local cops into Combat-ready squads has militarized the relationship into something akin to an occupying force.
When you disarm the public’s natural right to defend itself against an active threat or to act as a deterrent force against a would be assailant then it is inevitable that the now armless public becomes an easy target for nearly any predator. Government, historically, has always been in contest for top ranking on this list of predators.
The question that follows from all of this is: Who’s left to defend the defenseless against the lawlessness caused by the occupying force of a Police State?
