Across America, Police Departments Are Quietly Preparing For War

by Zero Hedge | June 10, 2014

At first blush, the title of this post could be perceived as somewhat hyperbolic by those who still have an impression of America’s police departments as bastions of safety, designed “to protect and to serve” the population of the “land of the free.” However, said impression would be promptly washed away upon reading an article in today’s NYT which citing Pentagon data, reveals that under the Obama administration,“police departments have received tens of thousands of machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines; thousands of pieces of camouflage and night-vision equipment; and hundreds of silencers, armored cars and aircraft.”

I seen a cop in my town with a big black pouch swinging on his leg and I asked him what it was. He said it was for a gas mask and that the town was just spending those federal dollars.
