How many "local police" departments have tanks and helicopters? Of course they have automatic weapons to defend against and combat the criminals who have them too.<quoted text>
That's pretty funny coming from the GOP, the party of "fascist law and order".
As in arming the local police with tanks, helicopters and automatic weapons. Appointing former prosecutors to vacated positions on the bench as the standard. How reassuring that in any conflict with the cops, the judge will always be sympathetic to their point of view.
These standards were commenced under Reagan under the catchall phrase of "the war against drugs". More like a police state apparatus to suppress the rights of everyone except the rich and powerful.
I suggest you get into your time machine and set it for 1934 Germany. You'll be right at home, Fritz.
There are several similarities between the current administration and the one in 1934 Germany.
