I have lived in this State a long time. My parents and my grandparents and my great grandparents were born here. And most of the policemen and women in Indianapolis come from good, strong Indiana families with excellent values and level heads. This popular meme going around that all our cops view Hoosiers as criminals involved in social unrest needing to be arrested and controlled is just nonsense. These are fine young men and women in the force, most of whom graduated from Indiana universities and colleges, many of whom served in our military, who take vows to serve and protect our Indiana citizens. They are not “Iraqis”, East German “Stasi”, or federal government operatives out to crush our tea party and subdue returning war veterans. I just don’t know where all the conspiracy theories come from these days, but most of them are absolutely ridiculous. We have acquired a few surplus war vehicles to use here in Indiana. People who want to turn that into “the militarization of police” are not really connecting with reality. There are medications to control paranoia.
