I dont understand why the police are using military vehicles ,tanks. and weapons in the free united states. Its getting like the middle east where you would expect this due to the wars out there.How does this look in the world view when they show this type of action against the american people. Law enforcement is going too far.This type of action is eventually backfire and law makers who make the laws will have political pressure from the citizens who see this and laws will eventually be put in place to change this method of policing.Where is free america heading.

If deadly force is used deadly force should be taken against but just some bums running around on the streets acting like nit wits and the police come back with tanks, guns on top of vehicles, and military type actions only escalates the situation.Some nit wits running many police departments are going too far arming some of these departments b eyond what is needed. Very unprofessional.I heard they were arresting reporters in St Louis.

We live in a police state now. Get used to it because it's only going to get worse. Politicians are in a never ending competition to pass new laws just to justify their jobs, instead of concentrating on the root of the problem. As long as that continues, our civil liberties are going to become a thing of the past. They can tell us to wear a seat belt, which is no damn business of theirs. They did that for the insurance industry. Government is on a never ending mission to "protect us from ourselves". It won't end well.

You don't understand? Have you not noticed the continuous erosion of our rights and civil liberties? Have you not seen many recent new stories regarding police killing unarmed citizens? Do you not recognize how enforcement of law has been replaced with revenue generation because politicians have ruined the economy? Do you live under a stone?

Pressure from citizens on politicians is a joke. They fear nothing. They respect no one. They have all our money, taken our rights, and have the police to back them up. We let it happen.

It actually started after the two hank robbers had more firepower than the police then after 911 the paranoia went up then when some of the departments started hiring vets from the gulf war and add The spinless politicians who make the laws to control the dumb population and you get some police departments who have more control on what they want to do and make as much money they want all in the name of homeland security.........s

Have all you people lost your minds. The blacks have killed many cops and neighborhoods in LA and big cities are like war zones. Utica should know first hand how bad things have gotton here alone. Don't comment if you have not spent time in a black neighborhood. They are animals. Theres ak47's shot off in little utica last week and you morons ask this.

Yes, most big cities are overrun with black & Mexican gangs who have taken over entire neighborhoods. These animals should be mowed down & the streets given back to the civilized. These coons & burrito chomping scumbags belong in the morgue.

The only reason racism exists is because of blacks behavior. Nothing to do with skin color.

Look at how they are destroying Ferguson. Looting, stealing, destroying.

I guess you shouldn't steal an attack police if you want to live.

Soo many of police officers are former vets from the battle front, they suffer from PTSD and the VA threw them under the bus as far as treatment TOO MANY ARE NOW POLICE OFFICERS now and really should not be cops

The Armadillo can clean up the city and UPD won't have to worry about STD's from the rats.
