Dangerous, alienating, and sociopathic: the policy of arming police to the teeth with military-grade gear shows a fundamental misunderstanding of how crime is solved and what it means for a cop to walk the beat, former Captain Ray Lewis told RT....
....If you really believe any of this is making you safer, Lewis, who spent 24 years on the force, says you should think again. Endangering lives, alienating communities, turning minority neighborhoods into occupied territory and compromising the very ability for police to do their jobs; these are just a few of the reasons the former commissioner believes main street is being sold down the river for power-hungry cops and ruthless corporate interest.
I declare all the people on earth FREE and EQUAL. Earth is a safe place again.

Curious can someone explain to me how we have 'police industrial state' or a 'police state'.
When they can't even secure the sothern border, and play 'catch, and release', ship people elsewhere to make them someone else's problem.
I don't get it.
