The administration's action, first disclosed by USA TODAY, would restore "the full scope of a longstanding program for recycling surplus, lifesaving gear from the Department of Defense, along with restoring the full scope of grants used to purchase this type of equipment from other sources,'' according to a administration summary of the new program recently circulated to some law enforcement groups. "Assets that would otherwise be scrapped can be re-purposed to help state, local and tribal law enforcement better protect public safety and reduce crime."
I agree except the Right Wing part. Considering what we all have been seeing, its the alt left we gotta worry about.

Everybody against this, please elaborate a tad more why this is a bad idea?
Are you afraid it will be used on you?
A tactical Police team that uses some military equipment is not the same as our military.
I've been hit by multiple vehicles walking to work growing up, serious? naw., to include an LMTV. Yes, I literally don't fear a speeding car coming towards me.
