During an FBI graduation ceremony President Trump stated:


Just as I promised, we are allowing our local police to access surplus military equipment. Something the previous administration, for some reason, refused to do. Explain that one. Explain it to me please.


Applause from the audience briefly interrupted the president as he spoke. The restrictions were put into place by the Obama administration in 2015 as questions arose out of concerns regarding the hyper-militarization of local police.

Anyone that's taken a good look at modern American society shouldn't have a problem with it.

From Ferguson to protesting private citizens running to become president to protesting 'white supremacists'.

To everday city life in urban utopias like Chicago.

If people think the cops should be dressing like Barney Fife.

They need to take their rose colored glasses off at take a good long hard look at 'Murica.

I don't know what's worse, Trump militarizing the police force, or him not understanding why it's a bad idea.

I mean sure, it's justifiable in some sense, but then the wonderful thing about ideas like militarizing the police and building walls along our border is that it just makes it easier to declare martial lock-down and treat everyone who isn't an outspoken supporter of the government as 'enemy combatants'.

Of course I could be wrong, it's not like governments throughout history have taken things too far before right?

Anyone who understands police unions and the terrible training, pay, rotation, aptitude, marksmanship, ohysical fitness, and iq caps should think twice about spending on equipment.

Most of you are clueless and glorify a situation you have no understanding of.

The citizens will be safer if the police have bigger guns, in other news Americans are losing weight by eating more food.

I see it like this.

It's a bigger problem when for the last 9 years the police have been declared the enemy.

Even to the point where they were getting gunned down in the streets.

They are a problem.

Terrible marksmanship. Fact

Over 70 percent out of shape..fact

Terrible tactical awareness training fact

Terrible threat assesment...fact

Terrible DE escalation skills check


Police are under siege by politics. They need help not more equipment. They need better pay, training, psychological support, rotation erc...not propaganda.

Sure I used work with police in hand to hand training, and my best friend and assistant wrestling coach is an officer, he also dislikes going out with fat lazy cops.

Read the stats. It's embarrassing.

Have you ever fired a police weighted trigger? Any idea why they are so heavy?

Who owns that? The Mayor and the so called elected officials that our pandering to the race baiters??? We have bad human beings that belong to EVERY CLUB! It's when people use it to give their team a political advantage, that our laws become useless and the people become more vulnerable!

Instead of blaming the police for getting off for their crimes did the idiots who claim the police are NAZI's ever think the reason the judges let them off is that the judges rely upon the police protecting them? Yea, too deep for some of you to comprehend.....
