You see almost no over weight fbi agents for instance in the field in comparison.
Readiness in local policing and training from conflict resolution to even fire arms training is incredibly inaccurate. Most officers in the US are
out of shape by the fbi statistics.
These are terrible things to do for officers in the field dealing with crisis. So bad things happen.
People like Jeff sessions say they are for cops but where is the training, mental health support, better rotations, and better pay? They don't need
tanks and AR's. They can't even shoot what they currently have hence crazy weighted triggers on the side arms.
Personally I want police to have all the things I mentioned not more toys and lip service.
