It's like Germany 1933 right before the Nazi's sunk their teeth into the society - we can either stand up and say no I'm not showing my papers every damn train stop or we can go along with it and say yes "Heil Obama".
Not today or ever am i doing that!

So this is what the average cop wears on patrol is it?
Stop with the ignorant fear mongering please, you're showing photos of cops in riot gear, it's meant to intimidate!
Shows your lack of knowledge of history.
There has no rounding up of political opponents.
There is no forced eugenic sterilization.
There has been no massive public book burnings throughout America.
There has been no Enabling Act making Obama dictator.
There has been no boycott of all Jewish-owned businesses.
And Germany announced they were leaving the league of Nations we have made no announcement to leave the UN.
People say America is like Nazi Germany when they clearly know nothing about the Nazis.
Black has always been a traditional color of police cars. Thus the term black and whites.
You obviously dont know police officers very well i suggest you go meet some have a drink. They arent some foreign army and have family and friends in there neighborhood. They would no more tolerate this crackdown you fear then you would.In fact most of the officers i know would be out front leading the charge to stop it officers tend to be very self reliant comes with the job. Trust me when i say if there was a plan to take over the first ones they would go after is the police. If you see them being rounded up then worry.edit on 10/20/13 by dragonridr because: (no reason given)

the uniform changes goes along with decreasing cost. Both the initial uniform expense along with the maintenance/cleaning.
Typical service blouse requires dry cleaning. The cover (hat) is much more expensive than a $30 ballcap. Trousers?
wearing those poly's all day, not comfy. I had to wear the same type in the usmc, the service dress green.
If I was given the option? cotton blend ripstop cargo all day, every day. Comfortable, much better range of motion, durable and easy to maintain and clean.

Just so that we're clear here, you're saying that the US is becoming fascist and the evidence of this is black police cars.
The standardisation couldn't possibly be due to multiple government departments bulk buying gear and uniforms in an effort to reduce costs could it? No of course not, that reasoning isn't filled with hate and fear.
