Quote: "It was a massacre of bullets," said Alice Ann-Marie Kenney, manager of the office park, who cowered with her 14-year-old godson as stray bullets from several deputies' guns pierced cars and businesses around them.
Quote: Since 1990, the programs have led to the creation of dozens of police armies around the country outfitted with machine guns, sniper rifles, armored personnel carriers, helicopters and grenade launchers.
But while those civilian agencies are increasingly equipped like the military, they operate with just a fraction of the rules the military follows to keep weapons from falling into the wrong hands and to ensure their safe, proper use.
Quote: Some local agencies inflated crime rates to get military weapons. For example, the Panhandle town of Lynn Haven (pop. 12,451) reported a 900 percent rise in armed robberies, without telling regulators that the raw number of robberies rose from one to 10, then fell to one again just as quickly.

has no one noticed the cops in BDUs carrying MP5s in oakland.....
My response as well as those of my friends is to take a disposable camera, photograph the rise of military power and abuse....even if it's just a cop in military garb.... send the photos to them with a reminder that we are watching them as well.....
