'The military creed is to protect US citizens but police mentality believes WE are the enemy. `

Put the military on the streets then, see how long they remain your protector.

It;s weird that when the urban rot set in, people wanted this, now they`re turning into whining pussies for som imaginary `good old days`.

@jtrebowski: "was it really that much better in the past?" YES.

I will refer you to a previous reply to your similar assertion:

It could be debated whether cops back then were better or worse (or even "much much worse") than they are now, but the point being made was (as you yourself quoted) "Has anyone else seen how militarized local law enforcement has become?"

Do you seriously NOT see a major difference between this:


and this??

Consider that force mentality has drastically escalated since 9/11.
The military creed is to protect US citizens but police mentality believes WE are the enemy.
Fight at the polls. Demand that candidates uphold personal liberty.

You can always stop them with a 12-gauge shotgun blast to the face. Even if he's wearing a face shield, the impact will break his neck.

Just file that away. It might come in handy one day.
