Nice article titled "Ten years after 9/11, Police Departments are Increasingly Militarized".
Actually connects the dots of Federal incentives for disbursements of military equipment to be used on the citizenry. Read the whole thang.
Special props for restating these factoids;
- Trend began 30 years ago.
- War on Drugs rationalization for militarization
- 9/11 put already established trend into hyperdrive
- All the above contribute to the continued erosion of constitutionally protected rights
