Outrage over stopping police from becoming a military force? Does this military equipment give better safety, or give law enforcement a better way to kill a crowd? The anxiety caused by seeing military dressed and armed people is reason enough to stop it. Wear a recognizable police/law enforcement uniform and people are much less likely to freak out. Maybe… just maybe… A return to true policing, as in protect and serve, might go a long way? Whenever a police force gets instructions to make any portion of the people they serve, into a ‘revenue generator, that order/instruction can be ignored. On both legal and moral grounds. Forget being upset that you lost your new toys, and start real policing.
