The decision by Obama to "demilitarize" police is a fraud. He requested that tracked vehicles, bayonets and 50 caliber machine guns be returned.
What remains? MRAPs, every type of small arm found in the arsenal, night vision devices, thermal imaging, phone jammers etc....
Don't be fooled. Local Law Enforcement is turning in vehicles that are as old as I am and getting the new "hotness" to replace them.
The protests. The gnashing of teeth. Its much ado about nothing.
