The recent events in Ferguson, Missouri has once again raised the issue of militarizing our local law enforcement officers to a semi-military status.
Like everyone else I am concerned to see this sort of thing come about. I get concerned when I see unmarked government cars, and some with Homeland Security stickers on the door driving down our expressways.
Not long ago I saw an unmarked suv with a “Special Forces” sign on the front window visor. He had a computer mounted on the dash like a police officer would have, he took a photo of a nondescript community sign and drove off ,raising the visor so no one could see it.The back of his suv had tourist type stickers on it like a normal tourist would have.
I see a lot of such things that concern me. It makes me wonder what this country is coming to , and why the police and other law enforcement are gearing up they way they are.
I get concerned there may be a takeover of our country by an overextending government who is hell bent on destroying our liberties.
I think many well meaning Americans, like myself are becoming concerned. However, there are always two sides to a story.
