Meanwhile, Jim Bennett emails with a “twofer” solution: “Have the feds take back all the armored vehicles they’ve given to police departments and send them to the Kurds.”

Even better idea:  Send these cops who seem to think all Americans are terrorists in waiting, and employ tactics as if they were, to Iraq to fight ISIL – let them find out what it’s like to face opponents their own size.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.

    Then, maybe the rest of the cops will go back to actually being cops – as opposed to acting like only-semi-restrained “shock troops” – and the rest of us can stop worrying that home-invasion crimes and/or armed assaults will commonly happen “under color of The Law”.
