No, the Ferguson Police’s Weapons Did Not Come From the Pentagon – NationalJournal.com

The Ferguson Police Department acquired two soft-skinned Humvees, a generator, and a cargo trailer through the Pentagon program. The rest of the tactical gear either came from the National Guard or from the local police departments themselves, according to Pentagon officials.

 Mark Wright, a Pentagon spokesman, confirmed that most of the combat gear used by police in Ferguson did not come from the military transfer program.
 
This is a straight-faced weasel.  Where does the National Guard get its equipment from?  The military equipment fairy?

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.
