    is to find a solution that ISN'T extended militarization of civilian public and private spaces.

    You appear to be setting up a bit of a straw argument when you imply that any one concerned with the issues of a National Guard militarization does not care about the people in the neighborhood.

    That seems to be falling right into both the NRA's and the militant right wing's frameworks that the only solution to excess violence is more violence.

    But maybe that's just me, i.e. a personal reading on your comments?
