    could halt the sales/transfer of military equipment to civilian police departments with a military or executive order. I'd rather the US military just burn or recycle their unused or excess equipment rather than have it end up for these nefarious purposes in civilian police departments.

    I am proud to be able to say that I got the chance to vote for Ann Richards for Governor of Texas, twice!

      There is such an obscene relationship between politicians and big weapons corporations....politicians enable them to become richer and richer and in turn they contribute to politicians....this won't stop until the politicians get some ethics.....don't hold your breath.
