    especially wrt all the military equipment in the hands of local police.  Most of it needs to be relinquished and/or destroyed.  
    As another commenter noted, when you give these idiots all of these "toys" then they're going to find a reason to use them.

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.
