    what the results would have been if police had been armed with military weapons during the Civil Rights movement in the 1960s.

    The bloodshed would have made the battle of Antietam look like a knife fight between rival gangs. Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. never would have lived until 1968. He would have been killed during the 1st event.

    The same thing would have happened during all of the anti war protests. All of the protesters would have been slaughtered in the streets.
