  •  Militarizing law enforcement is wrong! (0+ / 0-)

    Militarizing law enforcement leads them to think they are at war and MUST KILL!!! ... They prove this every time they kill an unarmed person!!!!!!! ………….

    America is NOT a war zone, but law enforcement is treating it like it is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Government & law enforcement are out of control, and militarizing law enforcement just makes it easier for them to kill by using weapons and deadly force they have obviously not been properly trained to use!!!!! ...................

    When you militarize law enforcement and then do not hold them accountable when they take the life of even one unarmed person you do an injustice to this country and every American!!!!!!! .....................

    The most recent example is the cop that shot Michael Brown. This cop MUST be charged with MURDER, NOTHING LESS BECAUSE MICHAEL BROWN WAS UNARMED!!!!!! .............................

    IT IS TIME THAT LAW ENFORCEMENT IS HELD ACCOUNTABLE EVERY TIME AN UNARMED PERSON DIES AT THEIR HANDS!!!!! .........................................  

    MURDER IS THE ONLY CHARGE THAT SHOULD APPLY TO FORCE THEM TO THINK BEFORE THEY SHOOT AND TO ONLY SHOOT WHEN THEIR LIFE IS BEING THREATENED WITH DEADLY FORCE, WHICH WOULD BE A KNIFE POINTED DIRECTLY AT THEM IN A THREATENING MANNER AT 4 FEET OR LESS OR A GUN POINTED AT THEM!!!!! .......................................

    FAR TO MANY UNARMED AMERICANS HAVE ALREADY DIED AT THE HANDS OF LAW ENFORCEMENT! …………………………………………..

    A GOOD EXAMPLE IS THE DOUBLE AMPUTEE IN A WHEELCHAIR THAT WAS KILLED BY LAW ENFORCEMENT WHO HAD AS HIS "DEADLY WEAPON" A BALL POINT PEN!!!!!! .... AND THE COP WALKED FREE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ...........................

    THIS IS A DISGRACE AND A DREADFUL INJUSTICE TO ALL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE, BUT ESPECIALLY THE VICTIM AND HIS FAMILY!!!! ……………………………….

    WE MUST DEMAND THE REPEAL OF THE PATRIOT ACT AND CITIZENS UNITED AND THE RETURN OF ALL OF THE CONSTITUTIONALLY GUARANTEED RIGHTS THAT HAVE BEEN STOLEN FROM ALL OF THE AMERICAN PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!
