    More money to arm regular cops with machine guns, SWAT gear, rocket launchers, armored cars.

    more money to send them out on worthless marijuana warrants and to have them walk around Main Street looking scary.

    Propaganda TV shows and news reports that have these guys walking around the street, lots of military porn too, big rifles and planes.

    Scary talk about how "the enemy lurks within" and how a terrorist could be the (brown) guy delivering pizza or operating the convenience store.

    Less money to help kids get out of poverty and get an education. Less money for the education. Less money for police to reach out to the community and show they are on the citizens' side.  

    It is what it is: phasing in of a police state in the USA.

    •  you're just plain wrong re: 'more money' (0+ / 0-)

      to have cops "walk around Main Street looking scary."

      There have been dramatic, drastic cuts in Community Policing Programs under Bush -- see my comment and other comments above with links.
