  •  Hmm. That's an interesting take on it. (0+ / 0-)

    I guess I agree with that.

    I say it "looked like fascism" because the truth is I have a strong anti-cop bias, since my brother was murdered by cops. I'd never serve on a jury in a case like this, because I'm aware of the bias.

    I'm well aware of what fascism means, and why this situation is different in all kinds of obvious ways.

    Nonetheless, when I see a press conference of armed cops in uniform acting with such beligerence and arrogance, it sets off my old hippie Vietnam War era resentments against The Man.

    Knowing about trends like the increasing militarization of the local police forces, the increasing corporate control over all aspects of American life, and the fascist trends of the Bush administration--that adds a serious backdrop of concern.
