First came the police officer’s fatal shooting of an unarmed black teenager on the way back from the convenience store with a friend. Then came the protests and looting. Then came the astonishing police response, which by Wednesday night transformed the streets of Ferguson, Missouri, an inner suburb of St. Louis, into a scene out of Cairo, Kiev, or Tehran. Which has led appalled onlookers to ask: Who has been outfitting local police departments to look like battle-hardened military units?

You have.

Since the Sept. 11 attacks, the American taxpayer has been providing the funding for an eye-popping influx of money from the Department of Homeland Security to state and local law enforcement agencies. The funding is all in the name of preventing “terrorism,” but funds are fungible, and so are heavily-armored vehicles and high-powered weaponry.

  1. Instead of a knee-jerk reaction by those wishing to incite a race war, why don't we try to understand the root causes of the militarization of the police in the US, i.e. violence towards US citizens, the brutalization of the American psyche, and what appears to be preparations being made for war to be waged against Americans? We need to understand how 9/11 created this mass psychology.

    That in the wake of 9/11 (inside job), the PATRIOT Act US police state, Israeli security companies have played a predominant role in the training of us police forces. Police who now treat ordinary Americans as if they were Palestinians in the occupied territories, neighbors who now are being treated as enemies.
