Following 9-11 the Federal government started a program of creating para-military police units in cities all across America, primarily in the form of "SWAT" units. Today, many small city police departments have heavily armed units that may need to be used once a decade. Unfortunately, the police seem to jump at any chance to play with their war toys. The result has been the creation of storm-trooper type police units in towns around America. Does anyone want to comment on this problem? My father and several uncles fought in WWII to keep storm-troopers out of America.
