Obama to Ban Some Military Equipment from Police So They Won’t ‘Alienate and Intimidate’

“You know, we’ve seen how militarized gear can sometimes give people a feeling like there’s an occupying force as opposed to a force that’s part of the community that’s protecting them and serving them. It can alienate and intimidate local residents and send the wrong message,” Obama said.

    Hell, why not just take away their guns?
    They do it in England, and they have a much lower rate of police shootings, so if we take the cops guns away, there will be less police violence!
    That’s about how that idiot thinks, when he actually thinks.

      Body armour is pretty intimidating too.

      Only the Peoples Militia are trustworthy enough to bear arms on the domestic scene, no one else in other law enforcement depts should be armed until they have been properly reeducated.
      Emperor Barry seems to be dawdling over getting his crown jewel off the back burner and front and centre. You would think his crony capitalist friends would have acquired sufficient acreage in Detroit or Chicago by now for a near term government purchase.
      The national headquarters and training facility for the Peoples Militia should be good for a few billion in the pockets of the deserving.

      Don’t forget that all that military equipment is needed for all the various federal departments and agencies. Even the Department of Education has a need for it from what I understand.

    President Obama wants to disarm the police, in order to make things easier for criminal gangs. We must remember that criminal gangs (and the money they give to the Democratic Party) are part of Obama’s core constituency.

    What he means is, “Stop shooting my sons. The military equipment is supposed to be used against the white devils.”

  • Hard Little Machine

    He removed the following

    Armed aircraft
    Tracked vehicles (eg actual tanks)
    Grenade launchers
    Military explosives

    You really want your donut munching cops to have that stuff? Really?

    So now that he has “his people” riled up, he wants to make it harder to bring them under control. Gee, who would’ve thought obummer realised his militarising of the police could be used against his uprising.

  • When black young men quit killing other black young men, black communities will be much better off.

    This is not a white police problem.

    just remember…

    Criminals infiltrate ALL areas of life
    ….shsh…. they even infiltrate Left wing groups to skew the moral compass

    No one can tell WHO the enemy really is…
    ….very few of them wear a uniform

    How many charities have taken dirty money?
    How many elites pretend they do not see dirty deals that their friends make
    How many nice middle class Mums entertain the children of organized criminals
    How many computer programmers are part of organized crime
    How many NICE people are YOU friends with?
    YOU CAN NOT TELL WHO IS PART OF ORGANIZED CRIME

    Blind belief in authority = not safe
    Complete disbelief in authority = not safe

    The Left has run all sorts of institutions into the ground so that the people have NO belief in them

    IT IS NOT CHALLENGING AUTHORITY IF YOU DON’T CHALLENGE THE OPPOSING VIEWS AS WELL!

    Being a Police Person is a pretty rotten job these days = THANKS TO THE LEFT
    (the Right have championed anti-authority views in order to get votes as well)

    NOT only do they have to deal with the ROTTEN CRIMINAL THREATENING THEM
    EVERY DAY!
    They have to deal with all the LEFT WING RIGHTS GROUPS WHO ARE ON THE SIDE OF THE CRIMINAL!!!!
    (oh let the bastards eat better in jail than the hard working man in the street who can barely afford to pay rent)

    A lot of these RIGHTS groups have NO BUSINESS BEING PAID FOR BY MY TAX DOLLARS THAT’S FOR SURE!

  • k

    I would like to see the CBC stop sending a constant stream of pablum to the CDN Public. Please & Thanks

    You get paid my tax dollars to GIVE ME WELL RESEARCHED SCOOP on what is REALLY going on…AND!!!!!… with a FAIR representation of ALL sides to the situation!

    And I am tired of LISTENING TO JOURNALISTS … you’ve got my tax dollars get some EXPERTS!

    YOU get MY TAX DOLLARS because you are NOT ON TV TO WIN A POPULARITY CONTEST you are there to report the FACTS…. let’s face it most TV stns don’t shell out the $$$$$$ for research if they can get away with it=which they do

    STOP PLAYING SOFT WITH THE CDN PUBLIC! WE NEED TO KNOW JUST HOW BAD CRIME IS IN THIS COUNTRY! I think CDNS can take it. I see a lot of scary rides at Wonderland & lots of scary movies so I think many CDNS would be TRILLED to hear just how bad it is.

  • Pelt rubbish at him and see how he likes it.

    Obama’s voter block weren’t hand-picked for their good looks.
