Fucking wonderful

WASHINGTON — The Trump administration is preparing to lift a controversial ban on the transfer of some surplus military equipment to police departments whose battlefield-style response to rioting in a St. Louis suburb three years ago prompted a halt to the program.

The new plan, outlined in documents obtained by USA TODAY, would roll back an Obama administration executive order that blocked armored vehicles, large-caliber weapons, ammunition and other heavy equipment from being re-purposed from foreign battlefields to America’s streets.

You can probably tell what I think about militarized police forces by my title, huh?

    I for one would like to thank the trump administration for dispersing all of this military equipment out in the hinterlands where we’ll need it for the upcoming civil war.

    what? did you think antifa would be able to figure out how to drive an M113?

      Depends. Does it have a manual transmission?

    Oh now come on!!
    Without military weaponry how will cops defend themselves against small dogs and disabled people? Surely a bazooka is essential!

    It will be placed around and in population centers for martial law. Coming to a country near you…

    What?
    Are you still thinking your local cops are going to be on your side against Antifa types?
    Local LEOs will be “federalized” to make sure you bunch of old racist guys, with your 2nd Amendment obsession, understand you lost once, already.

      local LEO’s where we are..are not a problem. besides being outnumbered, many of them are sympathetic.even in “slave” states..like, for instance, CT. the governor there had standing orders if he should lose his election, the state police should begin enforcing the gun ban that had been largely ignored (95%+ noncompliance rate).

      the head of the state police said they would do no such thing..they’d get a few raids in, and it would be a bloodbath after that. they’d be outnumbered from day 1, fighting a snipers war from all sides they have neither the equipment of the skill to be involved in.

    This just means Freefor will know where to arm up.

    I’m with you. My hayseed hick mountain county got a 3 axle MRAP a few years back. My first thought was that they’re not going to be able to get that thing down many places in the county without sending someone in ahead of it cutting limbs and brush. Sure enough, that’s exactly what happened on one of the first calls they used it on.
    Long story short, they’re not going to be able to use it in half the places they might actually need to use it. But hey, it was ‘free’.

    Cops sure were a lot friendlier before they started wearing body armor. Same deal with heavy weapons.

    Reminds me of a conversation from long ago:

    Libtard: “Your guns aren’t any good against a tank.”

    Me: “Oh, I dunno. Sooner or later, the ones inside are gonna have to come out to take a shit. Cap ’em with two in the hat while they are taking care of business and, presto, now you have a tank too!”

    Libtard: Mentally performs the equivalent of divide by zero and head explodes from register overflow …

    Things just get better by the minute.

    Muzzleblast – funny how certain burning substances can turn a tank into an oven….

  11. Sanders says:

    Not a fan of this idea, either.

    I drove past the Sheriff’s station in Espanola, NM a while back, and they had an MRAP parked out front with flat tires. I guess it looked cool, but they obviously could not afford to even keep the tires aired up.

  12. Westcoaster says:

    IMO this is a big Trump fuckup. But then, he’s in favor of ruffing up prisoners, so go figure. I guess that’s balanced by his pardon of Arepiehole.
