Police academy class slogan: Cause PTSD

"BOISE, Idaho - A state police academy leader has disavowed the slogan of the most recent graduating class urging one another to "go out and cause" post-traumatic stress disorder.

Each class at the Idaho Police Officer Standards and Training Academy is allowed to choose a slogan that is printed on its graduation programs, and the class of 43 graduates came up with "Don't suffer from PTSD, go out and cause it."

This is the level of intelligence we can expect from the fascist police-state.

It's changed, hasn't it? Police had always attracted some bad apples, came with the job. The switch to in-your-face militarized fascism really took off with the Bushistas' theft in 2000.

In actuality, the militarization of the police force has little to do with the supposed 'theft' in 2000, but rather with the ongoing "war on drugs", which has provided military-style training and equipment to an ever-widening range of law enforcement agencies. Incidentally, considering that there are many reasonable arguments one can make about the current administration, why do people like yourselves continue to repeat the rather dubious claim that the election was a "theft"?
