Continually Militarizing The Police

Chicago’s Daley Issues Combat Rifles to Beat Cops

"It is so transparent as to almost be a joke. “Chicago police officers will be armed with combat rifles to better rival the firepower of street gangs, police Superintendent Jody Weis has announced,” reports the Fort Mill Times. “Weis unveiled the plan to equip and train the department’s 13,500 officers with M4 carbines on Friday.” No word on what version of the M4 Jody Weis will hand out. The M4 is basically an M16. It comes in semi-automatic with a three-round burst and full auto. It is the preferred weapon of the U.S. Army Special Forces and Navy SEALs.
Is there a reason for cops to have such awesome firepower?
“The weapons of criminals are getting bigger and bigger,” averred Chicago mayor Richard Daley, so he gave a nod to issuing the M4s. Interesting because Daley is an avowed opponent of the Second Amendment. But only for the commoners. Cops get military weapons to go along with their black Star Wars storm trooper uniforms."


There was an "incident" that occurred Feb 28, 1997, that's germane to what's happening before our eyes today, as the government is fast converting the country into a fascist police state.

That was the day two heavily armed and armored dudes supposedly tried to rob a bank in Los Angeles and then got into a shootout with police. Now, the bank robbery part of that stage play was just a setup for what happened next, because those guys were obviously going nowhere and had prepared themselves to duke it out with the local cops. They had full body armor that was sufficient to stop everything that was shot at them which means at least type IIIa or even type III, capable of stopping rifle bullets. I remember seeing videos of these guys parading back and forth in the streets for an hour, blasting away with full auto weapons, expending thousands of rounds of armor piercing bullets, before they were brought down. You can see a bunch of videos here, and a remarkably prescient bank robbery shootout scene fom "Heat", a flick that came out two years earlier.

The point of that over the top exercise was rammed home again and again. The cops were outgunned and we were repeatedly told they even had to rush to a sporting goods store to get adequate firepower to combat this dire threat to law and order. Of course it was highly instructive Kabuki theater to enlighten the great unwashed that police need much more than just their puny .38 specials to serve and protect. With the possibility of so much mayhem occurring at a moments notice nothing short of the most advanced military gear would do in the future for former Officer Joe Friendly.
