I think that people are just too dumb in America. Like everyone, both sides of the racist and 'profiling' victim divide.

As someone that lives in Saginaw, Michigan, sure, we got some bad shit going down (i've heard the phrase 'don't go over the bridge at night' countless times) but not enough to warrant that monstrosity of a police vehicle. (i'm open to opinions)

I'm just a wee bit late commenting on this... for once (once, first time ever) I'm going to have to disagree with you John (like you're going to read this lol) - not saying there is not racial inequality in treatment by police - and I'm certainly not a fan of the police (I have ptsd because of them - so not a fan) - the start of the story makes it sound like Michael Brown was simply innocently standing outside his apartment block and the police just shot him. them releasing video of him committing a crime minutes before he was shot IS relevant. "irrelevant" video of him committing a crime to "distract everyone with a video that has absolutely nothing to do with Micheal Brown's shooting" WHAT? he was committing a crime minutes before he was shot. was it a justifiable shooting? no. but it is relevant information - not "irrelevant", not a "distraction"

message to black people: maybe don't dress like thugs and gangsters and mispronounce every word and make up words that are incoherent and make you sound like you're fucked up on drugs and don't gather on street corners to presumably sell drugs and don't carry weapons and have some self respect and MAYBE the police will harass you less. Just a thought.

Why does Keene, New Hampshire have a military vehicle but Las Vegas, Nevada doesn't?

Michael Brown committing a strong arm robbery minutes prior to assaulting a cop and attempting to steal his gun has nothing to do with why he was killed? Are you fucking insane?

I know a Ferguson police officer and he said that many other cops were very upset with how the higer ups and execs handled the situation

To be fair, from what I've seen of the freemen movement in Keene, it might be nice to have one of those armored vehicles.

The only offense I see with the black community in Ferguson is the taste in fashion, I mean what the hell are you wearing boy. Get that cheap shit off your neck, get a freekin shirt and by the honor of odin, get a decent haircut, you look like you spend 3 days unshowered on Comic Con
Alex Carter
People get mad because black people are discriminated. They are arrested more often and then found not guilty. They say that they are only being arrested because they are black. No. The reason the number is higher is because blacks DO TEND TO AT LEAST GET CAUGHT PERFORMING CRIMINAL ACTION and the BLACKS ARE THE ONE FUELING THE STEREOTYPES. Say what you want but if you were a six year old and you always kept falling on a little patch of dirt where the grass didn't grow, you would probably be weary of that fucking bald patch in the yard. I'm not racist but numbers don't lie. I'm not saying blacks are more likely to do something illegal but I am definitely saying that they are at least more likely to get caught doing something illegal.

This is military surplus being given or sold to local police stations for discounted prices, sometimes for 2% of MSRP! The reason for wanting such large vehicles is because police usually want something thick and bullet resistant to use as cover. Police cars are not bullet proof. Just ignorant people who don't understand police militarization.
Robbie Norris
when we were kids, my brother and i played Cops and Robbers. when he played the cop though, he would command me to put my hands up... and not two seconds after i complyed, he'd open fire with his imaginary finger pistol.

my point is i had no idea how accurate my brother's ideas of being a Police Officer back then were compared to the real thing...

Tucker Bowen
1) so it's irrelevant that the guy who the police went after was in fact a criminal? yeah, that makes perfect sense
2) they probably didn't release the officer's name so he wouldn't be the target of civilian violence. i feel like all those violent mobs made that fairly obvious.
3) ever consider that the Ferguson police department was more concerned with qualification rather than diversity?

Just goes to show that Oliver doesn't care about anything but race that at the end he said "if they go an entire month without killing an unarmed black man" so... they can kill an unarmed white person and still get their stuff back?
Tyler Huber
Let's not trust cops with armored trucks, but let's trust high school dropouts with basic security training with armored trucks because they're delivering money. Private corporations like Dunbar Armored, Brinks Security, Loomis Armored, and Garda Armored trusts people with basic background checks to make sure they haven't committed a felony, with an armored truck that could drive through a building and withstand a hit from a rocket launcher. Armored Truck to transport money, no problems. Armored Truck to transport police and everyone looses their minds. Never mind the fact that several times the guards on the trucks have misused the vehicle, pushing through protesters at banks with a 3 ton vehicle. So armored trucks to defend Corporate America's money is completely fine, but armored vehicles to go in and kill active shooters at your child's school is a serious problem

Yes, I agree, local police departments should be demilitarized.

Germany don't need much police power because their citizens are (or were) predominantly white, aryan race with homogeneous values. America is only 60% white, and the majority of the whites have already been mixed with negroids at some point. And the other 40% non-whites are predominantly low-IQ black or latino thugs. If we don't fund the police well, we cannot control the niggers. I'm sorry but this is the truth. If you want to know what happens when the police loses control of subhuman races, go take a look at 1992 LA riots. Sadly that's the way this country is heading to thanks to the niggerloving liberals like this jew twat.

I live in MO and my best friend's cousin lives in South Africa. When asked where she lived, the citizens of SA responded, "Oh, Missouri is the Ferguson place right?" Glad we are known for that.
