Why is DHS heavily fortifying our local police with military equipment?

“If the United States is a police state, then the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) is its national police force, with all the brutality, ineptitude and corruption such a role implies. In fact, although the DHS’ governmental bureaucracy may at times appear to be inept and bungling, it is ruthlessly efficient when it comes to building what the Founders feared most—a standing army on American soil.”

“The third largest federal agency behind the Departments of Veterans Affairs and Defense, the DHS—with its 240,000 full-time workers, $61 billion budget and sub-agencies that include the Coast Guard, Customs and Border Protection, Secret Service, Transportation Security Administration (TSA) and the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA)—has been aptly dubbed a “runaway train.”

“Militarizing police and SWAT teams. The DHS routinely hands out six-figure grants to enable local municipalities to purchase military-style vehicles, as well as a veritable war chest of weaponry, ranging from tactical vests, bomb-disarming robots, assault weapons and combat uniforms.”

“This rise in military equipment purchases funded by the DHS has, according to analysts Andrew Becker and G.W. Schulz, “paralleled an apparent increase in local SWAT teams.” The end result? An explosive growth in the use of SWAT teams for otherwise routine police matters, an increased tendency on the part of police to shoot first and ask questions later, and an overall mindset within police forces that they are at war—and the citizenry are the enemy combatants….”

Something is awry in the United States and sadly I believe we will find out why we are having this military build up against it’s citizens. What happened to police and their ability to protect and serve? 

Images of sharply dressed policemen  patrolling the streets used to be the norm. Now, the “military” is patrolling our communities. Why? This is the million dollar question. 

Does the police force/DHS know something we don’t? The current administration in DC planning something? Martial law and forced quarantine for something like Ebola? A suspected coup? A citizen uprising against the government? Protection against Civil War? Regardless of the reason and speculation, something is going down and it will require billions of rounds of hollow point ammo and various heavy duty military equipment to enforce whatever they are planning to stand against with a mighty hand. Think about it! What does the federal government and local police fear this much and why are they putting this army into place, so quickly?

I can hear the critics now. Why are you and others attacking the police? This is not an attack on police. It’s a forewarning of a military style takeover of our
local police departments by DHS. I have talked with some within law
enforcement. Some admittedly say they don’t know why but they are definitely seeing a militarization of our local police departments and it worries them some too. This will set new rules of engagement and it may require them turning a weapon on it’s
citizenry, perhaps on family and friends as commanded by higher
powers.

I doubt most of our local police would ever turn military style weapons on citizens. They are great guys, but I know a few or enough that would and thus the concern. We appreciate their duty and service. I just wander if they understand their role inside a
standing army run by the federal government via DHS?

We will not remain a  free country if our local police become a militarized  standing army. We remain free when the people assert freedom and are willing to stand against foreign aggressors to protect our homeland, not the other way around. 

Below is a local, state and national breakdown of the fortification of our local police departments that are turning into “platoons” or “companies” within a National standing army called the Department of Homeland Security, or a national police force.

Bradley County: Each:

1-MRAP or similar combat vehicle
105-.45 Cal. Auto pistols
36-5.56 Automatic rifles
6-7.63 mm rifle
1- Utility truck
1- Utility truck

Just in case you were wandering

Hamilton County:

4- Night vision goggles
4-5.56 mm automatic rifles 
17- 7.62 mm rifles
2- Utility trucks

Bledsoe:

5- 5.56 mm automatic rifles

Polk:

4- 7.62 rifles

Rhea:

3- 5.56 rifles
2- 7.62 rifles

All of TN

168 pages of equipment delivered to include Tanks, assorted rifles, boats,motor cycles, generators, underwear, vests, grenade launchers, ammo, foose and ping pong tables, assorted utility vehicles, ambulances, medical equipment, radios, radar jammers, motor cycles, Combat boots, Kevlar helmets,.38, .40, .45 and .50 cal weapons, sniper rifles, MRAPS, etc. 

By glancing over the county by county supply lists it appears each county and state has a specific duty or function that will come together pretty much army battalions come together in war time. Each having their specific duty and specialty. Each having a specific “sector or district” to protect or annihilate.

All United States:

4,794 pages of assorted equipment delivered. Browse around, it will blow you away. (See link below)

I dont know what you are thinking at this point, but do you see a standing army being created by the Department of Homeland Security within the United States, presumably  to be used on none other than We the People, the citizens of the United States. Question? Have you ever heard of DHS fighting overseas? Of course not! This is for use within the United States.

A standing army outside our military is highly unconstitutional and needs an explanation.
 
Data below reflects State, County,Item Name, Quantity, UI,Value, Ship Date of Items shipped
to Bradley County TN police by DHS. Other Counties and states follow.

COMBAT/ASSAULT/TACTICAL WHEELED VEHICLES 1 Each $150,000.00  6/28/2007

With the stated price tag, I am assuming this is an MRAP or similar  light or heavy duty military vehicle. Why a “street sweeper” and “snipers” for a local, rural police department? Why port holes for rifles with the ability to kill large amounts of people?

Folks we must ask questions. Call your local police departments and ask them to explain the huge military build up. Any feedback to this site would be appreciated.
