National Bully of 2011 Nominee: Militarized Police Departments

Our first National Bully of 2011 nominee is the ever more militarized police forces around our nation.  Armed with an increasing array of battlefield weaponry including armored personnel carriers (APC) and the latest in “non-lethal” combat weapons, our nation’s police departments are looking like small armies.  Now even the smallest police departments have Special Tactical Units (STU) to make use of the military weaponry fawned off them by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security.

Due to this militarization of our police departments, we are seeing more and more news reports of deadly drug “raids” implementing these weapons and equipment.  In the case of the “Occupy” movement, we are seeing these weapons being turned on peaceful protestors.  Our police departments have turned from “protect and serve” to occupying armies.

Thus, it is with heavy heart that I make our militarized police departments the first National Bully of 2011 nominee.
