Do you Support The Militarization Of Police?

The Virginia Fraternal Order of Police is pushing to arm officers with military style equipment as a matter of officer safety. The fraternal order is asking Congress and President Obama to lift the ban of military equipment to local police departments.

What’s Your Take? Do you support the militarization of local police departments around the country?

No,Sending a heavily armed team of officers to perform “normal” police work can dangerously escalate situations that need never have involved violence.

The militarization of police is harming civil liberties, impacting children, and transforming neighborhoods into war zones.
