One of the most disturbing trends in American policing in recent years has been the militarization of police weaponry and tactics.
In his new book, The Rise of the Warrior Cop, author Radley Balko traces the arc of American law enforcement from the constables of colonial times to present day SWAT teams and special response units. With the martial rhetoric surrounding the “war on drugs” and the “war on terrorism,” policymakers have signed off on a dangerously aggressive style of policing that too often leads to unnecessary deaths and injuries.
Is modern law enforcement on a collision course with our Bill of Rights?
Join us for wide-ranging discussion of paramilitary police tactics in America.
P.S. Okay to be fair, NTOA is not really a SWAT lobby, per-se, but current and retired SWAT member association/fraternity.
Gotta say though, as ANY gunnies would know, the 'NTOA-approved' "member tested & recommended" products, in my past experience, has been pretty good, so far.
