A Militarized Police Force

Today President Trump gave yet another Executive Order, this one allows police departments to possess military grade equipment. I support those in law enforcement, I find this to be very disturbing, here’s why:

Whenever law enforcement receives military grade it inevitably ends up taking rights away from the people, it starts off with the small things then works its way up and is generally accepted because it is done under the guise of our safety and national security. However, what is really happening is we the people are being stripped of our Constitutional rights and what we are left with is a fascistic form of government.

As Benjamin Franklin once said, “Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.” So, the question we must ask ourselves is this: Do we want liberty or security?
