The Rise of the Warrior Cop

We have police forces and the military forces as two separate groups for a reason:  their missions and the training for it (which builds the culture and mindset of the individual officers) are mutually incompatible:  the military forces have, as their goal, the subjugation of a civilian population and the military forces protecting them while the only goal of police forces is to protect the civilian population from aggression.

That is why the continued militarization of the police forces is something we should all be very, very concerned about.
