Tell Congress: Pass the Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act

US Politics & Gov't  (tags: Stop the Militarizing Law Enforcement Ac, Section 1033, NDAA, war zone, police )

Section 1033 of a military spending bill passed in 1996 allows the Pentagon to give "surplus war material" to local police departments. As a direct result, we see situations like what we saw in Ferguson. Please sign Petition.

The problem made the weapons and they were made for the purpose to kill. That's what guns and other weapons are used for. Who ever they are sold or given to, the people that get them are going to kill someone else. And it is going to happen wherever man have guns, bombs or any weapon. sad

It is madness to give such arms to people who are not trained to deal with them - and who definitely don't seem to have the calmness and confidence needed by those who should operate such terrible weapons!

The events of the past few weeks in Ferguson, MO have illustrated clearly for the American public that, when you arm and armor the police like storm troopers, then they act exactly like storm troopers. #PoliceBrutality #PoliceState #Gestapo
