Do you really believe Ferguson is a problem because of militarizing the police? Although I worst-believe that military equipment should not be trickled down to the common folk of a war-mongering nation, the police have been militarized since I can remember–the only difference being their equipment changes with every war. The fact that war-mongers made money on producing too much equipment at this point is irrelevant. This is purely a racial issue. Nothing more. Indeed. It is so hard for a nation to look in the mirror, even as its law enforcement institutions murder young men in the streets. Rant on.
