The Obama DHS Stocks Up on 2,700 Mine Resistant Armored Vehicles

This is fairly interesting, especially in context with the $2 million in new 'no hesitation' targets the Department of Homeland Security purchased for their agents to practice shooting at and the huge 1.6 billion rounds of ammo the DHS has stockpiled.

We have never had domestic law enforcement beefed up like this before, with what amounts to APCs, almost light tanks. Sure seems like they're preparing for something, doesn't it?

I wonder if a 'reichstag fire' incident that would necessitate 'emergency powers' and martial law is coming our way?

as much as the left wants to emulate britain in this country, you would think the first thing they do is refuse to allow the police to bear arms.

Jim Fisher, a former FBI agent and criminal law professor, compiled a database of police shootings and estimated that police in the United States in 2011 shot more than 1,100 people, killing 607. Mr. Fisher relied on the Internet to track the casualties, and the actual toll may be significantly higher. (Many police departments are very secretive about their shootings and succeed in withholding either numbers or key details from the public.) Mr. Fisher’s numbers do not include cases of off-duty police who shot acquaintances, such as the recent case of the veteran, married D.C. policeman convicted of murdering his girlfriend and leaving their 11-month-old baby to die in an overheated SUV to avoid paying child support.
