    Crime rates are near all-time lows. I credit SWAT Teams and aggressive police policy. I don't see any problem with cops wearing camo. Besides, it will always be the anarchist protesters who get shot first.

    Man.

    If people are going to post OPED, I wish they'd at least give the courtesy of giving a quick summary before doing it.

    That why I can determine if I want to read someone elses opinion.

    That being said, the militarization of our police forces does bother me. The ends don't always justify the means, and I really question if SWAT teams are truly police or military units that operate against citizens.

    Probably not a popular opinion.

    The SWAT Teams take down gangs and the sophisticated heavily armed criminals that the beat cops just can't handle. I really love that the cops outgun the criminals. Tell me you want the gangs to rule like in Mexico?

    That has got to be the sorriest excuse for a complaint I've ever seen. The loon reported virually every bit of hearsay evidence he could find linked incidents that may or may not have been connected to the event in question and just in general tried to thow as much shit at the cops as he could in the grand hope that soemthing would stick.

    In short come back when you have evidence of actual wrong doing. By the way the protestors you mention have a long history of engaging in violent confrontation with the cops. Be they Italian, German Swiss or American.

    Some actual reporting might have had a point here, this op ed piece is just one guys personal opinion that happens to get to publish it.
