Sherman Potter: Insatiable Jesus: Sherman Potter: This isn't a partisan issue, or even a gun issue. Google "police militarization" for a start. Then go find Radley Balko on HuffPo and read his stuff.Well, in a way it is. When the Right (if the Right) ever launches their version of OWS, they will bring guns, apparently. That would maybe mean the deployment of some of these new technologies. For leftists, the old tear gas and a baton still works.My point is, I'm not bringing this up because I'm some sort of wing-nut. I'm not. I absolutely believe that's the intended use of much of this technology.Just look at what they (the "authorities") have done at the last few R/D national conventions, or G-10 summits.These aren't weapons, they're instruments of control.
Sherman Potter: DrPainMD: Thank you, government, for wasting brazillions of taxpayer dollars on useless weapons to be used against imaginary threats. We have nukes... no foreign army is going to invade. We don't need ANY new weapons.You're missing the point. These aren't for "imaginary threats," they're for us./notice how they're all non-lethal and mostly for crowd control?
