One Nation Under SWAT

Is this the world you want? If not, how do we disengage from this kind of world?

I borrowed the title of this post from a Naked Capitalism post by Yves Smith, which includes an exhaustive study of militarized police tactics and their evolution since the 60s by a fellow from the ACLU, Matthew Harwood. I suggest you read it all. It's nothing short of horrifying

I don't know how we fix this, though there is evidence in the article of increasing pushback. It's pushback we need, for sure. Write or call your congresspeople and get active locally.
