#occupy - The Obvious FACT: Militarization of police not a “Conspiracy Theory”.
Since when do cops need MRAPs since criminals aren’t likely to use IEDs in America’s street?
This is America, NOT Iraq or Afghanistan.WASHINGTON, DC – The United States Government is now equipping police departments across the country with 13,000 high-powered, mine-resistant military units, according to a newly released video report by Blomberg (below).
These Mine Resistant Ambush-Protected (MRAP) units were used in the Iraq and Afghanistan wars.
Each MRAP weighs over 20 tons and is designed to protect against improvised explosive devices.
This is in addition to the 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition and 2,700 armored vehicles that Homeland Security is now equipped to use on American streets.
The move to beef up police departments with 13,000 MRAPs has left many wondering: what are police preparing for?
We’ve all seen images here and there of a single department getting a new “rescue” vehicle. But 13,000 now across the country?

thinksquad:Did you know that there was a successful peaceful revolution in Iceland? It’s true. But you wouldn’t know from watching TV.
In 2008, the people of Iceland forced their prime minister and his whole government to resign. Next, they nationalized the banks & opted not to pay back the fake debt created by foreign bankers. Next, they created a public assembly to rewrite their constitution. And all of this in a peaceful way.
The people of Iceland have proven to the world that there is a way to dismantle the system while preserving peace & democracy.
Mary Jones takes pride in the neatly tucked corners of her bed and the spotless countertops of her kitchen in the small efficiency apartment she calls home in northern New Jersey. A little sign next to the front door reminds her: “Success starts with a single step!”
Born partially blind and with cerebral palsy, Jones savors the independence of living on her own with just weekly visits from an aide. So when she was offered work at a local Goodwill charity store in the fall of 2012, Jones said, she looked forward to the independence of a job. But the reality was much different.
“They had me downstairs in their store, trying to hang clothes up on the hangers,” Jones said. “And to make a dollar, I had to hang a hundred pieces. If I was lucky, I made 50 cents. It was a penny per item of clothing. I felt worthless. I just didn’t want to go. They made me feel bad because I couldn’t work fast enough.” Jones is not using her real name out of a fear of retribution.
