An officer aims his rifle during a protest in Ferguson, Mo. The protests have reignited concerns about the militarization of U. For some, dispatching American police to train in a foreign country battered by decades of war, terror attacks and strife highlights how dramatically U. In many places, the image of the friendly cop on the beat has been replaced by intimidating, fully armed military-style troops.
From Boston to Ferguson to Charlottesville: It takes a remarkable force to keep businesses closed and cars off the road, to keep playgrounds empty and porches unused across a densely populated place square miles in size.
This happened … not because armed officers went door-to-door, or imposed a curfew, or threatened martial law. Rather, the pressure was an internal one — expressed as concern, or helpfulness, or in some cases, fear — felt in thousands of individual homes.
More than 1, national guard troops were deployed while residents were ordered to stay inside their homes and put under a 10 pm curfew.
A similar encampment was set up a few blocks away. More details from journalist Ned Oliver: Downtown Charlottesville felt like the green zone of a war-torn city Saturday. Instead, it was a normal day on the mall except for the heavy security, a military helicopter constantly circling overhead, and hundreds of police officers milling around.
Make no mistake, this was a militarized exercise in intimidation, and it worked only too well. It is always a simple matter to drag people along whether it is a democracy, or a fascist dictatorship, or a parliament, or a communist dictatorship. Voice or no voice, the people can always be brought to the bidding of the leaders.
All you have to do is tell them they are being attacked, and denounce the pacifists for lack of patriotism and exposing the country to danger.
It works the same in every country. As the events in Charlottesville have made clear, it does indeed work the same in every country. What this reflects is a move away from a government bound by the rule of law to one that seeks total control through the imposition of its own self-serving laws on the populace.
This continual undermining of the rules that protect civil liberties will inevitably have far-reaching consequences on a populace that not only remains ignorant about their rights but is inclined to sacrifice their liberties for phantom promises of safety.
The powers-that-be want us acclimated to the sights and sounds of a city-wide lockdown with tanks in the streets, military encampments in cities, Blackhawk helicopters and armed drones patrolling overhead.
They want us to accept the fact that in the American police state, we are all potentially guilty, all potential criminals, all suspects waiting to be accused of a crime.
They want us to be meek and submissive. They want us to report on each other. They want us to be grateful to the standing armies for their so-called protection.
They want us to self-censor our speech, self-limit our movements, and police ourselves. Less-than-lethal weapons unleashed with deadly force. We are already under martial law, held at gunpoint by a standing army. Take a look at the pictures from Charlottesville, from Baltimore, from Ferguson and from Boston, and then try to persuade yourself that this is what freedom in America is supposed to look like.
A standing army—something that propelled the early colonists into revolution—strips the American people of any vestige of freedom.
It was for this reason that those who established America vested control of the military in a civilian government, with a civilian commander-in-chief. They did not want a military government, ruled by force.
Rather, they opted for a republic bound by the rule of law: Add these lockdowns onto the list of other troubling developments that have taken place over the past 30 years or more, and the picture grows even more troubling: Suddenly, the overall picture seems that much more sinister.
The lesson for the rest of us is this: Remember, a police state does not come about overnight. It starts small, perhaps with a revenue-generating red light camera at an intersection.parts of the criminal justice system, including bail setting, plea bargaining, sentencing, and parole release.
