Americans are rapidly becoming more aware of the extreme militarization of domestic law enforcement that has been steadily transpiring since the early 90’s.
Over the past few weeks, due to the events in Ferguson, many have gotten a glimpse into the massive militarization of the domestic law enforcement apparatus.
The images of the militarized police beamed across America were more reminiscent of the military operation on the battlefields of Afghanistan than those of a domestic law enforcement operation in a town of 25,000 people.
This has prompted citizens across the U.S. to question just what type of military hardware their own local police have been acquiring.
While there is a growing awareness that local law enforcement has been receiving massive amounts of surplus military hardware under the federal 1033 program, authorized by the National Defense Authorization Act, exactly what equipment local law enforcement agencies have been stockpiling has remained largely obscured from the public’s view.
Now anyone can look up this information on a database using information supplied by the military’s Defense Logistics Agency and Law Enforcement Support Office. All one has to do is type in their State and County jurisdiction and they are able to see exactly what their local law enforcement has received under the federal 1033 program.
It begs the question… who are the local police preparing to use these weapons of war against?
Select your state and your county to see exactly how militarized your town has become.
