That'd be the national guard's job at that point.
I feel like if the police are going to be, say, raiding a Mexican drug cartel's operation... then they should probably have military grade equipment. If they're busting up a backyard BBQ gone wrong then they don't need anything more than a pistol and maybe some Kevlar. Oh, and a body cam.
How long does it take to activate and call in the National Guard?I am not suggesting that the police carry military weapons in every patrol car. Are you suggesting that the need for military weapons can always be anticipated?
Don’t throw rocks and bottles at cops and you won’t face the tear gas
How do you ignore people throwing explosives, hammers, rocks and other objects that can be deadly at these “protests”... come on now
@Conspiracy_Theorist Firstly, if it’s not okay for soldiers to use it on other soldiers, how is it okay for a police to use it on civilians? Secondly, usually these protests start off peaceful until the cops arrive. I mean the videos gave never shows what leads up to such an event or who the aggressors are.
um no, they are peaceful until the communists and BLM arrive... for example... here's a video showing BLM chanting and burning and looting buildings. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ajaqY2vd7fw&t=4s
every video shows the aggressors...
you're clearly blind...
Exactly just like in the North Hollywood shootout, they were outgunned.
They have mraps for busting into drugs houses and to protect themselves in riots. And the grenade launcher is open on the civilian market anyone without a felony can buy it. It is for shooting non lethal deterrents so it is safer for the civilian population.
They already have ways of breaking into drug houses. They already have riot control gear. They already have armor and shields. They don’t need a military vehicle or a grenade launcher anymore than a desk jockey needs an ak47 for his.
