mpd61, I think you are confusing "militarized" with "nationalized" or "federalized."

Military style uniforms, military grade equipment, and military assault tactics (IE most things SWAT), when increased in amount and rate of use, could very justifiably be described as "militarized."

The gear isn't the issue, though - it's the mindset that often seems to accompany it. "Hey, we've got this SWAT team..."
