Anytime you say "usually," you're usually wrong. At any rate, that is a good argument about arming the police with military weapons. Some departments even have armored cars. I realize a lot of you are either policemen or want to be but is that what you want the police to be? Do you think the police should have light machine guns? My line of thinking is that once someone says the police are on the front lines of the war on crime, who exactly do you think is seen as the enemy?
Shoot low, sheriff. They're riding Shetlands!
Underneath the starry flag, civilize 'em with a Krag,
and return us to our own beloved homes!
