I am a civilian and pesonally dont have much of a problem with LE using just about anything that I have seen in SWAT the past 10 years. Obviously a few of the weapons have very limited uses in LE. For example I doubt any agency needs more than 1 .50 caliber rifle but if they can afford one than I think they should get it, it could be useful in stopping a vehicle or something like that or for bomb disposal. I can see a use although sometimes very small for law enforcement to have any small arms short of a Browning M2. As for explosives I would have to question the need for anything past flashbangs and door breaching charges. I also agree with those saying that if LE can have it we should be able to get it just as easily. But that is a politician problem and a failure to vote on our part not a police matter.
