Obama Is Turning the Local Police Against American Citizens

The United States has more than 18,000 police departments. far more than any other nation. Each of the 50 states has its own Peace Officer Standards and Training board and officer / deputy certification criteria for more than 700,000 officers nationwide. Over the next several decades it’s likely that a more federalized policing model will replace this decentralized approach.
“Critics have argued for years that decentralized police administration fosters inherently poor-quality policing, tolerates racial bias, and makes it especially difficult to monitor and verify training and certification requirements across states. For many critics, federal intervention remains the remedy of choice. The current administration in Washington appears to agree.”

Local cops really excited about their terrifying new tank

The police department in St. Cloud, Minnesota is excited to have a new means of transportation: a menacing, jet-black tank.
The tank will be the official method of transportation for the department’s SWAT team, which was accustomed to driving an old ambulance on “high-risk” missions, according to the St. Cloud Times.
But thanks to Minnesota’s Homeland Security office, the city was able to upgrade to a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle, or MRAP. The tank is worth $400,000, but St. Cloud only paid a $3,000 transportation fee.
“We got to acquire a very expensive piece of equipment that has everything to do with our ability to do our job in a safe effective way,” said St. Cloud Police Lt. Jeff Oxton in reference to the armored car, which is designed for battlefield combat operations.

If you live in Atlanta, Denver, Minneapolis or New York City, you have the wisdom, or perceived wisdom, of “law enforcement global partners” working in your city to “address violent extremism.” The announcement by U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch came with the launch at the United Nations in New York City on September 29, 2015 … the United Nations, “a sharia-compliant world body …” There are 193 member nations in the United Nations. Of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation’s (OIC) 57 states, 56 are member states of the UN. Have you wondered what happened to Syria’s seat in the U.N.? Well, of course, that peace-loving body yanked it and then handed it over to the ‘freedom fighters/rebels.’ In October 2013, the United Nations issued a statement advocating for “greater ties with the Organization of Islamic Cooperation to resolve conflict in the Middle East ….” So how’s that working out for the “global partners?” And before I get to the Department of Justice announcement on the Strong Cities Network, I have to show you this from the U.N.policies are being applied in the United States, through local initiatives and now we’re going to see a global police force.
