I’m not sure why I’m surprised every time President Obama does something that defies all logic. You’d think we’d get used to it after this much time, but nooooo.
Now, in a “brilliant” (yes, that’s sarcasm) move, he decides to ban sending a wide range of military-style equipment to local police departments… because we want them to be LESS equipped to handle situations like Ferguson and Baltimore, right? WRONG!
But in his ultimate wisdom, he thinks that the police looking less militarized (or protected!) will make the public feel safer and less threatened by them. Uh… we’re sending the police into dangerous situations, why wouldn’t we want them to be protected from CRIMINALS? And why do we CARE if criminals are uncomfortable with police looking properly equipped to get them under control?
If Obama is going to soften up police readiness and fail to equip them for life-threatening situations… how exactly do we expect people to be willing to “protect and serve”?
Making local police departments less prepared is just giving criminals a green light to run amok with their evil intent. And the leader of our nation wants to do this, why? You can draw your own conclusions.
