Many are appalled to see police who appear to be combat troops treating protesters in Ferguson like some enemy we are fighting overseas. Obama has called for a separation of police and military after the Michael Brown incident. But he's the commander-in-chief of the military, so the police and military couldn't have combined without his approval. He had the FBI coordinate the brutal crackdown on Occupy Wall Street protesters--so you don't have to be black to experience a silencing of all-American dissent in a country which dreams that it is still free.

When did the police and military begin to merge, often receiving free military-grade weapons from the feds? Was it fear after 9/11 that allowed the blur of military and law enforcement? Actually, it began with democrat Bill Clinton's crime bill and has with every president.

DAILYKOS: So we have all these soldiers becoming cops. I've searched for stats and other info on this PROGRAM without much success. But I witnessed first hand the effect of this legislation. All though the 90s and early 2000s, I watched as police forces slowly transformed from a bunch of normal men and women, some with donut bellies, and far more looking like the PEOPLE they serve, to these Rambo looking people, with their military crew cuts, steroid builds, and, most importantly, a certain look in the eye that says, "I control you." (Bunny note: And if you read the whole article, you may be alarmed that these new former military cops have PTSD.)

Why? Because our own government sees its own PEOPLE as the enemy.

WTF? When did the coup d'etat happen and why wasn't I told about it?


In the wake of Ferguson, Obama is calling for a separation of police and military. Too bad this hypocrite wasn't calling for it when he was orchestrating the violence against Occupy Wall Street protesters with the FBI, Dept of Homeland Security with help from the big banks. No US president can bear to hear any criticism against the banks, who we start wars for and bail out while cutting social services. Obama and every president is just their puppet.

Naomi Wolf: "It was more sophisticated than we had imagined: new documents show that the violent crackdown on Occupy last fall – so mystifying at the time – was not just COORDINATED at the level of the FBI, the Department of Homeland SECURITY, and local police. The crackdown, which involved, as you may recall, violent arrests, group disruption, canister missiles to the skulls of protesters, PEOPLE held in handcuffs so tight they were injured, people held in bondage till they were forced to wet or soil themselves –was coordinated with the big banks themselves."

"FBI documents just obtained by the Partnership for Civil Justice Fund (PCJF) … reveal that from its inception, the FBI treated the Occupy movement as a potential criminal and terrorist threat … The PCJF has obtained heavily redacted documents showing that FBI offices and agents around the country were in high gear conducting surveillance against the movement even as early as August 2011, a month prior to the establishment of the OWS encampment in Zuccotti Park and other Occupy actions around the country."

Verheyden-Hilliard points out the close partnering of banks, the New York Stock Exchange and at least one local Federal Reserve with the FBI and DHS, and calls it "police-statism":

"This production [of documents], which we believe is just the tip of the iceberg, is a WINDOW into the nationwide scope of the FBI's surveillance, monitoring, and reporting on peaceful protestors organizing with the Occupy movement … These documents also show these federal agencies functioning as a de facto intelligence arm of Wall Street and Corporate America."

YOUR VOICE--USE IT OR LOSE....Whoops! There it goes!
