Always at war with Eastasia

And how is the usurper shredding the very fabric of society today, Fair 'n' Balanced Network?

Valuable vehicles and equipment are being yanked from law enforcement agencies across the country by the Obama administration in the wake of the president’s post-Ferguson order -- as sheriffs and lawmakers tell FoxNews.com the equipment is needed, and losing it could put officers and the communities they serve in danger.

“These things are useful tools and the president taking them away will put more officers in jeopardy and at risk of harm or even death. I don’t know how he can sleep at night knowing his actions will have those repercussions,” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala., told FoxNews.com.

And when was it the feckless Kenyan put his totalitarian plot into motion?

President Obama issued Executive Order 13688 in January after the 2014 riots in Ferguson, Mo., amid concerns about the “militarization” of the police fueling a heavy-handed response.

If only some commentator at Fox had warned us in mid-2014!

I want the police to be better armed than the bad guys, but what exactly does that mean today?

Apparently it means the Pentagon and Department of Homeland Security equip even the tiniest rural police departments with massive military vehicles, body armor and grenade launchers. The equipment is surplus from the long wars we fought in Iraq and Afghanistan.

To a hammer, everything resembles a nail. SWAT (Special Weapons and Tactics) teams were once used only in emergencies such as riots or robberies where hostages were taken. But today there are more than 50,000 "no-knock raids" a year.

Surely the soaring crime rates brought about by liberal disdain for cops should have warned us!

It's not because crime got worse. There is less crime today. Crime peaked around 1990 and is now at a 40-year low. But as politicians keep passing new criminal laws, police find new reasons to deploy their heavy equipment.

But that's just one Fox opinionator's opinion ... or is it?

The American police officer appears to have transformed into a soldier. This has become clear in recent years, from the tanks rolling through Boston after the Marathon bombing, to Oakland's violent response to the Occupy movement, to the rampant utilization of Special Weapons and Tactics (SWAT) teams on non-violent, low-level drug offenders.

This transformation is problematic and hinders true security. A militarized police force operates as if the community it serves is the enemy, breeding fear and mistrust of the police. This tension fuels chaotic interactions with the community and forceful responses from the police, making policing less effective and furthering the cycle of militarization.

Surely it's not the fault of the police!

Much of this militarization stems from troublesome federal policies. 

That's a relief. But hold those thoughts, Fair 'n' Balanced commentariat -- let's go back this evening's top story and the usurper's own justification for putting America's cops and communities in danger:

“We’ve seen how militarized gear can sometimes give people a feeling like there’s an occupying force, as opposed to a force that’s part of the community that’s protecting them and serving them. It can alienate and intimidate local residents, and send the wrong message. So we’re going to prohibit some equipment made for the battlefield that is not appropriate for local police departments,” Obama said in May when the report was released.

Would it be fair at this point to conclude that taking back the free tracked vehicles from random police departments in rural Alabama seemed like a pretty good idea at Fox, right up to the point at which the Kenyan agreed? Just think of the implications for climate science.

Not to put too fine a point on things, but there actually is other news going on in the world. It's worth wondering whether Turkey's shooting down of a Russian warplane would even still be on the Fox front page if there hadn't been a transparently bogus Obama angle for the hed.

For dessert: reader comments. You know you want to read them!

Todays positive news...Another 1 of Obamas sons is getting buried in a trash can.

Democrats, when you spit on police, when you attack them, and when your riot I doubt they are going to come to your rescue.

They are gunna be needing that stuff back in about an hour as the Liberal media has the Mcdonald vs Cop video plastered every where  

if obama is not removed from office kicking and screaming in the next 72 hours and you get a hold of your other elected officials and impeach them.. millions of your fellow Americans and maybe you are going to die...they have to get control of the people for the agenda and the way they see it there are toooooooo many of you.. it is going to be Biblical what he is going to do.

Obama doing anything to endanger officer's lives! This Clown is beyond belief!

Obama hates Cops & Veterans. Both groups have sworn lifetime oaths to the US Constitution

I didn't see a well coordinated attack in Europe lastt week either

Obama, doing everything he can to make us more vulnerable for the next terrorist attack. Liberals, going to be the one's crying the hardest when their families get shot up.

Police need to stay out of the black neighborhoods and let them protect for themselves.

All of you who are against the police, go take a night walk in a black neighborhood or one where gangs are. You'll be glad to see a well armed cop.

The Obama strategy has always been to disarm the law-abiding citizens, gut the US military and demonize law enforcement.  I still believe Obama is looking for a crisis in which to suspend the Constitution and declare himself Dictator for Life.

President of the United States of America is no place for a pool boy.

There is a race war fomenting in the Welfare Plantation , and the Universities.  Blacks had better hope the police have sufficient capability to save their butts, so why Obama is pulling this stunt now....well...who knows what is in his little brain?


Disarm the police....disarm Amerika...make people more dependent on aid....0bama's dream..

How come no sane person takes that dirtbag obama OUT !

obama rounding up things people could use to protect themselves and buying 2.6 billion rounds.. your head has gotta be buried deep not to see this coming..

We have passed the tipping point and now we are about to be engulfed by Leviathan.

Poisoned watermelons will be more effective than military equipment.
