POLICE AND SHERIFF DEPARTMENTS EVERYWHERE IN THE US.: TAKE AWAY THEIR MILITARY FATIGUES AND MILITARY GEAR.

    1. Petition by

      T C

      Colorado Springs, United States

The USA is NOT a Police State, and Police Officers ARE NOT soliders. If they want to use Military gear and tactics against unarmed citizens they need to join the Military and go fight and die for our Federal Government's  Foreign Policy. Forclosures are NOT wars, Protests are NOT wars, Civil Unrest & Disobedience is NOT war. DEFUND and MAKE illegal the funding or gifting of these Military implements that are being provided to the State by Federal Agencies, in efforts to Militarize OUR PEACE OFFICERS. Sign this petition if you would like to see all Federal Government Subsides for Military Gear, Equipment, Training and Events revoked and made illegal under Federal Law.

      i had the "police" come to my house a couple weeks ago to serve a warrant as part of their quarterly "round-up", there were about 10 different agencies involved and none of them had uniforms stating who they work for. the 6 "officers" that came to my house never identidied themselves or the organisation they worked for. every one of them had bulletproof vest that were labeled sheriff dept but none of them work for that agency. i think they should all have to be identifiable while on duty and being paid from my tax dollars. there is no reason i can think of for them to wear camo fatigues or any battle attire.

      we in the u.s respect our military. seeing the police in the fatigues and having assault rifles give a lot of people the illusion that they are the military. The police are not trained like our military and they are in no way shape or form as brave.

      Every agency should be distinguisable... It is rediculous for you to give Police officers assault rifles and fatigues.. If they need to "blend in" call the people who are trained and paid to do it.. This is rediculous

      I thought that I would only see pictures of soldiers walking the streets of third world countries. What has the United States become?
