The police have riot gear. They have teargas and billy clubs and rubber bullets, weapons that are used against peaceful protesters. They have a surplus of guns with which to shoot unarmed black civilians. 

The police department should not be a militia. They should not have these weapons because as long as they do, they will be used against the people they are meant to protect. The police need to be demilitarized so that these weapons cannot be used against us and the police department can be kept in check.
