Close to 200 state and local police departments in the United States have been suspended for losing military-level equipment transferred to them by the Pentagon, a new investigation found.
According to the media outlet Fusion, its independent investigation into the Pentagon’s “1033 program,” which equips state and local police departments across the US with excess military equipment, turned up an alarming trend: Not only did many law enforcement agencies fail to comply with the program’s guidelines, they routinely lost dangerous weaponry.
Already, the investigation has found that police departments in Arizona, California, Mississippi, Missouri, Georgia, and others have lost or cannot account for various types of weapons. This list includes M14 and M16 assault rifles, .45-caliber pistols, shotguns, and even vehicles.
"they routinely lost dangerous weaponry"
that is very fucking alarming, who the hell are they being lost to? the same white supremacists bastards killing every one??
How much do you wanna bet they “lo$t them” to white supremacist friends and groups?
Why the fuck were they given them in the first place?
To profit the greedy white supremacist weapons manufacturers.
It’s proved time and again that cops can’t even be trusted with mace, tazer or a handgun, let alone anything more extreme.
Imagine if people’s hair color matched their eye color
/every person who has brown hair and brown eyes sighs deeply
red heads would in fact be satanic
Why aren’t we thinking about this the other way round. If your hair looked like your eyes that’d be neato
*brown eyed people sighs deeply again*
This is the most ridiculous thing I’ve come across in a long time.
I understand the daily hardships that so many people have in a world ruled by white males.
I understand that sometimes this can make it feel as if all white males are the enemy (especially for those who fight for equality).
But posts like this need to stop.
You are not advancing anybodies rights.
You are not promoting anybody’s equality.
This is not activism.
This is hate-mongering.
Thanks for the contribution :)
I’ve lost track, am I even allowed an opinion these days? Whatever. How about this radical idea: Let’s treat each other equally, and then we’ll all be equal? All this mindless mud-slinging achieves nothing and only serves to demonstrate how true objectives of those involved (notably NOT equality).
You guys are good at this! :)
This isn’t okay and you need to fuckin stop.
This is so beautiful it brings a tear to my eye.
Lmfao, that person is dense as fuck. Bless this post.
my favourite thing to do in the holidays is fuck up my sleeping pattern as much as possible
his life was totally in danger.
True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
Someone get me off this planet
The kids only got $30,000 for their settlement he got 8 thousand more
