I am still pretty proud that I took 50% of these pictures.

you know I think these guys would be helping the terrorist more than hurting them.Now a uniform was issued to show one standard one group one body united in purpose but with everybody dressed in thier own personal getup this is crap, and will only make it easier for a guy that wants to carry out a mass shooting attack.I should know cause I have a lot of urban patrol and operational experience hell it could even result in a blue on blue incident.I would want to know also why do police in the US so absorbed with trying to look like military instead of police.

What is this METRO SWAT? And Police dressed in Camo? Government Control?
April 20, 2013 at 8:40 pm
anybody else notice /the weapons they are carrying to defend us/, are the some ones that our government is trying to take away from us/ to keep us from defending ourselves?

All those evil guns..... kittens must have been dropping dead all over the city!

America = Police State.

It's really sad to see the negative comments about people who take low paying jobs to protect ungrateful people like the ones who are posting.
April 20, 2013 at 2:26 am
I didn't see a single backwards EOTech, so I'm good. Although I'm not sure how safe I would feel with all the beat cops packing UMPs.
April 20, 2013 at 2:30 am
Beat cops, especially in cities like LA, NY, Houston see more violence than any other division, and deal with it more than other division, and need the firepower more than any other division. Too often, and history and videos prove it, that they are constantly under armed against those who have more firepower. I've yet to hear of a beat cop having an AD or mistake using a long gun.

welcome to your police state.
April 19, 2013 at 4:09 pm
They are not the police any longer... they have become a military assault organization. Moving to a military police state faster than you can say "freedoms lost!"
April 19, 2013 at 4:02 pm
Funny thing is they are not the only ones that have some firepower.
April 19, 2013 at 2:34 pm
It's all a false sense of safety..Their not going to protected anyone..Their was bomb sniffing dogs and drills going on that day in the that same area...It didn't stop anything..and I forgot to mention the snipers on the roof that day too. so don't give me that hog wash!
April 19, 2013 at 2:14 pm
Its like in the dystopian scifi movies from the 80s where in the "not so distant future of the early 21. century" the country turned into a police state for some reason ;D.
April 19, 2013 at 1:35 pm
We all need to stfu. Those police men and swat team members have family, too. I'm sure they want to go home to their family after all is done. Being well equipt to do a job and gun control is a completely seperate matter. I'm a owner of many guns, and I do believe in my second. However, this is completely different situation. If you can't support the law enforcement who is out there at this very moment, just stfu.
April 19, 2013 at 8:12 am
the intent is to acclimate the public to seeing the police state in action. the people don't know the difference in the uniforms or jurisdiction. they can bring in foreign troops and no one would know. Sheriffs should know, but most of them are compromised by the DHS funding & grant money that "gave" them all the whoopie new toys, at your expense.
April 19, 2013 at 6:22 am
Thay spent alot of money on hardware them ump 45's are not cheep even the civi versions are about 3000.00$+ I see where all our tax is going to thay have better weapon systems then the military and thay don't want me to carry a hand gun with a 15 round mag to defend myself..... what's wrong with this picture?
April 19, 2013 at 6:20 am
Look at all those "safe" fingers!
April 19, 2013 at 5:24 am
So whatever happened to weapons of war not belonging on our streets?
April 19, 2013 at 4:29 am
Just seeing this should make people feel the need to have the means of protecting themselves and their families.I know they are their "right now"for the protection of the people.But what happens when that's not why their there? If seeing people dressed like that and those kinds of vehicles on the streets doesn't give you an uneasy feeling than there's something wrong and you've already had your fill of the Kool aid, eaten what the governments feeding you.....BRAINWASHED! LOL

Did Anyone Notice the Silencer on the One Assult Rifle? A Silencer!
April 19, 2013 at 4:10 am
looks like 25 reasons why law abiding citizens need to secure their families and themselves with automatic weapons should they feel so compelled including unlimited round capabilities.Who would be the only people concerned about law abiding free citizens exercising that inalienable right? CRIMINALS! with and without uniforms!
April 19, 2013 at 3:45 am
Me thinks those mags hold more than 7 rounds. I thought those were evil/illegal.
April 19, 2013 at 3:40 am
Anybody else remember a few years ago when the FBI admitted they "lost" a whole batch of weapons?
