War gear 'flows' to Police Departments

The 9-foot-tall armored truck intended for an overseas battlefield, M-16 rifles, grenade launchers, silencers and more — are ending up in local police departments, often with little public notice.


During the Obama administration, according to Pentagon data, police departments have received 93,000 machine guns; nearly 200,000 ammunition magazines that carry 100 rounds each; thousands of pieces of camouflage and 44,000 night-vision equipment;  hundreds of silencers, hundreds of armored cars and 533 aircraft.  The police in 38 states have received silencers, which soldiers use to muffle gunfire during raids and sniper attacks.

In Florida, officers in SWAT gear and with guns drawn carried out raids on barbershops that mostly led only to charges of “barbering without a license.”

In the Indianapolis suburbs, officers said they needed a mine-resistant vehicle to protect against a possible attack by veterans returning from war. “You have a lot of people who are coming out of the military that have the ability and knowledge to build I.E.D.’s and to defeat law enforcement techniques,” Sgt. Dan Downing of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department told the local Fox affiliate, referring to improvised explosive devices, or homemade bombs.
