Saturday Sounds

Below is a video from a small-town police department’s SWAT team.   It has more in common with the trappings of “morale” videos produced by military units/personnel, than it does what should be expected from your local peace officers.  And it gives a great insight into how these teams see themselves.

Exactly who are all these heavily militarized, Pentagon-subsidized groups planning to go to “war” against?  I think the Instapundit has a great suggestion:  ” A simple rule would be to provide that police can have only weapons that a civilian could lawfully possess, since they’re civilians themselves.”
