Price of Liberty

A display of the nature of the American geopolitical machine. This blog is a collection of posts and news articles predominantly focusing on the West's setting sun.

Concord, NH is poised to accept $258,000 in federal funding to buy an armored vehicle that police say would provide protection for officers and civilians alike during a terrorist attack, riot or shooting incident.

But some - notably the New Hampshire Civil Liberties Union - are questioning the increasing use of what they call “militarized” equipment by civilian police forces.

Concord’s City Council will hold a public hearing on Aug. 12 about the proposed purchase of a BearCat G3 rescue vehicle, paid for entirely by a grant from the Department of Homeland Security.
In its grant application to DHS, the police department said New Hampshire’s experience with terrorism “slants primarily towards the domestic type,” and said “the threat is real and here.”

"Groups such as the Sovereign Citizens, Free Staters and Occupy New Hampshire are active and present daily challenges," the application stated. In addition to organized groups, it cited "several homegrown clusters that are anti-government and pose problems for law enforcement agencies."

Chaffee called that language “alarming.”

It amazes me how taxpayers whine and moan whenever some poor person uses their welfare check to buy a lousy $5 pack of smokes, but fail to recognize things like this Bearcat nonsense for what it really is: a welfare program for defense contractors.

    A grant from DHS means that we’re all paying for it, including the protesters that it will be used against.
