+ - Once you have a SWAT team the only thing to do is kick some ass. 1

Submitted by Nethead
Nethead (1563) writes "On Salon.com Alex Halperin talks with Radley Balko, the author of Rise of the Warrior Cop. They discuss [TFA] the rise of police SWAT teams, even in small towns. Balko show the political mechanisms behind why it is almost impossible to stem the tide of militarized police forces and the effects it is having on our communities. Though US centric, I'm sure that these same mechanisms play out worldwide."
