+ - Pentagon Supplied Ferguson Police with 'War Zone' Supplies->

Submitted by Anonymous Coward
An anonymous reader writes "The Pentagon has given the police department hundreds of millions of dollars' worth of surplus military equipment down the years, it has emerged.

The Ferguson Police Department is part of a federal programme known as 1033, which distributes military equipment such as armed vehicles and even grenade launchers to police forces across the US.

The force has been accused of using this equipment during the ongoing unrest in the town of Ferguson following the shooting of Michael Brown."
