We Sometimes Forget That We’re The President

The man really is like an innocent but clueless bystander within his own Administration. He should probably organize a protest against the man in charge or something. Maybe he’s good at that?

President Barack Obama said Monday he wants to ensure the U.S. isn’t building a “militarized culture” within police departments, while maintaining federal programs that provide the type of military-style equipment that were used to dispel racially charged protests in Ferguson, Missouri.

Don’t forget that Obama is the exact same guy whose DHS labeled returning American veterans as potential terrorists even as their returning weapons were sent to small town police departments to fight, um, terrorists, whose CIA blew up an American citizen on foreign soil without due process, and whose Bureau of Land Management showed up in full battle array ready to gun down a rancher and dozens of his supporters over a few stray cows.

Something tells me that Obama doesn’t have a problem, in theory, with militarizing law enforcement as long as his own special groups and interests aren’t the ones being made war upon.

    His DoD and DHS gave the equipment to these police departments. He is such a disingenuous jackass.

    the president is asking Congress for funding to buy 50,000 body cameras to record events like the shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old Michael Brown and look for ways to build trust and confidence between police and minority communities nationwide.

    Never mind that he wants the Federal Government to foot the bill for this…

    So he wants roughly 5% of the million+ LEOs in the US to have body cameras, and that is going to make sure this situation never happens again. Let’s say that happened already – What if Michael Brown decided to attack one of the 95% of officers without one of those body cameras? How the hell do these jackasses just pull random numbers like “50,000” out of their collective rectal cavities and expect it to mean anything? That wouldn’t even cover all of the officers in the state of New York.

    Yep. I often marvel at how he can be shocked and dismayed by the consequences of actions taken by his own government, coupled with his eagerness to solve the wrong problems when he’s finally sufficiently outraged by those government’s actions of his.
