Reasonable force as required. With military equipment comes military enrollment and relevant training.

Depends on who manufacturers them. Let’s not support private arms dealers.

Yes, but not for uniformed police. We have special police units for this as well as, not to mention, the military

The police are becoming overpowering and threatening. When I was a child I wanted to be a police woman but now after thirty years of community work, I wonder if it is just those who like to dominate people instead of caring for people.

Yes, but only in extreme response and if they have strict training on how and when to use the equipment.

@8Z2VVNGGreen answered…12mos

It depends what the military grade equipment is and what its intended use is. I mean, military grade equipment could mean state of the art night vision goggles or it could mean an RPG..

The police and military should be separated. If needed, the police should call in the military.

Yes, but only high ranking cops should be able to use the equipment.
