Cop or Soldier? Hard to Tell

Hosted by

"War Comes Home": That’s what the ACLU called its report this week about the increasing militarization of police forces in the United States. According to the ACLU, SWAT-style raids are on the rise, even though they’re often unnecessary, and sometimes turn peaceful situations into violent ones. And these ultra-armed teams are often subsidized with grants from the Department of Homeland Security.
