MSNBC asked this key question on March 4, 2011 in the story linked below:
That’s a damned good question as the vehicle demonstrated in the vehicle above is specified to resist a .50 caliber bullet and all other small arms fire that “average” civilians use inside the United States of America and overseas. So just why does the Department of Homeland Security feel that it is necessary to provide $300,000 grants to purchase these Light Armored Vehicles (LAV’s) for police dpeartments since the latter days of the Bush administration to provide what amounts to a civilian supplemental “Home Guard” to supplant the Federal Government’s new private un-Constitutional army. Especially since the number of successful organized terrorist attacks since 9/11/01 on American soil can be counted within ten fingers.
Thus begging the obvious question:
If the new American paramilitary is being created not to repel a massive invasion of Al Qaeda based terrorists unleashed on our homeland, then why are we militarizing our society to a point that surpasses the wildest dreams of former Iron Curtain leaders of the 1970′s?
Perhaps it is not to keep the masses protected but incarcerated; to hold their wealth and prevent it from leaving the country, to control their spending with strict illegal monitoring and currency manipulation, to tax without representation, and to modify behavior just like prison inmates are manipulated using controls beyond the scope of most inmates mental capacity. America is about to become a society built on the Stasi model, as Steven Kurlander unwittingly reported in his Huffington Post editorial titled “Domestic Surveillance: Spy vs. Spy, American vs. American.” In his piece from March 13, 2013 he observed:
We walk Main Streets and drive thoroughfares that are monitored by cameras and speed passes. We work at computer terminals that allow our bosses to monitor our behavior and work productivity, minute by minute-and we use social media and search engines that can track our usage and establish personality profiles to sell and share.
And we now also routinely spy on our families and one another too in our homes, businesses, and elsewhere, simply be clandestinely hiding spy cameras or affixing and monitoring GPS monitors to phones, computers, vehicles or possessions.
“It’s truly a case of spy vs. spy when parents keep tract of kids, neighbors can keep tabs on the goings on around their home and spouses can detect infidelity with a spy cam or GPS tracker,” says Dan Iacono, who owns DynaSpy Security, Inc., which sells an array of sophisticated spying equipment at two very busy stores in Long Island and Fort Lauderdale. He describes his business as “booming.”
Thus the idea of using fellow “inmates” to rat out troublemakers for rewards, to report to the “Party” for special dispensation is being established by training the youth of America to snitch on their parents and to “see something, say something” even though the observer has little if any formal training regarding the threat posed by a little old lady yelling at her dog versus an alleged terrorist carrying a backpack listening to his iPod. In April of 2011, I warned about the following:
