The town of Ferguson, Missouri, has been flooded with heavily armed SWAT officers in the wake of the Aug. 9 killing of unarmed teen Michael Brown by a police officer. According to some reports, upwards of 70 officers decked out not just in riot gear, but in equipment suited for foreign battlefields, took to the streets Wednesday night in an attempt to disperse the largely peaceful demonstrations organized to protest Brown's death. If the nation needed a poster child for the militarization of its police forces, it just got one. "The general consensus here: if this is militarization, it's the ---------, least-trained, least professional military in the world, using weapons far beyond what they need, or what the military would use when doing crowd control," noted Kelsey Atherton on Storify in a collection of tweets titled "Veterans on Ferguson."

Bookmark that one, matsop. Next time you get the itch to post a GW thread, look it up on that site first to see what it says.

My guess is it'll say the opposite of what you think to be true.
