"In an interview with Fox 59, a Morgan County, Indiana, Police Sergeant admits that the increasing militarization of domestic police departments is partly to deal with returning veterans who are now seen as a homegrown terror threat," Paul Joseph Watson writes at Infowars.
"In a chilling story entitled 'Armed for War: Pentagon Surplus Gives Local Police an Edge,' we learn how a Mine Resistant Vehicle (MRAP) which was once used during the occupation of Afghanistan will now be 'patrolling the streets of central Indiana,' according to the report," Watson continues.
Infowars then quotes Sgt. Dan Downing of the Morgan County Sheriff’s Department, who states, "When I first started we really didn’t have the violence that we see today. The weaponry is totally different now that it was in the beginning of my career, plus, you have a lot of people who are coming out of the military that have the ability and knowledge to build IEDs and to defeat law enforcement techniques."
