Militarization: Legacy of 911? Or Occupy Wall Street

Mon, 08/18/2014 - 4:35pm

The fact is, the militarization of our local police forces started a long time ago.

First, it was the 1994 crime bill where we were going to put "100,000 cops on the streets." Remember that one? And where were these 100,000 cops going to come from?

From the 1994 Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act, otherwise known as the Clinton crime bill.

   (c) TROOPS-TO-COPS PROGRAMS-

        `(1) IN GENERAL- Grants made under subsection (a) may be used to hire former members of the Armed Forces to serve as career law enforcement officers for deployment in community-oriented policing, particularly in communities that are adversely affected by a recent military base closing.

        `(2) DEFINITION- In this subsection, `former member of the Armed Forces' means a member of the Armed Forces of the United States who is involuntarily separated from the Armed Forces within the meaning of section 1141 of title 10, United States Code.

This essentially funded the reassignment of soldiers, many of whom having just returned from the 1st Iraq war and suffering from Posttraumatic stress disorder (PTSD), to police the streets of the US.

That crime bill was Clinton's first big legislative push after the failed stimulus bill. It not only had this Troops-to-Cops provision, but, in some respects it was also the precursor to the Patriot Act, but that's a subject for another day.

So we have all these soldiers becoming cops. I've searched for stats and other info on this program without much success. But I witnessed first hand the effect of this legislation. All though the 90s and early 2000s, I watched as police forces slowly transformed from a bunch of normal men and women, some with donut bellies, and far more looking like the people they serve, to these Rambo looking people, with their military crew cuts, steroid builds, and, most importantly, a certain look in the eye that says, "I control you."

WTF? When did the coup d'etat happen and why wasn't I told about it?

Then, in 1997, Clinton signed another bill creating the 1033 program. It was the The National Defense Authorization Act of Fiscal Year 1997 (FY 97)

This was originally sold to the public as a measure in the war on drugs (Read: war on blacks and other minorities), and maybe that was it's original intent. You certainly didn't see local sheriff's departments buying armed personnel carriers and sound cannons.

But the program has boomed in the last few years, with a clear focus on crowd control. This strongly suggests that the so-called "militarization" of our police is not the legacy of 9/11 so much as the legacy of the bankster bailouts of 08-09, followed by right wing austerity, then culminating in the Occupy Wall Street protests of 2011.

From the Pentagon's own 1033 site.

Since its inception [in 1997], the 1033 program has transferred more than $5.1 billion worth of property. In 2013 alone, $449,309,003.71 worth of property was transferred to law enforcement. I've failed to find the precise data for the year by year increases in militarized weapons transfers to police departments since 1997. But one can extrapolate that, out of a total $5 billion over the lifetime of the program, and a whopping $1/2 billion in 2013 alone, combined with observation, there has been a dramatic increase of late.

Why?

Because the drug war is not working? Or because our own government sees its own people as the enemy.

Two White Guys Discuss #Ferguson via email

Mon, 08/18/2014 - 1:13am

(A very good friend of mine consented to re-publishing a conversation he had with an old friend):

"My friend messaged me about the Ferguson situation and police brutality. We had the following back and forth. I asked if he/she would be okay with me sharing it since I thought it might offer some perspective. He/she said "Yes."

Friend:
T, I am confused about the police brutality videos. (not the shooting). Its seems in the videos. both this new one and the one where the man had a heart attack that the people were resisting arrest. What are cops supposed to do when the arrested do not comply? sincere question to you cuz I am honestly confused.

4:57pm
Hey pal, in the Eric Garner case the cops used a choke hold, which is illegal. I know the cops have a difficult job and it's made exponentially more difficult when they are sent out to police poor communities of color for petty offenses to keep their quotas and statistics up. I think this is an inherent flaw in policing. They are targeting petty crimes in their "Broken Windows" policy rather than widespread white collar corruption and illegality.

To me, it's more of a macro level problem than micro. Eric Garner, a 43 year old black man, is dead because they went after a black guy selling loose cigarettes in a black neighborhood, easy pickens that pads their crime statistics. Now he's dead because of the excessive force used to take him down and his medical condition. And mind you, we only know his name because he's dead and it was filmed. Take either of those factors out of the equation and we probably don't know the name Eric Garner, yet those type of aggressive police tactics go on every day in black and brown neighborhoods.

Can you even fathom that video taking place in a white neighborhood with a white drug dealer? On a college campus where middle class kids drink and smoke and do drugs? Can you imagine SWAT teams in riot gear showing up in a white neighborhood or at a vigil for a white person who died?

 So much of our media coverage dehumanizes black and brown people so that when someone is killed in the streets, the knee jerk reaction is "What did they do to deserve it?" In Ferguson, people held a vigil to grieve the murder of an unarmed young man and seek justice. And they were met with SWAT teams in riot gear firing bullets, tear gas and sound cannons at them. Thank god we live in the age of cellphone cameras and social media or a lot of this would go under the radar.

This starts at the top. Cops follow orders. Since 9/11 local police forces have been militarized to insane levels and people are so anesthetized to it that they don't even blink when a neighborhood is being gassed by police. Again, since it's a black neighborhood a lot of white people are conditioned to think of black and brown lives, particularly male, as disposable or less important, so the reaction isn't one of horror but of accusation "What did they do?"

We are supposed to live in a free and equal society in America. Situations such as Ferguson demonstrate all too starkly, that we are neither free nor equal. And as someone who experienced police brutality at Occupy, with a baton to my kidneys while following orders to disperse with my hands raised, I know how easy it is to get caught in the unaccountable, all-powerful net of police force that does what it wants, when it wants without consequence.

Mind you, the NYPD violently cleared Zuccotti Park in the middle of the night with riot police and sound canons. They strategically did this in the middle of the night and journalists were shut out of a five block radius of the park. They even shut down the airspace above so no news outlets could film or report. I was there that night and I saw journalists showing their credentials and being refused admission by the NYPD. Cops follow orders. This came from Bloomberg or Homeland Security or whoever but cops follow the orders and crush dissent and make a mockery of the constitution.

But to answer your question, what do cops do when someone doesn't comply? I don't know. That is for the police force to decide and implement at the training level. But choke holds are illegal and a SWAT team at a peaceful protest is excessive and insane. And firing bullets and tear gas at civilians and journalists is a shaky precipice for democracy. That's why I think it's important that people pay attention to this and give voice to it because it's a violation of rights. To allow it to continue makes us all responsible. Where does it stop?

 5:13pm

Thanks Pal. I agree. I see a lot of differing opinions but at the end of the day we need to ask what kind of society we want or are supposed to have. Killing, gassing and violently squashing dissent are not things a free people should endure. I really appreciate you taking the time to explain this to me.

5:16pm

Any time, pal. This is really upsetting to me and I think it's important that people realize it, talk about it and act on it."

To Protect What?  To Serve Whom?

Tue, 08/12/2014 - 9:24pm


"To Protect and Serve" used to mean something "helpful" was implied regarding the relationship between Police Officers and their Citizens.

These days with all the Excessive Deadly Force being use by Police Officers on their Citizens -- it may be time to re-evaluate what their "public service" mission really is?


It seems like semi-ancient history, but the co-ordinated infringement of our basic American Rights, during the Occupy Wall Street protest-movement, should have 'opened our eyes' -- that the old mission had shifted.

All when no one was looking apparently, too ...


11 chilling facts about America’s militarized police force

The war on terror has come home -- and it's wreaking havoc on innocent American lives

by Alex Kane, AlterNet; salon.com -- Jul 4, 2014

[...]
In June, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) brought more attention to police militarization when it issued a comprehensive, nearly 100-page (appendix and endnotes included) report titled, “War Comes Home: The Excessive Militarization of American Policing.”  Based on public records requests to more than 260 law enforcement agencies in 26 states, the ACLU concluded that “American policing has become excessively militarized through the use of weapons and tactics designed for the battlefield” and that this militarization “unfairly impacts people of color and undermines individual liberties, and it has been allowed to happen in the absence of any meaningful public discussion.”
[...]

Here are 11 important–and horrifying–things you should know about the militarization of police.

1. It harms, and sometimes kills, innocent people. [...]

3. The use of SWAT teams is unnecessary. [...]

4. The “war on terror” is fueling militarization. It was the “war on drugs” that introduced militarized policing to the U.S.  But the “war on terror” has accelerated it.

A growing number of agencies have taken advantage of the Department of Defense’s “1033” program, which is passed every year as part of the National Defense Authorization Act, the budget for the Pentagon.  [...]


The other "8 things" are equally, if not more, disturbing.  I encourage you to click. To become an informed citizen;  to raise the 'public debate' when the occasion warrants it.
