State Rep Slams Sheriff For Defending Controversial MRAP Comments

Sheriff's deputy said armored vehicles were necessary to deal with "constitutionalists"

Washington State Rep. Matt Shea slammed Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich for refusing to apologize for comments made by a Sheriff’s deputy in which the officer stated that MRAP armored vehicles were necessary to deal with “constitutionalists” who could pose a violent threat.

As Infowars exclusively reported last week, during a charity event a Spokane resident asked an officer why cops need armored vehicles that were originally used to fight insurgents abroad.

“I mean, we’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition,” one deputy responded. “They have weapons here locally.”

This cop did not come up with this mind set on his own. It was taught to him., and that is a big problem. When cops are taught that we citizens are threats simply because we support and live by our Constitution, I think treason. I, and many, many others, envision treasonous Nazi cops who would attack and murder for a tyrannous dictator and who support the overthrow of our democratic republic.
Yet, cops still don't get it. They just can't see that they're being used to destroy America.
Fortunately, America is beginning to see it for them. And, we need to make sure Congress sees it, too.

The scary thing is that Congress has little power to stop this growing threat. As the bipartisanship has torn our Congress to not be able to agree on simple things like a budget for one and the issues that the vast majority of the citizens of the community face are left unheard, unsolved and misunderstood by the elected officials. The local police forces are becoming as money hungry as corporations and the desire to increase their budget to line their own pockets outweighs the duties they have supposedly sworn to protect. Furthermore the laws or moreover the regulations that they enforce are usually flouted by them themselves as if they are above the law. Laws are a creation of man, Man is inherently flawed and so by association laws are flawed. The police, government and citizens all need to come to the realization that "absolute power corrupts absolutely", once they do maybe our country will once again become the way the founding fathers intended as "the land of the free and home of the brave."
