SWAT Team Mania: The War Against the American Citizen :: 06/16/2011
The militarization of American police--no doubt a blowback effect of the military empire--has become an unfortunate part of American life.

Among those federal agencies laying claim to their own law enforcement divisions are the State Department, Department of Education, Department of Energy, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, and the National Park Service, to name just a few.
