The video of the Columbia, MO SWAT raid of a family's house on 2/11/2010 has gone viral. The police are using the same tactics as US forces in Iraq. The same methods as they're using to occupy a foreign country! Watch the these two videos and judge for yourself:
Not much difference, is there? The government is seeing that the political system is in crisis. Fewer people support it everyday. The militarization of the police is preparation to put down an insurrection. It won't be long before they'll be as bad as Pinochet's death squads.
