Are police in America a military, occupying force?

  • Are police in America a military, occupying force?

    Wouldn't police officers that walks the high crime neighborhood beat or bicycle or horse or motorcycle be interpreted by some as occupying force? A uniform police officer is a show of force to be the champion to the public for those who pray on them. When small individual force can't handle the situation, SWAT is called in.

Then if there is a gun situation that's beyond the individual police officer can handle, here comes SWAT.

  • Police Enforce Local Laws

    The police are not military or even a paramilitary organization. They are hired by municipalities and counties in order to enforce state and local laws. Police don't work under military terms although their firearms training would make people think a police force is a military entity. Police are simply here to protect and serve, not fight wars.

  • Police in America serve a noble purpose and are not an occupying force.

    Many conspiracy theorists try to spin the Police force as some sort of militarized group of men dead set on oppressing God fearing Americans. I think this is an insult to the work that these brave men and women do every day, when they risk their loves to protect and serve their fellow man.
