Militarize our Borders by Carl ToersBijns *Sarcasm*

Militarize our Borders by Carl ToersBijns *Sarcasm*

Only after a controversial police shooting and the aftermath of a riot and looting event that cause police to respond in masses as well as being heavily armed and protected by what has been described as surplus military war equipment convention and a scene that has been identified as an occupied city inside Iraq or Afghanistan, does the public understand the need for war equipment now belonging to local police forces.

Looking away from Missouri and focusing our attention on the borders we would welcome such masses of war equipment by police and border agents to protect our carnal infected borderlands. Perhaps giving the border the same consideration as our metro police departments we could have an effective border force presence.

Conceivably one of the most preferred use of such equipment would be to protect our homeland from illegal invasions that range from illegal aliens to cartel criminals all the way to terrorist using the gaps in the fence as an opportunity to enter our country.

We could even expand the use of such equipment to watch our railway stations, our highways and use the electronic devices for mass surveillance to detect or deter intruders into our homeland. The uses are endless and they wouldn't cost much using the existing grants monies that has stockpiled our police forces nationally.

Perhaps, our national security can be bolstered by such presence and keep our communities safe from unwanted intrusions by illegal immigrants who sneak over our border daily without any problems and often find their way into the hustle and bustle of our bigger cities where they find work and housing provided by those who are sympathetic to their plight.

This may be a sarcastic approach to the issue that is before us but the United States has changed so much it is becoming a nation of armored locked down streets and highways and on the contrary we leave our borders wide open for intrusions and illegal activities. It doesn’t make sense to clamp down on our citizens in the city and let the illegals enter without resistance or deterrence of being caught.

Call it a satire or call it a nightmare but we have a border crisis and its not being addressed by our federal government that appears to be stoking the fires by restricting the Border Patrol in their activities along the fences. Instead they have withdrawn them from the border and put them in offices to process paperwork rather than apprehension of illegal entries.

Perhaps these militarized police forces can augment their presence and do what the federal government should be doing? The militarization of the police has effectively diverted the attention from the border and other real issues. In fact, if you ask the media, they may ask you, "What border problem?"
