I Fear For The Republic

NYPD Commissioner Bill Bratton announced Thursday that 350 heavily armed NYPD officers, called the “Strategic Response Group,” will soon be patrolling protests and the city at large.
He said the new strain of hyper-armed police will be

“…equipped and trained in ways that our normal patrol officers are not. They’ll be equipped with all the extra heavy protective gear, with the long rifles and machine guns — unfortunately sometimes necessary in these instances.”

Bratton announced  their purpose is specifically

“…designed for dealing with events like our recent protests, or incidents like Mumbai or what just happened in Paris.”

And so it begins…
Domestic, civilian police forces patrolling-at-large (not on-call, like SWAT) in a major American city.  Not that it matters, but one where the citizens are largely unarmed.
I can see other cities following suit.
Can you say POLICE STATE?  Sure you can.
I fear for The Republic!  (What is left of her.)

  1. There’s very little left. DHS “police” forces have been patrolling Seattle (and responding to calls alongside the Seattle PD) for a couple years now.
