Jim Kouri writes the Law Enforcement Examiner. He is the 5th vice president and public information officer of the National Association of Chiefs of Police and has served on the National Drug Task Force. He has trained police and security officers around the country.
For the past 6 years, Kouri believes there’s been an increase in the number of people who are joining militias and getting more involved politically in their community. He cited examples such as a militia that went to Oregon to stop the Bureau of Land Management from removing people from their property due to environmental concerns over fish. In another example he described the blocking of trucks attempting to bring illegal aliens into a California township when local law enforcement wouldn’t do anything.
Kouri noted that the government has ordered billions of rounds of ammunition for agencies that he never realized had SWAT teams such as the EPA and the IRS. Could this be a response to what the government sees as push-back by American citizens?
This raises other questions. For example, why are IRS employees having access to shotguns? Was Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal right to accuse the President and some Democrats of waging war against religious liberty and to claim that a rebellion is brewing and that there could be a hostile takeover of the Capitol? Is there validity to the claim that the government is actually provoking a rebellion?
Kouri indicated that Americans are seeing their way of life and their religious and political beliefs under attack by a consortium of left-wing radicals, Islamists and their apologists and one-world government supporters. This has people believing that their freedoms are in danger.
Is government militarizing of various departments an attempt to protect society or is there something else going on? You decide when you review this vital edition of Crosstalk.
