Hello, "Conservative" Police State

 "Iff you haff nozing to hide, vhat iz ze problem, Mein Herr? Papers, please"

“...the mayor and police chief announced that starting this month police in SWAT gear carrying AR-15s would patrol the streets.

“If you’re out walking, we’re going to stop you, ask why you’re out walking, and check for your ID,” police chief Todd Stovall told a December town hall meeting. As if to render the implementation of a visible police state more palatable, Stovall assured residents that police stops would not be based on any profiling: “We’re going to do it to everybody,” he said.”

Republican “Conservatives”, not conservative people, will build and support the American police state, as long as they get to keep their Second Amendment. The rest of the Bill of Rights...well that’s not so important, is it?
