By an Executive Order, Pres. Trump lifts ban on military gear for the U.S. Police forces.
The Trump administration during August 22nd through-the 25th, 2017, lifted a controversial ban on the transfer of some surplus military equipment to U.S. police departments. The new plan takes effect immediately and fully rolls back an Obama administration executive order, that blocked armored vehicles, large-caliber weapons, ammunition and other heavy equipment from being re-purposed from foreign battlefields, to America’s streets. But the question still remains, why does the U.S. police force require or need military grade gear, weapons, and/or vehicles, to serve and protect the public?
