The Root of Police Militarization

As an Executive Producer of the Truth in Media series, I am proud to share this work from journalist Ben Swann.  The militarization of police is something that all Americans should be very concerned with, and it's particularly incumbent upon military professionals to be aware of as lines are blurred like never before in our nation's history.  It is harder today to separate domestic law enforcement from the military, and Americans from the enemy.

It's an important issue.
