Police Militarization and You (Podcast – Season 2, Ballistic Radio Episode 77 – August 31st, 2014)

“…Freedom and liberty are different. Liberty is freedom restrained by the rights of others. And that restraint has to exist with armed force. There’s no other way to create that restraint. And if (people are) not willing to have the police do what’s necessary, within reason and our Bill of Rights, to restrain that freedom so that your liberty can exist intact, who exactly do you expect to do it?” – John Chapman


For this episode John Chapman of LMS Defense joins us to discuss the perceived militarization of the police. John talks about why the public perception has shifted towards “militarization”, and how it’s actually more or a specialization to catch up with new threats. John and Chappy talk about police training and how public misinformation fed by Hollywood and the Media has a negative effect on the public’s attitude towards police.  And, not to be confused with a popular kids attraction nearby in our hometown, entertrainment is brought up and the impact it has had in recent years on the shooting community.
