Amid growing criticism of the military-style equipment and tactics deployed by police in Ferguson, Missouri, a Democrat from Georgia plans to introduce the “Stop Militarizing Law Enforcement Act” in Congress next month.
Rep. Hank Johnson asked his all his colleagues Thursday to join him in supporting the bill, which he said in a letter “will end the free transfers of certain aggressive military equipment to local law enforcement and ensure that all equipment can be accounted for.”
Images of assault rifle-carrying camouflaged police riding through Ferguson on military vehicles similar to the IED-resistant equipment used by American armed forces in combat have proven to be a jolt of energy for a long-simmering debate about police militarization. In his letter to Congress, Johnson signaled that he expects his bill to break through the partisan gridlock in the House.

THIS IS A GOOD THING TO CALL YOUR REPS ABOUT.

History in the making.

I highly doubt Republicans will let this go through, but still.

Distant, and dim all to

Finished SAO tonight. I have no strong feelings about it either way tbh. There were a lot of cool concepts but there were also a lot of cheesy and gross (espescially in the AElfheim half of the show) things.
