One sentence that explains why Berlin, Connecticut, police do not need military weapons. Missouri violence highlights militarization of US police.

Ferguson police threaten to kill peaceful protestors and reporters.

In the video, a police officer appears to be heard yelling to a reporter, “Get the fuck out of here and get that light off, or you’re getting shot with this.” Later on, the reporter with KARG Argus radio quotes the police officer as having said to him, “Get the fuck out of here or I will shoot you with this.”

The second video shows a Missouri police who was caught on video raising his weapon and telling Ferguson protesters that he would kill them.

“I will fucking kill you!” Albers shouts on video, his weapon pointed at unarmed protesters. When asked his name, Albers can be heard telling the protester: “Go fuck yourself.”

Are police officers just too aggressive today? Is our nation becoming a police state?

Berlin’s local police do not need SWAT rifles. Judge for yourself.
