Rifles are associated with warfare, the FBI is rocking about with M4sKopikatsu said:It's more that drones are associated with warfare, and they're being used on US soil. For the same reason that 9/11 was a big deal, people take it very personally when they feel the fight has 'brought to us'. Some people might/do see this as the US waging war against itself, despite Dorner only being one man.Zhukov said:I love how Americans only get pissed off when it's Americans being targeted by drones.
Armed drones target people all around the world? Eh, no big, they're just dirty foreigners. Recon drone used to search for murder suspect on the run? THE END TIMES ARE UPON US!
Hey, I'm not a citizen of the USA, so clearly I'd be less entitled to a trail or any of that jazz.
There's also the fact that the LAPD has been firing on civilians in the search for Dorner.
Body armour is associated with warfare, SWAT is happy with that.
Multicam is a military uniform, which the DEA is using as their latest in fall raiding fashion.
Just because something is used by the military does not invalidate its use in law enforcement.
