“Local Police Stockpile Weapons of War,” News Channel 5 Nashville reported. “A massive military build-up is underway right here in Tennessee.” Local law enforcement agencies are snatching up huge amounts of weapons — from the Department of Defense — used in fighting in Iraq and Afghanistan,” the report elaborates. “Items include grenade launchers, mine-resistant vehicles and guns that have been deemed as surplus by the Pentagon.” And where is this militarization of police taking place?
“McMinn County … boasts beautiful scenery, but its sheriff’s department can boast something else,” the report explains. “The department received more military surplus guns than any other local department in the state last year.”
The McMinn County Sheriff? Does that ring a bell for anyone?
