The Justice Department is funding an unusual national training program to help police deal with an increasing number of volatile confrontations involving highly trained and often heavily armed combat veterans.

Developers of the pilot program, to be launched at 15 U.S. sites this year, said there is an “urgent need” to de-escalate crises in which even SWAT teams may be facing tactical disadvantages against mentally ill suspects who also happen to be trained in modern warfare.

“We just can’t use the blazing-guns approach anymore when dealing with disturbed individuals who are highly trained in all kinds of tactical operations, including guerrilla warfare,” said Dennis Cusick, executive director of the Upper Midwest Community Policing Institute. “That goes beyond the experience of SWAT teams.”

Hayden’s Note:

This begs the question, “What did you think would happen when kids are brainwashed into slaughtering civilians or going back for 4+ tours in a war zone?”

What did you expect these soldiers to do for a living when they return home?  What did you think might occur to sufferers of PTSD? Is the Fed finally realizing more and more troops are asking, “Why?” Many troops are beginning to question the status quo and the Government is getting worried.  We also constantly see new records being broken in regards to soldier suicide.

Their response?  Certainly not help or therapy.

Instead, they want to train street cops to the level of soldiers returning from “modern warfare” in order to combat the troops that we’re supposed to be scared of, but have a little yellow ribbon on our SUV in support of.  

This is a triple-oxymoron, demonizing war veterans, and will create a plethora of new “Federally Funded and Trained Soldier-Cops.”
