    RICHLAND | In what appears to be the second such drill, Special Forces have been deployed domestically alongside local Sheriffs to train for midnight raids in Richland County South Carolina.

    My question is:


    Are SWAT teams now planning on deploying overseas with the special forces?

    or

    Are the Special Forces planning on using their training here?

    SWAT teams have more training and experience with house-to-house searches--which the military frequently finds themselves doing in places like Iraq and Afghanistan.

    Don't think, however, that the military mentality and equipment associated with SWAT operations are confined to those elite units. Increasingly, they're permeating all forms of policing.

    As Karl Bickel, a senior policy analyst with the Justice Department's Community Policing Services office, observes, police across America are being trained in a way that emphasizes force and aggression. He notes that recruit training favors a stress-based regimen that's modeled on military boot camp rather than on the more relaxed academic setting a minority of police departments still employ. The result, he suggests, is young officers who believe policing is about kicking ass rather than working with the community to make neighborhoods safer. Or as comedian Bill Maher reminded officers recently: "The words on your car, ‘protect and serve,' refer to us, not you."

    This authoritarian streak runs counter to the core philosophy that supposedly dominates twenty-first-century American thinking: community policing. Its emphasis is on a mission of "keeping the peace" by creating and maintaining partnerships of trust with and in the communities served. Under the community model, which happens to be the official policing philosophy of the US government, officers are protectors but also problem solvers who are supposed to care, first and foremost, about how their communities see them. They don't command respect, the theory goes: they earn it. Fear isn't supposed to be their currency. Trust is.

    The police around here are overwhelmed with crime and need all the help, training and manpower that they can get. So this training is a good thing.

    Police lives matter and the Democrats have caused the number of police officer murdered this year to double from last year.

    Neither. The nature of combat in an urban environment in Iraq and the small team capabilities of SWAT make this a joint best practices exercise. The operations they both do are similar from a tactics perspective, enter and clear room, snipers etc.

    It's also Infowars so I'm sure they are cranking up the fear factor as usual.

    In the 80's as an MP in the Corps we went through house to house training. We were informed that the suburban house to house warfare was going to be the setting of the future. We had plywood cities we trained in and we also did house entry training with the LA Sheriff department. This type of training is nothing new.

    Police states rise when republics fall. No worries it's been going on like this for centuries.
