DHS to replace military-style uniforms for federal police officers

Source: CNN

The Department of Homeland Security is moving "rapidly to replace" uniforms used by some of its federal law enforcement personnel after criticism over the military-style gear used by officers in Portland, Oregon, a senior department official said Tuesday.

Some Customs and Border Protection personnel, as well as Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers, have worn camouflage tactical uniforms while policing in Portland, according to DHS. Concern grew in recent weeks about the blurring of law enforcement and military personnel.

Top Pentagon officials have said they wanted this change.

Ken Cuccinelli, the senior official performing the duties of the Homeland Security deputy secretary, outlined the change in written testimony to the Senate Judiciary Committee.

15. Precisely

The Trump regime has shown how it can be abused as an unstable president's private army. Abolishing the DHS would also make sense financially.

How many trumpkins are capable of grasping the satirical intent?
And how many are capable of it but embrace fascism anyway?

5. My guess: Still no name, still no badge/id#, still covered face...

in other words, still an anonymous goon with zero accountability...just another clown/thug costume with no way to track down abusers.

10. Polls say anti-gubbermint republican voters

not terribly comfortable with unknown federal shock troops.

So, agreed?

Wait until we can fix this. Going to be a lot of fixes to prevent the slow slide of Democracy into whatever the hell this is.

Vote.

18. Too little, too late

The DHS is redundant and a complete waste of taxpayer money; just another senseless boondoggle. America doesn’t need this agency. They ignore domestic terrorists with assault weapons, yet tear gas moms. They have shown us what they really stand for and they have no place whatsoever in our democratic republic.

19. Etsy has a design for the new uniforms:



There's no way this could be confused with a military uniform. Well, maybe the Marines...

21. Disband the DHS & salt the ground on which it stands. It's an unconstitutional abomination...

Reference to Carthage, if you’re puzzled.
