Heartlander of the Week: Shoot First, Ask Questions Later

To the Wisconsin State Legislature—admittedly, no one’s favorite organization most weeks—for limiting access to heavy weaponry by local police departments.

We’ve come a long way from the mannerly officer on the street corner saying hello to the passersby. Body armor, reinforced vehicles, side arms, M-16s, and then something called the SWAT team.

You could try a rallying cry like, “Remember Ferguson!” Or maybe, “Remember Detroit” when it was one of the greatest cities on the planet. Or how about, “Remember Democracy and Civil Society” before the Crack Wars.

Slip the Daisy down the Barrel. All I am saying, is give Peace a Chance.
