Outrage as military vehicles, equipment taken from officers in wake of Obama order

by Adam Shaw
November 25, 2015

Valuable vehicles and equipment are being yanked from law enforcement agencies across the country by the Obama administration in the wake of the president’s post-Ferguson order — as sheriffs and lawmakers tell FoxNews.com the equipment is needed, and losing it could put officers and the communities they serve in danger.

“These things are useful tools and the president taking them away will put more officers in jeopardy and at risk of harm or even death. I don’t know how he can sleep at night knowing his actions will have those repercussions,” Rep. Mike Rogers, R-Ala., told FoxNews.com.

President Obama issued Executive Order 13688 in January after the 2014 riots in Ferguson, Mo., amid concerns about the “militarization” of the police fueling a heavy-handed response.

    LOL! Look at the pictures of the police cars in the Baltimore riots. Military vehicles can’t be smashed and set on fire like a police car. Military vehicles protect the occupants.

    The idiot sleeps well because the Secret Service protects his raunch arce. Take that away and see how fast he will want protection from the people, that is all of us, that he has screwed over in the last 7 years.

  • Faithful American says:

    More TRAITOROUS actions by the TRAITOR-IN-CHIEF!

  • dmttbt says:

    Obama would like nothing more than to get more policemen killed and terrorist type mobs protected while they destroy life and property. Let’s not forget that the major portion of demonstrators in Ferguson were bused in from other places and what they call a demonstration or protest consists of damaging and setting fire to local stores and I am sure housing will be next. What part of peaceful protest says you can damage and destroy and steal?

    What a stupid Asshole!! Obama continues to show the US, and all other countries what an ignorant good for nothing awful jackass he is !!! If anyone ever needed to be kicked out of office, and put in a cell, it is definitely this jerk playing at being President. He doesn’t know his ass from a hole in the ground.

      He is the puppet. he does exactly what the puppeteers want. Soros, UN, King of Saudi Arabia. Remember, he’s the one obama bowed down to. In one of his books, and when he was elected: “I will fundamentally change America”. Too bad no one with brains asked him how. Too bad the rinos never vetted him.

  • I quit, not playing anymore. says:

    Possibly saw that MOST sheriffs wouldnt violate the constitution and swear oaths to the federal government and its treasonous treaties. Just an assumption and an opinion. I personally think militarization of police forces in america Is a sick and disgusting idea.

  • Dave N. says:

    This is mind boggling, first the Obama administration gives all this hardware to the many police and sheriff’s departments and then reverses his/their position and takes it away. I’m not sure which decision was worse. Everyone in the media was screaming about militarizing law enforcement and many people jumped on that band wagon. Now that decision is being reversed and everyone is bitching again from the opposite position. Personally my only question was what the government was doing messing with local law enforcement in the first place, then making law enforcement into a bunch of bad actors at every opportunity, now taking away what they had provided, and continuing to denigrate law enforcement. This administration has destroyed the relations in virtually every community, between everyone and every race, we’ve backed up at least 40 years in race and community relations. I guess the Community Relations Expert isn’t any good at anything.

  • William Bryan says:

    The police do not belong having that type of equipment. If a crisis arises that is the National Guards responsibility which is activated by the governor of that specific state.

  • Icemancold says:

    WELL: OBAMA and COMPANY does not want the people to be better or as well armed as his ISIS brothers so he is trying to take away the peoples right to own guns. OBAMA does not want the LOCAL POLICE or SHERIFF as well or better armed as his ISIS BROTHERS so he is taking the equipment away from the POLICE and SHERIFFS. Can any one see the connection here ? First DISARM THE PEOPLE then DISARM LAW ENFORCEMENT so it is safe for HIS MUSLIM BROTHERS TO WALK IN AND SAY EITHER YOU BOW TO OBAMA AND AFFIRM YOU BELIEVE IN ISLAM AND ALLAH OR YOUR HEAD WILL BE CUT OFF.!!

    1. unique201 says:

      That would be great. They should have done this when he started firing all the Generals etc.

      1. Hillaryoncrack says:

        Those Generals should have been the first ones to step up. But, yes, you are correct.

        1. unique201 says:

          Thank you. Those Generals need to continue to speak out.
          That is why I love Wikileaks and Chelsea Manning. They
          had the courage to speak out, and I forget the name of the
          young man now living in Russia. As soon as I hit the post
          button I will remember his name. Got it – Edward Snowden.
          OK post.

  • peanut butter says:

    Obama wants to send them to military ranges to have them destroyed, I guess. He wants to leave the police without protection so they can be gotten rid of. He has been complicit in the deaths of officers ever since Mike Brown rushed that officer in Ferguson and got killed for his own actions. He’s NEVER stood up for LEO’s.

  • SDofAZ says:

    He did it because he is Dick-Tator. And congress will do NOTHING!

      yup, dick-traitor, along with congress.

  • nevergivein says:

    I think Obama is realizing that the Police Departments and Military he has been trying to pull under his control will side with the citizens, not with him. His ploy is backfiring and he is now trying to remove the threat to his agenda by removing the equipment from Law Enforcement Control.

    The police are to serve and protect not terrorize the American public.
    Sadly the old days of the policeman being your friend is long over.
    I am not saying that all policemen are bad I have dealt with some very fine police officers.
    But when police are militarized and have the power to seize your assets without proof of a crime this is going a bit too far.
    When SWAT teams break in the homes for nonviolent crimes and innocent people are hurt it gives all police a bad name.
    God bless the police who truly serve and protect!

  • Buford says:

    Undoubtedly to deprive states of a defense against his forces. Now we can rest assured that when we hear squeaky tractor treads rumbling down our street, it isn’t our local guys coming to help. It will be ISIS here to get their ticket punched.

    1. adbj102 says:

      The old M48 is completely silent! I watched one in a parade years ago! Until he reved it up we didn’t even notice it, along with a group of ROTC cadets! (And as usual one liberal bitch complained about in the liberal newspaper) She was offended by the Cadets!

      1. Buford says:

        I watch too many shows like “Combat” so my point of reference is admittedly dated. As a vet buddy of mine used to say, “it is the one you don’t hear that gets you,” so I’m hoping to notice what does not belong before it notices me… in time to do something about it.

  • Thomas Goss says:

    Who the hell is Obama to take these pieces of equipment away from anybody. Our law enforcement officers should be using these pieces of equipment to destroy Obama. SCREW this muslim piece of shit in our White House.

  • Jack G Simpson Jr says:

    It’s gratifying to see that there are people in this country that can see what The Muslim in Chief in the White Mosque is doing. Now all we have to do is get others to see it and take action.

      Thank you for your service.

      1. Jack G Simpson Jr says:

        It was my privilege.

        1. unique201 says:

          I did my best in the 60’s to protest the war to bring all of you guys home. I with a lot of others protested in front of the United Nations. Fortunately, Nixon stopped the war. I think that was his legacy unlike Obama who wants to prolong the war today. Happy Thanksgiving.

          1. Jack G Simpson Jr says:

            When I was younger I thought you protesters were traitors. Now that I have matured and have seen the results of your efforts, and the fact that all that was predicted would happen if Viet Nam fell have not come true. I apologize and say you were right. SSG U.S. Army (RET)

          2. unique201 says:

            SSG U.S. (RET)
            No need for you to apologize. I am just glad that the war ended and hopefully you have come back safe.
            I can understand that being in Nam you really didn’t understand what we were protesting. That horrible war took away our fathers, brothers, cousins and boy friends. It was a very unnecessary war just as all wars are.
            Again, I thank you for your service.
            Just a note:
            Do not turn your guns in and keep your ammo We may need it in a few years.

          3. Jack G Simpson Jr says:

            Not years sir, months. I believe we will be mobilized before the Muslim in Chief leaves the White Mosque. I have my pistol and I am going to get a good rifle too soon.

          4. unique201 says:

            I am female. If I were male I would have been in Nam
            with you. I am hoping he does not cause any problems and just leaves. I need to get myself some lessons and then get a gun. All my male neighbors are armed, I am not, although I have a large dog and wonder if anyone will shoot him. I hope not. May God be with all of us as he has been in the past,

          5. reggie says:

            Get your gun, and learn how to use it. Muslims HATE dogs, infidels and anyone who does not follow their rules. The Muslims i know believe that everyone needs to become muslim. However, they do not agree with the ‘is’ violence. They are even more vulnerable than many of us, so are afraid to say much.

          6. unique201 says:

            I will go on Tuesday to the gun range.
            Thank you for your advice.

    Obama’s agenda is to destroy the USA by any means available to him. Are his actions legal…probably not, but the POS Supreme Court, Congress and every government official, including all branches of the Military Brass, are scared to act. How long and how much can America take is to be seen. All I can hope for is that GOD is watching and on our side.

So much for the media being outraged about this takeover coming and notifying the people huh!!!! It’s coming, don’t know when , see, they are or were to come to police and teach us how to assimilate to the Muslims !!! CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS??? but now with stopping thîs massive amount if influx is it still in play?? I surmise it to be. This prez wants global running not individual heads of country’s! That’s the ultimate goal , once America has been taken over thrn the rest will be simple!

        Why did bozo crash the coal industry, and not keep up the railroad, then turn down the pipeline after it sounded like it would go through. Soros, mr green, bought millions of coal shares at “fire sale prices” per Bloomberg. Guess those regulations will disappear. Buffett did the same to railroads. Oil revenues will be quite lucrative. No worries that a pipeline is safer than rail transport. So the walls are closing in. Monsanto, big pharma, railroads, coal (lots of research with some good results to reduce emissions), obamacare,.. and we’re worried about whores like the Kardashians, and who won (fill in the blank).

      4. dmttbt says:

        One of the problems is most of the people I talk to about this say that he will be gone in a short while and we will not be bothered with him again. They need to wake up and see that the people he put into positions will be with us for a long long time. The military officers who have been retired and replaced with his Muslim partners do not have American interests in mind. These bleeding heart people who say they are not all bad(Muslims) are not looking at the true picture. When a war brakes out we don’t need to be looking over our shoulder to see if someone is going to remove our head or cremate us while we are still alive. Our government needs to work as it was intended. There is nothing old fashion or out of date about it. CAMPS FOR THOSE WE CANNOT FULLY TRUST SOUNDS GOOD TO ME. If their country is so bad they need to stay there and straighten it out not come here and screw ours up.

Now that has backfired, he wants to take their toys away and give them to ISIS most likely! He and Hillary are doing their best to keep it covered up, but it will eventually surface that they Armed and Funded ISIS from Benghazi!

          1. dmttbt says:

            I don’t know why people can’t see the truth when it is right in front of their noses. The media is going crazy questioning Ben Carson about a scholarship being offered or not being offered. He said he was told to apply and didn’t because he intended to pursue a career in medicine. They want to harp on if he said in 1984 that the pyramids may have been used to store grain. He could have said I don’t know but that would have been ducking the question. We will never find a person, man or woman, who knows everything about everything. that is why they have appointees and other cabinet members who specialize in certain things. For my part they should do away with most of those departments and concentrate on nothing other than defense of our country and that should be guided and agreed on by the individual states. They ask nothing about Obama’s religion as a person other than the fact that he went to reverend Wright’s church. The fact that the reverend was a Muslim before that never got to see the newspapers or any news programs. How about the part that Obama’s mother and father were communist? What about the faith of his grandmother and grandfather?? Would he have been elected? Was it a true election?

        2. tchr says:

          Just got an e-mail from wnd.com. Headline–Thousands of ISIS Fighters Now in U.S.. If this is true, Obama should be arrested and charged with Treason. Return to the old-fashion punishment.

      One thing that this will do is get more of law enforcement on “our” side. They are now seeing that the “gummint” is not their friend and has been using them to accomplish their agenda.
