Local Utah police gets grenade launchers and more from D.O.D.

The militarization of local police departments across the country continues to grow each year. As the US. Department of Defense continues to pass down their old used military equipment to local police departments, my question is what new equipment does the D.O.D. have?

The Utah highway patrol received a MRAP, which is a U.S. Army Mine Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle. I have several questions pertaining to this activity. Is this type of equipment necessary for civilians on U.S. soil? Should it be used for foreign troops that may invade America? OR are they preparing for martial law? What do you think?

Since the Law Enforcement Office support’s inception, which is called the 1033 program, has transferred more than $4.3 Billion worth of property to law enforcement. In 2013 alone more that $449 million was transferred according to the Defense Logistics Agency.

According to the Salt Lake Tribune: “The MRAP is not the only gift Utah law enforcement agencies have received from the military. In the two-year period beginning in October 2011, Utah police received 1,230 rifles, according to records the Defense Department provided to The Tribune.

Utah police also received four grenade launchers, 17 .45-caliber pistols and a handful of magazines and weapon accessories.”

Another side note concerning Utah, it holds two military bases there. The Airforce base in Ogden, Utah and the Army base which is one of the largest in the country is Dugway Proving Ground in Tooele County, Utah. Dugway is considered a massive testing ground for some of the most harmful chemical weapons the military has.

I’d love to read your thoughts on this in the comment section below. Don’t forget to check out Flow Of Wisdom with Sean Anthony every Sunday from 2 – 4 PM Central, 3pm Eastern live on GCNLive.com.
