Is this Obama’s “civilian national security force” he said he would build up to rival the military?

Ferguson police got military-grade equipment from the Pentagon in a program apparently coordinated by DHS. Even police departments in peaceful tiny bedroom communities got fully military-level armaments. One tiny town in Washington state even got a tank, an armored tank!

Of course he couldn’t just announce one day he was doubling the size of the DHS, so it looks like he’s following the Bush administration plan of subsuming the local cops into this new national force.

We could take a note from the gun control freaks and ask what need does any local police force have for arming up like an occupying Army? Are they planning on provoking some big nationwide confrontations?
