A Video Introduction to Police Militarization

Would you like to share with someone a short video that provides a basic introduction to police militarization in America? A new video at Learn Liberty, featuring Independent Institute Research Fellow Abigail R. Hall, may be just what you are seeking.

The video presents in ten minutes general information regarding how police have become militarized in both equipment and behavior, as well as special interests that stand in the way of reversing police militarization.

Watch the complete video here:

To obtain some additional overview of the history and state of police militarization, check out Eastern Kentucky University Professor Peter B. Kraska’s written testimony for the United States Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee’s September 9, 2014 hearing “Oversight of Federal Programs for Equipping State and Local Law Enforcement,” as well as Washington Post writer Radley Balko’s July 23, 2013 KERA Radio interview regarding the rise of SWAT.
