In recent years, protesters, politicians, and some members of the press have decried what they call the “militarization” of American law enforcement. Citing things like the acquisition of equipment through the 1033 program — which has enabled law enforcement agencies to remain effective despite diminishing budgets — critics have said that police in America are too heavily armed and armored.

In this podcast segment Jim and Doug discuss Jim’s recent trip to Europe and what he saw there compared to what we have here.
