Alex Jones: Officer Jack Boot

Alex Jones missed his vocation as an actor. But he makes the point. Our societies' mindset is being militarised in the most insidious way. I have heard British cops talking about 'civilians' as if the police were something other than civilians.

Either this is being done through sheer ignorance of police regulations or despite them and deliberately to create the idea that the police are part of the military.

A third possibility is that the police, having in reality become para-military in nature (which I believe they have), are reflecting the true nature of things.

The police should be kept constantly under public control & reminded of their inherently civilian status.
