AUTHOR WILLIAM GRIGG DISCUSSES THE GROWING MILITARIZATION WITHIN LAW ENFORCEMENT AND ELSEWHERE IN AMERICA, AND THE PROPER CHRISTIAN RESPONSE, ON THE 23 – 27 MARCH 09 “FUTURE QUAKE” RADIO PROGRAMS
Nashville, TN – William Grigg, (www.willgrigg.com), author of “Liberty in Eclipse” and a number of other books, discusses growing evidence revealing the militarization of our civilian police force, and the increase in law enforcement's control of the populace and their daily lives, with host “Doctor Future” and co-host Tom Bionic, airing daily during the week of 23 March on the “Future Quake” program, broadcast on the Christian talk radio station WENO, 760 AM in Nashville, TN (and archived at www.futurequake.com). Mr. Grigg is a premier analyst and commentator on this topic, having monitored and documented this growing menace for many years, including in his popular on line “Pro Libertate” blog (www.freedominourtime.blogspot.com). In this foundational program, Mr. Grigg begins by discussing the traditional role of law enforcement in Western culture, consistent with common law principles, and the remarkable fact that for the majority of the history of society, it was accomplished successfully by the use of posses of deputized community members, led by a duly elected sheriff; this arrangement decentralized power throughout the community, provided enforcement of laws by one's “peers” (much like service on juries), and impressed upon every citizen their personal responsibilities regarding the establishment of laws, and their enforcement. The growing abuse of law enforcement power, concurrent with the establishment of permanent, segregated (form the public) professional law enforcers in the latter 1800s, is also briefly discussed, and its real growth in the early 20th century, such as the massacre of our own World War I veterans by Generals MacArthur and Patton, under the direction of our President, and its roots in the routine abuse of the indigenous Indian tribes. The origin of SWAT teams in the 1960s, in concert with perioidic operations against protesting citizens, is shown as evidence of the “modern era” rise in the militarizing of the civilian police force. More recent developments, such as the use of military troops (against Constitutional prohibitions) to disarm citizens during Hurricane Katrina, the attacks on living communities such as Waco, and the recent activation of the first Army brigade on American soil with the expressed mission to quell domestic civilian unrest, are also reviewed as further evidence of this acceleration in the constricting force of law enforcement on the public. The recent Congressional funding of widespread internment camps all over America is also briefly mentioned as an ominous development that bears further observation. The show concludes with the responsibilities that Christians bear, within their communities and in their families, to bravely deal with this threat, and to respond to these responsibilities in a Christ-honoring way.
