Rise of the Warrior Cop
via Wall Street Journal
from bayonets and M-16 rifles to armored personnel carriers—American police forces have often adopted a mind-set previously reserved for the battlefield. The war on drugs and, more recently, post-9/11 antiterrorism efforts have created a new figure on the U.S. scene: the warrior cop—armed to the teeth, ready to deal harshly with targeted wrongdoers, and a growing threat to familiar American liberties.

(The best part may be the doobie’s owner screaming at the officer, calling him a liar and threatening that he can’t wait to sue him in court.)
