In response to a recent increase in crime, Paragould Mayor Mike Gaskill and Police Chief Todd Stovall offered residents at a town hall meeting Thursday night at West View Baptist Church what could be considered an extreme solution — armed officers patrolling the streets on foot.

Stovall told the group of almost 40 residents that beginning in 2013, the department would deploy a new street crimes unit to high crime areas on foot to take back the streets.

"[Police are] going to be in SWAT gear and have AR-15s around their neck," Stovall said.

"If you're out walking, we're going to stop you, ask why you're out walking, check for your ID."

Stovall said while some people may be offended by the actions of his department, they should not be.

"We're going to do it to everybody," he said. "Criminals don't like being talked to."

Gaskill backed Stovall's proposed actions during Thursday's town hall

A REAL Justice Dept would arrest that Police Chief

Its a shame justice has been so perverted the past decade.

In the 90s this man would have been infamous. Now the choir is singing the praises of "If It Will Keep Us Safe..."

These cops will be the criminals. They have no regard for the constitution and if they stop everyone and ask for ID they have transitioned from being peace officers into an aggressive hostile military force that opposed to the most basic rule of law.

This is tyranny, it is not law.

This is a gang operating under color of authority, it is not a peaceful police force but instead they seek to be violent in how they harass and demand control.

Anyone living where such military patrols operate are not free, not free to go about their business or on their way.

Everyone in such an area is under attack and their freedoms and liberty have been stolen by the militarized police gang that has no respect for the law they were charged to respect and uphold, but instead now lord over like some 3rd world marxist dictator state.

The Red Coats tried this approach but were met with random sharp shooters picking them off when they were least expecting it.

Those who seek to steal the freedom of Americans to simply follow their constitution and exercise fully their rights there under may awaken a sleeping bear and find themselves under guerrilla style attack without warning one day if they are not hit first with a $100 million dollar lawsuit for civil rights violations.

Hey Chief Stovall

Ever seen "Assault on Precinct 13"?

"We're going to do it to

"We're going to do it to everybody," he said. "Criminals don't like being talked to."

Every day people don't appreciate being harrassed either. The full blown police state is emerging.

Know your Rights

"If you're out walking, we're going to stop you, ask why you're out walking, check for your ID."

Am I being accused of a crime? Am I being detained? Therefore, I do not have to answer your questions or give you my ID.
