Police trainers gleefully sing and dance as they train police to kill the public with weapons of war (updated).Submitted by fiodax on Sun, 06/16/2013 - 21:34
This is some kind of surreal sick comedic distopian alternate universe that we have found ourselves struggling to understand. This video is not portraying a military outfit. This is portraying a POLICE FORCE. Singing and dancing while they demonstrate some kind of disturbed orgasmic pleasure showing off the weapons of WAR they are training with in order to engage you and I, the general public. The "uptown girl" in the video looks a lot like Oklahoma's Governor, Mary Fallin, which is very fitting, considering her policies, and the context of the video. Watch it. Just watch it. I cannot explain to you how insane I think this is. Is this your tax dollars at use training your police to GLEEFULLY assault you with military weaponry?
Filmed at the Alliance, Ohio police training facility, funded by the drug war and even the DOD.
[I updated the title and description to address more accurately the nature of the video after my error was pointed out by other readers.]
UPDATE: OK. So maybe I over reacted about this video. I'm a bit jumpy with regard to this kind of stuff anyway...I tend not to give the state the benefit of the presumption of innocence...and I think that's OK.
I apologize for any hyperbole that was born out of my immediate reaction to the video.
I still find the overriding context of the video disturbing.
