That began the federalization of all police forces. Most cities did not hire additional cops but they took the Federal money with the "strings" attached.
I know of many small Texas towns with populations of 12,000 or less that now have SWAT teams. Can you imagine that back in the 70`s or mid 80`s ?

It is hard to imagine a more stupid or more dangerous way of making decisions than by putting those decisions in the hands of people that pay no price for being wrong.
