Constitutional lawyer and author John Whitehead of the Rutherford Institute joins Heartland’s Steve Stanek to discuss the growth in the aggressiveness of police forces, which seems to be increasing along with the size of their budgets.
Listen to the ridiculous account of the young college girls who went to the store to buy bottled water and cookie dough one night, only to find themselves charged by seven undercover cops in street clothes who jumped on their car, beat the windows, and even pulled a gun.
Another shocking story is how Mr. Gauger was arrested and then interrogated and lied to for 14 hours by sheriff’s police until they finally convinced him he had blacked out and murdered his own parents.
Hear the conclusions to these stories – and others – in the player above as Stanek and Whitehead discuss how police are disturbingly transforming from “keepers of the peace” into a full-blown military operation with armored cars, M-16s and drones.[Subscribe to the Heartland Daily Podcast free at this link.]
