Since 9/11, police departments around the country have purchased military surplus, outfitting themselves with hardware like LRAD sound weapons, armed military vehicles, rubber bullets and tear gas,short-barreled AR variant rifles, kevlar helmets, night vision goggles, and more.

After the rioting that's been taking place in Ferguson Missouri over the killing of an unarmed teen, Sen. Rand Paul is calling for demilitarization of the police. He's not alone. Military exercises in America's cities.
