Domestic security is getting pretty complicated, what with miliarized police operations, cameras documenting events that were previously unaccessible, "non-lethal" weapons that aren't really, and a really extensive internal security system.  Marcy Wheeler and digby discuss these issues.   Marcy summarizes the current understanding of who and how American citizens are being surveilled. Digby has been on the taser front from the beginning.   

Crime rates are way down. Incarceration rates are an embarrassment, pointlessly ruining the lives of millions of Americans.  Police departments are more diverse, especially in urban centers.  A consensus against the drug war seems to be growing--but the Feds and the local asset seizure programs don't want to acknowledge that consensus.

Complicated.

We discuss.
