I am in the security assurance field and this is a must read for everyone. The magnitude of technology's inroads into daily life, and the ability to cheaply store ALL information in the era of Big Data should make all of us pause and ponder how the trend plays out. It is a question that should concern all people who care about privacy and protection of those rights.
The book is impeccably researched and while it finishes in 2010, it is relevant since this is the information we see in today's headlines!
I will be purchasing Shadow Factory II in the near future.
Historically well researched, this book provides a candid look into the rise of military police that patrol our streets. It traces the roots of such mobilization through the creation of the first SWAT teams along with the excuses used to proliferate military troops (police and traditional military) onto American streets. The history of laws and Supreme Court rulings are the backdrop for the real struggle of the US Federal government to consolidate power through the war on drugs and terrorism and the excitement of police forces that are essentially funded by asset forfeiture and their own abuses of power.
While the conclusion might be correct, that we are not in a police state, it's impossible to argue that we are not heading there and heading there fast. If nothing else, it is a great expose of what is happening and what awaits innocent American civilians in the future if the trend is not reversed. The book discusses "community policing," as well as other tactics to help improve the situation but concedes at several points that the harm is essentially irreversible. What has created an us vs them (people vs. police) culture that has ruined millions of lives is not something that can easily be forgiven and certainly should not be forgotten. These policies are good ideas, but the reality is, the police state is here. It's just that most of the victims are still the unwanted that the politicians who sought successfully to consolidate states' powers at the federal level want to get rid of. The irony is the complicity of so many Americans who don't realize they're next on the list.
Well before the end of the book, the Castle Doctrine (along with the Bill of Rights) is laid to rest, never to resurrect again or be of any actual significance. This is a book that every American citizen should read, especially those having leftover delusions of the Castle Doctrine and police forces that serve communities. While police are necessary, the military as police forces that are now patrolling the streets of even the smallest towns are neither properly equipped, trained, or ready to deal with either police or military matters, leaving innocent civilians to be caught in the crossfire increasingly aimed at them.
This seat is great. We were a bit hesitant because of the cost, but it really is a nice seat. It's so sturdy and I feel like my daughter is really safe while in it. The straps are really long. I like this because they stay over the side of the seat when I'm putting my daughter in and don't get caught under her. The only thing I don't like is that it is a really heavy seat. It would be a pain to travel with or move around a lot. This doesn't bother me because we leave it in my car, but if it was being used in 2 or more cars it might be a pain to move. Overall, we are really happy and pleased we purchased the foonf.
