Police State: Growth Rate of Cops Exceeds Population Growth

Kurt Nimmo

The Bureau of Justice Statistics has released a report demonstrating the growth of police in the United States.

The survey was conducted with agencies that participated in the 2008 Census of State and Local Law Enforcement Agencies and the results were released by the Justice Department this month.

Between 1992 and 2008 the numbers of police grew by 25 percent. In 2008 there were 705,000 full-time sworn officers employed in the United States. The number was 564,000 in 1992.

This represents an annual growth rate of 1.6 percent, which exceeds the 1.2 percent population growth rate in the United States, according to the survey.

Law enforcement grew its ranks despite a significant decline in crime. According to FBI statistics, murder, rape and robbery went down in the United States in 2011 for a fifth consecutive year. Compared with 2010, the new figures show violent crime down 3.8 percent overall and property crime was down 0.5 percent, CNN reported on October 29. Justice Department figures show the crime-rate fell to an all-time low in 2011.

Despite the decline in crime, police departments around the country are rapidly transforming into paramilitary organizations. Forbes reported last year that the Department of Homeland Security granted local cops $3 billion that was spent on "necessary tools" like BearCats and armored personnel vehicles.

In 2011 17,000+ federal, state and local agencies accepted more than $2.6 billion in donated military equipment, much of it used in Iraq and Afghanistan. The combat equipment and lavish funding from the federal government are intended for all-inclusive counter-narcotics and -terrorism enforcement activities, Forbes notes.

The massive presence of militarized police at the establishment’s presidential conventions this year and as a now routine fixture at globalist confabs reveals the real reason for the militarization and growth of the police despite falling crime rates -- the United States is a police state and the enemy is not al-Qaeda, anarchists (many who are police and FBI agents provocateurs), or even violent drug gangs.

Americans opposed to a government long ago captured by transnational corporations and their bankster and one-world government globalist overlords are the enemy.

9885 At least some being is trying to multiply, i refuse to bring kids into this world of assholes! I was treated like an outcast by my step father for as long as i can remember. Never once was I allowed win any argument, battle or get any satisfaction growing up, just resentment the whole time by him! i can only imagine what it must feel like to have a father that actually loves you and respects you on a daily basis. Something i will never get to feel or understand , ever! So i hope I'm broke forever because I will never bring life onto this fucking world! AMEN!
