The picture on the right is the result of the war on drugs.

If you rage war against something, eventually it'll turn into war.

Cool infographic. I would love to see the percentages lower drastically for search warrants and have the SWAT teams primarily for the "armed or otherwise dangerous" category.

This is misleading. The police state would exist regardless of diversity. The powers that be want to circumvent the Posse Comitatus Act. Modern police already have equipment that would make a 19th century soldier jealous. Our police state today would be a totalitarian regime to the original founders.

Having the equipment isn't really an issue. I'm all for police using bulletproof vests and armor. I'm also fine with them having automatic rifles. I also believe that civilians should have access to the same equipment, to include bullet proof vehicles, vest, and full auto rifles. What I have a problem with is SWAT teams raiding houses for a general warrant when little to no threat exists.

The equipment available/owned doesn't alone create a police state. The attitude, policies, and actions are what determines a police state. The police can still terrorize people with truncheons and pepper spray.

In non-diverse societies, some group will be arbitrarily deemed untouchables and outcast in order justify mistreating them. Homogeny dies not bring peace or harmony. This cartoon is at least misleading and at worst propaganda because it shifts responsibility away from corrupt law enforcement that no longer wishes to protect or serve.

internet access creates diversity anywhere it is found, as it allows for different social circles that are no longer location based. this creates ideological diversity. people should be encouraged to self segregate, to gather together in like minded communities. this would rearrange the world geographically to match how it is socially. the idea that "white flight" or "gentrification" is a problem is a lie. the real problem is that those in poverty do not have the means to relocate to like minded communities. the other problem is that bad actors would intentionally relocate to communities that are not like minded simply to be in a better position to exploit resources. if those two big problems could be addressed and solved, it would fix a lot of the problems we are having.

The niggers aren't to blame for this one. Our national gang- I man the cops keep getting mil-spec surplus. Our cops have what our army don't use anymore they just put a police patch on it and call it a day
