Why Do Police Officers In The Suburbs Wear Camouflage?

On Saturday’s MHP show on MSNBC, Melissa Harris-Perry asked, “Why do police officers in the suburbs wear camouflage?” I will add a few more questions. Why do police officers in the suburbs need an MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle? Why do police officers in the suburbs point their loaded weapons at a crowd of peaceful demonstrators? Why do police officers in the suburbs treat the citizenry as a war zone threat that must be neutralized? Why do police officers in the suburbs closely resemble American forces in Iraq or Afghanistan? And last, why are so many Americans indifferent to these questions?
