Almost everyone enjoyed the movie “The Avengers” where earths mightiest heroes were assembled by a covert technologically advanced government agency named S.H.I.E.L.D. Many Americans might be shocked in learning that the United States has its own shield organization, well it is not exactly like shield until you combine it with the spying prowess of the NSA then you would have a real shield type agency. The agency I’m referencing is called D.A.R.P.A. ( Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency).
A marine attending a local New Hampshire City Council meet gave an impassioned testimony, voicing his concerns over the U.S. government arming its police with military style gear. At one point he became so disturbed at the apathy expressed by his electorate that he had to ask, “Is everybody blind?” Just look at the video below, those on the citizens behind the marine are shaking their head and seem concerned or at least engaged with what the marine was saying. Then you look next to the marine and see a city official almost seeming like shes going to fall asleep or seems bothered to have to sit and listen to the concerns expressed by a man who fought for her freedom.
