The video above and the description below was shared with the CopBlock Network by “General Gonzo S. Patton,” via the CopBlock.org Submission Page. Along with the video description, he states, “I despise this attitude in these Chickenshit Ticket Writers.”
The video was originally posted by Alex Jones‘ Infowars channel on Youtube back in 2014. It features a conversation between an unidentified “local resident” and two Spokane County Sheriff‘s deputies relating to the necessity of having a MRAP military vehicle and whether a group of children, who the deputies state were being given a ride, are being conditioned to accept the militarization of the police.
The deputies’ response to the questioning of the necessity of surplus military vehicles being passed on to local police departments is somewhat interesting. One of them states, “we’ve got a lot of Constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition. They have weapons here locally.”

The link was forwarded to me and is outdated, but serves as a reminder that our Heroes and Chickenshit Ticket Writers look upon those of us who believe in liberty, the Bill of Rights and the Constitution with disdain. I am posting this as someone who taught at the Washington State Criminal Justice Training Commission for nine years and when I graduated from the CJTC, I graduated top in my class, carried a badge and actually believed in the motto: Protect and Serve. This is rogue behavior and part of why I retired.
