More on all the stuff the Pentagon gave to cop shops

... The program has doled out $5 billion in equipment since 1990. Most of it was general office and maintenance equipment – shovels, copiers, computers – but the Pentagon largesse included tactical military equipment worth more than $1.4 billion, disseminated in 203,000 transfers to about 7,500 agencies. Even after Ferguson, the program continues to chug along, transferring $28 million in tactical equipment in the past three months.

Here in Texas, Grand Saline got 16 bayonets. I'm wondering who was the communist prick who thinks that bayonet charges belong on the police force continuum.
