Popular Science is showing off the various new police tools, esp. non-lethal (i.e., torture) weapons: Cop Tech 2010. And has the following scary quote:
Part of the need for new equipment stems from the changing role of law enforcement. “The line between war and crime has become blurred,” Heal says as we drive away from the house. “Police officers are now expected to prevent and respond to terrorism.
