Just indignation of the American society because of recent events in Ferguson forced the government and the president of the United States give up the idea to transfer military equipment to law enforcement agencies.
Started such a transfer of weapons to government agencies on the basis of the National Defence Act permits, signed in 1997. The most interesting thing is that this law allowed the transfer of military equipment and weapons, not only the police, but in the other state and municipal authorities. This also fell and the education authorities. This is not a joke, when schools are transferred rifles, grenade launchers and armored personnel carriers. The motivation was to ensure law and order in the schools.
It would be possible to doubt the veracity of the information, if in 2001 the educational area of Los Angeles did not get at your disposal APCs and rocket launchers game, and the same area of the city of Edinburgh in Texas did not create a squad SWAT. Application for purchase of Humvees was rejected, but the area itself has purchased for their employees assault rifles, according to experts TeleTrade.
The only ones who recognized officially such procurement of weapons and equipment, steel power California. In addition, in many American schools space is designed in such a way that parts of it can be blocked by bars. Apparently, this is done with a purpose – to put out the riots, and as a result received by the school of strict regime.
Such moments are, of course, the indirect impact on the markets, but do not forget that the formation of the foundation in the community is through the relationship between the society and the government. Degree of trust and confidence in the future in many ways determine the government’s steps to develop the economy. How people will be loyal to the government, and whether they trust him – these are the factors that can dramatically change the economic policy of the country.
