by Robert Wenzel, Lew Rockwell:
Last night, I hit the streets of San Francisco and stopped off at a few favorite watering holes, looking for interesting women and/or interesting conversation. The female crowd was a bit weak. I suspect many had headed off to Halloween parties, something I don’t do. But I did have an interesting conversation with a salesman who sold night vision goggles to police SWAT teams.
When he told me what he sold, I did not tell him of my libertarian leanings. I considered it more of a fact finding conversation. I asked him, if he felt the police were becoming more militarized. He said,”No.” He was in San Francisco for a SWAT Team conference. He said most of the training was aimed at battling terrorism. But then he added, “You know, the greater San Francisco area has more SWAT teams than any other part of the country.”
