Holy shit, the NYPD is about to go full military

Anti-terror strike force!
Police Commissioner Bill Bratton announced Thursday that the NYPD is establishing a new anti-terror strike force.

The unit of 350 cops will be specially trained in high-tech weaponry to deal with protests, "lone wolf" attacks and evolving threats posed by terrorists, CBS2's Marcia Kramer reported.

The Strategic Response Group, Bratton said, will be dedicated to "disorder control and counterterrorism protection capabilities."
"Disorder control"? Rifles and machine guns to control mass protests?

This is what democracy looks like!
