Mark S. Mann (a.k.a. Marksmann4truth) is the pseudonym of someone who works in law enforcement and the firearms world, who contributes to the popular SGT Report, and who is all too aware of the police state spreading through America at this time. Here is an inside look into law enforcement and the "federal government creep," as he calls it. We start with a discussion of an interesting article in Harper's magazine on the Bundy Ranch standoff and the public range lands of the West, which is here for you to read. Mark then gets into the militarization of local police, explaining an angle unknown to many of us: the conversion of "green" mindset into "blue," which is one reason police are not behaving like good public servants.
