Man Suspected of Having Sex with Redondo Beach…

Police State in Torrance

Hey...my daughter and I were just driving up Prairie/Madrona Ave in Torrance...passing the Kaiser/Panasonic business park, and were unpleasantly shocked to see some silly and troubling Para-Militarized Torrance Police Parade with their Armored Urban Assault Vehicle and police cars and several...I THINK they're cops...but couldn't tell...because they were dressed as military assault personnel. First of all...how did I know that they were just there blocking traffic and making a nuisance of themselves and PARADING down the street? Because, they were just brandishing their Weapons of Mass Destruction (MACHINE GUNS) and their impenetrable Heavily Armored Urban Assault Vehicle, and were just marching along the sidewalk as casually as can be.

They weren't responding to ANY threat...if they had been, they wouldn't have been just blatantly strutting along the sidewalk looking all stern and grim. They weren't in a hurry...they were just parading....and the DAY AFTER CHRISTMAS?! WTF?!

What has happened to our country? Was Hitler resurrected in the last decade or what? I don't know...I'm thinking that maybe it's time to get the @#$% out of this Goddess forsaken country.

That $#!+ really gets under my skin. We are SUCH a violent, vicious, aggressive, imperialistic, hegemonic, capitalistic corporate controlled state. Money is at the bottom as well as the top of this whole disgusting mess.

And people still say; "America is still the best country in the world."

What?!

Who says?! Trust me, there are far more socially and politically and even SPIRITUALLY advanced countries on this planet than the Untied States of Central North America.

We're actually far, far behind in education, and even health care. Sure, if you can AFFORD good health care, then we definitely have advanced "Surgical" techniques...but as far as actual health CARE is concerned, we trail behind most other industrialized nations...hell, even some developing countries have better health care than we do.

I blame our corporate controlled "public?" school system where education is a total joke...and I blame lazy, greedy, politicians who's main goal is to get more for themselves while they screw up our political system even more than it already is. Then there are the corporations....we all know how corrupt and devious they are.

So here I am the day after Christmas lamenting the loss of my country...the loss of the city I live in while the police force I PAY with my taxes parades around the streets like a bunch of tin soldiers brandishing their Weapons of Mass Destruction.

What I want to know is, WHERE'S the REAL threat? Why were those guys (the Torrance Police Department) parading around Torrance driving three miles per hour...blocking the flow of traffic while brandishing deadly weapons? What was the point of that?

I know what the point of it was...and if you could be a fly on the wall of their briefing session before they decided to do this little stunt, you would be SHOCKED as to WHY they are doing it.

If you think I am some paranoid nut job...well too bad for you. If you think that it's a GOOD thing that these guys are doing what they're doing...then it's YOU who is the nut job, not me.

Will someone at the Redondo Beach Patch please interview the Torrance Police Department and find out what their excuse was for this retarded little parade they put on the day after Christmas? And why they felt it necessary to block traffic which was completely unnecessary.

They may have been working on this incident. The man said he was going to kill police officers and his family: http://redondobeach.patch.com/groups/police-and-fire/p/suspected-arsonist-shot-killed-at-torrance-school

You need a 72 hour hold!!! Some jerk tries to kill his ex, his mother and a BABY and you want to complain about the police response? I wouldnt have minded the Marines to deal with this guy. Torrance Police stepped up to protect the city and it's residents. You should check yourself in to the funny farm! God Bless Torrance PD for protecting us from the 19 year old wing nut! BTW...Nicole gave you the answer you wanted...its time to feel really stupid! Now, where is your equally long winded apology?

Dear fellow south bay residents...I am SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO sorry. I did that in one breath. So where was this guy? Was he hanging out at the Panasonic/Kaiser complex? Why were the para-military dressed cops walking so slowly? It didn't seem like they were going anywhere in particular. They just looked casual to me. Why have we become SO militarized in the last few years? I'll read the article...but I am still shocked at the new police state that we live in. Scary.

Bad guys know one thing, California disarmed all of it's law abiding citizens. Hence, bad guys know that their will be no resistance to their crime sprees from law abiding citizens. Gun Control, another failed liberal policy.........

Tim Sole still thinks he's playing "bang, bang, Cowboys-and-Indians" on the playground. The one thing we know was disarmed was this moron's IQ.

Jim B. thinks para-military cops and armored personnel carriers on our streets are "Kewl Dude". Jim was like saying to his dudes like, Wow, you no like wow man they was you know like kewl man it was black and the cops where like you know in camo man, thought I was dreamin' dude man it was like so kewl dude....... And he still thinks the Democrats didn't form the KKK......

we need annual certification of all Law enforcement as they have control over your life and death

Imagine if that arsonist decided to do more damage just for fun. I think that someone who doesn't appreciate being protected by our police could leave the country at any time for greater times in greater places.....always have that option so far. Hope that we continue to have that option because if they close up the borders and won't let anyone out of the country then I'd really worry. The complainers who see greener pastures elsewhere are free to leave!

Well apparently some of my fellow Torrance residents WANT and SUPPORT the militarization of of our police forces. Strange. Personally, I think our police departments should just do the original job they are paid to do whithout having to transform themselves into military units. Here's an article for those of you who criticize me for my QUESTIONING AUTHORITY figures. Remember, WE pay their salaries...not the Weapons of Mass Destruction manufacturers and their political lapdogs. http://admin.alternet.org/news-amp-politics/mrap-maxx-and-militarization-our-local-police-forces?akid=11380.304713.WqqOZv&rd=1&src=newsletter944419&t=7
