“We’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons.” Those were the words of a Spokane, Washington, sheriff’s deputy (shown) explaining why his department needed military-grade equipment.
In a video (shown below) obtained by Infowars.com, the deputy was answering a question from a citizen who wondered why his Spokane County Office of Sheriff had an MRAP armored vehicle. The deputy — only identified as a 20-year military veteran working under Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich — extolled the MRAP’s martial virtues using military language, which included pointing out that the vehicle allowed you to safely take “enemy fire.” The citizen then said that while she understood its use in Iraq, she wanted to know what utility it had on American streets. It was then the deputy replied:
“Well, I mean, we’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition. They have weapons here locally.”
Not surprisingly, speaking of “enemy fire” and dangerous “constitutionalists” almost in the same breath did not sit well with many. One of these shocked observers was Spokane Valley Republican Representative Matthew Shea, who, writes Prison Planet’s Paul Joseph Watson, “responded to the video by asking, ‘Will law abiding citizens who love the Constitution and Rule of Law be hunted down with MRAPs?’ ‘Constitutionalism is fundamental to being an American. To hate the Constitution and those who support it means you are a traitor to this country,’ added Shea.”
