Police departments across the country are acquiring ‘propaganda’ ice cream trucks to change their images.
Why do I call them ice cream ‘propaganda’ trucks?
Police ice cream trucks are “official government communication to the public that are designed to influence public opinion.”
One has to ask, is Homeland Security providing grants (money) to police departments so they can purchase ice cream trucks?
Last year, I posted an article titled ‘Police State America in Pictures’ showing police departments, fire departments and ambulance MRAP’s. Because, so many police departments are acquiring ice cream trucks, I thought I’d do the same.
Did you notice anything strange about the above pictures?
Except for two pictures, there are no adults getting ice cream from the police. Why is that?
Could it be that adults don’t trust the police?
Remember, every one of these police departments also has numerous MRAP’s. If police departments really wanted to change their image, they would get rid of MRAP’s and countless military grade weapons they have acquired under the 1033 program.
Two years ago, I wrote an article describing how police deal with suspects.
Police training regimens at nearly all of our nation’s police academies emphasize military-style exercises, including significant hours spent practicing drill, formation and saluting, said Maria R. Haberfeld, a professor of police science at the John Jay College of Criminal Justice in New York.
Remember, police officers have been trained to fight the war on drugs and terrorism. Does anyone really think, police ice cream trucks will change the public’s opinions of them?
