“[P]olice are incentivized to go after certain crimes — like drug crimes — and not other, far more heinous crimes, like rape.
In the first place, federal cash giveaways make police departments’ reactions to drug cases much more swift and severe…
Furthermore, allowing military training of local police has ‘turned our police into drug warriors,’ instead of ‘police officers and peace officers.’”
