    (Reuters) - The U.S. government may soon lift a ban on the transfer of some surplus military equipment to police departments, according to a news report on Sunday.

    USA Today reported it had obtained documents outlining a plan which would lift an Obama-era ban on putting some of the military's surplus equipment, such as armored vehicles and large-caliber weapons, in the hands of local police departments.


    On Monday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions plans to address the annual meeting of the Fraternal Order of Police, the nation's largest police union. The report said Sessions could unveil the plan at that time.


    A representative for the Justice Department did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

    I don't really support our police officers having military equipment, but in light of these violent protests, I'm holding my tongue on that for now.

    My vote is no and resounding no.

    I don't want my police department to be an army. It is a police department. There is possibly room for some swat equipment, etc., but nothing like I see on TV.

    I don't for a moment believe all that militarization is designed for anything other than intimidating and controlling the average citizen.

    As for the protestors, they have plenty of equipment to contain already, but they aren't using them.

    I actually agree with you, nntrixie. I really do oppose military equipment being used by police officers.
