Repressive State Apparatuses

http://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2009/oct/01/police-buy-sonic-device-to-subdue-unruly-crowds/?page=3

The Washington Post reports the DHS is helping local police buy military style sonic equipment.

I believe it was precisely this equipment used recently against peacefully protesting university students and faculty in Pittsburgh.

It is sad to see that the Department of Homeland Security defines security in terms of repressive state apparatuses rather than in terms of Constitutionally defined rights.
