Cops with AR-15s to patrol town, harass people on the street

• Prison Planet

According to the Paragould Daily Press, Paragould Mayor Mike Gaskill and Police Chief Todd Stovall told about 40 residents attending a town hall meeting recently that because of a recent spike in crime, they were essentially militarizing the city.

“[Police are] going to be in SWAT gear and have AR-15s around their neck,” Stovall told residents. “If you’re out walking, we’re going to stop you, ask why you’re out walking, check for your ID.”

‘We’re going to do this to everybody’

In justifying this civil rights outrage, Stovall said residents who aren’t doing anything wrong should save their indignation.
