"If we’re training cops as soldiers, giving them equipment like soldiers, dressing them up as soldiers, when are they going to pick up the mentality of soldiers? If you look at the police department, their creed is to protect and to serve. A soldier’s mission is to engage his enemy in close combat and kill him. Do we want police officers to have that mentality? Of course not."

Don't kid yourself that this is a "Trump" phenomenon. The police ALREADY had that mentality, as proven by the number of innocent people they have been killing.
And this will continue no matter who is in the White House.
The only way to stop this is to hold BOTH our troops and police accountable to the law. But we have not done that for quite some time ... if ever.
