#2 I have often feared that the tactics, techniques, and procedures used for so-called nation building in the "Good War" are perhaps little more than a rehearsal for what might one day also be used for nationrebuilding elsewhere. The militarization of domestic law enforcement only reinforces my fears.

The bottom line is that the absence of the 4th amendment actually doesn't let them do their job better. They were doing fine for many years while respecting the constitution. They can go back to doing it that way again.
And if you think that "police theory" about what *should* work is any good, "because they know what they're doing", just remember that for many years, police were *certain* that strict gun control would reduce crime.
