Ferguson Missouri Cop Who Threatened to Kill Protesters Resigns

After being put on indefinite leave by the St. Louis Police Department, Lt. Ray Albers has resigned from the police force effective as of this writing. While the officer was under great pressure, he threatened to kill protesters in a moment caught on video so a career change was perhaps coming whether he wanted it or not. The increasing militarization of police tactics has caught the attention of US Democrat and Republican politicians alike with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and Senator Rand Paul from Kentucky have both noted the disturbing trend towards military style methods being used on citizens rather than foreign combatants.
