Dear Public Servants,

First, I would like to congratulate you on your show of force at the recent G-20 protests in Pittsburgh. You successfully tested new tactics, suppressed the peaceful crowds, and protected private material property. Job well done!
However, as your boss, I found myself confused while watching the coverage unfold.  I suppose it was those darn Memorial Day parades and the learn-about-the-police day in Kindergarten that confuses me.
See, us regular Americans were taught that the police were supposed to protect and serve innocent citizens and fight crime, while the National Guard is supposed to protect our homeland from foreign enemies.  I’m wondering when the American people gave you the new authority to assault, batter, and arrest peaceful Americans?
Okay, I’m not that naïve.  I’m sure some politician inserted small print into legislation that makes it perfectly legal for you to perform as you did.  So I imagine that policy protects you legally.
Now, I’m not accusing you of illegal action, but I am wondering who my public employees have allegiances to –
American citizens and the Constitution, or something else?  I’m only asking because your actions appear to the layman to conflict with the First Amendment of the Constitution.
And visually, you looked strikingly like the Gestapo closing in on innocent civilians.  You were downright frightening! What with the bullet proof armor, tear gas, beanbag guns, sound bombs, and nightsticks, you looked like badass Storm Troopers.
Man, if I was a corrupt corporate executive who just stole tens of billions of dollars from the American people, I would be scared shitless of the likes of you.  Those criminals are going to piss themselves when you come for them.
You are going to arrest these hardened criminals right? I don’t expect you to arrest the stupid politicians though because they are just order takers.  I mean it would be like arresting privates at a torture prison for just following immoral orders.
Anyways, keep up the good work boys.  We, your boss (the peaceful American taxpayer who enjoys hanging out in safe public parks), are looking forward to you using that futuristic gear that we provided to go kick some hardened criminal ass.
Best wishes,
American citizens

Perhaps my deficient public education has not equipped me to understand the First Amendment, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

You are going to arrest these blatant criminals right? I don’t expect you to arrest the stupid politicians though, because they are just order takers.  I mean, it would be like arresting lowly privates at a torture prison just for following immoral orders.
Anyways, keep up the good work boys.  I know you’re just following orders.  We, your boss (the peaceful American taxpayer who enjoys hanging out in safe public parks), are looking forward to you using that futuristic gear that we provided to go kick some criminal-CEO ass.
Best wishes,
