Mentioned this conversation to a friend of mine at NASA, and he pointed out to me the fact that NASA has its own SWAT team.

I honestly don't know what to make of this, except that I wonder if many Americans are simply interpreting the Federation through a uniquely American lens with all the creeping militarism that comes with it.

Seriously: we live in a country where the fucking Department of Education has its own SWAT Team; if the Federation is anything like America, it probably shouldn't be.
Oh, I quite agree. I've been concerned about that for a while now. I don't see any valid justification for any cabinet branch to have a SWAT team except for the specific law enforcement agencies. And I'd really like to consolidate them - BATF, DEA, etc should all be rolled into FBI Task Forces, IMO, and all those SWAT Teams disesablished or moved to FBI.
