My personal opinion (very brief gotta get ready for work) in a police state all of the actions of the "police" are organized. I don't feel that the "militant" actions of the various local police forces are "organized".

A relevant number of law abiding Americans have traditionally viewed the police as adversaries (minorities, militia types, libertarians, radical left, etc), and now that number is growing substantially by people that are paranoid.
IMO, the "militancy" of LEO is out of frustration....their every action is viewed by someone as wrong. So why even try?
Hold that thought, gotta run.
