The Fond Du Lac, Wisconsin Sheriffs Department will be receiving the ultimate in Zombie killing armored vehicles, bought from the same people who are contractors for the MRAP military vehicles. The high dollar vehicle will be delivered in 2012.
The county received a loaner TVP armored SWAT TRUCK from the factory that was actually the one used in the movie Batman, the Dark Knight Rises. It still had Gotham City PD decals on its sides. The Gotham City PD decals were peeled off and replaced with the appropriate Fond Du Lac Sheriff's decals.

If your american, and especially a christian american, your a potential terrorist in the eyes of the current DHS. Don’t expect any changes with the potential new President taking office in 2013.
The militarization of local law enforcement continues...
Indeed. I see a lot more articles where the police refer to us citizens as "civilians". That kind of mindset does not bode well.
Not all of us do and I correct any other officer I hear referring to a citizen as a “civilian”.
And yes that vehicle has nothing to do with the WOT, it will be used for high risk drug warrants.

No, it does not.
Just 40 years ago there was a panty raid there.!
Good onya. The deputies around here are OK. It's usually the big city types that are quoted that way - and I make a point to bring out that distinction is the newspapers comments section. And, maybe it's just the Medias' term, like "automatic revolver".
