Posted on 08/10/2010 6:22:27 PM PDT by Extremely Extreme Extremist
There's a new vehicle designed to help keep the city of Milwaukee safe. The vehicle is called the "rhino" because of its armor. Private donations to Alderman Bob Donovan's Operation Impact were used to paint the donated truck and install surveillance cameras. Donovan said police will use it to monitor possible criminal and nuisance activities. "Is this going to solve all of our problems in this neighborhood? Absolutely not. Is it a step in the right direction? I believe it is. And if this doesn't work well by god, we toss it aside, we roll up our sleeves and do something else," Donovan said. The American Civil Liberties Union of Wisconsin is criticizing the new vehicle.
The ACLU said the vehicle could tip off criminals. The group also said it's a violation of privacy that will divert police resources. In a statement, the ACLU's executive director said, "The alderman should leave policing decisions to police commanders. Resident's don't need amateurs to protect them."
I thought this was about John McCain.
Probably make a good target in the projects.
are the “urban” folks using RPGs these days?
maybe the cops need some M1A1s
If we need armor to patrol city streets then its time to admit that we are in a quagmire and need to get out now!
I was going to suggest putting a Fathead of Miss Lindsey Grahamnesty on it.

I say nuke it from high orbit. It’s the only way to be sure.
(paraphrase of the classic solution from the movie “Aliens”)
I would not be surprised. MS 13 gangsters and mexican drug cartel thugs would have access to such.
as long as they are only observing in the street visible and not peeking into windows and are not using technology to look through walls via infrared (which the USSC has already ruled requires a warrant) then they should be fine as any other citizen watch group.
And if this doesn’t work well by god, we toss it aside, we roll up our sleeves and throw our tax dollars at some other expensive toy gimmick for a while.
