Like I send if he could give a good reason for it will save lives. Not just that comment but why it will.
How ofter are you going to run into people with .50 machine guns?? Yes we in the south like guns. But, seriously dud you need this huge armored truck.
It seems like showing off look at this TOY I got the huge new truck. I wouldn’t want them to use this vehicle against people who are lightly armed and just resisting. Show some restaraint.
It just seems police departments want to one-up each other with the NEW thing. Well if it saves lives fine. But a new gadget you may use once that cost a fortune is a waste.
On the other hand if I could get into my car I bet i could out run them! LOL That monster probably gets 1 mile/Gallon? They would look pretty stupid trying to push that to a Gas Station.
But seriously OK seized vehicles and money ok under some circumstances.
But alot of Department seem to seize items they really don’t have a right to or try and get more money than they may need for toys.
I get tired of hearing we need money for the schools (Education) think of the children, more tax dollars. The Police department is arresting more suspects and seize their house and other items that probably weren’t bought with Drug proceeds.
Taking a Car is one think but someone’s home?? The power they have to seize is to easy for them to take an nearly impossible to disprove.
Yeah a guy who deals 10’s or 100’s of thousands of dollars of cocaine take his cars or trucks that he trasport the drugs in but the COPS should have a higher burden of proof.
Taking someone’s car and all their cash money in a bank account when they were caught with a baggie of weed. That’s WRONG! That’s abusing your power. That is not justice.
That is Law enforcement abusing a power given to them. But we always hear about drug arrest and most are for Marijuana.
Which I just don’t think requires someone forfeit most of their assets for possesing. Nor going to jail for longer than some molesting a child or Rape.
Filling up jails with pot heads (Who are generally peacefull) with violent offenders? NO. The Marijuana dealer can go to a diversion court pay fines get treatment do community service.
Save us Some tax dollars here in SC. Were not made of money!! It may not be alot to some people but when your buying toys I’m cutting back on my lifestyle. Because of Taxes and Gasoline mainly.
So how about it. sell the truck to the ATF or whoever will buy it Arnold S. might buy it. And use money to give us some help.
I learned in economics tinstafl there is no free lunch!! The money comes from somewhere.
Just because it was a check from the Gov doesn’t mean it isn’t just your money they are hading back. And want you to thank them. UGHHHH We need to reform the TAX CODE.
