“Rescue vehicle” my sweet aunt’s pa-toot. More like “Revenue Vehicle”.

Oh, I believe a mono metal tungsten sabat would cause some havoc upon it...
We need cops, Stockton is bad, and I have to allow that’s impressive gear:
But with budget prospects being what they are, this shows a failure in leadership —we need to fire LOTS of people at the top.
This extravagance shows bad judgement —people have to lose badges.
The solution is to stop the flood of PEOPLE who are making Stockton famously bad.
They open the floodgates, then shriek about their “emergency needs”. Hey, sorry, but quit INDUCING the emergency.
I’ll bet I can disable it with a bucket of paint or a tarp, If I could only get close enough, or above it.
Civil Forfeiture was intended to give cops “skin in the game” —to INCENTIVIZE enforcement.
And ya know what? That is what it DID —lots of innocent no-knock break in’s, with some really spectacular cases of PROPERTY clearly being targeted —one poor guy who had NO criminal history (but plenty of beach property) was arguably murdered, some years ago.
Oh! And his property was taken.
In other words, the most prominent perps of home invasion were —ARE— cops.
Note —I have abused drugs and I don’t (knowingly) keep friends who do.
Except for the very visible front tie rod that once severed,or damaged could cause
the invincible juggernaut to be unstearable. Have a nice day.
Keene, New Hampshire, police bought one of these with a gov’t grant. They were so excited that they were getting a ‘tank’. Keene is a little town in rural farmland and not much more.
We’re in a police state, no doubt.
The city not too long ago closed down a substation in the North part of town due to lack of funds. I don’t know if their priorities are quite....right.
Why do the police need an Armored Personnel Carrier?
Why do we need a SWAT team to arrest someone for failing to pay child support or a warrant from parking tickets?
What’s the justification for the police to look more and more like the military?
Are the rates of people shooting at police officers that much higher than in previous decades?
Is there suddenly an increase in people using high caliber weapons against the police?
(The most common guns used in crimes are cheap .25’s and 380’s and .38’s, not M4’s, Barret 50’s and RPG’s)
Do the Police really fear us that much?
A cyanide bomb used to kill gophers will deal with the occupants. Lighting up 5 gallons of gasoline underneath will make it incomfortably hot inside. Some black Krylon paint on the windshield will render the visibility to zero making it unsafe to drive. Under $10 in materials.
Does it have gun ports, so they can shoot puppies from behind cover?
Stockton is about to declare bankruptcy, and the roid boys are buying new toys. The properly equipped people will squash your Nazimobile like a bug when the time comes.
“Negotiations between Stockton, California, and its creditors wont yield enough savings to keep it from becoming the largest city to seek bankruptcy protection, a lawyer for an employee union said.”
