He should have had a dog with him, so they would have likely shot and killed it instead......
The police these days(seemingly nation wide) are becoming increasingly militarized and out of control....Yes, there are exceptions. Hell, for our small rural town of not even 10,000 people, the police recently acquired a giant armored vehicle. If the thing had a turret/barrel and treads, I’d call it a black tank.... WHY??????
Having said that, I’m SURE they didn’t pay for it. The funding for it probably came from a federal grant of some kind. Likely either Homeland security(an agency that shouldn’t exist in the first place) or stimulus/0bama money.
Regardless of where the funding originated, we don’t need that damn thing(our town HAS somehow managed to exist for over 100 years without it). If our local police encounter a situation where such a monstrosity is necessary, they need to either call in the state boys, national guard, or something.
It’s a good thing to have locally.
Thin, when SHTF, it will be there for you and the locals to eventually commandeer and use.
Where else would you get that grade or equipment? ;)
Why? Google Freedom From War - state dept publication 5277. That is why.
