    Do you have a problem with police driving bullet proof vehicles?

    I suppose they should expose themselves to molotovs right?

    Just a little fire right?

    It is too bad those police haven't killed the ones throwing molotovs. Or some Good Samaritan who sees those scumbags throwing them.

    I do have a problem with the militarisation of the police, yes. I agree with both Mo. senator and governor. And I was very offended to see on day one, police atop of their armoured vehicles with their automatic weapons trained upon American citizens standing with their hands in the air!

    Molotov cocktails, tear gas fly in Ferguson, Missouri | FOX6Now.com

    I disagree with your concept of justice and am rather glad that they didn't.

    Easily said when you aren't the one getting shot at right? Do you not have relatives or friends on the police force? You think having bullet proof, aka life saving equipment, is militarization? Or stun grenades, aka a less lethal option, is bad?

    Armor is good. Armor means less dead cops. Is that bad? Or should cops not be allowed to have protective equipment?

    You realize Molotov cocktails are not water balloons right? You ever seen gasoline burns? It is damn sure justice if someone throwing the improvised equivalent of a hand grenade gets killed. Hell we don't use gasoline bombs on our enemies anymore.

    Sure dude, I'm glad you fellas aren't legislators. This is good that Obama has ordered a review, and hopefully it will be reigned in or just discontinued outright. I like the MO senators bi-partisan idea with Rand Paul as well.

    Hopefully people who take away armored vehicles will be in the front lines dealing with people hurling Molotov cocktails.

    The idea that cops shouldn't have bullet proof equipment is like saying firefighters shouldn't have fireproof equipment. Same logic.

    Ps

    You want to take away the "machine guns" on top of the cars? Strap water cannons on there. But keep in mind...refusing to have a lethal option is stupid. Especially when someone is deliberately trying to murder people with Molotov cocktails.

    Um, sorry but vehicles such as these are designed to make the occupants survive roadside bombs, not molotov cocktails.

    So you don't think someone who designed a vehicle meant to deal with explosives...didn't consider FIRE?? Actually a better question:

    If hit by a Molotov, Would you rather be in that vehicle? Or a squad car? Come on.

    But more important than that: these vehicles also serve to deal with OTHER threats, like bullets. You think cops shouldn't get that?
