It isn't like a tank or a jet, those aren't personnel movers, they are weapons. It's an armored personnel carrier, it's primary purpose is to protect people. Do shoot outs happen? Would police be safe in this truck?
What difference does it make if it was on a battle field? It could do the exact same thing here right?
Several sheriff depts have the MRAP, they got them for $2,500 as an open ended lease. Besides transporting the jack booted thugs CONs love to fear, they will come in very handy in severe weather and negotiating obstacles a patrol cruiser can't.
Blowing weed is a new term for toking a doob, ya gotta keep up. Coke is now 'soft', or white girl in some parts, hardly anyone who doesn't wear double knit suits calls coke 'blow'...

If it has already happened in Mexico, it will happen eventually in the US. Being prepared for it doesn't mean people don't support the troops. It means they are getting ready for a very real possibility.Arturo Guzmán Decena (a.k.a. Z-1) (13 January 1976 − 21 November 2002) was a Mexican Army Special Forces soldier who, in 1997, defected to the Gulf Cartel, where he founded and commanded Los Zetas, the mercenary gang at the service of the cartel's drug lord, Osiel Cárdenas Guillén.

At $2,500 a copy they are not expensive to acquire, to operate is another consideration but until i see them doing a one for one replacement of the patrol units I'd say it will not be burdensome for the tax payers.
Most depts have a single copy, multiple tasks like being able to fight severe weather and high mobility to crawl into tornado devastated areas to be the first on the ground.
I don't see the problem with an enhanced vehicle in a Local PD/sheriff's dept. Any grunt knows a single vehicle is target practice...
The red underlined bit is what you altered.in every conceivable circumstance? well if we are going off of that then maybe cops should have tanks and fighter planes. Maybe even nukes. I mean you never knowright
Police aren't the ones that purchase that equipment. First, you don't need a truck to kick in doors, second police sometimes have to do just that.
What is the deal with you and this truck? Who cares?
