Yeah, not to get this moved to the political forum but it seems a touch overboard for community policing unless it's a singular SWAT type thingMakes you wonder eh? I think the Local departments were training, the guys I saw were in full multicam gear.

That aside, those things are amazing. I'm not in a part of the military that has anything to do with them, but a pal took me for a spin in one at Eglin AFB and I was impressed - closing the passenger door was akin to shutting a vault.
Maybe it’s so they can show it off at the county fairNo I agree with everything you said. They are over the top for even SWAT. They are too expensive for departments to have, especially when they could have bearcats for a 1/10th of the cost and serve SWAT all the protection needed. Ours rolls out on calls less than a dozen times a year including training.
And yes, I think they are a great machine for our troops! The design is impressive and they move out fast for their size and weight!
Lenco does.Same tow mirrors as my Silverado, who makes those?
Right. Ridiculous for police use.Good lord that's the weight of a half-fueled F-35 with no munitions. Who tows them out when they park on the grass shoulder?
We have one of those here for SWAT or SERT. I remember it showed up at a bar fight one night when I was a younger man. Police in riot gear breaking up a fight at a big cowboy bar was fun to watch. This bar was like 60k sq ft and had a bull arena inside it. They used to do dance music for an hour, and then rodeo. Back and forth all night. Fun place.
