I personally think things are beginning to come to a head. The news just get scarier and scarier I personally think we are on the brink of a major event of some sort what say you

Got a link? Since the lamestream media doesn't even know the difference between a semi automatic AR and a "machine gun" I'm curious as to what they consider a "tank" to be.

The story doesn't show the vehicles. They look a lot more like APCs then tanks but in the vein of the modern civilian AR15 being called an assault rifle they are probably tanks to the general public.

When Modesto police and Stanislaus county recently lost a deputy to a lone gun man they surrounded in a home they had 4 of these vehicles present, mind you all 4 were different. One was Modesto, one was the sheriffs and the other two neighboring smaller cities. They had a helicopter and well over a 100 men in full battle gear. The county sheriff I get was upset over losing a veteran deputy, but he claimed on TV he no longer had enough resources to protect the community. That is how bureaucrats speak.

The little police department I have here also got one. I wonder if the government is selling them at a great discount to local agencies as surplus? There is no reason why a small department of 8 police officers would need a MRAP but they got one sitting in front of the station.

I think a chunk of this will be that 'Federal' funds are available to get one so everyone will be jumping on the bandwagon just because its available.

My county had to get rid of it's SWAT team because of no funds. I don't think there will be any military vehicles here any time soon. Couldn't afford the fuel even if the vehicles were free.
I love small town America.
