I live in a town with roughly 10k population. “small town usa”. Why does my police department need an armored humvee? I can’t think of a good reason either.. yet they still have it.

As the military does not want the stuff, I always suspected this was a scam by politicians to ensure that the arms suppliers could keep turning out stuff that was made in their state or area to keep voters sweet

Let’s watch the republicans use the January 6th coup attempt by *their* supporters as evidence that the police need military-grade equipment.

Police don’t need to be a fully armed militia especially with the minimal amount of training they are required to do.

This is something that never should have happened in the first place. I can’t wait when mall security is wearing full tactical armor because they need to send the gear somewhere.
