Sheriff's new vehicle is ready for risks

The Livingston County Sheriff’s Department has a new tool in its arsenal for use during high-risk situations, such as one involving a barricaded gunman.

The department acquired a Mine-Resistant Ambush-Protected, or MRAP, vehicle for its tactical team through the military’s Defense Reutilization and Marketing Office, which is managed by the Defense Logistics Agency. The office takes military equipment that is no longer usable and “demilitarizes” it, making it available to law enforcement agencies nationwide.

“As far as we know, we’re the first law enforcement agency in the United States to get the MRAP,” Detective Lt. Scott Domine explained. “It was allocated through Fort Bragg in North Carolina.
It's the "BILL OF RIGHTS" not the bill of "needs"
Lot of mines in Livingston county?

Regardless, it still looks flammable to me!

I'm sure the taxpayers will appreciate three miles per gallon and the tens of thousands of dollars in maintenance they will cost.
tolerance for failure meter... LOW
If there is any reason for any law enforcement to have a machine like that in the US, then anyone asking why we "need" these big scary assault weapons, needs slapped across the face.
This will be the best security for maintaining our liberties. A nation of well-informed men who have been taught to know and prize the rights which God has given them cannot be enslaved. It is in the religion of ignorance that tyranny begins. -Ben Franklin
At least they're buying American now. Maricopa County Sheriffs Department has a Soviet APC (BRDM-2 I believe) in their inventory. They've had it for years.

The sheriff can hang out with this FBI vehicle I saw in Philly last week.

Hell, I'd drive an MRAP to work every day if I could get one! LOL! (Humvee would be fine also!)
A Reading from the Book of Armaments, Chapter 4, Verses 16 to 20:

Then did he raise on high the Holy Hand Grenade of Antioch, saying, "Bless this, O Lord, that with it thou mayst blow thine enemies to tiny bits, in thy mercy." And the people did rejoice and did feast upon the lambs and toads and tree-sloths and fruit-bats and orangutans and breakfast cereals ... Now did the Lord say, "First thou pullest the Holy Pin. Then thou must count to three. Three shall be the number of the counting and the number of the counting shall be three. Four shalt thou not count, neither shalt thou count two, excepting that thou then proceedeth to three. Five is right out. Once the number three, being the number of the counting, be reached, then lobbest thou the Holy Hand Grenade in the direction of thine foe, who, being naughty in my sight, shall snuff it."
i've heard you can get 5ton 6x6s for less than 4k these days.
the fabrication doesn't stop in the shop, that's what the field guys are for.
