You will never find a more wretch hive of scum and villainy. We must be cautious.

Are you sure? That's one angry looking gazebo.

Oznog: I suppose, if he stood there with his gun making it obvious he was the shooter, and you can the second guy in the popup turret, you could try to run him down WHILE shooting him, but it's wholly unnecessary. He was walking around on foot. Just shoot him with a handgun.


I can tell you don't have any real-life experience in law enforcement. This vehicle isn't meant to be used that way. The way it works is that the SWAT commander, standing in the turret, will be driven closer so that he can hit the suspect with his sword.

silly season: Ed Finnerty: They're really going to freak out about the battleship.

In a town without access to an ocean? Nah.


It's just that type of defeatist thinking that gets cops killed. Keene NEEDS a battleship to keep cops safe. Why do you want cops to die?

Wait a minute, wait a minute. What have we here, gentlemen? The police have themselves an RV.

j0ndas: AN APC IS NOT AN OFFENSIVE WEAPON. It only protects the police while they're getting from point A to point B. Now, as to whether there are enough situations where one would be useful in that particular city - that I don't know. Depends on the number of gangs and riots.


Between 1753 and 2012, no Keene law enforcement officers have died in the line of duty. It would seem that whatever they've been doing to protect themselves while getting from point A to point B for the past 258 years has been working just fine.

Bawdy George: FTFA: "When you see some Palestinian terrorist causing problems in Jerusalem, what do you usually see next? You see a tank with a cannon show up outside the guy's house, and the tank blows the house to smithereens. When a Lenco Bearcat shows up at a crime scene where a suicidal killer is holding hostages, it doesn't show up with a cannon. It shows up with a negotiator."

That's some Palin-level reasoning right there.


Who is their negotiator, Jabba the Hut? Last time I checked, a small sedan will move most negotiators just fine.

"Keene residents opposed to the Bearcat point to a video Lenco uses to market the vehicle to police departments. The video doesn't stress negotiation, but shows the vehicle being used aggressively. The video viewpoint is similar to that of a shooter role-playing game, set to the AC/DC song "Thunderstruck." Cops dressed in camouflage tote assault weapons, pile in and out of the vehicle, and take aim at targets from around and behind the vehicle. They attach a battering ram to the front of the vehicle, break through the front door of a house, then inject tear gas. The Keene city council barred Clark from showing the video at the February committee meeting, and LENCO has since removed the video from publicly-accessible pages of its website."

"That video is totally irrelevant," Massery said. "We used some Hollywood effects and slick marketing to promote our product. So what?"

Oznog: Not just that the shooting occurred before police showed up, but that there's little conceivable purpose FOR an armored vehicle limited to roads and flat areas. I mean, it's not like you're gonna go to Columbine and drive it THROUGH the school. At VT, the guy was outside, but it's just unlikely you're gonna do much driving around him that you couldn't do on foot.

I suppose, if he stood there with his gun making it obvious he was the shooter, and you can the second guy in the popup turret, you could try to run him down WHILE shooting him, but it's wholly unnecessary. He was walking around on foot. Just shoot him with a handgun.


My best guess is that there's maybe a top-secret special feature that allows them to go back in time and run over the shooter before they enter the building.

Mock26: "It promotes violence," Mastrogiovanni said. "We should promote more human interaction rather than militarize. I refuse to use money for something this unnecessary when so many people in our community are in need."

Not your money, Mastrogiovanni. The money for the purchase is coming from a federal grant.


Hey, asshole, that's MY money, and I live in Oregon!

Why not go for a bulletproof, missile-firing machine-gunning supersonic supercopter?
