Dallas County now has its bulletproof, "mine-protected" military SUV
The initial plan was to shove the vehicles, called MRAPS (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) into a warehouse and let them collect dust. That changed when someone decided that, having served so admirably overseas, it would be only just to bring the MRAPs stateside and deploy them in the domestic war on crime.
And so, for the past couple of months, news reports have been popping up announcing that places like Murfreesboro, Tennessee and Ohio State University have been receiving their very own military-grade armored SUVs.

Just what was required, $250,000 vehicles that will rarely if ever be used. And even if they are used, it will be against the people who paid for them. Lmfao got to love the yankee logic. What's next? Get the people to sign away their rights a bit at a time? Oh wait, you already did that...
