  1. Half these states have declared sovereignty and are getting these to fight for the people and not the government. A lot of police dept, including state police, have said they will not comply with unconstitutional commands. My local police dept. just got one.

  2. They have zero chance of enforcing mass martial law with only one or two armored vehicles per town.   It takes battalions to hold a city, and the biggest city departments getting these are only getting three or four.   They would barely be able to hold city hall against a motivated revolution.

  3. I think it is better than scrapping those vehicles and it is cool to put a few in circulation in a local community.   I mean, lets face it, if SHTF, we will be ending up with a few.   The other DOD stuff they give to Law Enforcement agencies also tends to end up on the market too.   Too bad they scrapped most of the M151 Jeeps and most Humvees are either thrashed or scrapped.

  4. I'll take one…..I can plant my garden in it…..gas mileage is an issue so It could just be for decoration…you know around the house….it would look lovely

  5. Many of those vehicles will be taken away from the local cops within the first 24-48 hours of SHTF! I wonder what kind of mileage they get? TNX for the video!

  6. It was bad enough giving them Bearcats but these MRAPs are way over the top. They are so huge they require a higher clearance than most parking garages and even their own home base garage. In addition, the maintenance cost is quite hefty. Now, exactly what are our police using these for? Well if we don't have a civil war my guess is a bunch of yahoos will use them to go deer hunting.
