Quick shoutout to @Black_Samson‌ I couldn't find his older thread on this exact topic of the militarization of police and specifically the use of military vehicle on America streets.

So I was just watching CNN coverage on Ferguson and to my very shockingly surprise I spotted a Bearcat. Now all you folks who haven't served might ask what exactly is a Bearcat. Simple its a armored military vehicle that can withstand small arms fire, IEDS, and potential RPG fire and usually mounted with a 50. cal. So What exactly is it doing roaming America streets? The better question is why is it acceptable to drive around when their is no clear threat present. Also should note that they currently are in complete tactical gear full on camo.

Military version

    I don't agree. Because best believe I'm sure if they can mount that 50. Ca back on they would and nothing short of a few rugs is knocking that off the road if the retreat into it. There definitely needs to be some kind of change. It's not right having the feeling of being occupied in your own home by your own government at work.

    I think the reason people weren't believing you at first was because they just haven't seen any picture proof even though it's been well documented that the dod and pentagon were selling off equipment they weren't using anymore

    Imagine what NYPD and Chicago PD might have.
