Armored vehicles for Indiana police

Im fine with it. A lot of these vehicles are coming back from overseas and are being repurposed and sold for very little to law enforcement. Why should Indiana miss out. These days fire trucks cost upwards of a hundred thousand dollars, so why shouldnt we take advantage of surplus vehicles we already paid for with our tax dollars. This business of screaming that law enforcement is militarizing to quash the masses of grassroots freedom fighters that are rising up against an evil overlord government is just bull. Our cops arent tools of an evil state tamping down noble civil unrest, and people who think that is what this is about are reading too much Infowars. But our local police do get fired upon point blank and I think they deserve all the protection we can afford. The worst that could happen is that our SWAT teams could go a little overboard busting in drug house doors, but the Chief should absolutely reign in the allowable uses for the vehicles and restrict them. With that said, we have huge events here in Indianapolis like the 500 and the SuperBowl and some really large conventions that could be locations for terrorist activity some day. Having some armored vehicles to protect ourselves and our citizens sounds prudent. And these vehicles come at a very good price.

I have lived in this State a long time. My parents and my grandparents and my great grandparents were born here. And most of the policemen and women in Indianapolis come from good, strong Indiana families with excellent values and level heads. This popular meme going around that all our cops view Hoosiers as criminals involved in social unrest needing to be arrested and controlled is just nonsense. These are fine young men and women in the force, most of whom graduated from Indiana universities and colleges, many of whom served in our military, who take vows to serve and protect our Indiana citizens. They are not Iraqis, East German Stasi, or federal government operatives out to crush our tea party and subdue returning war veterans. I just dont know where all the conspiracy theories come from these days, but most of them are absolutely ridiculous. We have acquired a few surplus war vehicles to use here in Indiana. People who want to turn that into the militarization of police are not really connecting with reality. There are medications to control paranoia.
