If you ask me, it is a little scary. The local drug rings do not justify the vehicle.

Fire departments buy all sorts of expensive high tech gadgets they hope they never have to use. Why? Because that one time they need it to save someone they have it. Same goes for the Police department. They could afford to get this piece of protective equipment, not because the need it, but just in case it is ever needed. It has a variety of uses.

It is intimidating and it can protect them and others in a time of crises. What crises? How many small towns and cities have been confronted with crazy people shooting guns? Plenty. It could be use to serve a warrant, if there was evidence the suspect might be heavily armed and have explosives. But the most important time to have one is when you need one. If the need came up to really need one and they didn't and people loss their lives because of it, people would complain, they should have bought on when the government was giving away their excess.

ONE armored vehicle is not going to change Lewisburg into a police state, nor will it ever be used to control crowds. Go to any place on earth that was using armored vehicles for riots/war/gangs or whatever, they had several of them, not just one. Get a grip people.

What if some crazy, police or city manager takes one of those army tanks or armored vehicle on a joy ride and distroys half the town just because it is availble?

Where are the police loved years ago, who would buy the children ice cream at the drug store, shake hands, wave, smile and walked the streets with the people? Never tried to be seen as over powering or imtimidating?

Another stupid oriented burbled outburst. The armored vehicle Lewisburg has could not do any more damage to a building than my SUV could. You are a moron. And if you are afraid of this, then maybe they could also take the tactical weapons and do the same, so what to do? Take away everything from the police someone else could misuse??? You are a very stupid moron.

Those days of yesterday are exactly where they are... gone. And it is all because of stupid morons like you. You destroy Topix with your absurdity. Where are the days when people used their head for something other than storing white jello?
Such Waste of Taxdollars

Does it cost lots of taxpayer money for army vehicles to be stored and maintain just so those might start if needed? Then does it take special trained operators, maintance people, special tires, parts?
Then is there the costs of practice hours of training that might be better spent on those vehicles use?

Does it seem has Lewisburg public officials, got big city ideas on a small town budget and few public officials that seem to care or know how the people's tax dollars are being wasted?

You should read the local paper article was it said something like "if that vehicle rolled through a parking lot it could do lots of damage"?

Is it just another way to expand the local police department and gain a much large Budget from the city?

Has the Lewisburg city police chief though about doing what did the Marshall County Sheriff do save the taxpayers money, by not using all the sherif department alloted budget and return the extra back too the City Budget Director?

Saving the taxpayer's lots of money!

Did you overdose on your stupid pills today? I will address this idiotic subject and your imbecilic blurbs one last time. It doesn't cost any more and maybe less than many other vehicles such as aging cars, trucks and such. Any large vehicle could do damage in a parking lot. That is most pointless inane and insane thing I have ever read.

All of your tax comments are meaningless because every city has it's critics and you are number one on the list in Marshall County. I bet your budget is a piece of mess as well. If you don't like the way things are done, go run for office. Oh, that's right, no one would vote for such an old stupid grumpy man like you. Go eat some bran and have a movement of your own. It might make you feel better.

Who made you the director or dictator on what people think or say. They have opinions too. Sorry it is not what you wanted to hear. No wonder topixs is like you said, people like you.
If you spoke like this in public nobody would listen to you. That is why you are stuck here on topixs. How do you know what will happen. You don't, just guessing.

An army Hum V and a MRA vehicle for the LPD? Waste of money unless Lewisburg goes to war with surrounding towns! They have had the Hum V for several years. How many times have they used it, so why did they need the MRA vehicle.

Keep em coming people seems America the stupid is just in defense of it no matter the outcome because it seems it is in his / her hidden agenda ... If someone where to ride by it and blows the air tanks see the MRAP has air brakes better hope someone does not move that wheel chock but I won't go into further detail of all of that and as far as the money up keep? I know it has been way more spent on that damn thing than more pressing isues and the amount is staggering which should have been spent on such as Jobs , Drug addiction programs or better yet sell it and take all the money to put all the women who have no place to live you know the halfway house near martin motors It would be enough to give each person that has no choice but to stay there a home of their own seems to me most of the people are not as convinced it is a nessisity and it is not but since when has anyone ever listened to We the People!... It was deigned for a Milatary warzone not for local police departments .....Period

Slow down... I have no problem with anyone voicing their opinion. But if it's ignorant or lacking truth and reality, I also will voice my opinion. It has nothing to do with what I want to hear.

The problem with Topix is people like me? Someone who actually researches to finds the facts? I do speak like this in public and I have many who listen and agree. Fortunately, I don't run into people who are so ignorant of the real world and too lazy to find the truth. Bob is well known to pull his opinions out of thin air and present them as if they are fact or have any amount of weight to them. He is worse than any biased news source could be. He makes mountains out of anthills. And what is worse is all the other ignorant, uneducated souls that read his posts become that much more ignorant. Is that what you are? I hope not.

Here is a fine example of ignorance. Why in the world would you think any police department only needs one armor vehicle in order to go to war? If they were concerned with war, they would buy a dozen of them. So that was an ignorant statement because it has nothing to do with war.

These vehicles have proved to be extremely helpful in saving lives many times in many cities. God help us if we ever need to use it that way. But should the need arise and people get killed or harmed, you would be the first in the same group who would complain that they had a chance to get one of these from the federal government cheap and didn't do it!

Why anyone thinks being prepared is a bad thing, blows my mind. That is like telling a Fire department not to buy an imagining camera because no one has ever died in a fire for the lack of one. Or, don't bother buying smoke/fire alarms for your house because the odds are extremely low you will ever need one. But yet I bet you have a few in your house. Wasted money!

More stupid ignorance. The MRAP (Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected) vehicle would cost $658,000, but LPD got it for, wait for it... free!(Check out "LPD has armored vehicle for SWAT team" February 28, 2014 Tribune.

So, mr. big mouth, exactly how MUCH money has been spent on this vehicle? Let's see you put up some facts instead of just shooting off your mouth.

The quote about going to war with surrounding communities was a joke you asshole. You just showed who on here is stupid thinking I was talking about a real war? LOL! Oh by the way you didn't answer my questions about how many times the Hum V has been used in the last two years and for what purpose.

Simple Question is It a necessity you are trying to throw this off topic this is not a feild sobriety test...Is it needed ? Hell no In my opinion and it seeems many others.that money could have been put to so many better uses than just trying to milatarize our Police force that is its only purpose and that absolutly cannot be denied and since it seems you need it so badly We the People need a few bazookas In case shit ever gets out of line and you sir are out of line on this forum your blatent defense for such a vehicle by no means justifies its purpose ..I got 280 bucks that says you are a Cop posting this less than a block from me as far as what it cost yes you got it free but what you have spent on the damn thing to get it into operating order is our tax dollars and I know none of you are any type of mechanics so no matter how you try to defend your doomsday device... It could be sold!!... and the money generated from its liquidation could be put to better use. Argue against that ..because that is a fact ..now I am going to let the people decide and not you and you alone
Agreed

You are right! The Sheriff turned back in alot of money and saved the taxpayers $$$$$$$$. That is what I want to see. Even if the police department got this vehicle for "free" is the maintance to keep the thing running "free"?

no the maintenace and upkeep eventually cost more than the vehicle itself that is why they are writing so many damn tickets !! lol The Local Sherrifs Humvee is totally justifiable for reaching injured people in the surrounding county and he is not posing in front of it in the local paper every few months keep that in mind for the people under his command are not a bunch of trigger happy goons just to clear that up People carry on
