Why in the world are we paying for a cop to cruise around in a Cadillac Escalade with big ass rims on it. Couldn't we have sold that at auction and provided more money for the city? I mean I am sure it was probably a drug seizure, but come on now. I can see a ford explorer but an Escalade! That is rediculous! I hope it was a drug seizure cause it would be upsetting to know we bought that for a cop to ride around in.

I thought that was Brandon Foulk's old vehicle. Especially after I saw where he got busted in that big operation a couple months ago.

I can't believe anyone be outraged over D.A.R.E. using a vehicle from a DRUG SEIZURE! That's ridiculous! Yes, Brandon Foulks did "provide" them with the vehicle and I think it's a great idea to use it to educate our youth about the evils of drugs and drug use.

The kids look at it like this.. If they sell drugs they can have rides like this. Some cops jus don't think about what there really doing. They are jus thinking of themselves and that's sad..

they got car from a mexican that they caught about 6 or 7 years ago and i think that it is stupid to go around to the schools and show it off to the kids that is just giving them the idea of what they can get when they grow up and sell lots of drugs

YES! It is a total waste of money, even if they got the vehicle "free" in a seizure, they could have sold it and made a little money to give to the DARE program.

If kids are being pressured to do drugs, a cadillac Escalade with the DARE logo is not going to sway them into making the right choice.

Who comes up with these things?

Once again people are on here talking that dont even know what they are saying....YES that vehicle USE to belong to Brandon BUT he sold it to somebody & about a week or two after he SOLD it the guy was pulled over & the cops seized it. Let's not get on the whole Brandon Foulks subject again. So Theres the story no need for further discussion!!

Sad they are using a vehicle that the 99.99% will never (honestly) be able to afford in their lifetime.

The message they are realing sending is that of you want to drive a vehicle like this you will have to:

1) sell drugs
2) win lottery

Sad. The police and justice system make their money off of drugs as well. Do you honestly think the judicial system wants drugs to go away? Where would the police get their income? Police say they want to end drugs but they would also cut their own money supply.

Drugs paid for that ride. That message is clear. These kids know what pays and what doesn't pay. If the true economic statistics were revealed we would find unemployment rates are as high as 20%. These kids know the American dream is nothing more than a "noble lie".

Crime pays the bills of the POLICE.

Great response! I agree 110% Thank you so much. This is giving these kids the wrong ideas. They should sell it at auction and put money toward the city and the DARE program.

MPD is the dumbest bunch of idiots i've ever encountered! They think just cuz they wear that badge that makes them special. They have this vehicle that they try to flaunt around. The only message its puttin off to kids is..."u want a nice ride, sell drugs." 99.9% of them dont make enough to even dream about having a ride that nice. Its ok tho, like i said b4, the vehicle didn't even belong to Brandon when the piggys got it. i hope MPD is having fun recruiting the next batch of drug dealers. they are too stupid to realize thats exactly what they are doing.

What do they use that vehicle for. To teach the kids to not sell drugs. I sorta kinda think there could be a few kids sitting there thinking drugs, wheels, Escalade. Gee real people what the heck - all this is for is an officer to ride around in. If DARE wants to teach kids about drugs, frigging teach them all about drugs from being on them to selling them, what they do to them and how they wreck not only their lives but everyone around them. Wonder how many kids are sitting there thinking when I grow up I'm going to sell drugs so I can drive an Escalade.
