Actually, this is gonna be an important upgrade for all the people, and especially the police, fire and rescue guys.....technology moves along at such a fast pace.....anything that speeds response times saves lives.....helps catch the bad guys better.....if there is some leftover, i might suggest a backhoe and a big field, that's another way to clean up crime....LOL....sound like a liberal now?
