At first I thought it was a bit odd that police would have something like this too. Then I realized I had three of them, and they didn't seem so odd after all
I believe we have all seen in the news or other source, where someone would decide life just aint worth living anymore and go out to do something crazy then find themselves barricaded in a house somewhere. Now that sounds bad enough, right? Then the police sets up a perimeter and nobody gets in or out until the crisis is resolved. The cruisers parked along the streets, shotguns and rifles ready...and the wait begins. Too bad for you if you live in that subdivision
With a piece of equipment like this, you can pull up right next to the house and tell them how it's going to be without the exposure to that magic shot that unfortunately finds it's mark too many times.
With that said, if the police can't be trusted with a transportation means that can protect them if they are being shot at...then how can we stand by and let them carry equipment that can be used to kill someone?
Once that flag is raised, I'm sure it will only be a matter of time before we experience the solution for the problem we've identified
Anyway, thats me doing the "hot dogging"
