I'm pretty neutral on the idea of police using military type vehicles. I do think they put forward a bad image and I get why it bothers some. I think
they should be used only when absolutely needed in cases like you suggest.
One thing that bothers me the most is they now seem to be too controlled and due to the insanity of late, they are scared to do what they need to do,
for fear of being labeled for political reasons not based in reality. A rabid partisan city government should not call the shots when law enforcement
professionals should be making the decisions.
I think when political fears caused them to allow the Occupy Movement to openly break the law and infringe on innocent citizens Rights, it started a
very bad trend of politics being more important than peoples safety and security in their possessions. That was a dark time for us as a society and it
was backed by ill meaning, dishonest politicians to garner a few more votes from the fringe.
