You read it right.

No longer is it necessary for the police to take an arrested citizen to the station, and book em.

They can pen people up right on the spot. How neat.




Quote for 10/21/2009
God Bless the USA!

Designed for emergency containment at concerts, race tracks, rallies, sporting events, and border patrol. The Portable Detention Unit was designed with police input and suggestions. It lets you keep manpower on site and save on equipment transportation usage. You can detain until you are ready to process or release. Segregate or isolate detainees.

The 37' long trailer can be pulled by a standard pickup truck. Has 2 - 7000 lbs axles and a total weight of 11,000 lbs. Made for solid sturdy all steel construction, it can be cleaned up quickly and easily. It has 4 leveling screw jacks, electric brakes, adjustable hitch, and is DOT compliant.

Will accept government credit cards.

DOT compliant. Translation. Meant for use in the US.

Brochure
For once, I would like to see the cops spend a day in the hot summer sun in one of these.

Toilets and first aid are optional.

1.Wow- race tracks, are Nascar fans really that unruly? Good for you booze-addled rednecks, Git-r-done!
2. I'd love the lawsuit money from being beaten by another detained individual.
3. What if they used these at a circus and put it right next to the Lion cage?
4. Can you imagine some phony rockstar telling people to "Rock! but not police cage-hard!"
5. H1N1 was already incentive enough to stand around in a messy, crowded area then they keep enticing you with this.

Enough bad jokes-Good research

Yes, probably a descendant of European technology designed for holding AL Quae(i)da suspects.

The name of the company is

Spirit of America

What does a company that produces gates for the forest service,
barriers and human containment have ANYTHING to do with
the spirit of America.

I find it interesting that the government contract is tagged under the
"socio-economic" category.

Building yet another cage for the people who are citizens of the so called land of the free.

Surely this will solve all the nations problems.


SAVE TIME -
DETAIN UNTIL YOU
WANT TO PROCESS OR
RELEASE


OH GOOD! UNTIL YOU WANT TO PROCESS OR RELEASE US!

Don't get trapped like rats, people, because that is all we are to them.

Exactly. Interesting to note, the contract is listed under category 84 (1984? big brother) due to the passing of the The Local Preparedness Acquisition Act.



Dec 17, 2007: This bill passed in the House of Representatives by voice vote. A record of each representative's position was not kept.

Jun 10, 2008: This bill passed in the Senate by Unanimous Consent. A record of each representative's position was not kept.

www.govtrack.us...

No records kept?? Voice vote?
Signed in the last months of a LAME duck president.



Local Preparedness Acquisition Act - Authorizes the Administrator of General Services to provide for the use by state or local governments of federal supply schedules of the General Services Administration (GSA) for alarm and signal systems, facility management systems, firefighting and rescue equipment, law enforcement and security equipment, marine craft and related equipment, special purpose clothing, and related services (as contained in federal supply classification code group 84).

Those are animal cages because that is what we have become in this nations where we are nothing to servants to the status quo, I said lets get all the rats in Wall street and put them in those same cages and feed them pellets and pock them with sticks.

How repugnant we have let our nation become.

I just had an image of 'certain' types of detainees, maybe the sort you'd find at a punk concert? Any way if there are quite a few of them locked in that thing, and they work together in unison I reckon they could get up a good rhythm rocking it!

Maybe even tip it over on it's side... I won't be a very smart thing for the people in side but man it would look funny - and probably consume more security recources rather than save them.

lol its a upgradde, from the pattywagon.

only the cop cars are gonna be souped-up big rigs, with circus trailers on the end, playing doo doo do do do do doo doo .


if you been to some of the shows i've been too, when one music genre gets out and the other starts getting there for their seperate genre event, these things are needs, that or by using " fix-a-flat bombs".

One thing that does strike me about those is people on the out side could fling liquids and gooey whatever at the people trapped in side... They would have to do something about that, they will have a duty of care over the people in side....

Just hope you don't get put in one of their one-person cages.

That's 'Paddy Wagon'...another subtle ethnic slur that is so often under our radar. Not accusin'...simply passing it along.

Interesting. I never knew!


The word paddywagon is of American origin. The precise origin of the term is uncertain and disputed, though its use dates back to at least the beginning of the 1900s.[1] There are at least three theories as how the phrase originated.[2]

* The most prevalent theory is based on the term "Paddy" (a common Irish shortening of Patrick), which was used (sometimes as derogatory slang) to refer to Irish people.[3] Irishmen made up a large percentage of the officers of early police forces in many American cities. Thus, this theory suggests that the concentration of Irish in the police forces led to the term "paddywagon" being used to describe the vehicles driven by police.
* An alternative theory is similarly based on the term "Paddy" but states that the term arose due to the number of immigrant Irish being arrested for having consumed too much alcohol and taken away in the vehicles.[4]
* The final theory holds that the name originates from the padding used on the inside of police horse-drawn carriages to prevent injury;[5] this last is regarded by lexicographers as an example of folk etymology[citation needed].

A great number of Irish-Americans and persons of Irish descent consider this term to be an offensive ethnic epithet

All I can imagine is 50 protesters caged in one of these and a poorly thrown molotov. I imagine they would have to come up with something else if something like that happened because I can't image it ending well for those inside. That would cause an outrage. Not to mention the before mentioned problem of liquids and other thrown items...

Guess you haven't spent time at any NASCAR races....Not unruly persay, but they love to have a good time with their beer, women and races..

These are creepy, but I can see them being used just to deter the other "locals" from having to get in the cage....

Response to this thread is telling.

As long as it's someone else, and not me, it's funny. Make jokes about it.

No wonder America is in a world of excrement.

I agree... I think this is a big deal and a perfect example of the government KNOWING it can do whatever it wants when it comes to controlling it's population. This is a blatant shot at the constitution. My post was not meant to be funny, it was meant to bring up the fact that it is far too dangerous to use this kind of containment in a public area where anything could go wrong and those inside, who are not proven to be guilty of anything yet, can only sit there and let it happen to them. I doubt the cops are going make sure they're treated well.

Blehhhhh, you people, tick me off at times. If you don't do anything wrong at a large event, you don't have to worry about being in one of these cages, which is an updated version of paddy wagon's, as someone mentioned.

If you become unruly at a public event, would you prefer a limousine with a fully stocked bar?

Some people deserve to be in cages at times.

Act like a human, and you won't ever see the inside of one!
