They have these setup in the Busch Gardens parking lot in Tampa, Florida. The unit itself is not armed, but the officers inside surely are. The windows are heavily tinted so it is hard to see inside of them when they're closed, but you know.
I am not sure how I feel about them being deployed because as with anything, the government likes to take an inch, and ends up with a mile. However, there are a lot of crimes that go without prosecution in such large parking lots. I remember seeing on the news about a woman who was raped in either a Wal-Mart, or Publix lot... I mean they have cameras, but how else are you going to enforce security?
All in the name of safety once again leaving me feeling even more insecure than before. Next thing you know they'll be issuing citations to driver's motor vehicles while they're inside shopping for various things.
