I'm not sure how the funding works in this case, but where I'm from, if a police department, fire department or whatever gets funding and doesn't use it, they lose all future funding from that source. It doesn't matter if they actually NEED it or not. They are free to use it on whatever they want, no matter how useless, as long as it can be said to benefit the department. If this is the case, I think this dude just wants a very expensive, new toy that just so happens to be available on the governments dime. If so, he'll be wanting to play with it at any given opportunity and that could get ugly real fast. I'm sure it had absolutely nothing to do with the good of the people, safety or whatever. Just a high dollar toy to use and abuse.edit on 2/16/2012 by gemineye because: (no reason given)
