Don’t create a military mind-set

By From page A4 | August 26, 2014

The City Council should have our Police Department return the MRAP to the military or sell it. Don’t waste any money in training our officers how to drive and use it. The odds of this vehicle ever being of used are so slim that it won’t be worth all the additional costs and training time.

And just having such a vehicle creates a military mind-set among the officers who use it. We need community policing, not SWAT teams endangering the public with military-type operations using military-grade weapons and armored vehicles.
