Pa. Police Department Backs off Military Vehicle Plan

March 17, 2015

The Moorestown (Pa.) Police Department has decided against acquiring a military vehicle from the federal surplus program following resistance from its residents.

The agency had a deal in place to take delivery of a Navistar MaxxPro Dash through the U.S. Department of Defense's 1033 program, reports The Inquirer.

"We're not looking to militarize the police," Lt. Lee Lieber told the media outlet. The acquisition had the unanimous support of the town council.

    I'm glad to see they decided not to get the military equipment . But this may only be short term till the winds change due to the recent police shootings and abuses nation wide . Local cops don't need military equipment and military track vehicles . Law enforcement has become more hostile to the American public and are taught to treat citizens as criminals until you can prove different . Not that they don't have crooks and bad people out there .But in general are more hostile to the American citizens and if you disagree or don't comply to every command you are treated and look upon as a trouble maker . We/ YOU are lossing our rights as American citizens . Please stand up for your rights and become read in your rights as a citizen and 4 and 5 Amendments Rights. Knowledge is Power !
