    Heck, no wonder ..with them retiring patrol cars with 40,000 miles due to paint peeling,etc. The law enforcement has gotten to where they think they are like the military ,and got to have new stuff all the time and are also building up their forces to suppress its citizens if the need should arise ...when will this type of spending end ? They must think the Money grows on trees and unlimited supply ....One day the balloon is going to bust ....Be ready ...
