Liberty and Freedom
Perhaps they'd like to purchase more TRU (Tactical Response Unit vehicles) to keep up with the FED's like the one they were displaying in the Blossomtime Parade. People around me at the parade were shouting "How much did that cost?" and "When would you ever need that?" I said to them "You don't really want to know".
Actually Homeland Security money ( Fed created) paid for most of the $255,000.00 and we paid about 55K, but thats not the point. We have 2 other ones already an M-113 tracked vehicle and a Peacemaker, both used by other world armies, but apparently not good enough for Berrien county. The militarization of local police forces has become widely accepted.
