MRAPs – the “War on Terror” Brought to Your Community

Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) vehicles manufactured for use in Iraq and Afghanistan at a cost of half a million dollars or more, are now being distributed to police outfits across the united states under the guise of the misnamed ‘war on terrorism.’ Just who are the terrorists?

On Saturday, Nov. 09th, Pete and Garret, on the road with the Police Accountability Tour, joined some of the good folks involved with NW Indiana Cop Block and stopped by the Merrillville police outfit to inquire about the need for a 32,000-lb. military vehicle in the community.
