FMPD has an Armored Vehicle, and Holy Crap it’s Huge

FMPD’s New Armored Vehicle, and MRAP

Fort Myers police have obtained a Mine Resistant Ambush Protection (MRAP) vehicle for use by the department. That’s great, you know, for all the mine attacks in the city…

The good news is, it was obtained through Federal Program to transfer old military equipment to police departments, and they are paying “next to nothing” for it. Sounds like a win for the city! And it will look great at parades.

Here’s another photo from Twitter, to get an idea of the immensity of this vehicle…

Also, it looks like a friggin’ tank!

(Correction, AMBUSH, not armored, protection)
