Florida Police Have a New Toy: “If you see my SWAT team roll up in this, it’s over, so just give up”

A Florida police department has a new toy – a U.S. military surplus battle wagon.

The six wheel, 30-ton armored Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle (or MRAP) is in “lightly used condition” and only has 5,000 miles on it. It is worth $700,000, but the department got it for $2,000. What a deal!

Fort Pierce Police Chief Sean Baldwin told WPTV that he hopes the vehicle remains parked:

“Hopefully, we’ll never need the MRAP, but knowing that it is ready to roll is comforting.”

Fort Pierce Police posted an ominous warning to citizens on their Facebook page:

“Chief Baldwin has some advice for anyone that may find themselves facing the MRAP on the wrong side of the law. ‘If you see my SWAT team roll up in this thing… it’s over, so just give up.'”

Yes, how comforting.

Guess how the department got the vehicle?

Officer Keith Holmes got it through the generosity of the National Defense Authorization Act, which allows the military to transfer excess military vehicles to law enforcement agencies (among all of the other wonderful things the NDAA allows the government to do).

Over $4.2 billion worth of property has been transferred to law enforcement since the program’s began, in the ongoing effort to militarize US police.

The St. Lucie County Sheriff’s Office helped get the vehicle painted for free, so the sides say “Police” and “Fort Pierce.”

People of Fort Pierce, you better behave!

    Three letters – RPG
    And Mr. Molotov isn’t famous for no reason, either.

    If ever used for anything other than terrorizing ordinary citizens, you fools (Chief Baldwin) might as well go ahead and baste yourselves with butter before you crawl in there.

      And don’t forget Mr Oil Based Paint, and Mr Gasofoam!

    Could it extract itself in a 20′ pit filled with sewage?

  • Andy Fife

    Hey ! I’d like a couple of those, I’ll even pay $2,001 . It would be nice for remodeling jobs.

  • Cooter Bug

    Broward County. Florida has two of these with rescue painted on them. Now you know that when they roll up on you at 4:00 a.m. that they are there to rescue you!!!

  • Rich Cream

    You’d better hope they just give up or you’ll have to get out of the damn thing anyway.

  • moovova

    That’s a big damn coffin.

  • Rick E.

    Is there ANY doubt that law enforcement considers the streets and towns a battlefield? We are the enemy on this battlefield!

    • Andy Fife

      Trading with the Enemy Act, and subsequent legislation makes all 14th amendment slave/citizens the Enemy of the USA INC corporation. DEREGISTER and be the 4th amendment FREE human being the Founding Papas envisioned.
      Do not consent to being governed by murderers.

  • Thomas Rice

    They have to get out of it eventually!
    Unless of course you use it as a roasting pan…

  • Free thinker

    It may be a nice new toy for them but wait till they start paying to maintain it. Six tires will cost more then they paid for it. And not to mention the lawsuits from using the truck as a battering ram. Swat used one in Harrisburg PA and knocked a house off it’s foundation. Not sure of the court case outcome yet.

    • tayronachan

      I was thinking about that. I have a friend who has a duce and a half, and those tires can cost. Some good footage on youtube of those trucks going through swamps.

  • Jason Vega

    why don’t you roll that up into mena aiport and stop the govt coke from coming in you traitors

  • Jay

    You’ve got to admit, it’s more protection than driving up in a Toyota pickup truck when stray bullets are flying. But it might not maneuver as well. On the other hand, it can probably cover a little more ground with rubber tires than all those tanks we keep seeing on rail cars for the Russian troops that continue to arrive.

    A Molotov cocktail will shut the engine down by starving the engine of available oxygen. Throwing eggs on the windows will blind the occupants. Shooting a 30 06 into the back will finish the job. Any questions?

  • Robert Gibson

    Thinking you are invisible; you have already lost arrogant, insecure little cops. You long ago stopped protecting the public; now you view us as the enemy. There are numerous ways to disable that MRAP; then you will be sitting ducks. Get your heads out of your asses and get on the side of freedom!

  • Cracker122049

    That sheriff is an arrogant PIG! I’ll bet he is about to piss his pants to use it to kill someone!

  • mfskinner

    I love big targets.

    Someone PLEASE make an IED and blow that thing up.

    Nazi’s fought against the sickness of:

    1. International Jew Communists
    2. International Jew Bankers

    The New World Order or Globalism is the unification of the Anti Christ Jew sickness that has been destroying Western Civilization even since pure evil won WWII.

    • Andy Fife

      huh? what has this fella’ been reading?

  • Erin Tarn

    MRAPs were designed to protect soldiers from IEDs. What the military found however is that even with the hull-like bottom, casualties and injuries could not be prevented. Food for though.

  • crazy2medic

    Where did you find the info on this thing? I know it can survive 2 155 artillery shells exploding under it, and the windshield can take a couple of 20mm cannon shells, where can I get info on the back end weakness?

  • Andy Fife

    Where is there a website with GOOD NEWS???????????????????????? How much of this crap can you take??

  • Andy Fife

    DEAREST ARROGANT PUKE SLAVE/COP: I will have to take a bonded order out on you to come clean my toilets weekly, use the MRAP to carry the disinfectant, sponge, gloves, towels, and bring the SWAT Team to mop , vacuum and scrub the floors. Put the sideshows to good use, something that gives them a sense of pride and purpose, instead of terrorizing the mind numbed populace.
    ps. I would encourage everyone reading to find out full name , dob, of officials who threaten We the people and all do a commercial lien on the pos.
