Mine-Resistant Vehicles Coming to Get You in Kentucky

Of the military combat equipment infesting local police departments, Kentucky has relatively little compared to some states, but holy fuck did you know that Kenton County in Northern Kentucky has a fucking MINE RESISTANT VEHICLE? 

Jefferson County/Louisville, Henderson County and McCracken County/Paducah have fucking MINE RESISTANT VEHICLEs.

Franklin County, home of the capital city of Frankfort, got 1,401 assault rifles to deal with a population of 50,000 mostly sedentary, overweight and beaten-down state employees. Also four helicopters and two planes. Planes? Fuck, you can drive across the county in 20 minutes.

You know the last time Kenton County had a MINE?  Never, that's the last time Kenton County had a mine.

Never is also the last time there was a MINE in Paducah, Henderson or fuck even Louisville.

Beware, Kenton, Jefferson, Henderson and McCracken Countians.  If they have one, they will use it.

On you.

Here's the map:
State and local police departments obtain some of their military-style equipment through a free Defense Department program created in the early 1990s. While the portion of their gear that comes from the program is relatively small (most of it is paid for by the departments or through federal grants), detailed data from the Pentagon illustrates how ubiquitous such equipment has become. Highlighted counties have received guns, grenade launchers, vehicles, night vision or body armor through the program since 2006.
And here a retired Marine gives quick run-down on the various types of military equipment now being deployed against American citizens by our supposed public servants.  Also points out how deadly, counter-productive, ridiculous and stupid using them in an American city is.
