What Tanks Do

Sunday, August 13th, 2006

car.jpgThat’s the tank used by the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office in Arizona. That’s a regular car underneath it. A mother and daughter were actually inside the car when the deputy operating the tank neglected to engage the break, and it rolled down a hill in a residential neighborhood. They fled when they saw the damn thing headed right for them.This was all part of the “charred puppy” raid Agitator.com readers should be now be fairly familiar with. More pictures of the house police set aflame here.To refresh your memory, police brought the tank and a SWAT team, fired cannisters of tear gas, set the house aflame, maliciously killed a puppy, and nearly crushed a mother and daughter. The only arrest they made in connection to the raid was for outstanding traffic tickets.When you talk about policing in war terms, outfit your police officers like soldiers, and give them military toys like tanks, this is the result.
