New Orleans Cops Get More Guns

Email Print

People of the Crescent City, rejoice! Your government has bought “more than $1 million in new armament and other equipment, largely for use by the SWAT squad in emergency and riot situations, including a fully equipped mobile command post, two armored cars and modern assault rifle.” Are they going to war? These days, they are indeed and the enemy is you.

But wait, there’s more. The money will pay for 600 vests and armored cars that will “provide cover to officers in SWAT situations and help them safely evacuate citizens from dangerous situations.” I bet these will come in handy when raiding houses and killing people for being entrepreneurial.

Check out the happy faces. They are so eager to use their new rifles!
