As we incrementally creep closer to a police state, the Lewiston Maine Police Department organizes an intimidation campaign to show off the newest crime fighting tools.
LPD recently unveiled the 1981 M113APC armored tank and MARCbot IV robot, equipped with a Xbox controller, to an unaware and uninformed general public.
This gift, courtesy of the Obama Administration, is free to the LPD as a reallocation of military surplus. Of course we all know nothing is free in this country. And why does a town like Lewiston need an armored tank? It can’t be the crime, because in 2011 they recorded 3 murders and in 2009 they recorded zero murders.
