christinax4 Posted May 16, 2010 Report Share Posted May 16, 2010 so i am driving to a wedding earlier today, and we drive by the oakland county sheriff's department in Rochester Hills. There is a TANK parked in their employee parking lot, the gated one. Not an old tank, like you would see at a war memorial, but a shiny new black tank that almost looks like a hummer/tank/transformer combo...with a big white start on it...and one of the passengers in my car says EVERY POLICE DEPARTMENT HAS ONE, in case there is a "situation"...really?? is this true? what kind of "situation" could a tank warrant in Rochester? Or Troy? Do we have drones in Rochester Hills, too? In case Bin Laden is hiding out at the Farmer's Market? I laughed for like 10 minutes straight. And all this after i am reading today about how poor the county is... Wonder how much it costs to maintain a tank. I would imagine that it can't sit undisturbed til the "situation" its waiting for comes along...it probably needs diagnostics, maintainence, artillary replacement, oil changes, washing and waxing, i dunno...how crazy and wasteful. Can anyone here give me a good reason why my police department needs a tank? Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
