Yes, sir, this is the latest Lenco BearCat and when you see it coming, you'd better walk straight, boy. This is Keene, New Hampshire's latest piece of police equipment, bought at a price of slightly over $285,000. Doesn't every small town need a BearCat to keep those folks at the annual Pumpkin Festival (October 18, 2014) in line? Not to mention a raucous quilting bee, when those grannies have had a bit too much lemon tea.
I mean, what gives? Turns out Keene got a grant from the Department of Homeland Security, so didn't it make sense to buy a BearCat? Are these folks nuts?

Even Toronto's finest don't have anything quite this militaristic, just a heavily armoured Ford F450 with a box on the back. But check out what other big cities or municipalities are packing.......

Good for you Keene, know your priorities.
Until next time.......
