Atlanta or Iraq?!?!
Atlanta Police Introduce Bearcat Armored Truck To Help Fight Crime
Police are using an armored vehicle normally used by SWAT teams to try to put an end to a series of burglaries and home invasions in a south Fulton County neighborhood.
Police tell WSB-TV the vehicle, called the Bearcat, has thermal imaging technology to help them see in the dark. Fulton County police Capt. Wade Yates says that could help in a foot chase.
Last week, a woman was shot multiple times during a break-in in the area. Police say the burglars fled in a stolen car and were able to escape when they jumped out and ran into some woods.
Police say the armored car is also meant to reassure residents. Officers are also longer hours and more patrol shifts to increase police presence in the area.
Is Atlanta’s crime problem THAT bad where it requires a war vehicle like this?!
Fulton County police are patrolling the streets near Estonian Drive in an armored vehicle that looks like something you’d see during war, said south Fulton County resident John Hunter.
“It’s a bit much. It’s not Afghanistan,” Hunter said.
It’s not, but according to the cops…
It was last week when a woman was shot multiple times after two invaders broke into her home on Estonian Drive.
Police tried to stop the burglars as they drove away in a stolen car just after midnight, but they jumped out and ran into some woods and got away.
Officers said the Bearcat, as it’s named, is equipped with thermal imaging to help them see in the dark.
“In the event we get into another foot pursuit with these suspects the probability of us catching them is greatly increased,” Fulton County police Capt. Wade Yates said.
Seems like they could use a GANG of these in Chicago!
