“We have, what, 340 million guns in this country?” “You’re not getting rid of them. They’re not going away.” - Marie Zare, speaking at CPAC

Westport Cops Seize Criminal Humvee, use now as Squad Car.


How do you keep a police budget in line? While the municipality gains an impressive cruiser in the process? Do what Westport, CT did - impound a Hummer from some bad guys, then use it as a squad car. 

I saw this beast on static display at a neighborhood block party not long ago.  Officers deployed the H2 as deterrent to rowdy behavior, no doubt; in part the car's appearance showed taxpayers how prudently the force was operating.

Exactly how the seizure went down was not revealed, and neighbors who slid in behind the wheel were more interested in the wheels than who used to own them. 

Cool Beanz, Westport.   Love that Hummer!
