    but yeah, hyperbole is the point.  No major reforms ever got made without it.  Language changes and can be changed.  Witness the change in definition of Waterboarding from "torture" to "enhanced interrogation techniques."  I just don't see how calling these things "police armored vehicles" is going to prevent people from being run over by them, quite the opposite.  Tank= military equiment= bad for police to have them.  Police armored vehicles= stuff like police cars= sure, they should have those.  

    I support Barack Obama, Occupy Wall Street and having a Happy Holidays!
