  •  There's an Abbot here in AZ. (2+ / 0-)

    The extremely dubious and downright despicable Sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio, bought one several years ago as a hazardous entry vehicle for his SWAT team.

    They last used it in the public eye as a raid vehicle, breaking down the fences at an alleged cockfighting location. No such luck, nothing illegal was going on, and the lawsuit is pending.

    Of course, most people call it a "tank," but some of us know better.

    If you don't know Joe Arpaio by know, just google him. He makes the Sheriff of Nottingham look like an amateur mall cop...

    And yeah, I know tarantulas don't really act like that at all, so no snarking, this is the internet damnit!

      •  Ah, yes, he of the overblown reputation. (1+ / 0-)

        He was there at that particular raid, with a film crew no less. I believe he may even be named in the suit. Couldn't happen to a nicer fellow... /snark off!

        I'm sorry you know Joe - it's unfortunate that his reputation has gone as far as Connecticut. As far as I'm concerned, he shouldn't have one at all, having retired in an alternate universe decades ago, and never becoming sheriff.

        And yeah, I know tarantulas don't really act like that at all, so no snarking, this is the internet damnit!
