Over the weekend St Louis Police shot and killed 17 year old Michael Brown who was unarmed in the city of Ferguson, a suburb of St Louis. People took to the streets and began rioting in protest.
The Bearcat is a bullet proof medical vehicle used to get wounded soldiers off the battle field.
This should come as no surprise as local police have been acquiring all sorts of military equipment.
A Wisconsin Sheriff even purchased a tank instead of upgrading out of date guns.
Do military vehicles escalate the situation? How do these keep citizens safe?
This will handicap the media and journalists in reporting this event in real time.
