The Department of Homeland Security (through the U.S. Army Forces Command) recently retrofitted 2,717 of these Mine Resistant Armor Protected (MRAP) vehicles for service on the streets of the United States. The gun ports make this a street sweeper to be used against the citizenry of the United States.

The other major purchase made by DHS was 1.6 billion rounds of ammunition. That's five bullets for each man, woman and child in the United States

The next purchase will probably be large scoops as seen in the movie Soylent Green.

Here in Framingham, we have more primitive equipment due to budgeting constraints.

Regretably there is no one in Town Meeting who has the gumption or chutzpah to demand information from Steven B. Carl as to how many high capacity firearms and automatic weapons Framingham's Blue Mafia buys with forfeiture monies.

Lastly, how much ammunition does the Blue Mafia purchase on an annual basis?

Someone correct me if I am wrong, but I believe that in the past 20 years, more people have been shot and killed in Framingham by police than by other gunmen.

For the record, Framingham has 68,000 residents, including men, women and children.
