Hope for the safety of those LEOs and surrounding residents. Just look what sold on eBay last week. Not to difficult to make the connection here. Didn't know that SWAT armored vehicles could be sold to the public. But I guess if you can purchase military equipment too, this is not a stretch.
BTW - the van sale was on Twitter well before the traditional media.

On the upside its not all that hard to disable with .50 (as their SWAT team appears to have done). Downside is they can't then go to the next step which is putting a thermite grenade on the van.

Armored vehicles are great, till they catch on fire. Then they are just traps.

Exactly what Ray said. To add one point, where there is a will there is a way. The politicians can ban armored vehicle transfers too but if somebody wants one they will make-steal-improvise one. A nut is a nut is a nut. You can't change that.
