A MRAP is mine resistant ambush protected vehicle. For some reason, the Pentagon thinks it’s a good idea to give them to every Tom, Dick and police chief out there with an itch for one.
And the Ohio State University Police Department asked for an armored vehicle to assist with “football missions.” (The Pentagon gave Ohio State an MRAP in September 2013, and school police deployed it to football games, the department told a student newspaper, so as to have a “presence.”)
I am truly amazed we haven’t seen one of these bad boys in Athens. Yet.
