The BearCat stands about 12 feet tall, weighs about 17,000 pounds and can carry 10 officers.

The $201,000 vehicle was funded through a federal grant funneled through the Northwest Pennsylvania Emergency Response Group, a multiagency, regional group dedicated to improving public safety, reports Erica Erwin of the Erie Times News.

I suppose it will come in handy during Lake Effect snow.

12 feet tall????!!!!! I guess the SWAT officers are all 9 foot tall then since the top of the vehicle appears to be approx. 2-3 feet above their heads. No ladder platform visible on top either. Another shining example of factual reporting by the "always" reliable media.
