This has got to be a joke..... this thing looks ridiculous. Why don't we just start arming swat teams with M-1's?

That is why we are at the top of the food chain.

imagine the suspects that would probably just give up when they see that approaching them.

This is the product of a slow economy... they have to sell forklifts somewhere. It has some practical use maybe.. imagine ripping the roof off a house... how fun.

This has been around for at least five - six years. As far as arming tactical teams with armored vehicles it is very practical. To counter your extreme point about a tank. A tank is by nature an offensive weapon. This is a defensive tool. Nothing was shown that could be perceived as a weapon. Any citizen can get there hand on a rifle. Almost any rifle will pass through soft body armor and is by its very nature more accurate.
If there is a reason to believe that a suspect has a rifle or even in a pistol, why would you not want to give the advantage to the people charged in bringing that person to justice?

Its practical use is extensive. All you have to be is a person that goes up against armed people to understand that it is not a toy.
