You laugh, but our cops actually have machine guns and APCs.


_-REDACTED-_-

This statement genuinely concerns me


lets_eat_people

It's kind of a necessity in some places such as Mexico and South Africa nowadays.


Tanjung_Piai

It does not for me. God I swear if there is any funny instance of terrorist doing fucky wucky in bumfuck nowhere in my country.


Diridibindy

Ah yes. Terrorists are famously stopped by cops all the time mhm


Atlhou

Didn't Timothy McVey get caught speeding?


Diridibindy

**after** the attack


Atlhou

Was he a terrorist Before?


Diridibindy

Yes


gingerfreddy

Then you have the army? Police dont need heavy weaponry outside places like Ukraine or rural Mexico


Tanjung_Piai

I mean, other than protection and protest situations, they dont use APCs.


gingerfreddy

Even using APCs at protests is a tiny bit concerning


ramjam31

I doubt they actually have machine guns, more likely select fire rifles, semi/full auto. And those are usually issued to SWAT or equivalent not standard patrol, along with the APC. If a guy has a gun and is holed up in a house, you don’t want to drive up to it in a standard police car.


LJ_Wanderer

No several police forces have belt feed machine guns. They haven't been brought out in decades. Starting back in the gangster/prohibition era of the 1920s and the Riots of the late 60s, some departments added the hardware.


ramjam31

Ahh that makes much more sense. Yeah they had some pretty serious firepower. I took the comment to mean LAPD SWAT had 240Bs in the back of their bearcats.


firemansam51

I mean, the Texas DPS SRTs have 240s on their boats. One of my coolest experiences with police is one of those guys letting me hold his 249.


MorpH2k

I can actually kind of see the point of that on a boat though, especially for a special response team where they will mostly face armed suspects. Sure, a 240 is a bit overkill in most situations but it's effective of they need to lay down some serious firepower.


Amistrophy

Wait you mean Tx Ranger SRT or does DPS have another SRT unit? Cuz iirc Ranger SRT is pretty damn high up there.


firemansam51

Rangers SRT.


atomlc_sushi

That seems so unsafe, please tell me he actually knew you and knew you weren’t gonna spray him down😭


firemansam51

It was at an open house, it was unloaded, and I'm quite knowledgeable about firearms.


atomlc_sushi

That makes a bit more sense but in all fairness it really doesn’t matter if you’re knowledgeable you could still be insane

Dude I don’t know anything about you I can’t just guess that you work for the federal government it was a joke lol


LJ_Wanderer

More like old M1919s back in the armory.


n00bca1e99

Where I live the police can call on the National Guard, who have heavy machine guns, APCs, and tanks. Biggest police unit we have is an older surplus APC that is used for SWAT things.


LJ_Wanderer

In the US our police e need to contact the state governor to get National Guard assistance. Since that's political and red tape, some have their own hardware. Silly really as they don't train on it so it's effectively useless.


n00bca1e99

I think that’s the case here too but the governor has always signed off of those requests so far as I know. Maybe they have some agreement where they can borrow NG if they pay or something.


jab116

Dallas SWAT blew up a suspect with plastic explosives attached to a bomb robot... They also killed a dude with a M107 .50 cal using armor piercing ammo when they shot him through the armor plated van he was holed up in


captain_craptain

Select fire and full auto are machine guns, by definition.

Jeez, you'd think this would be the US

Weren't M2 used to be aircraft gun as well? This is probably taken from a right wing of a fighter.

British police are already tyrannical enough pls don’t give them anymore ideas.


KingoftheOrdovices

You're actually delusional if you think the British police are anything close to 'tyrannical'. Jesus Christ.


psych_anon

You can get arrested for making jokes online in the UK. LMAO


collinsl02

That's not the police being tyrannical, that's the government. The police enforce the laws the government make.


idecentminecrafter

As if groups such as the FBI won’t put you on a watchlist for making jokes of a similar nature


psych_anon

Does that make any of it ok clown?


idecentminecrafter

I didn’t say it did, I’m just saying you’re delusional if you act like the UK police are even somewhat tyrannical, especially when the police in other countries are essentially given the right to shoot whoever they deem threatening


psych_anon

You can get arrested for typing words on a phone in the UK. Not tyrannical? LMAO

I believe you mean the MBT of the Royal Army


Small_Tank

Heads up, it hasn't been the Royal Army since the English Civil War. While the Royal Navy and Royal Airforce are still referred to as "Royal", the Army is now just the "British Army".


Infoneau

Indeed. Worth noting that the 'Royal' title is given to regiments on an individual basis (e.g. The Royal Anglian Regiment)


collinsl02

That's because the British Army isn't a single force, it's a confederation of individual Regiments with their own customs and history working together to the same end. Hence all the different uniforms, mess traditions, band types, and regimental customs etc.


Advanced_Egg3506

Fiddlywiffers

Soon they’ll get the 20MMs like we have in America


EngineerGaming420-3

I'm an American so I instantly recognized that M2 Browning. Jeez, I thought British police weren't allowed to use guns unless under special circumstances. Was this made for use during a riot or something? It looks vaguely like something that would be used for a riot, most likely with rubber .50bmg rounds.


JarlGearth

>Was this made for use during a riot or something? It's a shitpost, police here don't use anything like that. Not even baton rounds or CS gas projectiles are used on the mainland (Northern Ireland is an exception) let alone .50 cals lol


ElGabrielo

wait you dont even got batons and cs gas?


JarlGearth

Police definitely have batons, not baton ROUNDS as in plastic bullets, they also have PAVA spray but no tear gas grenades


YungRabz

We definitely have baton rounds in the UK...


JarlGearth

Allowed for riot control outside of NI though? Fair enough if I'm wrong but I thought it was a special emergency act thing that let the PSNI/Army use them over there as opposed to mainland UK?


YungRabz

They are technically allowed for riots on the mainland but they're very much not common, mostly they're used for armed policing.


JarlGearth

The less-lethal armed policing use never occurred to me but makes perfect sense


YungRabz

Yeah, infinitely more preferable than a bullet, and longer ranged than TASER or PAVA. TBH I think they should be in the boot of every police car.


EngineerGaming420-3

Oh


pinghat20

Oh no, they’ve got a crumpet gun!
