    You're right, and I was being flippant. It is too extreme for suburban use.

    In Sydney they can use them for the regular blitz on CBD pedestrians.

    It's been here for over two years now and I can't recall a single incident in which it has been used.

    More than likely it is not for "rescue" operations at all apart from "rescuing Police" that is, but was put in place for G20 to make sure all the dignitary's who will be in town feel looked after.

    Let's all say thanks for the drug war that has led to a plague of such a filthy life destroying substance.

    As for the weaponised vehicle for police: If you build it they will come. This is a hammer that will find a nail.

    Joh will never be dead while Campbell lives.

    OMG...I never thought I would be a protester under attack by an APC...

    With the Bail in and the TPP on the agenda
    at the G20, TPTB are taking no prisoners.

    Down with CNN (CAMPBELL NEWMAN NOW).

    IS THE THIRD REICH DEAD?
