Bucky Goes Rambo

Great site let's you track all the ammo, night vision goggles, armored vehicles, grenade launchers, aircraft, dirt bikes, M-16's and additional surplus battlefield toys the Defense Department's garage sale specialists have handed out to local Wisconsin cops and the DNR.

My personal favorite:
Juneau County, population 26,631, has a sheriff's department that acquired nearly $3 million in equipment since 2004, the most of any police force statewide.

I heard on NPR this morning that WI has acquired over $28 million in military equipment for local police.

What does a police department need with a grenade launcher? Why not artillery?
