Welcome to Fault Lines, Lou. Regarding the “surround and callout” technique, I’m going to have to ask why you see justification existing for Bearcats and MRAPs in addition to heavy body armor. Is the default mentality that when you use that tactic it’s expected the party inside will respond with a RPG or machine gun? I can see justification for heavy body armor. I don’t follow with the use of military vehicles in a neighborhood.
