“Will law abiding citizens who love the Constitution and Rule of Law be hunted down with MRAPs?”

The Spokane Valley Police Department is facing protests over a viral video in which a Sheriff’s Deputy defended the use of an MRAP armored vehicle by saying it was needed to deal with the threat posed by “constitutionalists


The video, exclusively obtained by Infowars.com, prompted thousands of comments and a 9 minute video response from Sheriff Ozzie Knezovich in which he claimed that the video was being taken out of context.

The footage shows a Spokane Valley resident asking why police need vehicles that are designed for fighting foreign enemies abroad

“I mean, we’ve got a lot of constitutionalists and a lot of people that stockpile weapons, lots of ammunition,” one deputy says. “They have weapons here locally.”

Spokane Valley Republican Representative Matthew Shea responded to the video by asking, “Will law abiding citizens who love the Constitution and Rule of Law be hunted down with MRAPs?”
