Taxpayers will foot the bill for MRAP acquisition

To the editor:

The Highway to hell is paved with “good intentions.”

The Jasper County Sheriff Office’s acquisition of a former military MRAP seems very akin to another government agency that deals with emergencies, which purchased more than a million rounds of assault gun — oops, “personal protection device” — ammunition. It’s just something else the taxpayers have to support on someone’s whim.
