More than 700 signatures have been gathered on an online petition that demands Michigan City give back a bullet- and bomb-proof military vehicle supplied to the police department at no cost by the U.S. military.
Ray Wolff, of LaPorte, started the petition drive believing that the Mine Resistant Ambush Protected Vehicle represents too much of a military presence in grassroots law enforcement.
“The concerns run the gamut but one of the those big reasons is kind of a concern that people have about the militarization of the police,” said Wolff, who is chairman of the Libertarian Party in LaPorte County.
