Police of Arizona decided to equip patrol motorcycles with rifles AR-15

 

The view of motorcycles is certainly brutal, which means there is some panic among the locals. After all, one thing is when the assault rifles are in the trunk of a police car, and it’s quite another when they are mounted on a motorcycle for everyone to see.
“People certainly paid attention to installed automatic weapons.” We heard different opinions on this matter. Against such an innovation – too military, “- said Sergeant Ronald Elcock.
At the same time, patrol policemen on motorcycles are almost always the first on the scene of the crime, therefore, it is very important that they have special means for protection themselves and law-abiding citizens.With careful consideration of the pros and cons, the management of the department of the suburbs of Phoenix decided to equip eight patrol motorcycles with semi-automatic rifles AR-15. They were mounted on special racks at the rear of the motorcycle.
It is worth noting that only the most skilled police were entrusted to patrol motorcycles with weapons, and they also received additional training for 40 hours.
