Earlier this month, Dallas County sheriff’s deputies drove to Fort Hood to pick up their department’s new purchase: a Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected (MRAP) armored personnel carrier.

The particular MRAP purchased by the Dallas County sheriff’s office has never been deployed in an actual combat zone, but in a memo deputies claimed that it “exceeded expectations.”
