Bradley takes a ride in the BatCat, a remote controlled telehandler robot used by the Los Angeles Police Department in emergency situations. Equipped with cameras and sensors for navigation via a remote operator, the LAPD's BatCat can lift vehicles and tear down walls with its massive telescopic claw.

      And they are cutting food stamps and other social programs that help the poor and needy but God forbid they cut "defense or NSA" budgets. This is just our so called government funneling money to their cronies.

      What a crock, all of the hydraulic lines fittings and hoses are completely exposed, anyone with a ,22 can stop that zoom boom from functioning, total waist of taxpayers money.

        If you looked closely at the video, it uses cables not hydraulic hoses.

        otter: You ask, " why does a police force have to have military like weapons.?" Because of bad people who do bad things.

          Britain also has bad people that do bad things, their police don't even carry guns. And yet they manage to keep order.

      Any situation that needed this kind of equipment should be handed off to the Feds, National Guard or Military.. What an assfull of wasted money. Of course these cops (I love our proper police btw) are just dying to use this new toy and will soon be using it to smash in someones house because they're growing a few plants. Im curious who is libel for the damage once they do smash in a house, building,or train car only to find out the suspect is innocent. Ginormous waste of money.

      Can anyone say heading more and more towards POLICE STATE? Unfortunately everything that could be used for good is eventually abused and there is abuse of power.
