    UGLY x 2: Police station installs bullet proof glass

    It's bad enough that the police in Flint, MI feel they need bullet proof glass, but they can't pay for it themselves so they need the federal gov't to pay for it.

    Probably cheaper than the trial and the upkeep of the prisoner in the long run!

    Where can I get MY government-funded bullet proof glass?

    If the police don't feel safe in their home, what chance do I have? Oh, yeah, I have the right to arm & protect MYSELF!

    back in the early 80's we had a walkin lobby,to talk to anybody you walked up to the dispatch window and talked through ballistic glass"Bullet proof",any doors had electric locks on steel framed doors.

    (Bullet proof is a misleading term,it's really bullet resistant,if you put enough rounds of ammo in the same spot they will eventually punch thru,but it will give you enough time to take cover.)

    We had one Officer that discovered it will stop a 147 grain Winchester Silvertip HP fired out of a 4" 686.

    When did police officers start paying for their own protective equipment? I don't have any problem with the government paying for it.

    Yup, I can't say I've seen a police station in the past 20 years that didn't have bullet proof glass...many it's placed in a wall of 1/4in drywall, but bulletproof glass is common place now.
