    I can see state police having them. They might actually have some need, sometime. And they can have dedicated staff that get the needed training.

    I can see almost any police having night vision goggles. Those could be really useful, and don't need too much training.

    Same with bulletproof vests. Those are useful and need little training.

    But the other crap? No way. If they have a situation that NEEDS that type of response, they need to call in somebody else, because they're in WAY over their heads.
