Armored combat vehicles for the police?

Recent news of MRAPs being given to civilian police in the USA shows that they are expecting major armed opposition from the public in the future. I would imagine that Americans would in general defend the Constitution, especially those formerly or currently in the Armed Forces. But what about the Police? Their actions during the ‘Occupy’ events one or two years ago showed us all precisely where their loyalties lie. Equipped with these vehicles and other military hardware, the police nowadays are a far cry from the police of yesteryear.
