AR-15: Kileen TX PD want to issue AR Pattern semi-autos to Patrol Division

Video with this story
Want to use seizure money to purchase FN-15's. Although I personally do not support seizure programs (I say they invite abuse), I understand the desire to upgrade to patrol rifles. Unfortunately, Open Carry of long guns and pistols continue to be an issue in Texas, that needs to be cleared up,  (between law-ignorant heavy-handed police Vs. over-zealous gun rights demonstrators), before someone get killed and the media exploits it to further the gun-confiscation agenda....(S9)
Killeen police officials want to arm every officer in the city with military-style semi-automatic rifles. The request to purchase 231 FNH FN-15 carbines was presented to the City Council by Killeen Police Chief Dennis Baldwin...Police Academy Program Coordinator Patrick Boone said the move to put firearms like these in the hands of police officers...after a deadly shootout between bank robbers and LAPD officers in 1997 in North Hollywood where officers were outgunned and later turned to a nearby gun store for more high-powered weapons...Eleven police officers and seven civilians were injured in the shootout that eventually left the two robbers dead.
Currently in Killeen the members of the SWAT team are the only officers who carry similar weapons.

AR-15 (Video) - Armed Mexican Army incursions into the USA...

Soldiers from this lonely outpost of the Mexican Army drew their guns on U.S. Border Patrol agents just 50 yards into the United States. Then in March, they opened fire on Javier Jose Rodriguez, a young Tucson man visiting family in Sásabe when he was driving around the town early on a Saturday morning after drinking beers with friends. Rodriguez was shot in the arm and in the side, he spent three weeks at University of Arizona Medical Center.
The United States' reaction has been tepid, angering people who live and patrol along the Arizona border..."I mean, it's very nerve-wracking," said Art del Cueto, President of the Border Patrol's union in the Tucson Sector, Local 2544. "A lot of these encounters happen in the middle of the night where, you know, the lighting is low and you don't know who you're encountering. You're sitting there and seeing a group of guys coming up to you and they're all carrying long-arms, you don't know what you're encountering."...
