According to The Daily, the Tampa police produced this vehicle to deal with some protesters.
(As many folks have observed on Twitter, these sorts of responses are playing right into the protesters’ hands.)
UPDATE: It’s not actually a “tank,” of course, though it certainly looks like one. It’s a “12-ton armoured personnel carrier.” It is supposedly for “rescue” operations, though why it needs to be armoured to do that is not clear.
