War on Christmas

Connecticut police delivered Christmas toys in a $250,000 armored vehicle

On Comet! On Cupid! On, Donner! On, uh, Bearcat?

Police in Manchester, Connecticut, eschewed the traditional sleigh on Christmas Day, instead doling out gifts while cruising around in an armored personnel carrier. The department distributed toys, collected by the local Elks Club, to 44 children around the town, according to NBC Connecticut.
