Three SUNY campus police departments acquired military equipment, including high-powered rifles, through the Pentagon's 1033 program, according documents obtained by Muckrock.
The free federal program distributes excess materiel to state and local police departments, at the request of the law enforcement agency.
SUNY Old Westbury's campus police received three M16A1 rifles and an an armored truck.
SUNY Morrisville and SUNY Oneonta's campus police received three M14 rifles and an armored truck.
Do the campus police really need M14 rifles and armored trucks?
Seriously, some of these dudes shouldn't even have mace.
Are tanks and planes next on the acquisition list?
