A Wackenhut vehicle. Note the lack of "Publicly Owned" license plates. If those Governor's get their way, all police, fire, transit, etc. vehicles would have "Corporate Owned" plates.
Hey, there's a video!
Hahaha!Should they really be using the Trimet logo though?
No different than the WES employees wearing TriMet uniforms, they are providing a service funded by and operated as part of TriMet.Same with these G4S rent-a-cops. As long as they're working for TriMet, sure they can wear the TriMet logo. Now if one of these vehicles starts responding to calls for their other clients, then that would be a problem and a mis-use of the TriMet logo.Up in Tacoma I believe G4S also provides security on the Tacoma Link "Light Rail" (Streetcar) and they wear uniforms that have both the G4S and Sound Transit (who operates the streetcar there) logos.
I guess that is what fascism actually is, blurred lines between state and government, they become one!
