A guy parked in the bike lane in Vilnius, Lithuania, so the mayor ran over the car with a tank

That’s the mayor, joyfully destroying an illegally parked Mercedes. I guess there’s a real problem of luxury cars parking wherever the hell they want in Vilnius.

”I wanted to send a clear message that people with big and expensive cars can’t park wherever they feel like and ignore the rights of pedestrians and bike riders.”

Drama in Arizona:

Sheriff Joe Arpaio rolled out the tanks to take down a man suspected of cockfighting.

West Valley residents in the neighborhood are crying foul after armored vehicles, including a tank, rolled into their neighborhood to make the bust.

In a massive show of force on Monday, the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office executed a search warrant and arrested the homeowner, Jesus Llovera, on charges of suspected cockfighting.

Steven Seagal was in the tank. Llovera’s lawyer thinks it was all staged for Seagal’s reality show.

Russia inflates its military

Russia has start using decoy inflatable tanks, trucks, and planes in order to fool its enemies. They are made at an old hot-air balloon factory and are of a special material that even fools radar and thermal imaging.

I think there is probably a metaphor for the Cold War in this, but I’ll leave that to others.
