Of course, that means that the LAPD will want an aircraft carrier now.....
What we have here is... failure- to communicate.

Heard something about the NYPD getting a 4 or 5 million dollar helicopter...anyone see that story?

On a side note, New York is quickly replacing California as my least favorite state in the Union...

Lets just keep it in perspective...

Even with 6 boats patrolling ~1200 miles of river, its not real likely that this will be THE answer to the drug smuggling problem. It may be a good start, it may be just another piece of puffery. In either case, I can't imagine the Mexican drug cartels just throwing up their hands & giving up the business; they most likely will find a way as long as demand for their product remains high (unavoidable pun ) here in the US.
