Where's MARV?

I've written in the past about MARV, the armored vehicle of the McHenry County Sheriff's Department. It's not too fancy, compared to what some departments have been ordering. But it's still there, or so I think it is.

Is it being supplemented? Or replaced? Where is MARV? Anybody know? It may be a fair-weather vehicle. Does it even have a heater or windshield defrosters? Last time I looked at it, I didn't think it had windshield wipers. Does it still have Nygren's name plastered all over it? Are they still letting an untrained operator drive it?

Now comes this posting on Freedom Outpost:

"The ACLU has announced a nation-wide investigation of the militarization of our country’s police forces.

"The danger of any militarized group is that when it is sponsored by the government, it may be turned against the people. In fact, that’s why we have a Second Amendment. The Framers worried that a federalized government would turn against the people and use a standing army to do it."
