Now, I'm no anti-government nut, but

Is it really necessary that the San Diego Sheriff's Department, usually noted for breaking up political parties in people's homes, possess a sonic weapon used in Iraq to break up gatherings of protesters? What actual law enforcement purpose could this have? What are the crowds we are worried about?
And, given that the county is not exactly rolling in money, is this the wisest way to spend what it does have? Instead of, I don't know, hiring more deputies? Or training them so that they know which complaints are legitimate criminal complaints and which will involve them in political investigations?
