    Officials in Michigan used money to pay for 13 sno-cone machines. Columbus, Ohio used $98,000 on an underwater robot. Keene, New Hampshire, population 23,000, bought a BearCat armored vehicle despite only having one reported homicide in the last two years. Officials told DHS it was needed for events like its annual pumpkin festival. Tulsa, Oklahoma used funds for a county jail and purchased a color printer.
    A few cities used funds to pay for overtime for police and firefighters or purchased new computers for the local emergency planning office. Jacksonville UASI made a video for residents with examples of red flags “such as people with ‘above or above average intelligence’ or who displayed ‘increased frequency of prayer or religious behavior.’”
