Counterterrorism is NYPD Term for Dealing with Protesters

In New York City does counterterroism mean threatening protesters with long rifles and mounted machine guns? The answer is yes, except the New York Post story does not explicitly say “mounted” machine guns. It says the vehicles will come “equipped with” machine guns: The NYPD will launch a unit of 350 cops to handle both counterterrorism and protests — riding vehicles equipped with machine guns and riot gear — under a re-engineering plan to be rolled out over the coming months.
