Warthog deployments to Europe

Over the years, I’ve seen deployment of Warthogs to the ‘Heath and the ‘Hall so here are my photos of Davis-Monthan deployment to the Heath in 2015 including a pair went to Yeovilton Air Day in July. Then in 2018, Michigan ANG ‘Red Devils’ deployed to the ‘Hall including the centenary painted airframe in D-Day markings

cheers

I am surprised no Sheriffs or Police departments have bought some to complement their MRAPs

If you'd ever seen a pair doing their thing - it would come as no surprise.

LAPD has an Air Wing bigger than a couple of European Air Forces....but chasing down a stolen car or monitoring fences for La Migra is not what these ac are all about. A-10s are just airborne devastation.

none are sold, they rebuild them

an MRAP is just a Armored truck no machineguns or cannon comes with it, and quite useful when you're being pelted with bricks and petrol bombs.

Given their history, especially in the hands of the Air National Guard, of shooting up anything that moves I doubt even the psychotic Current Incumbent wants them in the air over CONUS.
Anywhere else of course, is in his view fair game....

Steam hammer to crack a Brazil nut comes to mind.
