1.)	Wonder if any Kats who joined the Enforcers knew that it'll be a
short-lived career? I bet they didn't read the fine print: "You are
entitled to get blown up by super villains in the line of duty." ;-)
 While it _can_ be a short-lived career, it will not necessarily be
such for every Enforcer, or even many. Just as in our society you have
rookie cops getting killed in the line of duty, while in the same
department you can find cops about to retire who've never had to draw
 their sidearm on duty.
Yes, being an Enforcer can be hazardous to one's longevity, just
like being a cop or soldier in our world. But it's still pretty
appealing, getting to face new challenges every day, play with nifty
gadgets, and possibly find a better career than in a non-Enforcer
field. Certain personality types are also naturally drawn to such
fields (an adrenaline rush can be pretty intense :).
Hey, I face the risk of getting blown to bits on occasion, and have
the three grey hairs to prove it, but that is far outweighed by the
challenges and rewards of the job. You pays your money, you takes
your chances :)         
2.)	Could the Enforcers be really an army of Kat-klones, like Judge Dredd?
All the Enforcers look the same to me.

Apart from animation shortcuts, when you consider the fact that
there are undoubtedly physical requirements of the job, and the
armor and uniforms they wear give them a sameness, this is no
surprise. There may even be a requirement for Kats that fall in a
certain size/height range, just as Russian tank crewmen must be 5'4"
or shorter.
4.)	If the TurboKat has laser weaponery, how did Razor built it? Could
radioactive substances be dumped in the Salvage Yard illegally?

Why radioactive? Lasers do not require radioactive materials to
