Letter: What next, Concord?
The gift of an armored car to the Concord Police Department is yet another example of the militarization of state and local law enforcement agencies that has taken place for several decades.
I seriously doubt the armored car can be justified. What are they going to do, mount an M-60 machine gun on top of it?
What is next on the police department’s shopping list – a predator drone?
This is a perfect example of why we have the debt and deficit problems. The city council could do us all a favor by saying thanks but no thanks.
