Letter: Two ways to protest BearCat

Many of you are already aware of the Concord city government’s attempt to accept stolen property in the form of a federally funded armored vehicle. You may have concerns regarding the city’s representations to the effect that this device is intended for use against peaceable Occupy activists and equally peaceable Free Staters. But it’s your constructive action which counts, not your feelings.

There are two events you can attend to amplify your opposition. The first is scheduled for Tuesday at 5 p.m. at Rollins Park in Concord. There demonstrators plan to picket an event attended by Concord policy enforcement officers. The second is Aug. 12 at 6 p.m. at the city council chambers. It’s a demonstration outside the city council’s public hearing on the matter; that hearing starts an hour later. You may want to enter early to avoid being kept out by authorities. You can also head to Facebook and search “Concord Bearcat.” That will allow you to find the event pages, join the online debate and invite your Facebook friends to these events. You are far from powerless.

Boy Scout Motto On my honor, I will do my best To do my duty to God and my country and to obey the Scout Law; To help other people at all times; To keep myself physically strong, mentally awake and morally straight. You be the judge. Skate board? Pearl Harbor? Be Prepared.

Long timer: Your introduction is excellent. Why wouldn't a Concord resident think of this weapon as something other than a skate board ? The Boy Scout motto is : " BE PREPARED" .No one was prepared at Pearl Harbor.

Stolen property? Why would someone believe it would be used on 'peaceable' people? I've only observed these vehicles being used for protection of SWAT teams.

Please try to see that which is camouflaged ! Your president has purchased millions ( probably billions by now ) of dollars worth of ammunition using the taxpayers buck. You don't have to be a , Bo Dietl to figure this out. Here is a hint : The Feds want Concord ,NH to have an armored vehicle.

Do NOT protest the bearcat on Tuesday at Rollins Park!!! This is National Family Night Out and is supposed to be a positive FAMILY event. The Concord Police are only one of MANY different groups at the event. It is not meant to be a protest for things people are against, it is supposed to be an event for the city to come together. Secondly, why are the majority of people who are writing editorials to the Monitor AGAINST this bearcat NOT residents of Concord???
