The Front Line Against Police Militarization

That's the people, btw. You, in point of fact, dear reader. By special request, some highlighted testimony from the City Council public hearing regarding the acquisition of a ManBearPig-- er, I mean BearCat, AKA, "Ballistic Engineered Armored Response Counter Attack Truck," the "Homeland Security" grant-subsidized (so, your money, regardless) armored attack truck (the manufacturer's description, although the cops prefer the rather more innocuous "rescue vehicle," which isn't exactly prominent in the militarizing marketing materials for some reason) by local law enforcement's Special Operations Unit, in Concord, NH, 8/12/2013. Sign the petition at No More BEARCATS. See the full hearing and links to lots of previous media here.
