Concord Gets a BEARCAT!

The Concord (NH) City Council reconvenes to pull the Concord PD's federal grant application for a 'BEARCAT' Attack Truck off the table and -- ignoring raucous public outcry rooted in concern for both fiscal conservatism and civil liberties, and including 2 rallies and 1500 petition signatures -- give it an imperviously armored escort to approval, 9/9/2013.

They needed a two-thirds majority vote, and wouldn't ya know, they made it with one vote to spare. Elections are coming, Concord citizens (oh, and the filing period is open until 9/16, if you're of a particularly singular mind)...
