Why don't we the people count?

Post  fshnski on Tue Sep 10, 2013 11:47 am

CONCORD — The City Council voted 11-4 to accept a $260,000 federal grant for an armored police vehicle Monday night, despite a great deal of public opposition.

The BearCat vote was scheduled last month, but there was so much public comment, the matter was tabled until Monday night. By order of the Fire Department, the crowd inside the council chamber was limited to 100, but there were at least as many people outside opposing the BearCat as there were in the meeting.

The vote did not take long.

"We're replacing a current piece of equipment that's failing. I have great trust in our police department," Ward 1 Councilor Elizabeth Blanchard said before announcing she would vote in favor of the grant for the Ballistic Engineered Armored Response Counter Attack Truck. "I agree it's unfortunate that we need something like the BearCat."

Ward Five Councilor Robert Werner was one of the four opposing votes.

"Just because we can, doesn't mean we should," he said.

I'd sorta want to know what that "piece of equipment" looks like.

It's sorta like getting a "free" elephant.

A free elephant that could be used against us. That is what many people fear. The way the left has this country headed it could be sooner than later.
