Panga Boat Bust 9/6

Weekly Poll
Should police be allowed to use surplus military equipment?

Cheap or free gear for local police? Sounds good to me.
No. Police are meant to serve the people, not to threaten them.
If they use it properly I don’t see any reason why not, but I don’t feel comfortable seeing cops with assault rifles.
Nothing says democracy like a bayonet to the butt.

What a thrill!

I just read your piece on attending the inauguration (“He gets us,” Jan. 31) and had to say thank you. I wanted to go and was almost booked but decided to stay home and watch on the tube instead, and wish now I had followed through and risked the chance of blizzard, the cost, and whatever other reasons made me stay home.

I don’t always pick up New Times and rarely have a moment to read all the way through, so I’m especially glad to have read Susan Pyburn’s commentary and shared her excitement.

Many thanks for the vicarious thrill.
