Re "Davis Police Department's armored truck drives a wedge between community and police" (Editorial, Aug. 21): As a long-time Davis resident, I understand the need for a tank in the city. Picnic Day has increasingly become more boisterous, and I think I saw a student with a bazooka at Trader Joe's the other day.
That being said, I hope that our new tank has been fitted with the particulate filter and urea injector for compliance with AB 32. I doubt the Army was as concerned about air pollution in Fallujah as here. The defense of the citizenry of Davis is important, but not at the expense of climate change.
