Re "Davis Police Department's armored truck drives a wedge between community and police" (Editorial, Aug. 21): I had to laugh when I saw the news that the strife-torn and violence-wracked city of Davis had purchased a mine-resistant armored vehicle from the Army. It reminded me of an episode of "The Andy Griffith Show," where deputy Barney Fife admonished Sheriff Andy Taylor that the city of Mayberry was in dire straits because they had no machine guns or tear gas. Maybe Davis could procure a B-52 from the Air Force as well. -- Patrick Eady, Sacramento
