What are the chances of the police in our area showing up at a mass gathering with armored cars and machine guns, displaying the sort of military might the nation’s been watching and discussing this week instead of community policing as we know it?

Excepting one case, not too likely, it turns out, unless the County Sheriff’s department or state police get called in. A survey of local police departments turned up a few Humvees for extreme weather circumstances, plenty of bicycles, and several requests for night vision apparatus.
