"Davis City Council votes 3 to 1 to return military vehicle"

2014-08-26 from the "Student Unity Movement":
The City Council of the City of Davis tonight voted to return a "MRAP" military vehicle within a 60-day deadline, while leaving open the exact way that the vehicle would be disposed of, pending staff analysis.  The vote was 3 to 1 in favor of returning the vehicle: Dan Wolk, Robb Davis, Lucas Frerichs in favor -- Brett Lee, opposed -- Rochelle Swanson, abstains.
The attainment of the "mine-resistant, ambush-protected" (MRAP) vehicle by the police department, without clearing the specific purchase through the City Council, was heavily criticized by many citizens president. Approximately 38 people make comments about the vehicle, with only 2 of those 38 in favor of retaining the vehicle.
