FILE - In this July 6, 2013 file still frame from a video produced by the Los Angeles Police Department, Los Angeles police take part in a downtown counterterrorism drill. A Lenco Bearcat, an armored vehicle purchased by the LAPD from a Massachusetts firm that builds them for a variety of military and police uses, stands at the rear. A Pentagon program that distributes military surplus gear to local law enforcement agencies permits even those departments that the Justice Department has censured for civil rights violations to apply for and receive lethal weaponry. That lack of communication between two parts of the federal government adds to questions about a program already facing an Obama administration review in the aftermath of the militarized police response to protesters in Ferguson, Mo.
