In this July 6, 2013 still frame from a video produced by the Los Angeles Police Department, a man posing as a terrorist runs as a heavily-armored vehicle approaches in a drill simulating a terrorist attack in downtown Los Angeles. After spending a decade sending military equipment to civilian police departments across the United States, Washington is reconsidering the idea in light of the violence in Ferguson, Mo., amid images of heavily-armed police, snipers trained on protesters and tear gas plumes. One night after the violence that accompanied the presence of military-style equipment in Ferguson, the crowd calmed considerably when a police captain walked through the crowd, unprotected, in a gesture of reconciliation. The contrast added to the perception that the tanks and tear gas had done more harm than good. (AP Photo/Los Angeles Police Department)
