FILE - In this May 2, 2012 file photo, law enforcement and other officials examine surplus gear at Joint Base Lewis McChord in Washington state as they attend an information session for a program that distributes surplus military equipment to state law-enforcement agencies. An Associated Press investigation of the Defense Department program, originally aimed at helping local law enforcement fight terrorism and drug trafficking, found that a disproportionate share of the property distributed since 1990 has been obtained by police departments and sheriff's offices in rural areas with few officers and little crime.
