Westminster's state police barracks, where resident troopers used to dine on road kill, will soon be torn down.Crowded and seedy, old Barracks G won't be missed by younger troopers when the new quarters open next month for the state's largest and busiest barracks. But old-timers who once boarded there chuckle at the memory of the 35-cent meals in the 1960s -- for which they were charged, even if they didn't eat them.They enjoy telling about the countless practical jokes that helped soothe tensions after 12-hour shifts on patrol.
