    Why are the Police bending to these idiotic criticisms of " militarism " ?

    Riots and looting every night because the Police are worried about how their actions may look on the News.

    Its ridiculous.

    They can't do their job, protect shops or innocent Americans from thug looters because some moron says the look like soldiers ?

    And those would be who? The few rioters or the hundreds of peaceful protesters?

    How? What would be the acceptable way to do that to you?

    Why aren't the "hundreds" policing their own "few" that are doing the damage? When you don't act you become an accessory to the crime.

    Both. The "peaceful protesters" aren't following the law...they are blocking public streets. Their agitators are whipping people into an angry frenzy. And rather than condemn the looters they excuse and justify. So blame them both. Blame the ones that have burned buildings and robbed Shenaynay's Weave Shop to show their outrage over cops and brutality.

    So you want peaceful protesters to confront violent pillagers? Not everyone is as brave as you.

    That is a cowards response. It is unfortunately all too common.

    Everyone is screaming about the need to enforce the law in order to gain control of the situation.

    I think that the underlying complaint for this discontent and civil unrest is that the "Enforcement Of The Law" is/or has been shown to be very selective within this particular community and right across the broad spectrum of American society.

    I am all for Enforcing The Law against those stealing a few chocolate bars and the looters, but not until Enforcement Of The Law has been carried out on Wall Street with the same determination and style as presently being applied to the Common Folks in this specific town.

    It seems to me that Enforcement Of The Law all depends upon how great a defense an arrested person is capable of putting up. If you can afford to hire the skills required to defend yourself, and actually threaten to bankrupt the Crown Attorney's yearly budget, then you get a pass.

    Everybody who can afford a defense holds the Crown Attorney hostage as his office budget crumbles and the Crown Attorney begins to look incompetent because being over budget.

    But, if the cost of Enforcing The Law in Poor Town America is very cheap because everybody just pleads guilty, everybody looks good except the person charged.

    Justice is never done. It must only appear to be done.

    and can LE be properly equipped to ensure the LE officers safety when they confront the "violent pillagers" ?

    The peaceful protesters want "justice" for the teenager. I don't here much from them for "justice" for the owners who place of business has been looted.
