    I mentioned that because if there would have been police presence, it would have only escalated the violence.

    So, what about the rights of the law abiding citizens? Have you totally forgotten about that??
    No. I assume what would happen is that the police would deal with the issue without acting like an invading army.

    If you have stuff you're going to use it. If you don't you'll find ways to deal with it. If the NG is needed the governor can make that decision and be held accountable by the voters.

    The NG isn't going to show up with rubber bullets.

    As opposed to the most recent intervention where they used first warnings, followed by sound waves, then tear gas, and as a last result rubber bullets. No one was beaten with night sticks. Crowd was effectively dispersed. For all your histrionics over their attire, they were effective, efficient, and fast.
    Not just attire. Tactics and mindset. If you act like an occupier you shouldn't be surprised when residents get upset.

    In all probability the NG isn't going to show up at all, which is the point.

    That's the worst excuse in the world to not deploy the cops, to quell a riot.

    So, you're solution to a riot, is to do nothing? That makes even less sense!

    I do believe a large percentage of store owners in that neighborhood are "black" and "minority" owned.

    First specific to St Louis without the heavy handed police presence there probably wouldn't have been a riot. But that's beside the point.

    My issue isn't with police quelling riots. That's part of the job. My issue with police acting like soldiers and treating citizens like the enemy.
