    These cops NEED to use the militairy grade equipment. The government hands it out to cops with the stipulation "Equipment must be used within a year or returned". Therefore the cops need to use it to keep it. Whether the ammount of force is appropriate or not.

    Meh...you are just pissed the crowds were so easily dispersed and you dont have any good pictures of cops laying into civilians with batons for you to exploit. You want blood...because it makes good press.

    Nah...you want blood. You want victims and glossy 8x10s so you and the rest of your ilk can bleat on about how teh eeeeeeeevil police officers are oppressing those poor people. The fact is...all it took was a few minutes, some tear gas, and a few rubber bullets and everyone went home. The one night there WASNT looting and rioting was the night the police shut everyone down.

    When viewing MainScream media, it seems to me that the media is sort of explaining what happened as a "New Event" and without any reference to history long past.

    The pundits act as though they had no idea as to the amount of anger seething within the population, much less the complete lack of respect towards anybody in authority. It is as though they have ignored the comment section of their very own media outlet for the past 15 years or more.

    We are being told that the NSA is reading everything Mankind posts in MouseLand and scan every e-mail, and with the ability to monitor every single phone call in the world ..... and yet there is total surprise expressed by the media pundits when recognizing the discontent within society as this particular "Event" unfolded.

    Then of course, there are lengthy discussions as to how the cure must be crafted in order to get the "Event" behind us and so that America can "Move On".

    A viewer tends to walk away with a sense of confidence that the "Event" will be investigated and a cure will be implemented. Obviously, once the reasons behind the problem have been detailed by countless media interviews, there is but little choice but to enact a cure once we recognized an "Event" which sort of just snuck up upon us. It is just that the Ruling Class were unaware of these underlying problems encountered within society, but surely after endless hours of televised punditry, it is plainly described and no doubt the underlying problem will be dealt with promptly and properly while on the route to "Problem Solved".

    I laughed aloud as the media described a "New Method Of Community Policing" which seemed to have never been thought of during 250 years of history.

    The New Method was having a uniformed police officer actually walk hand in hand with the protesters at the very head of the protest parade and in "Solidarity" with the community.

    Obviously; when realizing that this New Method of policing was quite successful, one would expect to soon see where these military weapons and tanks were melted down for their metal value and the proceeds used to build a playground in the community.

    However; history shows that the Ruling Class have very good memories, it is just that they are short.

    Thus the reason why the sores within society continue to fester.

What you fail to recognize (because you are so hell bent on buying into the foolishness and rhetoric) is that the tactical anti-riot measures were effective with minimal contact.

    Face facts...you bought into some moronic politicians rhetoric hook line and sinker. You didnt actually bother to 'think'.
    Frankly we're acting no better than a third world pisshole. I don't have an issue with dispersing rioters - those few that there actually were. I have a big issue with American cities looking like frigging Baghdad during the war.

    Perhaps you should address your concerns to the people that cause the need for those militarized police forces to be there in the first place.

    Yep, they need victims to exploit.

    People dont realize that it took the California National Guard to shut down the 1992 LA Riots.
