If there's a legitimate reason for officers to give a lawful order for people to leave an area due to imminent danger or if they are interfering with a police investigation, the people have to do so. To not do so, is a misdemeanor in most states that I know of. The cops have the right to put you under arrest for not complying. However, the fine line there is that it has to be a lawful order based on imminent danger or interference with a police investigation. Sounds to me that this may be what happened here - based on your statement.

    People are too quick to blame the cops in situations like this. I heard about the suit, but not what it was about. Just that some of the people in Ferguson were suing the police.
    Violations of civil and constitutional rights, that's what the lawsuit is basically about, along with brutality, false imprisonment, I can think of more, but it's too early.

    If they believe their civil rights were violated they have remedies via the courts just like everyone else.

    Nothing wrong with a little protest.

    It's *rioters* who should be put down like rabid dogs.

    Is it?

    The footage from Ferguson tells a different story.

    In 2012 there was something like 80,000 no knock warrants issued. Those are routinely served by teams of heavily armed cops and routinely served against non violent offenders.

    If a specific rioter threatens life, I agree.

    Little problem with legality. Except possibly for setting stuff on fire.

    And since when does rioting impose a death sentence without the benefit of a trial. Last I checked cops are not judge, jury and executioner.
    So all of the damage done was done by police?

    How did you get to be so "smart"?

    Isn't stealing already against the law in Mississippi? It is here, but then, California has been accused of over regulation.
