    The police have the orginization, the tactics, the hardware and three months to make a game plan. If they don't lose the momentum, they can stay in front of the escalation. If the leadership loses their nerve and don't allow their policemen to meet violence with violence, then the rioters will gain the upper hand.

    Public shaming. Yeah that's a great way to keep the peace in this volatile discussion.

    Sure you do. You point it at the people pouring the gasoline and the people who lights the match.

    Or do you think gasoline just ignites magically on it's own simply because it's sitting on as street?

    Joseph Stalin, Andrew Jackson, Pol Pot, and many other tyrants would agree with you.

    George Washington and Alexander Hamilton as well.

    But if you're satisfied with being a Jacobin, that's your problem.

    Do you not notice the contradiction between you saying "there is no winning" and then on the other say people want prosecutors to be "judge, jury and executioners." All the indictment does is ensure that the case goes to trial.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    It was not the civilians who poured the metaphorical gasoline onto this situation.

    Let me ask you this: Were it not for our sensationalist national media, who is no doubt covering this live right now with their pro-fear rhetoric, and in the case of Fox "News," Right-Wing rhetoric as well, could you honestly say that the overall civilian reaction would have been exactly the same?
