    That's a very good point. But what we are seeing unfolding across this country in major cities is unreal. In fact most of the folks in Ferguson that caused the real violence from the beginning were not the residents. They were outsiders as in community organizers of groups with a political agenda.

    Ah, you are right. I'll correct my statement to reflect that: You ever heard of a grand jury taking 100+ days to decide whether a black man should be charged?

    But that's what happens when an idiotic prosecutor decides to announce this GJ decision late at night.
    With no slight on the way he has handled this all along.

    Giving riotous thugs an opportunity to loot and destroy under the cover of darkness is one of the dumbest things I've ever seen .
    Why can't police helicopters able to be used? Helicopters can fly at night, ya know?

    That I can accept. It would help even more if you could show me where all the libertarians are disgusted specifically by what the system is doing in this specific case. Not just the looters.

    Yes most the folks in Ferguson aren't involved in this fiasco. But who organized the groups that are there? And who organized the groups taking to the streets in major cities in this country over the verdict.?
