" Prudence " doesn't dictate the enforcement or non-enforcment of existing laws.
Thats because " prudence " is subjective. The enforcement of existing laws is objective.
Inciting a riot is actively calling for the victimization of innocent people in your own community.
The Police are hired to defend and protect those people, not the guy calling for mass property damage and violence
"Prudence " in this case just lets other criminals know what they can get away with the next time something like this happens.
The Police and the prosecutor have seriously dropped the ball here.
Michael Brown's stepfather consoled the dead teen's distraught mother after Monday's controversial grand jury announcement and then turned to the crowd of demonstrators, saying, "Burn this mother f---er down" and "Burn this bitch down," according to a New York Times video.
The comments by Brown's stepfather, Louis Head, came shortly before an eruption of rage by some protesters over the decision not to indict police Officer Darren Wilson in the August shooting death of 18-year-old Brown in Ferguson, Missouri.

Yes, I think the right thing to do is to condemn his naked incitement to riot and arson, and if applicable, pursue charges against Louis Head.
Will that happen? No, probably not.
