    Good movie and Devil's Night centered around Arson right ?

    Considering that most of the really bad riots hat to be countered by calling in the NG?

    People need to stop trying to turn a bunch of thugs that are rioting and looking into some sort of saints. All you are doing is ignoring the ones that aren't acting like petulant two year old.

    What exactly do you have a problem with in that picture? The fact their wearing body armor? The armored truck that stores their gear? This stuff is standard issue for SWAT teams... got a problem with them?

    I have a problem with local law enforcement being as armed (perhaps more?) as military soldiers, yes. Freedom can not exist under an over-bearing, unaccountable, militarized pack of goons with no respect for their constituents.

    Now you're just being over-dramatic. It wasn't until the rioting started that you even knew Ferguson had an armored truck. Would you prefer rioters breaking into your business and taking whatever they wanted? I didn't think so.

    Also, you would agree though that there is a need for unit that has the equipment and training to deal with situations like hostage situations, spree shootings and the like? I've said it multiple times on here, and if you responded at some point then I apologize for it being redundant, but do you remember what happened with the Bank of America Shootout?

    Edit: Oh, and there not as armed as the military. There not using offensive grenades (frag, incendiary etc) there not using heavy machine guns, there not using tank cannons... so just stop that.

    Right. Because the presence of these military style police has definitely calmed things down.

    Also, you would agree though that there is a need for unit that has the equipment and training to deal with situations like hostage situations, spree shootings and the like?

    In hostage situations you need tactic, not brute force.

    Edit: Oh, and there not as armed as the military. There not using offensive grenades (frag, incendiary etc) there not using heavy machine guns, there not using tank cannons... so just stop that.
    Many millitary chapters don't have those things. You're thinking of infantry, not general ground troops. The point is that modern cops more resemble soldiers than civillian peace officers. They were supposed to be just like us.

    It has/will in terms of the rioting. It's not meant to "calm" the racial tension that exists at the time. That's for the courts to do.

    What? What's a military chapter? In any case, we still have those other cops, and I agree with Powerbob that the uniformed cops should probably be out and and about on food more often to smooth things over. But when things get out of control, we need to make sure the police are protected, so they can protect us yes?
