    Is that some kind of justification for taxpayers to fund and maintain armored personnel carriers, drones and military grade weapons? You serious support that just in case once in a blue moon there's a violent protest?

    Re: Officer "Go **** Yourself" Threatens to kill journalist

    I just don't get this term "Outside People" or "People From Outside" Ferguson.

    The media is always claiming ....

    People "From Outside" came to cause problems and to encourage this civil unrest."

    Why is it not said this way?.....

    "Protest Supporters from around the nation came to cause problems and to encourage this civil unrest."

    Why are they being described with a suspicious sounding term like "Outsiders"?

    Were there any "Outsiders" at the last political fundraising event in support of the Republican/Democrat candidates and their platform and/or causes?

    Re: Officer "Go **** Yourself" Threatens to kill journalist

    Who declared this civil unrest as being "Over" or "Finished" and that Ferguson is "Moving On"?

    Is it considered "Over" because the National Guard was pulled out?

    Do you think that the local police force has an overwhelming desire now to return to policing Ferguson? That they are all standing around anxiously waiting for the first opportunity to begin patrolling the streets again?

    I think that the only "Respect" and "Sense Of Authority" that the local police enjoy in the future will only be gotten at the point of a gun?

    As the economy continues to crumble, civil unrest will only increase.

    Nobody is "Moving On" except the media and the politicians.

    There is a huge difference between "Moving On" and "Moving Forward".

    It should be clear based on the response to the riots how the agenda is for a war against Americans in America.

    If needed I'll elaborate further, but this response is about stopping the press, not about stopping the riots.

    Honestly though, I have a hard time getting worked up over this kind of thing.

    Screaming "STAY BACK OR I WILL F*CKING SHOOT YOU!!! DO YOU F*CKING UNDERSTAND?!?!" is basically what the military explicitly trains you to do in those kinds of situations. lol
    The police are not supposed to be the military, and threatening to shoot unarmed civilians is out of line.

    This was tried, prior to the last century in fact, and it failed miserably. There was so much corruption and bribery and favoritism and so much more that we decided this simply does not work.

    Except this was done to media, and the looters / rioters are left mostly untouched.

    This is still an escalation from the third night where they were lining people up with the red dot on the rifle.

    They have tried to tell the media / people to turn off their cameras, this was moments before they launched a series of flash bangs, tear gas, and rubber bullets. This happened a day or two before the police attacked a camera crew, dismantled their setup, and told the world that they HELPED the media.

    This is training the police on martial law...

    You need to read more history books. Private police forces which do not enjoy state privilege have been enormously successful throughout history. I'll dig up some sources for you.

    Not in this country they haven't. I studied law enforcement, including the history. We have not done well with allowing private police forces to run the system. It simply does not work well, not having them alone enforcing laws of the country.
