Authorities respond to the level of threat. If people cant act in a civilized manner, they don't deserve to be treated as such.

    IMO; Lizzie's choice of words was absolutely indicative of the uncivilized predatory behavior displayed by the looter/rioters!

    Try to keep in mind AliHaji, that we're talking about the Ferguson savages here and not the peaceful protesters!

    That is just my age showing.
    Once you get past a certain point, you just don't much care anymore what anyone thinks, except for the people you really hold close to your heart, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with speaking out what you really think and believe to be the case. I am increasingly appalled at some of my fellow humans, that they can be so unthinking, and act purely on emotion. Emotion is fine and good for your personal life and for meaningful human interactions, but it's a horrid master, if it dictates all your actions. If someone wants my respect, they have to act like a grown-up. I will always be well- mannered to people I don't know, but respect has to be earned.

    No!

    I could not muster a stronger no on this if I tried.

    Yes, when public safety warrants it, for reasonable periods of time.

    I say no.Government is the servant of the people not the boss of the people. If a few bad apples are rioting and looting then get the police to arrest those individuals. Government has absolutely no business telling the people when they can and can't leave their homes.
    As with anything else, it depends on circumstances.

    And fyi...getting those police to arrest those that are rioting and looting...1: far easier said than done. 2: the police IS a part of the government.

    Sure... why not? Is there something wrong with labelling those acting uncivilized and wantonly destroying their society as animals?

    Because the word animal wasn't used. It was the tone deaf use of the word ape.

    In general I would agree. In situations of looting and destruction of property?

    What seems quite obvious, though, is that local police, politicians and judges should be removed from all responsibilities in situations, where civil order is allowed to break down.
