    Our Society is based on a system of laws.
    A group of people, have stated that if the process of our legal system does not
    produce the outcome they desire they will protest.
    Some of the protest have turned criminal and violent.
    One of the jobs of the Governor is to keep the peace.
    One of the chants of the protestors is "No Justice, no Peace",
    which seems to imply some level of violence towards people or property.

    The protestors have put two United States senators on their hit list. Nixon is being very prudent in readying the NG to respond to the violence. These folks have the right to yell, hoop and holler, but they do not have the right to target private citizens and private property.

    If these threats are carried out, I hope a whole truckload of excessive force is used against the rebels.

    If he were so concerned about the one-time possibility of rioting and looting, then maybe he should look at the much larger problem of the systematic oppression of people of color. Maybe, just maybe, that is what they have been desperately trying to say. But I don't expect for him--or the naysayers on this forum, for that matter--to ever get that.
    I haven't seen any oppression of people of color, unless all the private property that was looted and burned was owned by black folks and the damage was done by white folks. Was it?

    Re: Is MO Gov Jay Nixon helping or hurting the situation...

    i wonder if anyone were to ask the shop owners in ferguson what they thought, their reply might be?

    and since insurance doesnt cover riots, their livelihood is on the line

    and since most of them are BLACK, you wonder what their vote would be

    do you think they would want their businesses protected?

    Isn't that what a trial is about. getting to the facts? If Wilson does not want to defend his actions in a court of law... He can plead the 5th. That is his right.

    What's the alternative though?

    Just let them riot until they tire out?

    Screaming racism has been a great political tool for the left but I just don't understand how anyone can really question this with a straight face. I mean, I guess the argument is if a riot occurs it's because the National Guard was called and, ya know, that means black people need to respond with a riot.

    Just don't riot. How hard is that?

    Hit list? What are you talking about? Do you know how many threats US Senators receive on daily basis. I would bet money that someone you know has a list.

    He's helping the situation by having the NG available to protect those not committing violence in the streets - or should I say potential violence in the streets.
    “I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
