National Guard Ordered Onto Streets of Ferguson, Missouri
NBC ^

Posted on 08/18/2014 12:17:02 AM PDT by TigerClaws

Missouri's governor ordered the National Guard onto the streets of Ferguson early Monday after another night of violence following the shooting by police of an unarmed black teen. "Tonight, a day of hope, prayers, and peaceful protests was marred by the violent criminal acts of an organized and growing number of individuals, many from outside the community and state, whose actions are putting the residents and businesses of Ferguson at risk," Gov. Jay Nixon said in a statement. "Given these deliberate, coordinated and intensifying violent attacks on lives and property in Ferguson, I am directing the highly capable men and women of the Missouri National Guard to assist Colonel Ron Replogle and the Unified Command in restoring peace and order to this community.”

Impeach Nixon!

Sunday morning talk shows he’s doing the rounds complaining about the militarized police. That night he calls in the real troops.

Now we’ll have 18,19 year old kids with machine guns standing guard over a mob cursing at them, throwing rocks, and the occasional Molotov cocktail.

What could go wrong?

Yea, imagine what happens if one of them fire. You think this will spill over? It happened once, but this time the media WANTS a race war.

If the MSM reports "National Guard putting end to riots, looting" - that means the Dems no longer thinks prolonging this is a good idea.

If the MSM reports "Brave demonstrators defy National Guard and curfew" - that means they want more riots.

I’m hoping these riots spread to every State that has a Senate election in November. The Democrats will be Shiiteing bricks.

The last time I was at a National Guard armory, I didn’t see many teenagers. The demographics of the Guard has changed substantially since Kent State. Remember, most of them have had at least one deployment to Iraq and/or Afghanistan.

No, not really.... They will be charged with quelling riots and protecting lives and property. They will be keeping law and order in an emergency....Not setting up a police force.

The police and population need them at this point and I think it’s the right call. This has gone far enough.

I was one of only 3 Regular Army soldiers going through Basic Combat Training with hundreds of National Guardsmen from Indiana and Kentucky. Many weekends they were learning riot control and such while the three of us were scrubbing pots and pans for them on KP because RA troops don’t get that type of training in BCT. At least not back then.

Do you think they are going to have ammo to defend themselves when they get shot at, 'cause I think that is highly likely.

That's probably a good idea. Otherwise the guard will be sitting ducks.

Hey, you just said APC, now it's hummers? ;-)

So he replaced the PD with the Mo Highway Patrol and the guy from the neighborhood.

Now the National Guard.

Maybe the hopey-changey thing doesn’t work on rioters?

~~~The national guard ARE a military force.... they’re not police.~~~

I think that’s his point - Nixon decries “militarization” of police - valid to some degree.

GeronL is not saying the police are military nor vice-versa.

Then sends in the military when his Democrat lies don’t work.

Talking about revolution is great for Progressives in their Ivy League faculty lounge or salons.

But it's a totally different issue when the tear gas is blowing, the shots are fired and blood is flowing.

Really?
The Left were worried their base was going to sit home in November.
What better way to energize them then with a nice long period of “social injustice”. All the talk will be about America’s terrible oppression of minorities, and all of the crap thats been dragging down the Rats poll numbers vanishes from the press....

There is no indication that the cop in the Ferguson incident was “militarized” in any way. He was a normal cop in a normal squad car making a normal stop.

This “militarization” meme is the latest Dem approach to excusing the bad behavior of its special weaponized pressure group constituency.
