“Tin soldiers and Nixon coming...”
He did 4 talk shows, but would not appear for Fox News.
If you would have said this in the first place you moron and not blamed it on police this probably wouldn't have happened.
School is not starting in Ferguson today.
Is the NG allowed to bring their military toys?
They’re gonna need’em.
Sounds like something a totalitarian state would do.
I want to know what the ROE are and how the Guard is viewing their mission? Is this a test run??? I hate, absolutely hate the thought of our military being used as riot police. But check this out...
International riot training.
Our Savior, Cap’n Johnson , is a pathetic POS. His capitulation at yesterday’s pep rally only inflamed the situation, as he apparently convinced the thugs that he’s one of them at heart. Of course, he cannot now be removed from command because he’s black, but the calling up of the Guard is sufficient testimony to his utter failure as a LEO.
Tiny town, so the vacation break was a think tank (ha) for how to use it to spread violence around the nation.
CNN all excited about a video released to them by a girl who says she is a witness. They keep re running it calling it breaking news, it only shows the scene afterwards with BIG MIKE in the street. She starts out by saying she really could not see all that well from were she was.
was pretty pathetic really
This midterms, the Dem voters will stay home in droves.
...the above post, and any other like it, is meaningless unless it is stated as opinion...
...otherwise, you’re starting to sound like you’ve got a crystal ball in front of you, while huckstering some gullible tourists...
The cops in this country DO need to be de-militarized. The national guard should have been called out as soon as the damn looting started.
This governor, like most politicians, is highly unqualified.
I am sick to death of the collective African, jungle, tribal mentality running feral in our streets. I’m even more sick of funding it.
Cap’n Johnson.....the poster boy for affirmative action hiring.
They showed him on TV marching in the street a few nights ago with a clenched fist in the air. Pathetic.
Unless they are an MP detachment.
My nephew is in one of them here in NY. He’s done one tour in Afghanistan so far.
The cops are over-militarized.
If the public can’t tell the cops from the military, the cops have too much stuff.
Let’s be real for a minute here on FR. WE HAVE BEEN complaining, watching, etc. the up-arming of the police with armored vehicles, drones, etc. and we complain ...we worry...and Ferguson demonstrates the public reaction when COPS are put on the street that look like faux military.
In fact, I’d lay odds it is all that equipment that lead the mayor, chief of police, and even the governor to be stupid about how much control they really had. The equipment made them feel over-confident about their ability to respond, which they have no ROE to use that equipment. The over-confidence escalated matters and delayed the governor’s response of calling in the National Guard.
I commented the other day when he put a 12-5am curfew out...what? I commented that was another dumb move. Curfew is dusk to dawn. There is absolutely no need for protests after dark.
This is a major mess and then you have the likes of Sharpton out there declaring a march on DC! What the heck? It is time to arrest such agents of violence.
Its not a tiny town, its in St Louis. St Louis is made up of a bunch of towns. Ferguson is less than a mile from the St Louis airport.
I guess that jerkwad Nixon figured if he put a black in position of authority he’d be home free. But then the guy stabbed him in the back by acting like one of the thugs instead of a LEO, proving once again that for blacks in America, race trumps everything.
