Very wise statement!
The time for cops to have a part of this act is over.....

Per the Reddit thread, KDSK said the National Guard convoy left the armory about 30 minutes ago.

Ah, I was thinking it might have been one of the small towns right outside where I got lost once and was scared to death. Everybody staring at me like, we know you’re lost.

The National Guard prepare and train for riots and large civil disturbances, they have the equipment, tear gas and vehicles to do so.

If the cops can’t contain it fast, the NG needs to be brought in. It’s exactly what they are for. The idiot government should have brought then in by about day 2 or maybe 3...

Obama and his agents are getting what they want - chaos. Marxist Cloward Piven strategy to collapse the system before it can be rebuilt into their communist dream. How many provacateurs are being sent into Ferguson from Leftist front groups and how many of them are being paid by the Federal government through grants or other indirect means, I wonder?

Exactly. I imagine ALL OF THEM.

As history teaches, all Marxist regimes require blood in the streets to justify the iron fist that they intended from the beginning of 'hope and change'.

We're damned if we do - and we're damned if we don't.

I'd be happier with residents in Ferguson (and the rest of the country) arming up to protect themselves - and let the ghetto rats whose single mothers are dependent on government to do everything for them, do as they are doing to their own 'hoods'. And then when they are left with nothing, some parenting might evolve back in that culture.

If not - then hopefully they wither away like Detroit.

Does ANYONE know the make, model, and caliber of the officer’s handgun?

I don’t know the specifics about these guys, but I know that in the Rodney King riot, everyone they called up had riot training, and each of them had to sign a document acknowledging they had it.

There was a multi-step protocol regarding weapons, that started with rifle on sling, magazine in pouch and ran to rifle at port arms, magazine in weapon, round in chamber. The choice of which exact step the troops were on was usually made by the on-scene commander. The sound of a squad suddenly chambering a round proved to a useful deterrent.

Best of the Reddit threads, IMO:

First of what I think will be MANY Live streams tonight:

You are certainly qualified to speak on the subject if you have that going on in your neighborhood. I’m still inclined to disagree with you but your situation makes your position far more valid than I incorrectly assumed it was.

If this neighborhood had problems like some of those big cities, I guess it might be different.

I think it will motivate the whites, Hispanic (legal/hardworking-not illegals) and Asians to turn out in really high numbers. With welfare blacks at < 13% of population, if BOTH sides get motivated I think it’s going to be a conservative landslide.

Thanks! Thoughts on tonight? Will the NG arrival quell the activity, or can we expect more rioting? I understand that imbecile Gov Nixon lifted the curfew.

When blacks are involved, you can’t let them loot and burn and you can’t shoot them for looting and burning.

“Impeach Nixon!”
//////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////
Haven’t you heard? According to the new version of history currently being taught, Nixon has already been impeached. Many Americans are quite confident in their imagined knowledge that Nixon was impeached and Clinton was not. Actually THIS Clinton has not been impeached but maybe he should have been, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gjKFCYzqq-A

After his attempt to stop the riots by removing the local PD and their riot gear and replacing them with state police failed the National Guard should have been called in to stop it that night.

“The sound of a squad suddenly chambering a round proved to a useful deterrent”....

My uncle, a St. Paul, Minnesota police LT. once said to me once, “There is NOTHING that will disburse a crowd faster the sound of a shell being jacked into the chamber of a 12 gauge shotgun”. He was 100% correct. The important part is that that “shell” be loaded with buckshot and not some damn bean bags they use today. In the old days, the law MEANT the law and when you broke it you paid the price.

Guess Little Mike found that out didn’t he?

Put out the national guard and instead of having things over at midnight give the locals several more hours to get drunk and loot.

What could go wrote?

Distraction to keep minds off the horrible economy and open borders.

I guess pulling the police force out didn’t work.

If the cop killed an unarmed boy for unjust reasons he should be prosecuted, if he was justified he should at least be suspended to recover from his own trauma.

Either way theses looters and riots, and so called ‘protesters’ have no legitimate reason to tear up that town. The truth will come out and it will be delt with, you don’t there is no justice in committing crimes against other people.

“They will be “well prepared”, and fully ready, mark my words.”

Hope you are right. Just out of curiosity what do you mean by your comment? Can you expand on it a little? And, if you do have some insight you must know what units are being sent? Care to share that too? Thanks :)

The Jesse Jacksons and Al Sharptons of the world will never be satisfied, even if whites handed over control of the country and left. They make their living off of whining about racism, so they have no actual reason to see it gone.
