    Here is an excellent example of what Barbarians (Non Romans) were confronted with when they came upon the Roman Legions. Pay close attention to how many men are actually fighting on the front line. Look at how they are reinforced. At the 3:00 Mark they make an echelon right movement, develop the line, make room for reinforcement and build a kill box on the left flank, develop that advantage and charge the enemy. Amazing video.

    Hundreds of cops have been ordered to bring their “hats and bats” — helmets and old-school wooden nightsticks — to the Rev. Al Sharpton’s march against police brutality, sources said Thursday. About 350 officers, some on their days off, were told to report to the Staten Island rally at 6 a.m. Saturday, two hours earlier than usual. **SNIP** “We have no reason to believe there will be any problems. Our only concern is that there will be outsiders coming to cause problems,” a police source said.

    Libertarians warned for years that government is force, that government always grows and that America's police have become too much like an occupying army. We get accused of being paranoid, but we look less paranoid after heavily armed police in Ferguson, Missouri, tear gassed peaceful protesters, arrested journalists and stopped some journalists from entering the town. One week before the rioting began, Fox News aired my documentary on the militarization of law enforcement, "Policing America." That show didn't stop some left-wing commentators from making the bizarre claim that libertarians like me have been silent about Ferguson. I can't force them...

The thing is, Officer Dutta (pictured) is also an Adjunct Professor of Homeland Security and Criminal Justice at Colorado Technical University. And he uttered those words not in the heat of the moment, but in an opinion piece in the Washington Post responding to widespread criticism of police attitudes and tactics currently on display in Ferguson, Missouri, but increasingly common nationwide.

    WASHINGTON (AP) — When racial tensions erupted midway through his first presidential campaign, Barack Obama came to Philadelphia to decry the "racial stalemate we've been stuck in for years." Over time, he said, such wounds, rooted in America's painful history on race, can be healed. Six years later, the stalemate suddenly seems more entrenched than ever. As Obama pleads for calm and understanding in Ferguson, Missouri, he's struggling to determine what role — if any — the nation's first black president can play in defusing a crisis that has laid bare the profound sense of injustice felt by African-Americans across...

One: The officer will not be tried Two: There will be a trial with two possible outcomes: a) Wilson is acquitted b) He is found guilty The questions: What will be the reaction of various segments around the country? Will it be a repeat of LA 1992? Do you know your community and the demographics? Anticipated reaction from various communities? What preparation steps, if any, are you taking for these outcomes?

    At least two more people have been shot as more violence has erupted in Ferguson, Missouri, where there have been several days of rioting in response to a police shooting of a black teenager. Officials overnight said a police officer shot a man who pointed a handgun at him, and a woman apparently was shot in a drive-by shooting. At KTVI-TV in St. Louis, some of the details were emerging. The station reported it was about 1 a.m. when four men, masked and carrying shotguns, approached a crowd. The report said when police arrived they heard shots fired and saw...

The violence began to flare again around 9 p.m. local time as police in riot fear fired teargas on hundreds of protestors - including children - for encroaching on their command post. Authorities also used rubber bullets and several protesters have reported getting hit. Many of the marchers retreated, but a group of about 100 stood defiantly about two blocks away until getting hit by another...

Nixon, speaking to ABC News' Martha Raddatz on This Week on Sunday, said the sight of police in riot gear with armored tanks led to his decision to replace the local police force with highway patrol. The measure had a calming effect at first, but last night saw one man shot and seven arrested after resisting the curfew order. A picture has emerged...

Not content to wait for the wheels of the justice system to spin, some view this tragedy as a license to riot.

Contrarily, SBCC and UCSB are beacons of the educational process in...
