Learning from Ferguson
What have we learned from the Micheal Brown tragedy? Apparently, a certain segment of society has little to no regard for the rule of law. They despise law enforcement officers. They do not respect the property rights of others. They are large and physically-strong with hair-trigger tempers and less self-restraint than most other Americans. They really like to take merchandise without paying for it. They do not know the difference between demonstrating peaceably and rioting. They try to elevate their looting to a struggle for civil rights. They need saturation policing because they refuse to discipline those who are clearly out of line in their own community. Lastly, we have learned that the National Guard must be brought in to restore calm.
