    ... could probably quash any uprising that consisted of less than maybe 20% of the country. Clouds of tear gas, microwave pain generators, water cannon, and those new lovely sonic devices can destroy a mob while only killing ten percent of them or so. And since they would mostly be poor brown people, a large percentage of the people (and certainly a very large percentage of the police) would be cheering them on.

    No, I don't think it can happen here. The response would be too brutal. And that's even without our overwhelmingly authoritarian military being called in.
