    in civilian clothing. Uniforms are an important element in how they are identified by others in the unit, as well as civilians. Sidearms are not standard equipment for most members of a Guard unit and I wonder if they would have enough to arm every Guard member?

      But, perhaps they could patrol in dress uniform rather than combat fatigues.

      As for the side arms, I suspect 100 handguns could be obtained in the state of Missouri with little problem. The point is to de-militarize, while not leaving the residents of Ferguson completely stripped of any protection for property and person.

      Wealth doesn't trickle down -- it rises up.
