    but it seems that cooler heads in the masterminds of this debacle of gigantic proportions are not prevailing. Seriously, how fucking stupid do you have to be to not realize that the militarized police IS the problem - even for the public relations alone someone "in charge" must see the reality that the police are deteriorating the situation.

      When I saw that assault vehicle on the news! I thought the gov. had called out the national guard - bad enough - but when it was revealed to be the equipment of a PD in a city I'd never heard of...I was outraged.

      Assault weapon pointed at citizens and protesters? My god!

      It is in the admission of ignorance and the admission of uncertainty that there is a hope for the continuous motion of human beings in some direction that doesn't get confined, permanently blocked, as it has so many times before... Richard P. Feynman
