    so this excuses very powerful militarized armored gear with suburban police forces?? If it were some whites protesting like the Bundy ranch - no forces would have been put in place with such magnitude. Look at Bundy, he is still profiteering off of land our citizens own. Nothing's been done!

      I'm just commenting that some in the national media have called Ferguson a "small town". While technically true, it's not a standalone Pleasantville-style town. As being part of the larger county, that kind of equipment was available.

      That of course does not mean the use was justified.
