  •  seemed inevitable, considering what BS had been (6+ / 0-)

    spewed by the Ferguson Chief, trying to protect himself and the force by compartmentalizing the prosecution of Wilson and demonizing Brown.

    Curfews do work if properly managed, but can these local cops do that? Bets on whether insubordination is rampant in terms of the State Highway Patrol as well as existing emergency procedures (FEMA/DHS etc)

    Hopefully this curfew has been discussed in terms of procedures in terms of crowd control as opposed to riot control and surely it's not the first time a curfew has been imposed on the town - it does force any police to not be quite so trigger happy and to actually be cops and incarcerate legitimate curfew violators. Hopefully none of the Ferguson cops will be participating directly.

    Community leaders should be the ones to set up meetings in the churches and if necessary, to get arrested in order to bring this into the realm of reasonable civil disobedience and frankly, looters get what they deserve.

    People should try to chill and let the feds do their job so there'll be an indictment, an arrest, and a prosecution of the killer.

    So much police corruption does have a lot of moving parts and just wait for the eventual KKK counter-demo. But before that happens the National Guard's going to be deployed.
