We don’t negotiate with terrorists but our Police Officers are expected to just stand there as some idiot throws a gasoline bomb or fires on them with a concealed weapon.
Police Images Fuel Outrage in St. Louis and Beyond
The images were reminiscent of a war zone: Helmeted officers pointing weapons from armored trucks, flash grenades lighting the night sky and tear gas exploding in crowded streets.
The ugly clashes between police and protesters in this St. Louis suburb fueled a torrent of criticism and raised questions about whether the officers’ tactics were inflaming the same violence they aimed to suppress after the fatal shooting of Michael Brown, an unarmed black teenager.
The repeated scenes of police officers wearing military-style camouflage and gas masks and training their rifles on unarmed civilians — some holding their hands up — looked to critics more like an Army trying to quell a revolution than a police department trying to keep the peace in a small suburb.

Strange that the media would actually use a line like this, “looked to critics more like an Army trying to quell a revolution than a police department trying to keep the peace in a small suburb”, thus giving someone like me an opening to launch a TIRADE against the Mainstream Media, their obvious bias against the Police and love for the animals that continue to threaten Ferguson, MO.
Keeping the peace isn’t just a line you use in a news article, it’s not something that can be accomplished with the wave of a hand or a plea from a *Community Organizer*.
Depending on the mentality, mood and mindset of the people involved there are times when gentle persuasion works quite well, but when you’re dealing with a huge, angry MOB of people intent on rioting and destroying property you are sometimes forced to respond with violence of your own if these people refuse to cease and desist in their actions.
SHARON COHEN and ALAN SCHER ZAGIER of the Associated Press criticize the Police for wearing military-style camouflage and gas masks and for training their rifles on unarmed civilians.
Regarding the unarmed civilians; I don’t suppose it ever occurred to these reporters that the *hood rats* can conceal some decent sized guns, and other armaments in those baggy-assed pants they wear.
I would bet HUGE amounts of money on this being a fact; SHARON COHEN and ALAN SCHER ZAGIER have neither one ever had to face down a crowd, much less an angry and violent MOB. Also, how would SHARON COHEN and ALAN SCHER ZAGIER have any idea if the weapons the Police were carrying were indeed trained on some unarmed civilians?
These reporters, SHARON COHEN and ALAN SCHER ZAGIER also cry about the attire worn by the Officers that were attending the RIOT.
What these two ass-nuggets don’t understand is this; the Police were wearing military-style camouflage UNIFORMS because it is their WORK CLOTHES.
You don’t attend a high-brow event in cargo shorts and a golf shirt.
You must dress appropriately for the event you’re attending and your basic daily uniform is NOT what you wear when you go to war, and if you LIBERAL, Police hating ass-nuggets don’t think it’s a WAR that these folks were going to, try joining the Police side of the line and find out for yourselves, 1st hand, what it feels like to have your life threatened for simply *doing your job* as you Liberals and Police haters are so fond of saying.
Molotov Cocktails Thrown at Officers in Ferguson
St. Louis County police spokesman Brian Schellman said officers on Wednesday night tossed tear gas to disperse a large crowd of protesters after some threw Molotov cocktails and rocks at officers. More than 10 people were arrested in Ferguson.
“In talking to these guys, it is scary,” Schellman said of officers on the front lines of the protest. “They hear gunshots going off, and they don’t know where they’re coming from.” SOURCE
It’s probably a good thing I’m not the guy in charge, you see, if I were, and some *hood rat son of a bitch* lit a Molotov like the *hood rats* pictured above are doing, and threw it at me or my guys, my orders would be to open fire with the 240-Bravos and SAW’s.
That particular group of *hood rats* would be lying in a huge pool of blood and would be left there an example of what happens when you try to kill or injure Officers of the Law.
I don’t know what kind of *victim mentality* that would provoke but I imagine they would want some *work boots* when the LIVE ONES had to clean up what was left of the DEAD ones, and clean up the mess they made.
