I don't get why ALL the businesses weren't guarded and in-force...they had PLENTY of time to prepare, as EVERYONE knew what was going to happen.
Even the cops let their cars get burned, and now the taxpayers will have to buy new ones. Once again -- as I posted before -- all that "display of force" was just that, mere window-dressing & posing: They still let the looting and burning go on as they did last time.
And now the pansy Governor Dixon is (once again) talking tough (HE didn't prepare properly either) and even acts surprised at the violence as "it was more than last time" -- how INEPT can he get!
So MORE talk, and NO action. No wonder none of the criminal "protestors" fear any of "the authorities" in Ferguson -- or the National Guard. Probably the only "representatives" of law & order they DO fear is the armed citizen...hence, that's probably the MAIN reason the "protestors" don't go into residential neighborhoods to loot & burn. But they sure don't fear the cops.
And then there was the Ferguson business-owner (black, IIRC) who refused to board up his business because "he had faith in his community."
What a clueless chump -- it got looted anyway.
