    An Opinion ... and what you think is important!

    Back in the day, of riots like Watts and Rodney King, the governor put the city of LA on a dusk to dawn curfew, and anyone, and I mean ANYONE caught out during the curfew in the preset areas, were arrested.

    I watch with amusement as the people in command of Ferguson failed at keeping the curfew that was up for two days, and then tonight, no curfew, and only arrests of people the police felt were instigators.

    Of course why should I expect this to be any different than anything else this government has been doing over the past few years? Just like the illegal's coming over our borders and being housed, attended to, and given a date to appear, then sent into communities somewhere, anywhere in the states; the people in command of putting down the riot atmosphere in Ferguson, are going about this making little effort to arrest anyone.

    If you don't believe me, watch the film of looters walking out of stores, with cops across the street, and no one paying for their theft.

    This nation is in need of a leader. We can't move forward until someone is willing to make the tough decisions. Decisions that may make some folks angry, and others boiling hot! Even so, the laws have to be enforced, and those enforcing those laws should not be told to stand back and do nothing.

    Is it any wonder that we are on the brink of complete anarchy in America? People don't have to worry about their bad judgements or actions because the LEOs, and their managements are afraid to upset or make one group mad, or to be seen as favoring one group over a another!

    Civil disobedience needs to be put down, and then the community organizers gather with the people to talk about correcting the perceived wrongs. Civil disobedience can be tolerated, and if it means inconveniencing a few peopleuntil calm is regained, then so be it!

    Maybe the fear of law suits; or being tore apart in front of America on by a media giant has them scared. But it is becoming obvious that we lack leadership as well as the guts to do what needs to be done to send a message that American law will not stand for this manner of protesting!

    People of America need to look to Ferguson, and they'll LEO's waiting for an explosion so big that it will take a real fire fight to bring about calm! We've become a nation paralyzed by the very laws we wrote in order to protect our civil rights. Wake up America, we are letting a good thing slip through our fingers, and it looks like the ones in leadership are either inept at leading, or they have another plan in place, and they're biding their time to act on it!

    I don't know, which is scarier. Nevertheless, both appear to have a bad ending for us as a nation!

    Now for those wanting to jump in and say something ... do you think that law enforcement seems to be standing around with their hands hogtied by whomever is in command?

    …. Thus, curfews appear to be another "panacea" for crime problems -- a simplistic solution that on closer inspection has no demonstrable effect (Finckenauer 1982). Future policy and research should focus on the potential crime reduction effects of prevention strategies that provide a comprehensive array of services, opportunities, and interventions. While this approach is likely to require a substantial infusion of public resources, the long term benefits appear more promising than panacea approaches such as curfew and status policies.

    Those 40 FBI agents in Ferguson, who should be investigating the IRS, should look into all the outside agitators coming in and stirring up the mob. Of course they won't be able to investigate the boss-man, Holder.

    Well....

    I have a quick way to bring peace....

    envoke a dusk to dawn curfew; arrest anyone out on the streets during that time (unless warranted or having obtained a pass from law enforcement); and arrest these law breakers.

    Right now, those protesting in the name of rioting and looting, probably realize that this government is such a push over that like the illegals, they will not be arrested. And it looks to be the truth! :tonofbricks:
