    It is growing more and more evident that the citizens in Ferguson are growing more restless with each passing day, as they wait to hear what the findings of the Grand Jury investigation of the Michael Brown shooting will reveal.

    It is being reported that regardless of what the findings are, there will be civil unrest. http://www.gopusa.com/news/2014/11/...vil-unrest-regardless-of-grand-jury-decision/

    All major US cities are preparing for some sort of civil unrest when the verdict is announced. http://www.cbsnews.com/news/ferguso...brace-for-protests-after-grand-jury-decision/

    So my question is .... do you see civil unrest resulting from the GJ findings, and will it be nation-wide? And, who is at fault should the unrest come?

    FINALLY: Do you feel that any civil unrest coming out of the GJ decision and resulting the destruction of property and possibly results in injuries and deaths of those on both sides of the issue is warranted?

    The problem is not the citizens of Ferguson.

    The out of town professional protesters are looking for another chance to loot.

    No one does but the Democrats think they will. I believe it was also part of ramping up their base before the election.

    Out of all the crisis in the recent past say the last 30 years can you think of any where the government hasn't gained more money, more power and more control as a result?

    If there is major civil unrest in Ferguson what will the government's solution be? Martial law? A more militarized police force? More warrant-less spying? Less first and fourth amendment protections?

    The government always seeks to gain more money, more power, and more control out this type of situation, "crisis". And it usually gets it while the problems are rarely if ever solved.

    Someone or something always benefits from a crisis. Or have you forgotten what Rahm Emanuel told us?

    Such as the police in NOLA after Katrina?

    Someone seems to be benefiting already.

    Steven King of Metro Shooting Supplies says he’s seen a 300% increase in gun sales as the St. Louis area awaits to see if officer Darren Wilson will be indicted.

    No. Peaceful non violent protest is OK, even encouraged.

    The problem is it won't be peaceful nor non violent.

    Dedicated anarchists will be involved at every level. Where they go, violence follows.
