Comments on: Missouri governor’s pre-emptive state of emergency is an alarming mistake http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/11/24/missouris-governor-pre-emptive-state-of-emergency-is-an-alarming-mistake/ Thu, 21 Jul 2016 07:57:19 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: donavan http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/2014/11/24/missouris-governor-pre-emptive-state-of-emergency-is-an-alarming-mistake/#comment-100575 Sat, 29 Nov 2014 16:09:29 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/great-debate/?p=35995#comment-100575 The governor is blamed for not having the National Guard the first night when huge swaths of the area were burned. The sad part this buildings are locally owned business owners .Now the deed has been done insurance will go up, lots of folks will not be able to rebuild because of language in insurance will not cover war ,riots etc…I notice what international community views as facts and USA citizens view are different to say the least. Of course the issue locally is divided on racial lines.

The destruction was worse than stupid – it was IGNORANT! Do these mobs have any plan for rebuilding – making things better? NO. It was looting, rioting, burning just for the heck of it and no plans for any betterment of what used to be their community.

History shows that these poor areas in America have looted and robbed, their communities during protests. Where was the great “Al” to calm the riots? Until, the cycle of poverty in these type of communities is broken and the children are taught to respect authority and have a meaningful future in from of them, these type of events will continue well into the future. The kids need to be removed from the homes, like was did in Newark, N.J. And schooled properly so as to break the cycle of crime. They need to be loved and cared for and shown the way to success, not in mostly in broken homes with no father. Theses types of programs, if expanded my someday, stop this behavior, not trying to discredit law enforcement. In most all of the news, the shot victims, we’re not simply walking down the road, they confronted police, and we’re shot. Police work is tough, and I would like to see the liberal naysayers walk the beat with an officer in any of these high crime areas in America for just one summer night. Ism sure they would change their tune real fast.

You sure missed the mark on this one.

There has been violence and looting off and on for over 3 months. I would think that not only was the Governor correct in declaring an emergency, but that any realistic person would have done the same.

There was no doubt that there would have been rioting no matter what the verdict would have been. And with all the people looking for 15 mins of fame getting on TV and declaring that Justice was not being done even before the Grand Jury made their ruling simply fanned the flames of the Mob Mentality that destroyed so much of the Ferguson area.

“…protest leaders calling for Wilson’s head without having all of the facts.”
” …declared the police to be guilty and punishable weeks ago. Does evidence mean nothing?”

This author is an activist trying to get a TRIAL in the JUSTICE SYSTEM, not a witch hunt. These commenters jumping to conclusions reveals much about their own racist attitudes. You all want to pre-judge the cop as innocent, when the protesters are demanding a trial, without which the facts cannot ever be known for sure, and the people have a right to be upset about the lack of closure in this case.

You would presumably prefer collective punishment; since there are some looters and vandals, the whole lot do not deserve justice to be served one way or the other, in your biased opinions. This non-reasoning says everything we need to know about you all.

We have become a Police State, but most Americans do not know it or admit it. This is not the same country we grew up in fifty years ago.
