YES! The police have shown they can't handle this.
NO! Bringing in the Nat’l Guard will incite more riots.

How laughable. The Army (National Guard) should be brought in to insure the police does not behave as a "gestapo". They should be there to protect the PEOPLE from the police, NOT the other way around !!!

The Governor of Missouri brought in their National Guard to protect police command post from the citizens of Ferguson. To ease the tension, the Missouri National Guard should create a buffer zone between the Police Department of Ferguson and Missouri State Highway patrol, not to protect law enforcement from the citizens. This just show how far this country’s Justice Department along with law enforcement, (the Police Department) has deteriorated into a totalitarian state controlled by a political police force that secretly supervises the citizens' activities, what we called, a police state! Where is Andy Taylor of Mayberry when you need him!

From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann is a literary descendent of Ben Franklin and Tom Paine. His unflinching observations and deep passion inspire us to explore contemporary culture, politics, and economics; challenge us to face the facts of the societies we are creating; and empower us to demand a better world for our children and grandchildren."
John Perkins, author of the New York Times bestselling book Confessions of an Economic Hit Man
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:

From Cracking the Code:
"No one communicates more thoughtfully or effectively on the radio airwaves than Thom Hartmann. He gets inside the arguments and helps people to think them through—to understand how to respond when they’re talking about public issues with coworkers, neighbors, and friends. This book explores some of the key perspectives behind his approach, teaching us not just how to find the facts, but to talk about what they mean in a way that people will hear."
Paul Loeb, author of Soul of a Citizen
