  "What transpired in the streets appeared to be a kind of municipal version of shock and awe; the first wave of flash grenades and tear gas had played as a prelude to the appearance of an unusually large armored vehicle, carrying a military-style rifle mounted on a tripod. The message of all of this was something beyond the mere maintenance of law and order: it’s difficult to imagine how armored officers with what looked like a mobile military sniper’s nest could quell the anxieties of a community outraged by allegations regarding the excessive use of force.

    This is just another Black To School Free Shopping Spree, feral blacks are burning businesses, attacking those unarmed, blocking traffic and committing felonies, but YOUd rather the cops dress in party clothes and have tea with them! YOU make me sick with kow towing to felons. St Louis is now a war zone, the press have no business there, it is not safe nor sensible for them to be there.

    I wrote about this story here and its not sugar coated
