Prepper News Watch for August 14, 2014

Prepper News Watch

Another special coverage section has been added for the events happening in Ferguson, MO. There is much talk about the militarization of the police, but no one is asking the important question: What would you have the police do?

The police are there to maintain the peace and enforce the law. When you have people tearing up the town, looting, and committing other acts of violence, what are the police suppose to do? If you sent “Barney Fife” into that situation, he’d get killed. As they face an increasing amount of violence from protesters, the only logical response is to increase their defense posture.

Many of the pundits are making the claim how we wouldn’t have seen this 50 years ago, but they fail to recognize the violence being committed that we wouldn’t have seen back then, either (regardless that neither statement is true). I have no idea what the solution is, but placing all the blame on the police is not it.
