We are looking at it from afar but it seems that better police, Highway Patrol and National Guard coordination is needed when there are outbreaks of violence by protesters such as what is occurring in Ferguson. The last resort was for Gov. Jay Nixon to call out the National Guard.
The protest, as we all know, is over the police shooting of an unarmed black youth. There are conflicting stories of what happened. A third autopsy is being performed to try to determine more about the shooting. It is known the youth was shot more than once. The name of the officer has been released. The officer apparently was injured in the encounter with the youth, who earlier was a suspect in a stealing incident at a store. However, the officer apparently stopped the youth for walking in the middle of the street.
