I went with the first link, which was the Christian Science Monitor, but it’s all over the news:
Gov. Jay Nixon declared a state of emergency and activated National Guard forces in Missouri Monday, saying the state must be ready to protect residents if violent protests follow a grand jury decision on whether to indict Darren Wilson, the police officer who fatally shot an unarmed black teenager in August.
He said the role of both police and the Missouri National Guard will be to maintain safety and protect the free-speech rights of citizens.
I heard a lot of commentary about this on my drive home from work. One of the Seattle radio personalities opined that it was a good thing because the Army was trained for things like this, unlike the Ferguson police. I laughed and laughed.
The reality is: sort of. Ferguson, if the Guard shows up to your party, the rules have fundamentally changed, and you need to understand how.
