As I said in an earlier article, the St. Louis police received their much-maligned military gear and arms from the Department of Defense. The chief said the equipment is what SWAT uses, it’s not the police.
Washington Post reports that half a billion dollars of military gear went to local law enforcement.
If Mr. Obama doesn’t like the police using tanks and armor, perhaps he should stop selling it to them.
The later it got Thursday evening, the younger the protesters got. One reporter described it as a partest. (party-protest)
Overall, it was calmer.
