Crisis in Ferguson: More businesses looted overnight
St Louis County Police confirm at least 200 of their officers are on scene and helping handle the situation. They confirm the Domino’s Pizza on West Florissant was set fire and burned. They also confirm multiple businesses vandalized and looted. Unbelievably, County Police told Fox 2 News that its officers were at the Ferguson Market earlier when looters showed up, but were ordered to “Stand down” by incident commanders at the scene and basically withdrew and allowed the looters to have their way with the store.

I just read that Gov. Nixon (no relation AFAIK) has declared a state of emergency, and imposed a curfew.

Let's see if I can get this right. So someone does something I don't like to someone I probably don't know and as a result I should go steal some stuff.
Okay, I'm missing something here. I just don't get it.

And in return the someone stealing stuff over doing something they don't like to someone they don't know catches a bullet for stealing. Atleast that's how it would be around here.

National Guard being sent in.
After all the weeping and gnashing of teeth over "militarized" police, now the folks in Ferguson are gonna experience the real thing.

You do realize that the national guard troops (particularly at the moment) are trained in crowd control, probably at a higher standard than the local police?
