Peaceful protests, yes. Looting, burning, Molotov cocktails? Done. No more rubber bullets or tear gas now. Bayonets and .223 rounds.

So much for critiquing the "militarized" police. Now it's time for military intervention.

They gave these animals a week to calm down. Instead more of them are flying in from across America.

How do people stay out 24/7 protesting? Won't they lose their jobs? What about their mortgage payments? Utilities? Retirement? Who is paying for all this?

The question on the title is correct. Why bring the national guard, heck why have the police there. Pull all law enforcement out and the military board up the town and let those animals eliminate each other. It is impossible to tame wild animals.

When faced with mutiny, a ship's captain earns nothing but contempt, from his crew if he fails to make an example of the few by hanging them from the yardarm. This is no different from what is faced in every American city today whose peace and safety is endangered by lawless African thuggery and riot. "Calling in the National Guard", but preventing that military organization from using deadly force to make examples of the few will not only earn the increased contempt of the Africans, but that contempt will eventually spread to the White community as well.

Let's fully arm the National Guard and let them take care of business. We have to study these people and realize that from their ancestry they are used to malitia type governments and law enforcement. They only respond to the sound of guns so let them have it. Uncivilized wild humans that will never be tamed.
