Take all military equipment away from the pigs, and make them walk the beat. Don't coddle these bastards, or let them play soldier boy.

Oh, and let the racial makeup of the force reflect that of their town/city.

Dig it.

Correct. Instead, we should allow criminals to assault police officers and then coddle the criminals.

Seems to be what the liberal media is after.

If Ferguson had a Department that was 70% black they would have to change hiring requirement to hire felons and illiterates Most departments now require that at least an associated degree . Hiring a majority of black officers is not only impossible it is racist

The Congressional Black Caucus voted to preserve police militarization

Michael B. Thomas/Getty Images
In June of this year, Rep. Alan Grayson (D-Fla.) introduced an amendment to halt the Pentagon's 1033 program, which distributes hundreds of millions of dollars of military-grade weapons and equipment to local police annually. The amendment overwhelmingly failed, and just seven out of 41 voting members of the Congressional Black Caucus (CBC) supported it.
That vote has drawn controversy in the wake of this summer's protests and grotesquely militarized police response in Ferguson, Mo. Ferguson's own congressman is Rep. Lacy Clay (D-Mo.); he is a member of the CBC, and he voted against demilitarizing police.
Now, The New York Times reports that the CBC is campaigning on what happened in Ferguson to turn out African-American voters for 2014, an effort which would presumably be more difficult were the CBC's record on police militarization more widely known.

I'm not for segregating either but that is a pretty ignorant thing to say. So is an all white force all heroin addicts, pedophiles, and serial killers?

This type of thing happens all the time in Chicago and Atlanta; a black kid getting shot. The novelty of the Missouri case is that it was a white police officer shooting a black kid, instead of the the usual black kid shooting an officer or another kid.

Maybe because they know better (more intelligence) and/or rioting/looting would not be tolerated? I'm just taking a wild guess as to some logical answers...
