    Misery in Missouri

    I'm not sure how many of you have been following this story, but the riots are apparently getting pretty bad. For those who don't know the Missouri police shot and killed an unarmed teen, witnesses say he had his arms up and was surrendering, but the cops say he went for the officers gun. And of course the ending result as per Midwest tradition is riots.

    Looks like state level LEOS are moving in to take control of the situation.

    It might. There's long-standing tension between the local LEOs and the majority African-American population in the area.

    Yeah but it seems to me most people don't make a distinction between local, state and federal LEOS.
    Don't get me wrong I do hope it does help and it probably is a good start.

    Around here we certainly do. There are five different police departments (including the University police, who may or may not count depending on your opinions) operating within three miles of my house. Purdue Police, LPD, WLPD, Indiana State Police and the Sheriff. Nearly everyone around here knows which jurisdictions you need to watch your P's and Q's in and which ones will (likely) treat you like a human being.

    Of course, being a white veteran who carries concealed and makes a point of telling them I'm carrying when pulled over, I'm playing on "Very Easy."

    IMO, you are talking about something totally different wetware. What he means, which I agree, is when **** goes south most people think cop=cop. Kid gets shot complying, people tend not to distinguish and hate everyone with a badge.

    Oh, I don't think you're wrong. But the Ferguson PD has basically been told they're not in charge of their town any more. The state also made a major effort to show that Ferguson's "under new management." We went from this:

    to this:

    http://politics.suntimes.com/sites/d...?itok=QY8JWeBk

    and a black man in charge. Yay for the Officer Friendly uniforms.

    I think it gives the people of Ferguson a chance to think about the difference in treatment they receive from the two on a day-to-day and from what I've been reading about the situation, it seems like the local PD's hobby is fucking with 2/3rds of Ferguson.

    BTW, I read a study about trust and police uniforms a while back. Basically people have a much higher level of trust for Officer Friendly than for Officer Tactical, even if it's obviously the same dude with the same pose and facial expression. I'll try to find it tomorrow once I've gotten a little sleep.
