The police are, in fact, militarized and it does pose significant risks, not just to the black community but to all of America. I fear for our nation and what remains of our freedoms and individual rights that are rapidly being destroyed by an increasingly oppressive, coercive State. However, the misallocation of emotion and focus, fanned and directed by the President on down through the normal outlets of liberal propaganda over all things Ferguson, is likely more insidiously intentional than most can imagine. Besides clearly enhancing the fascist lefts efforts at redistributional goals by keeping the level of general social fear and unease high, the power of the federal state is always more achievable enriched during periods of social unrest. I must add, however, that the redistributional goals are a sham, an illusion to succor the masses with images of more loot at the government tit, when in reality it is all about protecting the privileges of the crony capitalist and political elites. Do I think that President Obama truly cares about the issues surrounding Ferguson, I hate to say it but, I doubt it.
If he did then why has black unemployment and the continued erosion of any semblance of civic society in the black communities not been addressed in ways that are not purely political. Free cell phones during election season to the black communities of important electoral states does not address anything but does express the deep cynicism of even the most prominent black politicians. There is no allowable dissent from the purely redistributionist solutions of the left and any black leaders that do so are quickly demonized by the white controlled media and the black political class that thrives on social unrest and pork barrel solutions.
No Ferguson will not be dealt with for what it truly represents, a social and class conflict segregated into a racial one to provide perpetual votes and gerrymandering opportunities to those that pander to this communities true and deep distress. Keep em down, keep em poor, on the dole, ignorant and docile–except outraged when needed. One cannot isolate or atomize such incidents or even the modestly enveloping generalized issues, for everything fits into a much broader mosaic. For the Ferguson puzzle is part of the whole, which is the picture of the American crony capitalist fascist state.
The militarization of the police has much broader implications than Ferguson and the bit actors playing out their well anticipated parts in that city are being manipulated beyond anything they can imagine. Nothing is at seems and he entire nation is at risk from the continued rise of the American Police State. It is not remotely so simple as racism and the Ferguson police. Racism there is still for sure, but it is not the real issue and the power elites, from Wall Street and Washington to the halls of the IMF and the United Nations, damn well know this. Play it again Sam. Why change the song?
NEW YORK—Just a little over a week after the explosive announcement that a white Missouri police officer would not be indicted for murder in the shooting death of a black teenager, New York City is on the verge of an eerily similar announcement of its own.
Garner was stopped on suspicion of selling loose cigarettes in July. Amateur video shows the black man telling the officers to leave him alone before police officer Daniel Pantaleo, who is white, used what appeared to be a banned chokehold.
The medical examiner found that the chokehold contributed to the death.

Dangerous distortions about cops shooting black men
One allegation is that 15-to-19-year-old black males die at the hands of the police 21 times as often as do white males of the same age. Another claim is that blacks commit violent crimes no more than two to three times as often as whites do.
But the original 21-fold claim is based on worse than unreliable data. ProPublica acknowledges that the data on justifiable police killings are “terribly incomplete. . . . Vast numbers of the country’s 17,000 police departments don’t file fatal police shooting reports at all.”
But they don’t make it clear that literally only a couple hundred police departments (217 in 2012, just 1.2% of all the departments in the country) report these numbers.
Even worse, the very few police departments that do report are predominately urban areas, which tend to have much higher concentrations of blacks. This skews the numbers to over-represent black deaths.
