I do not want Obama making any decisions about anything.

Legally speaking President Obama can not do that with out using the war powers act to suspend Posse Commitatus. The governor of that state can however call up the national guard.

Typical...look at the latest news as of this morning.....Michael Brown, who was robbing a store for cigars and the Ferguson PD brought this all on themselves...typical routine. Act up before the facts are known. Now...let's all burn & loot everything in the city & show the whole wide world just how victimized and oppressed and hugely pissed off we all are. Let's all get our simple asses right out there, right now. BOOM! Reallllllly/ Who's getting blamed while the street cameras are rolling? Who fault is the looting going to be? And...Blo-bama should shut his stupid blundering mouth right up...really...all he has ever been is a neighborhood organizer and now he's just itching to lend his lack of expertise to "solve" another ass over tea cup blow up such as a city's riot in the streets of the US. Ferguson, MO does not require any federal government intervention. Let the MO officials handle this. Jesus, Mary & Joseph, save us already.

An exception to Posse Comitatus Act, derived from the Enforcement Acts, allowed President Eisenhower to send federal troops into Little Rock, Arkansas, during the 1958 school desegregation crisis. The Enforcement Acts, among other powers, allow the President to call up military forces when state authorities are either unable or unwilling to suppress violence that is in opposition to the constitutional rights of the people.

What does it say about the idiots that destroy, rob and loot in their own neighborhood? A note to the news reporters--------- If you are going to interview someone, find someone who can actually speak like they have an education.

I feel for the cop, and the police chief. This kid was a thug. I'm sure he tried shoving the cop just like he strong armed the store clerk..sounds like he was trying to get the cops gun,but was unsucessful. Then you have these hood rats burning and looting the stores in their neighborhood. That makes sense , burn down the very stores that serve you wow what a mentality.

All looters should be shot just like the petty thieves that are? Rioting should be handled with an iron fist, rubber bullets bean bags, mace, tear gas and jail. Our country pussy foot around with too much. Store owners lock up and load up, shoot anyone that comes thru the door! Just LIKE THE Korean owners did in the LA RIOTS. The Govenor should already have the natl guard in there helping to put down anyone rioting!

The only way forward is to bring in the Missouri National Guard with overwhelming force on every street corner and arrest and imprison every last rioter and looter until the looters stop their behavior or are all in prison. Then conduct a measured investigation into the incident independent of the left wing extremist news media. They must stop blaming the police for the actions of the criminals.

From what I've read about the Enforcement Acts they mainly refer to civil rights issues and the state government being unable or unwilling to suppress the violence. Nothing from what ive read in the 3 Enforcement Acts could inherently qualify the situation in MO because there hasnt been any wide scale violence or ethnic intimidation with death threats against a racial minority.

The National Guard should be more than sufficient especially since 3 different autopsies show the officer did NOT shoot the suspect in the back.
