Freedom. Stupidity. Riots. Race.

So what's been going on in Ferguson, MO?

There are a lot of opinions out there... some based in fact, some based in emotion, and some based on what the media is allowing to come out. Just as long as you realize that those three categories are not at all the same thing, you will be all right. So here's my take on it:

A cop shot a man. 
There's a good chance it was unwarranted. At this point we will never know the truth.

Cops shoot too many people. 
Not just "cops shoot too many black people." Cops shoot too many people, period. Cops shoot too many dogs, too.

Some people are just idiots. 
I can understand riots. Might well have been needed. However, looting was not needed.

Militarizing the police is a bad idea. 
Statism needs this to happen. Freedom is lost when this happens. Any questions?

This is why we need guns. 
This is why we need "assault rifles." This is why we need whatever the police have. This is why we need whatever the Army has.
