Don’t get me wrong, I’m not in favor of rioting, but it does appear the police are overreacting.
My problem with militarized police is, as I’ve said before, they’re trained as police, not military.

Quoth Police Chief Tom Jackson
The whole picture is being painted a little bit sideways,” said Chief Tom Jackson…
That’s who’s out there. We’re doing this in blue,” said Jackson.
Someone’s in blue, but it isn’t the cops. That guy has his hands up and they’re aiming their assault rifles at him.
I’ve seen pics of that truck with a machine gun on top (not assault rifle, but what looked like a SAW, or Squad Automatic Weapon).
So an armored car and assault troops. That’s not cops, that’s the military. They can argue over who’s paying their salaries, but that’s pretty damn posse incomitatus.
