So far, tonight's protests in Ferguson seem to indicate that police being nice gets better results than police dressing like they're going to nuke you from orbit. Also, use of tear gas in war is forbidden by the Geneva Convention, perhaps it's time to get rid of it for domestic crowd control, too.
Also: Rep Steve King is a shtihead. www.salon.com/2014/08/14/republican_congressman_says_the_ferguson_pd_cant_be_racially_profiling_because_everyone_there_is_black/
Right now: listening to an Allman Brothers album: Eat a Peach.
More: apparently somebody quit jorb while wifing unit was gone, so until they get more staff, they're working six days per week. Which shouldn't be for too long. But, still. Hopefully she gets a different gig on a moderate-term time scale.
Other people who are shitheads: Matt Walsh. It's one thing to be a tone-deaf conservative without nuance, another to be one with no uncertainty. He has a severe lack of empathy and understanding of the nuances of any other position. And he's a dickhead.
