With the rioting and looting going on along with the thugs doing the rioting and looting being armed ... consider it acceptable for order to be restored to the area ..
The reality is the majority of police in America are inadequately provisioned for the daily threat they encounter.

This is my 1st post after joining, glad to be here, I think this site is awesome.
With that said, the picture posted does not appear to be an MWRAP.
What do you expect of the police during this situation that they have probably never experienced or never want to again?
You have an entire "community" or what once was a "community" basically burning it to the ground with no respect for anything.
I won't comment on my feelings about what happened or who is at fault but the entire situation is obviously out of control. I can't blame the communtity for being upset but I also won't blame law enforcement for taking extraordinary measures to protect themselves during this ****storm.
