I would expect there to be some military bearing and discipline, and a bit more common sense, coming from the US military. I don't think they are
power-tripping as hard as many police officers. That doesn't mean they should be there, but I just think they will hold themselves to higher
standards. But considering we don't see this often at all, I don't have a clue how the military will react. But I just know that, having served in
the military, there is not so much freedom of action. Or at least there will not be in a situation like this. That is just an educated guess. Now in a
war zone there is a bit more freedom of action, especially to use your weapon, but I suppose it will depend on the rules of engagement in Ferguson. I
do trust the actual military more than any police organization, including all these swat teams that every government department seems to have now. But
again, the military probably shouldn't be there in the first place, but I think it could work out better in the long run.
Now I do not condone taking away the rights of the people, and if these soldiers start getting crazy I will be just as mad as anyone else...But I just
don't think they will react as badly as the police. We will see though. I don't think this goes against the Constitution in any way, the deploying
of the National Guard, and isn't this issued on a state level? I'm relatively certain it is legal. Other things I am not so sure about, and I admit
I could be wrong.
