The protests were over the lie that a white cop shot an unarmed man in the back while he was surrendering. The protests were over the lies that black leaders tell over and over again to gullible people who want to live their lives as victims. The protests were over people not even caring enough to go out and vote.

Did the officers in Ferguson routinely patrol in SWAT vehicles and SWAT gear? Were citizens in Ferguson routinely harassed by the SWAT teams? Or did the SWAT equipment come out after the disturbance started?

It's an example of faulty logic. I think you're missing the point.

While there are many good things in this column, the situation in Ferguson was not caused by the police having military equipment. The presence of SWAT teams did not cause the situation to escalate. In fact, armed soldiers -- the National Guard -- were important in stopping the riots.

Wait, I get it! Blacks don't vote in Ferguson because Missouri doesn't have a voter ID law! Republicans want to pass a voter ID law in Missouri which would decrease the black voter turnout in Ferguson from 6% to what, 5.99%. Is that it?
Better spread the word, then, because there are plenty of people on this site claiming to be libertarians who are giving you a bad name.
I'd like to hear more from people with first-hand experience in Central America and less from talking heads on the talk-show circuit. Thank you
Another answer: Many so-called libertarians are really anarchists at heart.

Once again we find that getting your news and views from the guy running the deli counter in the basement of the Chicago Trib isn't a good start to writing an opinion column.
