The Ferguson event has presented a World of Monday Morning Quarterbacks. All have a chance to ponder, peruse, cogitate, pontificate, revise, restructure, and then elaborate their ideas. LEO's on the scene, in the moment of SECONDS must commit to a decision. After that decision that is then filmed, put on TV, commented on by a plethora of pontificators in the news that further excite the host of Monday Morning Quarterbacks we now have a Tsunami of Self Appointed Experts Tweeting, and Face Booking. The worst of the worst go on foot to Riot, Demonstrate, Loot and take advantage of their own perversions. LEO's have one of the toughest jobs. And I am NOT a LEO. I am a Forensic Psychologist at one of the largest Community Colleges in the US.

Amen Leonard.

Not too mention of course, the fact that generally all of the variables leading up to that decision/action caught in a picture or on video are excluded.
