GUEST EDIT( )RIAL HANGING FIRST, TRIAL SECOND? by Sal Giarratani Last I heard, folks are presumed innocent until proven guilty. Too bad the mainstream media doesn't understand that our agitators like Rev. Al Sharpton, who seemingly prowls for good stories to milk. Latest example is the tragedy taking place right now in the City of Ferguson, a suburb of St. Louis, Missouri. An 18-year-old man was killed by a Ferguson police officer and immediately Sharpton and the liberal media outlets like MSNBC couldn't wait for the facts to be gathered before assigning blame. I will await the facts as they come in on both parties in this shooting. I will not rush to judge or defend. Let the facts fall where they may. However, I cannot begin to understand why the people of Ferguson have turned to looting their own community's business in the name of justice. Looks like a good excuse for some thugs to go on a free shop- ping spree and blame racism for their actions. Where is Rev. AI when you need him. He comes in, stirs up the pot and then disappears like the Legend of the Lone Ranger. There is no excuse for tearing down your own community. When the facts are gathered and investigated, we will know where to assign blame, but until then, we need to see the rule of law restored to the civil society of Ferguson, Missouri right now looks as law- less as ISIS moving through northern Iraq. Many people have taken issue with the militariza- tion of local police forces using war surplus stuff from the Department of Homeland Security, but now the streets of this community are actually being patrolled by the Missouri National Guard because the violence has become so threatening. Kudos to both Governor Jay Nixon and Captain Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol for attempt- ing to bring order back from disorder.
