I'm still of two minds about the situation - mainly if Wilson acted in self defense or murdered. Both sides present compelling arguments that explain their side rather well. As far as the police go? I feel that the heavy militarization is uncalled for, even with all the rioting.
Some of the protests that have come out of this and other incidents, such as the infamous Shut It Down protests go a little too far in my book. These are when so many protesters gather in one spot they in a sense "Shut Down" wherever it is they're occupying. Be it highways, bridges in New York, Malls, Subways, etc.
