    When is martial law appropriate?

    When martial law is declare, freedom is suspended, sometime even democracy is suspended. Government troops, could be turning on its own people, even secret police, might exist. Sometime martial law can be consider appropriate under the circumstances, other time, when the government declare martial law, the public might disagree.  Under what circumstances is martial law appropriate and under what circumstances, when it is not?

    During the riots in Baltimore and Ferguson would have been appropriate, especially when the local government told police to get out of the way and let both locals and out of state actors riot, loot, murder and burn things down.
