Local Control

http://www.ksdk.com/story/news/local/2014/08/09/police-shooting-ferguson/13832083/

A police officer shot and killed an 18 year old man.  A crowd of hundreds rallied to protest the shooting.  There are too many occasions where people rush out and begin to protest without any idea about what happened or why.

Community leaders are doing people a dis-service by allowing people to riot, threaten and even shoot at police after a major incident.  Rather they should be working with the police to learn what happened and why.  They should be working with police before an incident happens to insure greater trust between local officials, police and the community.

Local police and local control are two of the most important aspects of American law enforcement.  The Federal government should not become involved in these local matters.  If a local agency is corrupt, then the county or state can step in.  People have a right to vote and should vote out elected officials that don't provide law enforcement they way they want it to be; that's what the SGT Says.
