Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon signed an executive order activating the Missouri National Guard on Monday afternoon.[Nixon Activates Missouri National Guard in Response to Potential 'Period of Unrest,' CBS St. Louis, November 17 2014]
According to a news release, the role of the National Guard is to “…support law enforcement during any period of unrest that might occur following the grand jury’s decision concerning the investigation into the death of Michael Brown.”
“As part of our ongoing efforts to plan and be prepared for any contingency, it is necessary to have these resources in place in advance of any announcement of the grand jury’s decision,” Nixon said in the release.
It's worth remembering that at this point, the media's Narrative of an unarmed "Gentle Giant" randomly murdered by a racist white cop has utterly collapsed. However, this doesn't seem to matter. So Democrats can whip up black voters and reporters can vent their hatred at whites living in the burbs, a lot of people are going to suffer. And the orders to let this happen are coming from the top down.
