Ferguson, Missouri: How many will die before we intercede in the humanitarian crisis in our own country?

I'll keep this one short and sweet:

ISIS/ISIL is not as big a danger to Americans as are the police in Ferguson, Missouri.

As such, the following brief note was submitted via the White House's website:

Dear President Obama,

Please withdraw some troops from Afghanistan and/or Iraq, move them to Ferguson, Missouri, and deploy them to protect the people of Ferguson from their own police force.


A citizen who is horrified that this is happening in 21st century America.

I regret that I can't concur with your suggestion as I don't believe US soldiers have the proper attitude to protect Joe from Missouri in this situation. There are some times when simply demobilizing US soldiers are the best suggestion. This is probably one of them. When I was running for Mayor of Phoenix in 2011 I advocated for a demobilization of 700 city police officers. Not a single other candidate of the 7 candidates advocated for anything less than holding the status quo or even adding police officers (oddly that was not Stanton's position).
