Early Monday morning, Missouri Governor Jay Nixon ordered the National Guard to go to Ferguson and “help restore peace and order.” This decision came just hours after police used tear gas to clear protesters off the street as the situation becomes more and more desperate.
According to The Blaze, the riots continued to escalate Sunday night after Michael Brown’s autopsy results were finally revealed, and police used tear gas to clear the streets even before the midnight curfew.
“Based on the conditions, I had no alternative but to elevate the level of response,” said Capt. Ron Johnson of the Missouri Highway Patrol, who is command in Ferguson.
The situation has now gotten so out of hand that local police cannot handle it anymore. The question now is whether or not the National Guard will be able to whip these crazies into shape.
