Police in Ferguson are putting on a show of force on the third night of protests over the police shooting of Michael Brown.

Some would argue that something has already been started.

It’s understandable, yet disconcerting. It all boils down to a judgement call about how people will respond.

Looting stores, burning down businesses certainly isn’t the right response. Instant justice doesn’t exist in a nation of laws.

This looks like it could go bad very easily.
