  1. I am thinking more and more that the shooter of the 2 police in Ferguson could be someone from the right who wanted to foment discord. If I were the police, I would review all the video available of the protestors. Some of the protestors made comments that there were people present that they had never seen at previous protests. I would look for a White man with military or law enforcement training. The shooting with the use of a hand gun from a distance of over 125 yards, requires someone with training and experience. The protestors were smart enough to realize that shooting at police would be counterproductive at a time when they were making progress. Who stood to gain by this action?
