Why combat troops? Why not send a construction outfit such as an engineer battalion if it has to be military? Why not do what the government usually does and contract with a construction company to build the treatment units? “Additional thousands of troops” results in a very large inexperienced construction crew for 17 treatment units. It doesn’t make sense.

CNN Nailed at Ferguson Protest

The last time I worked for a large mainstream media outlet was back in the early 80s, and I can’t imagine what it would be like now, showing up to cover an event, and facing public taunts and ridicule such as the CNN crew is subjected to in this video.
