Militarized policing epic fail

MRAPs in the streets, local cops decked out in military style assault gear, and flash bang grenades have failed to restore the peace in Ferguson, Missouri.

In an attempt to end bouts of unrest and rioting, Governor Jay Nixon, a Democrat, has ordered the state's Highway Patrol in as the new lead agency, a move intended to address criticism that local police were too heavy handed.

Will a change in policing tactics be evident as this situation rolls forward?
