Who's to Blame?

By Don Morgan 

Itr could happen anywehre--even in Texas--that's what one prominent civil rights attorney sees in the violence that has been occurring in Ferguson, Missouri.  

Randall Kallinen told 550 KTSA News law enforcement is relying more on military type weaponry because of what you're seeing on television. 

"Focuses on crime is one of the main news stories... when murder has been going down in the United States for decades" Kallinen said. 

On the other side though, Jack Rhinchich witht he National Association of Police Chiefs told 550 KTSA News officers have to be prepared for anything--and that means having some heavy arms behind them. 

"They're the tools of the trade, whether the public agrees with them or not. We live in a violent world, and we have to be prepared to deal with violence, whether it's terrorism, civil unrest, disorder--whatever the case may be" Rhinchich said.
