St. Louis County Police Chief: We Needed 10,000 Officers to Battle #Ferguson Rioters (Video)

Ferguson looters carry big screen from rental center.

Police Chief Jon Belmar told reporters after a dozen businesses were burnt to the ground on Monday that they needed 10,000 officers to prevent the disaster that just hit Ferguson.

“I don’t think we were underprepared. But I’ll be honest with you. Unless we bring 10,000 policemen in here I don’t think we could prevent folks that really are intent on just destroying a community. It doesn’t take very long to throw some kerosene in a building and burn it as you’re running past.”
