Ex-FBI Official: National Guard in Ferguson a 'Prudent Measure'

By    |   Tuesday, 18 Nov 2014 12:48 PM

The decision by Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon to declare a state of emergency and activate the National Guard in anticipation of the Ferguson grand jury's decision whether to charge police officer Darren Wilson in the death of Michael Brown is a "prudent measure," says Ron Hosko, a former assistant director of the FBI.

"The police are going to have a hard time predicting the scoop of the violence that might occur, how violence ignites, how it spreads — the speed of that in the community and the width and depth of it," Hosko told J.D. Hayworth on "America's Forum" on Newsmax TV Tuesday.

"For the governor to not call out the National Guard, he would face great criticism if things in Ferguson ignite substantially and law enforcement is in effect, overwhelmed, to not have the National Guard standing by would be a mistake, and he would be roundly criticized for it," he explained. "It depends on how the guard is used . . . how visibly deployed are they," he said.
