I think using the military to deal with problems that should be handled by the Cities and States would be a mistake.

The cities never should have allowed any of this to happen in the first place. So it should never have even been a question of whether to use the military.

We went to tear gas the first night of "protests" when things started getting rowdy and it set the tone for the rest of the protests. We also benefited from some sensible leaders in the city I work in that told the crowds essentially "if you're here to cause problems or to destroy our homes we will turn you over to the police ourselves" and things have stayed mostly peaceful with a few individuals arrested for their stupidity.

Safe travels to you and your family CR. Glad to hear you all are well
