This gets my vote!We should just stop jerking around. Have the police simply stand down. Let the inmates have the asylum for awhile. Oh sure...we'll lose some people and a half dozen Subways or so...but we'll get this crap sorted out once and for all. The police shouldn't reengage until the public and politicians are BEGGING for them. My bet is that it will take 72 hours tops.
Honestly, what other option is there at this point? I'm all ears if someone has another suggestion.
