It can be an act of opportunism, a chance, under cover of darkness, influence of chaos, suspension of order, to smash and grab and run away, arms heavy with loot. And it can be an act of outcry, a scream of inchoate rage. That's what happened this week in Ferguson, Missouri.

Baltimore officials are set to approve spending nearly $30 million to replace 338 aging vehicles, including firetrucks and police cruisers. "When you have police cars and fire and EMS vehicles that are out of service, it makes it difficult to have the amount of vehicles on the street that you need," Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake said.
