Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker activated the National Guard over the weekend after being asked by local officials whether the state would offer backup if public protests grew too large to handle in the wake of riots in Kenosha, Wisconsin. All the scheduled events went off without needing extra law enforcement and the guard was deactivated. Critics of the move say it could have stoked tensions and discouraged would-be protesters from taking part in peaceful demonstrations. Did the Governor do the right thing?
