Former Red Sox pitcher Curt Schilling took to social media on Tuesday with a suggestion for how to solve the violence that is currently engulfing Ferguson, Mo.

In a post from his Facebook page, Schilling links to a video (WARNING: video contains profanity) of an American marine scolding a group of Iraqi policemen and states the marine and “3-4 of his friends’’ should be sent to Ferguson, as seen below in a screenshot from Boston.com’s Chris Caeser.

The violence in Ferguson began on Tuesday, when a grand jury chose not to seek an indictment on police officer Darren Wilson, who shot and killed unarmed teenager Michael Brown.

Protests sprung up in cities across the country on Wednesday in response what happpened in Ferguson, including in Boston, where hundreds of people marched through the city to protest the grand jury’s decision not to indict Wilson.

Schilling didn’t build that large social media following by keeping his mouth shut. Two weeks ago, he took to Twitter to rail against the theory of evolution.
