Has there ever been a case where a riot (violence/destruction/theft/chaos/etc.) has not done more harm than good?

There are no "facts" established at this point, but that appears to be the police "story". We'll know more when the autopsy results are disclosed, stating where Brown was hit and from what direction. If the story as presented above, or something similar, ends up being true, Brown is hardly an innocent murdered by a police officer but potentially a person who attempted to disarm and potentially murder a police officer. If the reports of the alleged "strong arm" robbery are correct, perhaps that information came over the police radio at the time Brown was at the police car talking with the officer. If so, Brown may have been trying to escape arrest.
It's all speculation, but that's one possible scenario that makes sense to me. An officer simply murdering Brown in the middle of the day in the middle of a populated street makes little sense to me.
