Double post. Crappy sig.
I am gonna start off by saying I condemn anybody who destroys private property for gain or for payback. It's not called for.
But I will say this. Each side is egging on the other side. Be it the police who told the "mob" to bring it, or the "mob" who did bring it by destroying property. Then police responding by firing tear gas and rubber bullets. I have no problem with tear gas, I have a problem with firing rubber bullets, they are just as lethal as standard 9mm bullets. Seen situations like this many times as a kid visiting family in Northern Ireland, peaceful protest turns into a full blown riot just with a snap of a finger because both sides miscalculate.
Every normal man must be tempted at times to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin to slit throats. It is inaccurate to say that I hate everything. I am strongly in favor of common sense, common honesty, and common decency. This makes me forever ineligible for public office. H.L Mencken

It wasn't a friend that took that photo, but a pretty brave reporter who was later beat down by the mob. Luckily a preacher was there to stop the thugs.
The looter is still an idiot though, and I am glad he is, as he let the reporter take the pic without repercussions.
Then Carson turned, and came face-to-face with a looter who stood several inches taller and 100 pounds heavier. The man was in jeans and a white T-shirt. His face was wrapped in black. He looked Carson straight in the eyes.
“What are you doing?” the man asked, lifting the hem of his shirt.
Pinned between gray boxers and the waistband of his jeans: A handgun.

“I’m taking pictures,” Carson remembered answering. “Your face is covered. It’ll be fine.”
“Okay,” the man replied. He grabbed another box of lemon-flavored 5-Hour Energy.

No tear gas, no rubber bullets...just an audible warning and a little time to disperse, then sharpshooters engage people activly destroying property or looting. A gun-cam to confirm each shot.
You want to have a march? Some peacfull civil disobedience? A demonstration? No problem, more power to you.
Riot & die.
