    What possible good would that do? Do you want to see him or his family harmed? Remember the Martin case where the media released the wrong Zimmerman, and the elderly couple had to leave their house? What you are doing is irresponsible and if you release more in such fashion I will report you.

    How on Earth could you have posted that? Now you're supporting putting him, his family and anyone he knows in jeopardy? This is as irresponsible a post as I have ever seen on this board.

    The looting and violence is in response to the shooting of Michael Brown when, according to police, Brown and another man assaulted the police officer, there was a struggle and shots were fired, ultimately killing Brown. The two men in the alleged assault were not armed. However, a different account was provided by one Dorian Johnson, who says the struggle was initiated by the police officer, who assaulted Brown - Brown broke free and started to run when the police officer then shot Brown.

    The point of this post is NOT justifying or dismissing the shooting which was the flashpoint of the violence (though I am resigned to the fact it will devolve into that at some point) but I'm more interested in why looting is the preferred method of showing distrust and dissatisfaction with police actions, when the owners of these stores which were broken into have absolutely NOTHING to do with the police shooting. Why is looting and destroying innocent people's livelihoods the preferred method of action in these circumstances? We see this time and time again - and I'm reminded of the 1992 So.Central LA riots.
    Looting is not venting frustrations nor is it protest. Looting is theft, and should be prosecuted as such.

    I think in here, if TDS follows through with his threat to post the man's name, address, etc. It should be treated the same as threat against another poster.

    I quoted his post but removed the information (officer's name and link). I'd suggest doing the same, j. That post really really bothers me (his). Let's not further the disgusting nature of his post.

    I'm a little surprised a post like that is even allowed on this board.

    Oh, I see. They get to arrest and manhandle the press for the first week. I was mistaken.

    I'm on my phone, but I will make an open plea to the mods to administratively remove TDS' s link from my quote of him, it is a disgusting display.

    He didn't say he got out and grabbed him. Wrong. Period.
