    the death of micheal Brown was the injury that broke the patience of the community.
    What rubbish. We are not some community organism. If you're going to consider the community as a single minded being then that being also bears the brunt of the self imposed sickness that has infected it. Should we the greater community tolerate this being who keeps their area a ****hole of crime?

    What percentage of the people rioting actually care about racial tensions as opposed to those who want free stuff?

    And since when does everyone in the whole world get all the details of an active investigation. Is voyeurism/rubbernecking now a right?
    i don't condone the acts of the organization called anonymous, acting like a vigilante by publisheing private information without recognizing the potential damage of the information being released.

    Now let me ask you a question. Do the "open carry" protests we see fall into that same category?
    do you think the protest last night had the intention of formenting violence? or are we talking about different groups of people with different motives?

    The "libbos want to loot and pillage" card.
    Another blatant and irrational lie from the B.I.L. Zone .

    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.
    When people are desperate, they turn to the only venue for them to be heard. This statistic tells you everything you need to know about Ferguson, Missouri. The place is 70% African American and out of its 53 cops, exactly 3 are black.

    It's how they can be racist without actually saying what they really mean. Transparent as hell.

    It's okay for the TEA-party to threaten "2nd amendment remedies" since Obama has become President.
