    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.
    So let's cut to the chase. Is there a video anywhere of the shooting. I could careless about the looting and rioting silliness.

    Yet you still whine about Randy Weaver, showing your residual hate is still festuring .

    You don't seem to realize your hate filled rants are going to be here, for all to see, for as long as the board survives. So go ahead, continue on with the hate.

    You act as if you know this community pretty in depth. I'd be willing to bet you don't.

    And I have no problem with that, or my friends, family and employer knowing I'm clownboy. Because I don't do the knee jerk hate rants like you do. Would you like to get back on topic now?

    Nope. Not at all. Nor do I pretend to know how that entire community was brought up like the poster I quoted did.

    But I do know people and am putting my opinion in based on that.

    So now you want to get back on the topic--as if others aren't--another poor "deflection" card.

    No one mentioned your name "clownboy" until you did--as has happened in the past with you.
    Because I don't do the knee jerk hate rants like you do. Would you like to get back on topic now?
    I watched about 500 or so knee-jerk hate rants on Iphone before I got to my lap-top.
    Guess who had many of them ?
