    After reading all of these posts denigrating policemen, I truly hope none of these people who detest them so much ever plan to use the services of these evil, rotten bullies in a time of need for themselves or their families.

    or who were allowed to act that way as two year olds. Throwing tantrums at two is normal. If the child gets what he wants by throwing tantrums, then that two year old behavior is likely to continue into adulthood.

That is how they justify it. It isn't "fair" that some people have more than others, so in their minds, looting is just people who have been unfairly treated, getting what is rightfully theirs. It's disgusting.
    I wonder if they would feel the same if they, or their parents or any close family member, had their buildings ransacked and then burned by a mob! I very much doubt it, lizzie - they would be screaming for retribution! What a disgusting display of humanity at its worst! Is this what justifies theft these days? :

    Greetings, lizzie.

    Pretty sure we all give a damn when a person is gunned down whether they merit it or not. But look at your characterization - the victim is automatically an angelic child and the officer is a "trigger happy cop". You have shown no indication that you would accept any truth that doesn't come with labeling all cops evil.

    Im under the impression that they majority of posters in this thread do not have any REAL contact with the inner city black people that tend to do such things. I was at one of FoMoCo older plants in dearborn. And someone couldnt get their candy out of a vending machine, so they started hitting the glass on the machine so it would drop. Well they ended up breaking the glass and within seconds it was like a feeding frenzy and the machine was cleared out of snacks. I couldn't believe what I had just witnessed, it was truly like people had lost their minds for that 30seconds.

    I have never seen normal decent people act like this. Yes, I have a limit. I also don't loot and riot.
    Yes, I don't recall many educated, white, professional, women to the manor born rioting in America or anywhere else for that matter.

    Do you recall any educated, black, professional women or men rioting in America or anywhere else?
