    Not your example, but I have seen liberals point out sports fans causing mayhem. That behavior likewise I find repulsive and deserving of swift punishment. College students burning couches during spring break? Punish them. People blocking traffic? Move them to another location and tell them this is inappropriate.

    Public disorder is public disorder to me.
    Oh, I'm not disagreeing with you. However, the outrage here from many people appears to be quite selective.

    That's why I'm seen as an authoritarian instead of a sensible person to any given ideological group on the right circumstance.

    College hippies annoy and disgust me as much as Bundy supporters.

    We know there were outside agitators as well as outside protestors.
    Just as there was local agitators, protestors and looters.
    I haven't disagreed with that. In fact the video is in agreement with that. The article I posted earlier that you had a problem with pointing out that most of those who were arrested in Ferguson the first time it went up in flames, overwhelming majority did not call Ferguson their home!!!!!!! And last night was no different.
    Those arrested will face charges including arson, burglary, possession of stolen property, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful assembly, according to the county police department. Only nine of the arrestees were from Ferguson, a St. Louis suburb of about 21,000 people.

    And yes that is significant whether you agree or not. These folks that did most of the damage don't call Ferguson home.

    Did Keene get the national publicity that this case got? I don't believe it did. Nor were the Keene riots incited by adults (like Michael Brown's stepfather).

    You can't seriously be comparing some White college kids building some bonfires in the streets of Keene and getting into some drunken fights with the complete destruction of multiple buildings/businesses and looting in Ferguson last night.

    It didn't get anywhere NEAR the national publicity that Ferguson got. Now, a big part of that is because Ferguson was percolating for a long time, whereas Keene was pretty spontaneous.

    You're the only person I saw mention Keene. Vancouver also comes to mind, after the Canucks lost the Cup finals a few years ago.

    So what? And the city of Ferguson rallied together against the cop and the national black community rallied together against the cop and many people who know better - like you - were calling the cop a "murderer". And neither rally had any impact on the decision. Do you have any evidence that the cops paid off or persuaded the jurors to discount the evidence?

    Stop stretching and making nonsensical posts.
